They look great

Bi-fold doors can be a stylish addition to your home and a great way to open it up, giving a more spacious feel.  

When you fold bi-fold doors all the way back it can feel like you’re letting your garden inside. While traditional sliding doors only open up half the space available, bi-fold doors can create a wide-open space that lets fresh air in and creates a sense of freedom in your home. They can also enable you to use your garden space in more creative ways.

Even when closed, they let in lots of natural light which can make your home feel larger, fresher and more open.

They’re also flexible – they can be designed to suit your home with a variety of finishes. No matter the look or style of your home, you should be able to find a style of bi-fold doors that will compliment – whether you want them to stand out or blend in.

They’re easy to install and use

Bi-fold doors are relatively easy to install. Because they can fold up, they can be easily carried through the house – you don’t need a lot of space to put them in place.

They’re also smooth to operate and move around because of their free-glide design. You don’t need a lot of strength to open and close them. In fact, they feel surprisingly light. You can also select an opening mechanism to suit you – there is a wide variety, and everyone has a different preference.

Maintenance-wise, they’re easier than you might think. They just need a normal cleaning detergent like your other windows.

They add value to your property

Bi-fold doors can make a big difference to the value of your property by making the garden much more accessible and making your home feel larger and more modern. They’re also very much in vogue at the minute, and can only increase the wow factor when potential buyers look around.

They’re also extremely safe and secure – multi-point locking systems, internal beading and high-security hinges all make them very resilient. In fact, they’re widely considered more secure than normal patio doors or sliding doors.

All in all, there are an awful lot of reasons to consider investing in bi-fold doors for your home and they don’t have to break the bank. If you’re looking for ways to freshen your home up, make it feel bigger or make it feel more modern then bi-fold doors could be an excellent option.
