One of our favourite projects is when a customer asks us to provide bifold doors. In particular, bifold doors are perfect for a patio or alfresco living area, especially in Perth where we love our BBQ. So, why do we like bifold doors so much? There are numerous reasons. We are going to tell you about bifold doors and why we like them.
What are Bifold Doors?
Bifold doors are doors that consist of any number of glass panels in timber frames. They are hung from a track at the top of the doorway and are connected together by hinges. The panels fold together, creating space and allowing the door to open. They are called “bifold” doors because they most often consist of four panels, with two pairs of two each. Each pair folds against each other for a total of two folds.
Why Bifold Doors are Great for a Patio
Bifold doors are part of what we see as an alfresco living mini-revolution in the Perth area. They are the best door for seamlessly integrating the outdoors with the inside of your home. In other words, they can help turn your patio or alfresco living area into part of your home. This expands your living area and provides a great place for entertaining guests.
A timber framed bifold door is even better because the timber provides an aesthetic that even further integrates your home with nature. It makes your home look like part of your garden and your garden look like part of your home. A bifold door allows for a wide opening, nearly twice the amount of opening that a sliding door can provide.
Bifold doors also allow a lot of sunlight into your home, which is great for a family room, a living room or an open floor plan.
