At Fremantle Door and Window, we create and install numerous varieties of custom built doors and windows. This may come as a surprise to some, but day after day, year after year, our most popular product to create and install is bifold doors.
This raises an obvious question: “Why are bifold doors so popular among Perth homeowners?” Here are some of the reasons why so many homeowners are going with bifold doors in so many different situations and designs.
Let the Sun Shine In
Bifold doors let a lot more sunshine into your home than any other door. No matter what design you use, indoors or outdoors, bifold doors are wide and made of glass with timber frames. Letting a lot of sunshine into your home makes it look roomier. Sunlight also makes a home look more contemporary and more cheerful.
Not only do bifold doors let a lot of sunshine into your home, they also give you great views to the outside. This is especially relevant if you love nature, love your garden or live in a scenic area. You can make bifold doors as wide as you want. They can even extend along the entire length of a wall if you like.
Maximum Opening Space
Bifold doors open to more than 90% of their width. The doors are on hinges and open to one side or two sides. The panels rest against each other at the side of the door, leaving the rest of the door wide open. This is great for connecting your home with your garden or an alfresco living area. It is also great for connecting interior rooms to each other.
Perfect for Entertaining
One of the most common and well-received uses for bifold doors in Perth is for connecting the inside of a home with an alfresco living area. Because bifold doors opens so wide, they turn the alfresco living area into a part of your home. This setup makes entertaining easy and fun. Whether you have a patio, a deck or a full-fledged alfresco living area with professional cooking equipment and flat screen TV’s, bifold doors turn it into part of your living room, family room or rec room.
Flexible Design Options
We love bifold doors for the numerous design options they provide. We already mentioned using them to integrate your patio or alfresco living area with the inside of your home, but there are many more options inside.
One of our favourite setups is to knock out the walls between common living areas such as the kitchen, dining room, living room and family room and turn them into a modern open floor plan. Bifold doors are perfect for this because they can be used like walls to separate the rooms but can be opened to turn your home into a giant open area. When they are closed, they still allow a lot of light in. When they are open, they let in even more. Open floor plans are dominating modern design at this point. If you want to modernise and update your home for the lowest possible cost, interior bifold doors are the way to go.
Add Effective Living Space to Your Home
Because bifold doors store so neatly to the side, you can use all of the space in front of them as living space. With a standard door, you have to keep the space in front of it clear for when the door swings. With a bifold door, you can do whatever you like with the space. Not only do bifold doors give you more space, but all of that sunlight and open floor design makes your home look even larger than it is.
