Bifold doors are becoming extremely popular in Perth. While you don’t see them as original equipment on “spec homes” very often, they do seem to be the door of choice for people who want to modernise or update their homes without spending an arm and a leg. There are some great reasons for this.
Bifold doors are not only great to look at, they are extremely versatile. They can be used to turn a patio or deck into an alfresco living area because they open so wide. When a bifold door opens, it provides an opening almost as wide as the entire window. All of the panels slide to the side and lay against each other. The only space they take up is the thickness of the panels multiplied by however many panels the door is made out of.
When combined with fly screens, bifold doors provide the most efficient ventilation of any door design. They can also be covered to provide plenty of privacy when desired. Because we make our doors out of special, locally sourced weatherproof glass and ethically sourced timber, they are as energy efficient as any door on the market.
Bifold doors also have a lot of uses as internal doors. A solid timber version can be used for closets. A lot of people prefer a design in the middle consisting of timber slats, like a faux louvre window.
But the most impressive use of bifold doors for a home’s interior is to create privacy in a modified open floor plan. Bifold doors can be used to create rooms such as hobby or reading nooks. When they are open, the home has an open floor plan. But when closed, they can be covered to create a private room.
