While we have created a lot of custom built doors and windows for our clients in the Perth area over the years, our favourite type may be bifold doors. Bifold doors are one of the most versatile doors you can put in your home. They can open up numerous design possibilities that don’t exist with other door types.
Custom External Bifold Doors
One of the great things about these doors is that they are built out of two or more panels that fold against each other like a concertina. This means your bifold doors can be of variable widths, starting with two panels and going up to enough panels to stretch across an entire wall.
If you want three or four panels for a nice patio door, great. But you can also use ten or more panels to replace almost an entire wall without expensive structural repairs. They also make great pool house doors when replacing the entire wall of a pool house. This allows you to take advantage of the inside of your pool house.
Custom Internal Bifold Doors
We love using internal bifold doors to help manage an open floor space. One of the easiest ways to update and modernise your interior is to knock down the walls between the common areas of the home such as the kitchen, living room, dining area, family room and other common rooms and turn that part of your home into a giant, open floor plan.
Bifold doors can be used in place of walls. When they are open, they sit near the outer walls and you have an open floor plan. If you want to separate one or all of the rooms off again, all you have to do is close the bifold doors. This allows you to have a stunning number of floor plans in your home just by closing one, two or more doors.
