At Fremantle Door & Window Company, we offer a wide selection of custom external doors to help you improve and modernise your home. But how do you choose which style or styles is right for your home? Here are a few of our favourites and what they are most commonly used for.
Bifold doors are most often used for patio doors or pool house doors. Bifold doors are a series of clear glass panels with timber frames that fold against each other when the door is opened. They provide the best design possibilities if you want to have a really wide opening. They also utilise the opening space better than any other door because the doors fold and rest at the side of the doorway.
They are the best doors for integrating an entertainment area or integrating the outdoors into your home. They turn alfresco living areas into extra home space. They can turn a drab pool house into something that will remind you and your guests of an elite resort.
Some people just don’t like the design of bifold doors. If this is you, the next best thing for outdoor entertainment or a patio is a sliding door. Sliding doors can’t go all the way across a wall like bifold doors can and they only open up to half of the width of the door.
However, sliding doors are an old standby. Their combination of timber frames around large panes of glass provide a great view and a traditional aesthetic to any home. They are easy to operate; just slide them gently in the track.
Solid Timber Front Entry Door
If you need to replace your front entry door, we can build one for you out of solid timber. We recommend a dark stain to give a prosperous look to your entry door, reminiscent of the CEO’s entry door in an exclusive office building.
