We love creative use of bifold doors to provide unique benefits to homeowners. One of the more interesting and inspiring trends we have seen in Perth during the last year or two is the use of wall to wall bifold doors with an alfresco living area on the other side. This is a great solution for a number of reasons. Here are a few.
What are Bifold Doors?
Bifold doors come in hinged sections. Each section consists of our specially made glass in a frame made of sustainable timber. Any configuration of two or more sections joined with hinges can be called a “bifold door.” The hinges are configured with opposite direction folds in sequence. This means they fold together like an accordion.
Bifold doors are a great way to modernise a home without spending a lot of money. They create more space in a home because they can fold and be put to the side when opened. They let a lot of light into any room, creating the illusion of even more space.
But the main strength of bifold doors is that they are, by far, the best doors for integrating nature into your home and vice versa. Nowhere is this more brilliantly displayed than in an alfresco living area.
Bifold Doors and Alfresco Living
Bifold doors make the perfect transition between your home and your alfresco living area because they can be removed and set to the side. This effectively expands the living area of your home without building an addition.
The traditional set-up would be three or four panes leading to a deck or a patio that has been configured for alfresco living. However, we are seeing a trend towards people opening the entire width of their homes to a garden and patio configuration.
