Stylish bi-fold doors
Before we help you site your bi-folds, it’s worth sharing how many different types of bi-fold door you can choose from. Our internal bi-fold door range includes a variety of oak and white primed doors that you can use to replace a single door or double doors to create more space. Not only can you choose your finish but you can also choose a glazed option. This means that not only is there a style for every design theme but that bi-folds can be used in any home. The next question of course is, where will they go?
Bi-fold doors as room dividers
Possibly the most obvious of all uses is to divide rooms, enabling you to have a large room for entertaining and smaller rooms for privacy, or just to keep you cosy! When you divide a room, you will most likely prefer a pair of double doors, to ensure there is as much open space as possible. If it’s a larger room, perhaps you’ll need two pairs of bi-fold doors – they would certainly make an impact! And if you choose glazed options, you’ll be able to keep your rooms light and bright at the same time.
Bi-fold doors for smaller homes
The wonderful benefit of bi-fold doors is that, in any home, they will create more space. The ability to fold the doors back instead of having them opening into a room like traditional doors means that you are able to space-save, however petite your home is. Fabulous for flats and apartments as well as town houses and terraces, bi-folds are best when it comes to the bijou residence.
