The Benefits of Bifold Doors

Bifold doors are becoming increasingly popular in the UK. Nearly every home makeover show on TV seems to use Bifold doors as a means of letting in natural light and connecting the outside and inside spaces of the property being transformed. Bifold doors create a wow factor. They can turn the darkest, most uninviting rooms into areas you want to spend time relaxing. But are they suitable for all properties? In this post, we take a look at the benefits of bifold doors to help those who are considering installing them in their own homes.

The Benefits of Bifold Doors

Natural Light

One of the main reasons that people have bifold doors fitted is to increase the level of natural light in their property. Bifold doors effectively turn a wall of your house into a window allowing natural light to flood into your property, even in the depths of British winter.

There are hundreds of studies into the benefits that increased exposure to natural light has on humans. Therefore, not only do bifold doors help improve the appearance of your home, they can also have a positive impact on your health and well-being.


Bifold doors offer a huge amount of flexibility and can be designed to suit your specific requirements. There is a huge choice when it comes to colours and styles which allow you to create doors which are bespoke to your property. With up to seven panels and the option of doors that open into the property or out to the garden, they can be adapted to suit almost any home.

Connecting Spaces

By fitting bifold doors, you are effectively linking your outside and inside spaces. In warm weather, you can throw open your doors and enjoy the benefits of open plan living.

Easy to Maintain

When you choose aluminium bifold doors, each panel is constructed from one frame and single pane of glass. Simply wipe down your windows with glass cleaner for a sparkling finish. Alternatively, there are some great window vacuums available that produce a stunning streak-free finish without requiring any elbow grease!

Fit and Forget

With a ten year guarantee you can have total peace of mind that once your bifold doors are installed, in the unlikely event of an issue, it will be quickly rectified.

Create an Illusion of Space

Many people think that bifold doors are only suitable for large rooms. In fact, Bifold doors are a great choice for rooms of any size. When fitted in a smaller space, they create the feeling that the room is much larger as your eyes are drawn to the outside space rather than the confines of the room.

Energy Efficient

In the world today, energy efficiency is hugely important. With climate change being such an issue, the last thing you want is to make your home less energy efficient by replacing a wall with glass doors. Modern aluminium Bifold doors have an outstanding thermal efficiency which means heat loss is kept to a minimum.
