Benefits of Bi Folding Doors

Choosing to install bi-fold doors will prove a brilliant addition to any home, providing a stunning contemporary environment to work, rest and play. It’s the most effective way of opening up your home without compromising the amount of open space you can bring in, while being the focal point of any kitchen, dining extension or lounge. There are many reasons why bi-fold doors are an ideal home improvement solution but here are just some of the fantastic benefits.

Flood your home with natural light

Whether open or closed, bi-fold doors allow maximum sunlight into your home turning a normally dark room into a space full of zest and life where you want to spend more time.

Outside/Inside living

With bi-fold doors you don’t need to physically be outside to feel that sense of freedom, as unlike conventional sliding doors they fold right back meaning there is greater space. You experience the comfort of being indoors while being able to enjoy your outdoor space.

Take up little space

When bi-fold doors are open they take up very little space meaning they cause virtually no disturbance to your home’s natural flow. Unlike patio doors, which must slide behind another window or door, bi-fold doors collapse back on themselves offering the benefit of opening up your wall completely.

A set of bi-fold doors allows you to open them to any width within the frame and customise where the leaves split. The way they can open into or out of a room and fold to the left or right means that when you compare them to a normal or sliding door, they are far more flexible.


A greater level of security is offered with bi-fold doors as they feature multi-point locking systems, internally beaded frames and high-security hinges, whereas other types of glass door tend to have just one locking point.  

Low maintenance

Like most other windows and glass doors, they require cleaning regularly with detergent to ensure they stay looking spotless. But as they don’t have multiple panes or frames they’re generally easier to clean than most, and other than that you can just sit back and enjoy them.

Aesthetically pleasing

Bi-fold doors make your home look modern and slick on the outside and provide a luxurious addition overall. You can choose from a range of styles and over 200 colours to either match the rest of your home or stand out to make a statement.
