Choose bifold doors in your new open plan extension

When looking for more space in the home, there’s one question that springs to mind – should I improve or move?

While the thought of moving can be tempting, we’re often brought right back down to earth when thinking about finding another dream home, picking another area, a longer commute to work, packing up all of your belongings, redecorating, dealing with paperwork and not to mention the housing market.

Recent research shows that the cost of moving is now over £10,000, so it makes more sense to put this cost towards improving your home and increasing the value of your property. And with so many home transformation products available, it’s never been easier.

Why do you need to extend?

There’s a multitude of reasons why homeowners should extend. The most obvious is to add more space, followed by the need for more light and style.

The additional space can be used for a number of things: a living or dining room, a kitchen, a snug retreat, a home office, a home gym, or a playroom for the family.

Extra light has been proven to attribute to the happiness and health of homes, as well as making your property much more inviting.

Extending your home will add stunning style like no other, transforming your home into something that wouldn’t look out of place in a row of show homes or in a glossy magazine.

Bifold doors are the perfect way to finish your extension

When you’re looking through home interior magazines or on social media for inspiration, you’ll find that a lot of extensions feature bifold doors.

Bifold doors are the top choice for extensions as they offer the opportunity to entirely open up a room, add a beautiful amount of light and style with walls of glass or open space.

How do bifold doors work?

Bifold doors work by being installed on large walls, with multiple glass panes that neatly fold away in a concertina style to reveal a completely open space.

Bifolds can be installed internally or externally. For extensions, it’s ideal to choose bifold doors on external walls to create a truly open plan feel, however this can be complemented by interior bifold doors that section off the extension from the rest of the property.

You can choose whether your bifold doors fold to the left or right hand side, and stack internally or externally, depending on your space and needs.

Bifold doors make the most of garden views, add light and will open up your home
