As we’ve spent more time indoors, inside our homes this year, we’ve seen a huge increase in homeowners around Sussex and Surrey looking to make changes to their homes.
We’ve realised that a house is more than just somewhere we eat, sleep and bathe. Instead, we’ve seen the importance of making sure we feel at home when we’re at home. Making the most of our living spaces to enjoy the company of our family, master a new culinary skill or scouting out a private sanctuary spot to enjoy some R&R.
While there are some homeowners that have already created perfect living spaces to make the most of their homes, it’s caused lots of homeowners to consider how they can adapt their homes to make them more liveable.
Bowalker Doors are here to help.
We’re really appreciating our kitchens
From banana bread to fakeaways, home happy hours to whipped coffee, we’ve seen so many food trends grace our kitchens and social media feeds since March.
As a nation, we’ve taken this time at home to experiment with different recipes. Even though the restaurants, pubs and bars are back open, we have a newfound appreciation for the creations we can make and bake at home.
If you’ve found yourself struggling for space, feeling cramped in the 4 walls of your kitchen, running into the rest of the family rummaging through the cupboards for some snacks for their Netflix binge session, or searching for the perfect backdrop for your snaps of your latest kitchen creation, only to be met with dark, dull backdrops, you may need a kitchen extension.
Extra space and heaps of natural light can be added to your kitchen.
With widespan architectural aluminium, your kitchen can be extended. Bifold doors or lift & slide doors can be added to your kitchen, leading out onto the garden to create a more open space. As well as adding space, widespan aluminium doors will flood your kitchen with natural light.
Choose Skypod rooflights for optimum levels of natural light on flat roof extensions.
If your kitchen is at the front of your house rather than the back, you can install large aluminium windows for more light and a greater feeling of open space.
We want to create our own space to entertain ourselves
Once you’ve whipped up your amazing new recipes, you need a space to enjoy the fruits of your labour. Whether that be a home bar, a new dining room or a snug, homeowners have been craving spaces to replace the pub, bars and restaurants they missed during lockdown.
It’s easy to create bright, open spaces, stylish that make us forget that we’re within the 4 walls of our homes with the addition of widespan aluminium doors can do just that.
As well as adding extra light through the large glazed areas, and extending your living spaces to the outdoors thanks to the wide openings, aluminium doors add stunning style and can be designed in any RAL colour so you have full design flexibility. You can also choose from a range of configurations and opening styles so you can design the perfect space for you.
We need space to relax – on our own!
We can’t deny that being cooped up inside with our families has proven interesting. As much as we love them, no one can get on your nerves quite like your own flesh and blood.
We all need our own space to escape from the madness and enjoy some peace and quiet.
Perhaps you’ve found a forgotten corner of your house that no one visits, and you’ve claimed it as your private sanctuary. Although it’s quiet, if it’s dark and dingy, it can spoil the mood.
We want the style of our home to reflect our personal style
Have you been ordering bits and bobs for around the house to make it more homely and stylish? The more time we’ve spent at home, the more we’ve realised that how we furnish our home makes all the difference.
Colour and design style are ways for us to reflect our personal style within our home.
But it doesn’t stop at interior style. The style of our windows and doors is a great way to showcase our individual tastes.
There was a huge trend on social media for pink doors, with #PinkDoor reaching nearly 65,000 posts on Instagram. That’s because front doors are no longer seen as just a practical necessity – they’re a design choice too.
You can choose from a range of composite entrance doors – classic to contemporary – in a selection of colours, with lots of hardware options too, to give your home the entrance it deserves.
If you’d like to change the way you use your home, talk to the experts.
Spending more time at home has caused a lot of homeowners around Surrey and Sussex to re-evaluate whether they are making best use of their homes. We’re starting to assess whether our properties have enough space, light and style, taking inspiration from home trends on social media and in glossy magazines. But there’s nothing quite like seeing something for yourself, with our own eyes, in person. That’s why we were so pleased to reopen our showroom in May, after closing during lockdown. We opened our doors of our windows and doors showroom to Sussex and Surrey homeowners looking for ways to transform their homes

The pubs, bars and restaurants may be back open, but the appeal to make the most of the space we have at home is stronger than ever.
So many of us are undergoing home transformation projects, whether it’s because we’ve realised we need extra space, or we’re bored of the dated style of our homes, or just for something exciting to do! But for a lot of us, it’s because we’ve realised that we spend so much time at home – why not turn it into our ideal staycation!
One of the ways so many homeowners around Sussex have been transforming their homes is by adding a home bar.
A home bar is the ideal solution if you’re missing the endless supply of cocktails on holiday, by the pool, sea or overlooking the gorgeous sights.
Create your own home bar in sunny Sussex, and you’ll know no difference!
Start with picking the right space
First thing first, pick the right space for your home bar.
If you’re thinking inside, we would recommend choosing a room at the back of your house. That way, you’ll be able to appreciate the outdoors. You’ll feel less confined and can enjoy the garden views and beautiful weather.
If you have a big garden you want to make use of – have an outdoor home bar!
You can create a pergola in your garden for a real bar replica – not only will it give your bar a really authentic feel but it will also act as protection against the wind and rain.
Merge your indoors and outdoors
What really makes a home bar is the connection between indoors and outdoors.
You want your home bar to be an extension of your Sussex home and not look out of place or an afterthought.
To create a real bar experience, you need a seamless connection from the home and garden.
If you’ve opted to set your bar up inside, installing widespan doors that open up from the home bar to your garden will mean that drinks can be made inside and then taken outside to enjoy in the sunshine without any risk of spillages from squeezing through small back doors and running into anyone else. You can create your very own beer garden!
We know a big benefit of making drinks at home is that they can be as large as you want – filled right to the top. A low threshold option will make this transition step free, so there’s no risk of tripping and spilling your latest creation all over yourself, while you seamlessly move from inside to outside.
Widespan doors also mean that you’ll be able to enjoy stunning garden views, watching the sunset and the sky turn pink, and then look up at the twinkling stars.
If you’re setting up your home bar inside against a garden wall, you can set up chairs against the exterior wall, and serve drinks through a window! You could set up the bar on the inside of wall, serving drinks outside. For this, a large aluminium windowcan be installed for the perfect Italian inspired ‘wine wall’. Once used in the 17th century, Italy has revived the trend, which has since gone viral!
If you’re setting up your home bar in your Sussex garden, installing widespan doors will mean that you can choose how connected you are to the indoors – and who’s inside!
You can keep the doors closed if you’re enjoying an intimate date night, or open them up if you want to entice the whole family to join you outside for some quality time.
Having widespan doors means it’s easier to bring your glasses and bottles outside, without fear that you’ll run into someone squeezing through the back door and end up smashing your bar stock. It also means it’s easier to nip back in and wash your hands without leaving sticky cocktail finger prints everywhere.
Bifold and Lift & Slide Doors for your home bar in Sussex
Bifold doors work by folding away in a concertina style to reveal wide open spaces. You can choose to open the whole door for a completely clear opening, or you can fold it back as little as you’d like.
aïr 800 bifold doors are available with up to 10 frames, and each panel is available up to 1.2m wide and 3m high. This means you could create a wall with up to 12 metres of wide open space!

Bifold doors instantly transform a property
In the last few years, bifold doors have risen in popularity in the UK. Big expanses of glass, in the form of widespan doors, are taking the south of the country by storm.
Property owners across Sussex and Surrey, are becoming more interested in introducing this sort of architectural glazing into their homes, whether they live in modern houses or a more traditional property.
It is a fact that bifold doors can transform a home and we are seeing more and more customers asking for our help.
The aïr 800 is called the Rolls Royce of bifold doors, adds the most glorious amount of light to a room and can create a sleek look. Of course, they look stunning in a modern property, but at the same time, they look equally stylish if they are used in a more traditional, older house.
It is not uncommon for a country cottage or period property to have bifold doors installed at the back of the house, adding extra aesthetics to the rear.
If you’re keen to knit the inside with the outside, the age and style of the house simply doesn’t matter and that’s the beauty of using products from the aïr range.
The aïr 800 can create extreme style possibilities all year round. They work by having multiple glass panels which fold away to reveal an open space, without any obstructing frames or posts.
The concertina style folding can be configured to tie in with how you want to use your bifold doors. The doors can fold internally or externally, to the right-hand side, left-hand side or in the middle.
They produce minimal sightlines and effortlessly let more light into a space. You’ll see in the showroom how this expertly engineered design offers an impressive performance, while at the same time, creating a door tailored to the needs of your property.
aïr 500LS & 600LS aluminium lift & slide doors work by gliding, with the glass panels sliding behind one another. You can have as many as 6 panes using a monorail or triple track system to create a stunning wall of glass – which looks absolutely amazing.
Individual glass panels are wider than those used in bifold doors so you get fewer frames but remember they don’t open up completely.
Thanks to minimal frames, they make the most of what natural light is available, and you can choose if you would like the panels to slide open to the left or the right.
It is fair to say that the stunning aïr 500LS & 600LS aluminium lift & slide doors really do offer boundless possibilities as these doors can be as tall as 2.7 metres and as wide as 2.5 metres – leaving you with a wall of glass that’s up to 15 metres wide.
