Why should you use Bi-folding doors?
If you use Bi-folding doors in place of traditional doors there are a lot of benefits that come with this.
Flexibility – there are some places in a home that you need to section off such as built-in cupboards in a bedroom or a closet in the hallway for example. Traditional doors, although fantastic quality don't offer as much flexibility in terms of opening up the space. With Bi-folding doors you can pretty much install them anywhere you wish.
Less Space – The doors themselves don't need to be centered onto a supporting wall and this gives you more options with where and how to install them. By using bi-folding doors this offers you many more options as a homeowner and more flexibility in design.
More Light-If you're going for exterior Bi-folding doors that may lead out onto a patio, garden or terrace then it allows more light to flow into your home. A traditional door would block some of the light from one side whereas if you can completely open a space into your home the light will flood in.
Partial Openings – Bi-folding doors offer the flexibility to be opened to a desired width. For example if you have exterior to interior link doors they can be opened fully to become one with the outside world or if the weather's not so good then you can close the doors depending on how much light and air you would like to let in.
