SLIM SIGHTLINES

Origin bifold doors can transform your living space and open up a multitude of possibilities in your home, making it a lighter, more welcoming environment in which to live and break down the barriers between inside and out. No other item in your home can transform your living space in this way. Recent surveys suggest that the inclusion of a quality set if bifolding doors is likely to be more important to potential buyers than a new kitchen or conservatory.

 

The concept of bifold doors has come a long way from the patio doors of the mid 1900's which were fully-glazed but basic sliding or opening doors, whose quality of construction was sometimes questionable. The new alternative is cleverly designed, aesthetically beautiful, bifold doors that are energy efficient, provide better security and safety, and when constructed from aluminium, are maintenance free.

WHY BIFOLDS?

 

The advantages of bifold doors over traditional sliding patio doors is that unlike the latter that typically only open up half of the available opening, bifold doors fold back to just a few inches of the opening so considerably more of the outside environment can be enjoyed, utilising space as never before and making them the ideal choice for apartments as well as houses. Combined with longevity, the convenience and versatility they offer is endless.

 

You only need to flick through any of the glossy home improvement or lifestyle magazine, such as Grand Designs, to see why they have become the product of choice for designers and architects aiming to make domestic architecture more interesting.

FEATURE FILLED

A key feature of bifolding doors is their ability to seamlessly open up the space between the house and the garden, and due to their unique flushed tracking systems, you can extend for instance a tiled kitchen or conservatory floor right through to the outside, which will enhance a patio area and create one large living space, ideal for entertaining and taking full advantage of the summer months.

 

One of the key capabilities of bifolding doors is that they are totally retractable and there are multiple opening configurations to choose, from opening into or out of a room and folding to the left or right, to a corner configuration set which can be installed to wrap around the side of a property transforming a dark corner into a feature that floods light into the room. Whichever option you choose, the result is always the same - more light and space.
