Imagine a room in your home as you make your way through the seasons. Do you notice anything other than the change in temperature? Are you aware of the way in which light levels flicker and dance? Do you notice the weather before you step out into it? Does your home feel gloomy at the first sign of autumn? Does SAD slowly creep and meddle with your mood?
Increasing the natural light that enters your home can positively impact upon your lifestyle in many ways, and there are various options for achieving it. Today, we’re looking at one of the most popular, attractive, functional and affordable options: bi-folding doors.
How to Incorporate Bi-fold Doors into Your Home
- Home extensions – Whether a conservatory or kitchen-diner, Apropos bi-fold doors can be the perfect finish to any home extension. Not only will they let in an enormous amount of light, but in finer weather they can be folded right back to bring the outdoors in, while providing thermal protection year-round.
- Patio door replacement – You don’t need a home extension to enjoy bi-fold doors; they can work equally well in an existing sittingroom, diningroom, or even kitchen. Because they don’t need space on either side of the aperture, bi-fold doors allow you to completely maximise the potential of the room you have. As all Apropos products are bespoke, even the smallest of rooms can benefit from beautiful bi-folds.
- Internal room division – If you like the idea of open-plan living but know that it won’t always be practical for your lifestyle, replacing an internal wall with a set of bi-fold doors can give you open-plan on demand and peace and quiet when you need it, without impacting on the spread of natural light.
- Boost your balcony – Even upper-storey rooms can be brightened by bi-fold doors. How about improving access to your balcony? It wouldn’t be the first time that we’ve installed bi-folds in a bedroom, or even a high-rise apartment, helping home-owners to get the best of their locations with bright and breath-taking rooms.
