Having a bifold door will turn your extension into something extraordinary. It can help open up your home because it lets natural light flood in, saving you money on your energy bills. But when considering your new door, there are many options for you. The doors are created with your flexibility in mind because we want it to be tailored bespoke to your needs. Most people have their doors opening outwards because it will give you a seamless connection to your garden. What’s more, they won’t bang into the furniture, allowing for a clearer entrance. The doors will protect you against tough weather conditions because water won’t drip inside. This is because of the doors’ being airtight and watertight, saving money on repairs.

Another way you can customise your doors is to include a traffic door in your property. A traffic door is a door that opens on a single leaf without opening the other panels. This is built as an element to your bifold door which gives you easy access to your extension. It is suitable in warm weather because you will benefit from a high standard of insulation, whilst keeping natural light in your home.


Bifold Doors Extension

There are plenty of ways to design your bifold doors. We offer a bespoke range of styles and colours to choose from. If you are lucky to have a wide back garden, then you can consider installing more than one door to your property. Each door will bring more natural light into your property, reducing the need to rely on electric lighting and helping to make your home thermally efficient. This will save you money on your energy bills because natural heat will be retained. The sightlines will be clearer, opening the first floor in your garden.

If you are looking for a softer finish, then wooden frames are an excellent choice for your home. It's ideal if you are looking for a classic feel to your home, and as wood is a natural insulator, it will keep your home warmer for longer. If your extension is similar to a sun room, you will make the room as transparent as possible.

Bifold doors have a stunning look to your extension because they are compact, folding outwards like a concertina. You also have a choice in how they are stacked: they can split down the middle or fold outwards left or right for fresh air to get in easier. If your extension is small and you don’t have a lot of space inside, then go for outward panels which will give you clear views of your property.

If you have a single storey extension and want to entertain guests, then a smaller door will increase the floor space, allowing for a bigger kitchen and a luxury feel. The doors are available in an outstanding range of colours, but a black door on white walls will give this extension a modern feel.

However, contrasting materials also work when it comes to installing bifold doors to an extension. If your extension is made of wood, then an aluminium door gives your home a natural feel. It is an organic design that brings its personality out. On the other hand, coordinated colours that match the scheme of your extension will work well because they blend in seamlessly with your extension. If you want to choose a door with a soft green shade, it gives your home a natural feel.  

If you have a bigger property, then a wraparound bifold door will suit your extension as well. This is ideal if you want to make the most out of your garden because the doors can be joined by a mullion which gives uninterrupted views in the backyard. This lets the door open out in a wider space, which is perfect if you have guests over for a barbeque or an evening dinner.
