Add bifold doors to house extensions for added luxury
Adding a house extension is one of the most popular home improvements in the UK. Creating more space can add value, as well as making your home more versatile and welcoming. Whether you’re increasing the size of your kitchen, or adding a sun room or orangery on the back, your new extension could transform the way your property looks and feels.
When you plan your extension, you’ll need to consider how the outside and indoor space will flow. Bifold doors are a proven advantage, particularly at the back of a house. If you’re planning your extension now, and you’re thinking of adding a bifold, here are a few good reasons to get a quote for a set of Origin bifolds.
Bifolds are customisable
Are you adding a contemporary extension to a period property, or is your extension designed to blend in with the rest of your home? Whatever your requirements, there’s a style and colour of bifold door that will suit your home improvement project. Bifolds can be supplied in uPVC or aluminium, in a range of colours and finishes. We can even supply bifolds with a realistic wood grain effect that looks exactly like the real thing.
Bifolds are safe and secure
Bifold doors are resistant to burglary and fitted with high quality locks. We can also fit child-safe hinges that prevent little fingers from being caught in the frame.
Bifolds keep your home private
Your bifold doors can be fitted with integrated blinds that prevent prying eyes from seeing in. Not only are these blinds easy to operate, but they look much neater than curtains, and they don’t get in the way of the doors when it’s time to unfold them.
Bifolds are low maintenance
Old-fashioned windows and doors require regular maintenance, and tend to look scruffy as they age. Timber doors need to be painted, and timber window frames can become twisted which causes draughts and noise pollution. With a bifold, all you need to do is wipe the frames occasionally, or ask your window cleaner to give them a rinse. They’re designed to be completely maintenance free once they’re fitted by our professional installers.
Bifolds are affordable
If you’ve seen bifold doors on shows like Grand Designs, you could be forgiven for thinking they’re incredibly expensive. In fact, a set of bifolds doesn’t cost much more than an equivalent set of French doors. If you work your bifolds into the design of the extension, the builders can prepare the opening in advance, so the bifolds slot right in with minimal fuss. We’ve blogged about the maximum and minimum sizes for bifolds, if you’re curious about whether your extension is big enough.
