Why add bifolds to a new extension project?

Most of us would like to have more space and many people are choosing to extend rather than move. If you are completing an extension on your property, you may be wondering about the right glazing. Bifold doors can add the perfect finishing touch to any renovation or extension project.

The trend for open-plan living and working continues to grow and bifold doors add a fantastic feeling of space and air by creating a better flow between inside and outside. It is no surprise they have attracted so much attention from architects, designers, and property improvement specialists.

Design flexibility

Origin bifold doors offer excellent design flexibility, so whether you are looking for a small set of bifold doors, a whole wall of bifold doors, corner bifolds, or Bay bifolds, you can create the perfect bespoke design for your new space. If your bifolds are at the back of the house, you might want to consider a traffic door, that works like a single door. Either way, there are countless design options to choose from.

The first step is thinking about how exactly you plan to use the new room. Whether it is for living, working, or entertainment, bifold doors can provide a solution. There are many configuration options and doors can open inwards or outwards, or stack to one side of the other. In terms of décor, they are available in countless RAL colours, from neutral tones and wood finishes, to bright colours. There are also dual colour designs, to coordinate with internal and external finishes.

Internal bifold doors

As well as external bifold doors, you may consider internal bifolds. This is a perfect way of dividing up a room and creating extra space where you need it and can also add charm and character. Internal bifold doors can also be supplied in uPVC or aluminium. Think creatively and discuss ideas with your builder or architect.


When you are building an extension, you will be conscious of security and keeping your property safe. Our Origin bi folding doors have features that exceed security standards, including PAS24 and Secured by Design. The doors are fitted with a unique eight-point locking system, that has robust zinc hinges and a cylinder lock, proven to withstand even the most determined on intruders.

If you have children or are thinking about having children in the future, there are other safety features that are designed with small hands in mind, like the finger-safe gaskets, so fingers cannot get trapped between door panels. Doors are also kept open with strong magnets, so they will not slam shut in the wind.
