Bifolding Patio Doors- IN or OUT?

REAL bi-fold doors extending out into garden

For the last few decades now, the popularity of bifold patio doors has continued to rise, largely thanks to them being a fashionable and practical way of opening up a kitchen or living area to the great outdoors. 

The concertina opening style and tidy finish of bifolding doors, or folding sliding doors as they are also known, has allowed homeowners to create a seamless link between home and garden.

Bifold doors have played a large role in the ‘don’t move, improve’ idea that has encouraged homeowners to find extra living space in their home by building a kitchen extension or single storey extension instead of moving out.

A recent article from an industry commentator, however, has suggested that people are beginning to shut the door on these, well, doors, and look at other options. 

Although there are other ways of connecting indoors and out, such as French doors, bifold doors remain an extremely popular choice with the modern homeowner and are rightly near the top of most people’s shopping list when planning a home extension.

At Sterlingbuild, we feel bifold doors are still as trendy as ever, so much so that we have launched a new range of impressive aluminium bifold doors from REAL.

On top of this, we also provide a made to measure service where you can put together your own configuration of uPVC bifold doors to match your designs.
