Are Living Room Bifold Doors a Good Idea?

You spend the most time relaxing in your living room. You may even work, eat, and study there. Bonus points if your home is open plan and you also prepare food and wash clothes in the same space. But at the end of a long, hard day (or the start of a very sunny one), your living room is the heart of your home where you go to relax.

Does it ever feel stuffy, like your windows aren’t giving you enough airflow? Is it difficult to feel the sun on your skin with your wall blocking the way? Perhaps you feel restricted inside your own home and don’t feel like going outside. Afterall, what if it’s pouring with rain and you just want to enhance the sound without getting drenched?

Well, we’ve got a solution for you! In this article, you’ll discover the benefits of living room bifold doors. Say ‘goodbye’ to those boring, old doors that never have enough space, and ‘hello’ to something new and much more energy efficient.

Natural Light

With living room bifold doors, you can maximise natural light where you otherwise wouldn’t. Enjoy a brighter day with extra vitamin D that improves your wellbeing. If you don’t get out much, we certainly recommend a living room with bifold doors.

Don’t worry if there’s too much light, you can still install curtains or blinds to keep your home dark at night. On the other hand, if you’re a night owl, bifold doors give a beautiful view of the constellations!

Better Airflow

With a connection straight to the outside world, it’s hard to imagine why you wouldn’t want a living room with bifold doors. Not only can the darkest of rooms become a bright haven, but the driest, stuffiest rooms can be filled with natural air too. Bifolds will give you so much more than your average door or window.

Gone are the days where you’d have your aircon or radiator on full-blast. Make use of the cool breeze and sweltering sun, listen to the sound of rainfall, smell the fresh flowers, and relish in the atmosphere around you. Not to mention, your sinuses will thank you later when you’re sick from a cold and wishing for a little more airflow without going outside.

More Security

Do you have a garden filled with children and potentially hazardous playground equipment or toys? Perhaps you’re living on the second floor of flats with a busy road underneath you and a balcony with gaps between the bars?

Bifold doors give you the ultimate view of potential dangerous situations. You’ll be able to see who’s coming in and who’s going out with peace of mind that you can deter injury. We know you have safety in mind either way, but there’s nothing wrong with the extra help of a living room with bifold doors.

You don’t have to worry about break-ins because our double-glazed glass is extra strong, adhering to the PAS 24:2016 standard. Our bifold doors include a FUHR locking mechanism that uses lock pins formed from impenetrable hardened steel, making it practically impossible to break or unlock without the proper key.

Illusion of Space

You can sometimes feel confined to your own home when there’s a lack of space, especially if most of your daily tasks and even work are completed there. When you finally find time to relax, there’s no change to the environment other than a slightly clearer space and an open window.

Living rooms with bifold doors can create an illusion of space that otherwise isn’t there. Whether you’re living on the top floor of an apartment building or in a smaller, busy home, bifold doors can be a saving grace for anyone who’s claustrophobic or wants to make the most of the weather.

Aesthetic Appeal

Did someone say ‘aesthetically pleasing’? It doesn’t matter how tall or short your walls are, bifold doors can be custom-made to fit any home. They can outline your property, take up your entire wall, or be an accent on top of your decking. They virtually come in any colour, so you can rest assured they’ll match your exterior and interior.

Feeling cold? Is the rain getting in? Bifold doors have a unique feature, but it’s no secret because you can find it in its name. You don’t need to have the doors open all the way or even halfway. If you want it to function like any other door, just open one panel. Likewise, your panels can stretch across the wall or meet halfway in two separate installations.

Which Living Room Bifold Doors Should I Choose?

We recommend investing in korniche bifold doors. Constructed from thermally broken aluminium, foam filled gaskets, and insulation to help reduce the risk of condensation. Korniche bifolding doors are constructed from a single welded gasket, which eliminates potential leakages.

One main advantage is its use of industry-leading technology to help regulate the temperature. Using Q-Ion, a new sealing technology with no reliance on silicone, korniche bifolding doors are better at keeping the heat in during winter and the cool in during summer.

Their stylish finish puts them above similar priced competition on the market, and the bifolding doors can be folded compactly, giving you more space and a more open feel to any area. With korniche bifold doors, you can rest assured knowing your new doors aren’t costing you in energy or maintenance.
