4 Ways to use Bifolding Doors

Bifold Doors, sometimes known as Bifolding Doors, are one of the most popular options that we provide. Bifold doors are made up of numerous panels that can be stacked concertina style to one side of an opening. They are incredibly popular for their ability to cover very large openings when closed, while transferring the room/s when they’re opened. Below we’ll take a look at some of the great ways to use BetaView Aluminium Bifolding Doors.

Connecting living rooms & outdoor entertaining areas

Open plan living is an enviable feature of modern homes, and with their ability to be installed in very wide openings, bifold doors allow you to interconnect your living room with an outdoor entertaining area by essentially easily removingntire wall between the two spaces. This allows you to, in many cases, have your kitchen, living, dining, and outdoor areas all linked and open, offering a sensational aesthetic to your home. Even when they’re closed, they offer a terrific amount of light and a near unobstructed view.

Dividing a living & dining area

In many homes, there are living and dining sections that next to each other but divided by a wall, or not divided at all. Sometimes, open plan isn’t always the best option, as you may wish to improve privacy or entertain two different groups at once. Installing bifold doors internally as a divided wall is a great way to make one large room into 2 without making the rooms seem boxed in or small. The glass panels keep noise transference to a minimum, but allow visibility into the adjoining room. This is great for families with small children for example, as you can have a dinner party in one room, with the kids table in the connecting room, where you have total visibility but can also enjoy some peace & quiet. Another example is if you work from home, where you could segment off a section of the living area during business hours, but then open it back up the rest of the time.

Turning a dining room into an outdoor entertaining area

Above we talked about connecting two rooms, but by installing multiple bifolding doors, you can turn your dining room into an outdoor entertaining area, simply by removing the walls around it. Depending on the layout of your home, you could install 2 or 3 bifolding doors to make up the walls of the dining area, then when the weather’s beautiful, you can easily remove all the walls and dine alfresco!

Make the most of a beautiful bedroom view

If you’re lucky to have a bedroom that gazes upon the abundance of natural beauty Australia is blessed with, then why not take full advantage of it. If you have a bedroom with a connecting deck balcony, consider a bifolding door as the dividing wall. When it’s perfect weather, you can remove an entire wall to make the most of the sunshine and cool sea breeze, and even when it’s not the best conditions outside, you’ll have an unobstructed view of the reason you’re still in your PJ’s watching Netflix in bed.
