Why Bi-Folding Doors Will Benefit Your Upcoming Homecation


We have had a little taste of summer-like weather, and it may have got you planning ahead for when most people’s favourite season arrives. 

Tiled Roof Orangery with Bi-Folding Doors

With holidays abroad limited, some families will either head to somewhere in the UK for their annual break, or do something even easier and cheaper than that and stick to having a homecation. 

For anyone having a homecation, we cannot recommend the installation of bi-folding doors at your home enough, and we say that for each of the following three reasons:

Allows you to combine the indoors and outdoors

Having a garden is a real blessing in the summer, especially during a homecation and you can connect your garden to your home with the opening generated by a bi-folding door. 

If you have room for it and want the biggest possible opening, you want one of our 7-pane bi-folding doors – it will totally open out the house. 

A 2-pane design, our most compact bi-fold, will also do a great job of helping you mix indoor and outdoor environments in a single setting. 

Fan you down

Who knows what the weather has in store for us this summer? Let’s be confident and predict a heatwave or two. 

When that heatwave comes, to avoid the possibility of the inside of your house getting too hot, use a bi-folding door to entice in some cool air and keep the space well-ventilated. 

Make outdoor dining easy

There’s nothing like eating al fresco in nice weather, which you would do most nights when on holiday. 

It could be your cue to get the barbecue fired up and cook some sausages and burgers for all of the family. You can show off your culinary skills. 

But how is this relevant to bi-folding doors? You will need access to your kitchen, and the opening of a bi-folding door will give that so you can transport anything needed to eat outside with ease. 

Get all of the information you need about our bi-folding doors here. They will serve your home well, not just in summer, but beyond that.
