Bi-Fold Doors Ideas

The concept of open living and connection to nature treats every individual: The kids, stressful office job owners, party lovers, disable or elderly family members can access nature easily by simple home improvement. Bi-fold doors ideas are easy to install and pleasure forever. 

Looking back at the design trends, bifold doors used to be interior design ideas like a pantry door, closet door, or separator door between two rooms, etc. Simply called the limited space saver. On the other hand, sliding glass doors used to be the scenery provider but still, they were on the side of an obstructed view. Nowadays, bifold doors are a part of outdoor design and serve drastically for human physiology. It is like living big in small cubbies. No frames, no obstacles, no blockage between your eyes and nature. More light, more fresh air, and more creativity…..  So, the happiness of nature fills your inner core. Flexibility also plays a role in your bi-folds: Reaching out for your privacy is also priceless. A blind, a shade, a curtain over the bi-folds are the solution.

A bifold door in a transitional home design is used as a separator door in between the living and dining room. I was assuming that the dining room can also serve as a conference room as a part of the home office. The tick glass is used as noise insulation without breaking the beautiful accessories of the living room. Smart designs always find the right way for comfort.

Mediterranean style patio and backyard with bifold door connection to the living room. The reason for having a wall and window in the patio is being protected from the strong winds and having the enjoyment of outdoor activities. This semi-open space can be replaced by an outdoor dining and living room. Since the Mediterranean climate allows short winters, the semi-open patio idea is supported by all local architects and interior designers. The folding doors are for ventilation and access to the semi-open patio.

Decision Steps For Bi-Fold Door Elements

The essential steps are the same for every home but some exception happens
Track or threshold: The french bifold doors need a threshold but concertina structure doors need a track. The track has a special installation with flood and rain drainage. Threshold directly impacts energy efficiency and weatherproofing. 
Inward-outward setting: The bifold doors on the track are suitable for the inward and outward setting. Choosing the right setup makes your life easier. Especially for patio doors outward setting, and deck and balcony setting inward setting turn out good. 
Frame material selection: Wood, Aluminum, and Vinyl are the options. Usually, if a Wood frame is picked, a threshold is a must. For lighter materials track is proper. Aluminum frames also have a variety of woodgrain finish, metallic tones, and powder coating with any bespoke color. 
Panel selection: The wide bifold doors panels or slender /narrow bifold panels for your call. 
Glass type and color selection: Your home improvement company will help you with this but my preference goes for insulated glass and 40%tinted gray glass color.
