If you want to open up your home and have a lighter, brighter living experience, consider installing bi-fold/multi-fold doors. This type of home improvement will raise the profile of your home, and add to it’s functionality.

Your home will seem a part of the garden area, especially in the warmer summer months when the doors are fully opened. Wonderful for entertaining as the house extends out into the garden with virtually no boundary.
Many choose to maximise light by replacing heavy curtains with a luxurious amounts of lighter voile type material, or attaching smart modern blinds. Even more natural light is allowed into the home by changing solid internal doors to glazed versions. Bi-fold doors provide a great alternative to the disruption and expense of a home extension and installation is faster. They bring a definite ‘wow’ factor to your property with sleek frames, large panes of glass, stunning door furniture and wonderfully smooth mechanisms.
A supportive beam may be required above the door opening, which your fitter will be knowledgeable about. You will typically not need planning permission to install bi-fold doors, although you should always check first. Planning permission is required where changes could significantly affect the look of a building. Building regulations on the other hand are more concerned with any impact the modifications may have on the people using the building. They also concentrate on the energy saving aspects along with the property’s potential carbon footprint.
Actions such as adding or demolishing internal walls or removing chimney stacks will require building regulations approval. Make sure that the installer you use is a reputable company like Essex Trade Windows Ltd, with a long history of excellent service and customer satisfaction.
