Creative Ways to Use Bi Fold Doors In The Home

Unless you have been through the process of renovating a house before, you probably haven’t put much thought into the windows and doors that you currently have.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that doors and windows are just a standard, boring part of home interior, because here at Southern Cross Windows we firmly believe that they can be the difference between an uninspiring home and a really cool, on-trend home.

More specifically, we’re talking about the benefits and advantages that bi-fold doors can have on your property. You might be familiar with bi-fold windows on the Gold Coast, but it’s time to get involved with bi-fold doors too. Here are just a few of the stylish and creative ways to use bi-fold doors in the home.

  • Conservatory Update

If you have a conservatory leading out to a garden, you can update it in a beautiful way by switching out your normal glass panels for sets of bi-fold doors that can open up to make the room completely open and at one with the rest of the garden.

Having the ability to be able to open the conservatory at any point you want rather than being restricted to a single doorway can be a real game changer.


  • Lighten Rooms

If there is a room in your home that suffers from being particularly dark, you can swap an entire external wall out with bi-fold doors for a stylish and effective way to bring more light to the space.


  • Minimalist

Bi-fold doors are a great option if you are looking to go more minimalistic in your design approach. Having a set of bi-folds in place rather than a normal wall and door combination leading to an outdoor space can look really simple and sleek, and makes the room feel much bigger.


  • Balcony

They are also a great choice for leading out onto a balcony or terrace on upper floors, having the effect of making the area feel bigger and less cramped, more in sync with the rest of the room.


So, if you think that bi-fold doors might be able to add something to your home, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to explore your options further. We are happy to answer any questions that you might have and look forward to opening your eyes to the beauty and practicality of bi-fold doors.
