How to Choose The Right Bi-Fold Door For Your Home Design

When undertaking a medium to large scale home renovation project, it’s fair to say that there are plenty of different design elements to consider, many more than you might initially think before setting out on the task. One such element is deciding which doors to incorporate.


Here at Southern Cross Windows, we happen to think that bi-fold doors are the best way to go, but the decision making doesn’t stop there! Folding doors and bi-fold windows on the Gold Coast are arguably the most popular choice for all modern homes, with the final choice that has to be made being which type is best for you. Here are some tips for choosing the right bi-fold door for your home design.


  • It is important to view the actual door that you intend to buy. You can’t always get the perfect impression and view of a design until you have seen it in person, so we always recommend making the effort to visit and check out the door in 3D before purchasing.


  • You might like the look of a certain design, but make sure to enquire and research the weather guarantees that each design has. This has a lot to do with things like the size of rebated thresholds on external doors. You don’t want the wind whistling in if you live in an area that is susceptible to those conditions.


  • It is always best to get advice from the professionals on a matter like this. If you need clarification on anything related to bi-fold doors, you should always speak up and ask questions. That is the only way to make sure that you get given the proper recommendations.


  • Something to consider is the status of the light in the room that you are hoping to install bi-fold doors in. You want to make sure that as much natural light is allowed to filter into the room as possible, and bi-fold doors are perfect for that.
