Coloured Glass Bi-Fold Doors

Enhancing Spaces with Bi Fold Doors

For many homeowners, one of the biggest concerns that constantly arises in both design and decor is trying to the most you can with the space that you have.

Unless you build extension upon extension, you are only going to have so much room to work with, but here at Southern Cross Windows we think that we might have a trick that will be helpful to many people out there experiencing this problem.

The answer is bi fold doors! Bi fold doors on the Gold Coast are becoming more and more popular with each new set of home trends, and there are plenty of great reasons why that is the case.

If you are still on the fence about whether to fully commit, here are just a few of the ways that your living space can be enhanced with bi fold doors.

  • More Light

Any room that gets to have floor to ceiling glass door panels in it is automatically going to benefit from enhanced light. When a room is lighter, it can feel much larger, so not only are you getting a great view of the outdoors, you are also getting an optical illusion that makes your living space much larger and much lighter.

  • More Style

There is no doubting that bi fold doors are the way to go if you have style and aesthetic in mind. Nothing looks better than a sleek set of floor to ceiling doors that can be adapted in any way you wish. There is a reason why they are the doors of choice for all luxury properties across the world!

  • More Flexibility

Traditional door and windows are stuck in one place with only one type of job, either open or shut. With bi fold doors, though, there are many more options that you can enjoy in how you position your doors to let the light and climate in at any given time. On hot days you can have a completely open and airy area, and on cool evenings you can shut up or leave open as much as you like. You have much more control with bi fold doors.

So, if those reasons have finally made up your mind, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to arrange an appointment. We will be more than happy to discuss all of the different options that are available to you, answering all and any questions as we go through the process.

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.
