Whether you’re designing a new build or revamping your current house, folding, or bifold, glass doors can bring a whole lot to the table.
When you have a small space, glass folding doors are a great investment. They provide a sense of openness whilst staying secure, as well as sliding both inward and outward. They also take up less room than single-hinged doors and require less space during installation.
Additionally, their hingeless and pivot-style hardware allows you to give your space a sophisticated, modern look. There’s no need for heavy frames or fittings, which means the glass can blend seamlessly into any space.
What are folding glass doors?
Before we begin, you may be wondering what these doors are?
A frameless folding door, as the name indicates, does not have a frame around it. This new option may broaden your design options for your home.
Much like they sound, these doors are not one pane, but are segmented to be folded into themselves, in a way that the door does not need room to swing outwards. A seamless glass door adds a modern touch to a room or home.
Although glass doors are most commonly found in bathrooms, you can use them in other areas of the home as well. You can also use frameless glass for creating a safe play area for your kids. It cuts down on noise whilst still giving parents a way to keep an eye on what children are up to.
If that’s not enough to convince you, here’s the top five reasons we love them.
They Provide More Light
By adding natural light to your space, you’ll transform a dark, gloomy ambiance into a bright, positive place.
Glass folding doors are just like sliding doors because they help you maximize natural light that comes into your home from the outside. Whether they are open or closed, folding doors brighten up your life!
A home with interior glass features allows light to flow freely from space to space, which can create a very attractive and practical environment to live and work in.
There is also evidence that sunlight increases productivity, supports the immune system, relieves pain, improves sleep, and reduces depression and SAD. It might even end up saving you money on electricity!
Simple cleaning is all it takes to keep your bifold doors in great condition! Just like any window, every now and then you can clean them by giving them a wipe down with glass cleaner.
A glass feature in the home is also durable, as it does not rust, corrode, or require significant maintenance other than the occasional light dusting.
What’s more, you don’t have to sacrifice privacy to use glass features. Your glass features can be finished in a selection of colours, opaque or frosted. This lets light pass through whilst blocking unwanted visuals or watchful eyes.
Especially for older people or anyone with disabilities, folding doors are more accessible than traditional hinged ones. Hinged doors that open into the interior can be a challenge for wheelchair users to handle or open, especially if they’re completely manual.
The most popular architectural feature in new homes, self-builds and additions is the glass door. Glass doors offer an expanded line of sight and open up the inside of a house to the outside.
This and the additional natural light provided by the folding doors elevates the atmosphere bothyour home. You can choose from a wide variety of styles, materials, hardware, and colours to fit your décor.
You can enjoy uninterrupted views with these types of doors if you choose to install them near the perimeter of your home. The line of sight will always be open for you to enjoy the outdoors or watch your children play.
Folding doors, unlike french doors or traditional hinged doors, occupy very little space when opened since they fold up onto themselves and back on themselves.
Because a folding door does not have to slide behind an immovable panel, you will also enjoy a wider area to pass through when they are opened. You can choose to fold them and stack them outside if you’re concerned about space.
Bring the Outside in
With folding doors, you can enjoy your outdoor space while being comfortable inside. They’re perfect for marrying the indoors with your outdoor space, as well as opening access from one to the other.
You may have worked hard on your garden, patio, or backyard, but you did not plant those seeds just to never enjoy them.
You can reconnect a building to its natural surroundings and feel more in touch with nature through this technique. This would ideally suit holiday homes or retreats with scenic views and encompassing natural outlooks.
Ventilating your home with fresh air can maximize the quality of your indoor air. Your home will benefit from better moisture control, and less mould is going to form. You’ll also be better able to control dust.
Enhance your home with Bespoke Frameless Glass doors
For any space, frameless glass will be a great solution to help you break up large spaces while also enjoying your open layouts.
Frameless glass is not just beautiful; it is also highly secure and meets British Safety Standards. Manufacturers use toughened safety glass up to 12mm thick for its construction, so you won’t have to worry about cracks.
In addition, glass features enable you to optimize your home heating and air conditioning usage. For instance, your family might use one part of your home more than another. If this is the case, you can reduce your heating and cooling costs in that part of your home with a partition of frameless glass.
Frameless glass can help you accomplish the aesthetically pleasing effect of an open floor plan without the accompanying noise and chaos. In fact, bespoke frameless glass can be installed wherever you like.
