Achieving The Wow Factor
We recently completed the installation of several sets of bifold doors, and a gable end window for a customer living in a magnificent house in Worcester.I've chosen this particular project to blog about because it really demonstrates the impact bifold and sliding doors can make on a period property.
The property we fitted with bifold doors in Worcester was a very large, red brick period house with a fantastic garden and a very regal feel.

We fit bifold doors to a wide range of residences, old and new...
However, I think it goes with out saying that the majority of the properties we fit with bifold doors are those looking to encapsulate a more modern look. This consequentially means that many owners of period homes do not consider bifold doors as an option, which personally I think is a mistake.
The owners of this property had decided to make the most of their wonderful garden by extending part of the property and fitting floor to ceiling windows and bifold doors, including a corner opening which allowed them to effectively lose two walls of their room when they pulled the doors back.
The effect this created was outstanding; it meant they were able to remain sheltered whilst being very much outdoors and the gable window above the bifold doors meant that their garden view was virtually unbroken.
The best thing about this installation however, was the subtlety with which this rather grand property has been brought up to date and how the owners have taken full advantage of their property's potential whilst still paying respect to its age and remaining in-keeping with its style.
