The weather has been decidedly beautiful lately and with that in mind, questions are being raised as to how to maximise the light in your home.
This blog post will aim to let you know the many benefits of both bifold doors and sliding doors and allow you to make an informed decision of which would work best for your family and home.

One of the main criteria we often hear from our customers is that they want to open up their home and create as much space as possible (don't we all?!). Which tends to take them towards bifold doors, as nothing can really compare with the effect bifolding doors have on a space. They allow you to effectively remove a wall from your home, enabling light, fresh air and an incredible view to be a part of your living space.
About that view...
However, some people do want to focus a lot more on their view and maybe ther garden is in a particularly windy spot and they want to be able to open their home up without being completely exposed to the elements. In this instance, sliding doors would be ideal. They allow for a seamless (even more glass than bifold doors) view to the outdoors, with the added bonus that there will always be a glass partition between you and the great outdoors, even with the doors open.
Our Smarts Visoglide sliding door is perfect for a range of spaces, from very (very!) large, to smaller more modest openings.
We hope these tips give you a good insight to the pros of both door type, but if you're after more detailed information or would just like to chat to someone about the above points, please give us a call or pop in and we can discuss how to move forward.
