Dark nights, cosy indoor spaces!
Dark nights, cosy fires, curling up in front of the telly with something warming – all things associated with Autumn/Winter. It all sounds very nice, but what about your bifolds!? This post will show you how to make the most of your space in the winter months and dress your bifold doors appropriately!
Whether it be integral blinds, some thick curtains or individual blinds, there are many options to shut the world out on a winter evening.

We all like to batton down the hatches in the evening, lock the door, shut the curtains and snuggle up for the night. We also like, on a sunny day to open our bifold doors wide allowing the summer air into our homes and doubling our space. You might think that achieving both is impossible – but it's not!
There are many options when it comes to covering your bifold doors in the winter, fear not, no doors are too wide to feel cosy! A frequent favourite of our customers are integral blinds. No fuss, no messy cords and no dust gathering on your blinds. A crank of a lever or flick of a switch and your blinds are closed and your window becomes a wall again. INSERT LINK TO IB.
Curtains vs. Blinds?
Another way to tuck your home in at night is curtains. Chose a thick pair of floor to ceiling curtains to cover the space – voila, job done! But if you don't want the expense of curtains or simply don't like the look of them (hiding away your beautiful bifolds!) then roman blinds might be the way to go. We can make your cords as long or short as required (to keep away from curious little hands, and paws!) and they are usually wipe clean, neat and keep the doors accessible.
If it's looking out into the dark unknown that you don't like, how about getting some subtle outdoor lighting so that you can see and enjoy your garden at night? Some uplighters buried among the plants could look lovely and there are many solar types so you won't waste a fortune on electricity.
As you can see, there are a lot of options and we appreciate that these are not easy decisions to make – that's why you are welcome to pop in and see us at any time for a friendly chat about any of the above options!
