Bi Fold Doors are one of the many parts of home design beginning to factor into the minds of the environmentally conscious. With the UK being amongst the least energy efficient countries across Europe, a change in the way we plan our buildings and the way in which we harness natural light is looking to be a cornerstone of climate-aware construction for the foreseeable future. With Bi-Fold Doors we have a sympathetic product for those not wanting to sacrifice aesthetics for the green revolution. Let’s take a look at how that is.
In our previous blogs we’ve discussed what it is about the Bi-Fold Doors concept that is so appealing to homeowners and designers. We’ve talked aesthetics, natural lighting, energy efficiency and modernism. It’s now time we looked at a practical use in how they affect your social life.
The television series Grand Designs, hosted by the unflappable Kevin McCloud, is an open door to a world of poorly handled projects, cutting edge ideas and self-professed designers.

What has this got to do with BiFold Doors?
Most of us will have heard that spending time outside is good for our mental and physical well-being, and many would be aware that the presence of plant life in offices has proven to increase productivity.

Tired of looking at the wall? Turns out you’re not the only one.
