Why Bifold Doors Are Always A Brilliant Choice

The majority of the time when considering investing in new doors for the rear of a property, people will automatically turn to either a French door or a classic patio door. Whilst there is no denying that both of these are a brilliant and elegant choice, nowadays, we would also recommend that people consider bifold doors too. 

Bifold doors look slightly different to other options on the market and they also open slightly differently too. You may have previously heard them referred to as concertina doors because they open back in sections. If you would like to find out more about this specific type of door, keep reading today. Our team here at Brackenwood have put together a list of reasons why bifold doors are always a brilliant choice. 

Modern and eye-catching

One of the main reasons why bifold doors are such a great choice when replacing your rear external doors is because they are so aesthetically pleasing. They have such a sleek, contemporary feel to them and they are somehow able to eye-catching whilst seamlessly blending into any property. No matter what the style or design of your property may be, you can trust that bifold doors will look amazing. 

Versatile in design 

These days, bifold doors are available in numerous materials, such as aluminium and uPVC, and you can also get them in a vast range of colours too. Here at Brackenwood, we are able to provide bifold doors in any colour you’d like and you can also have different colour combinations too. You can match the inside of your doors with your current furnishings whilst still ensuring that the outside matches the mood you’re looking to create in your garden. 


When compared to other classic options for rear doors, bifold doors actually take up much less space. Of course, when closed they will be no different to a standard wall and when you open them, you will be surprised how unintrusive they actually are. The bifold doors we manufacture at Brackenwood are unique in the fact that they have a pop-out handle allowing them to fold back completely flat, making them even more space-saving. 

Increase natural light 

A huge selling point for bifold doors is their ability to fill a room with natural light. Not only are their glass panels much bigger than other door options but, they are also made with ultra-slim frames to maximise your unobstructed views whilst allowing light to flood into your home. When bifold doors are open it can feel as though you are completely taking down a wall in your room too, allowing you to connect your home with your garden. 

Safe and secure 

Even though the majority of a bifold door is glass, we can assure you that they are still both safe and secure. Of course, they will have various locking features as expected from an external door and you can rest assured knowing that the glass used will be almost impossible to break through. At Brackenwood all of our bifold doors have enhanced security too and all designs will be certified secure before being installed, so you’ll never need to worry in this regard. 

Installing bifold doors 

It is clear to see why bifold doors are always worth considering when you’re updating the rear doors to your property and they can be such an amazing alternative to French or patio doors. There is no denying that they are a brilliant choice for all properties and you can guarantee that they will look incredible.
