It’s the question of the century. The debate that philosophers have waged across time. What door option is the best? When you’re designing the look of your house around your needs, this question will come up. So what design do you choose? Well, we recommend bifold doors.
What is a bifold door, you ask?
We’re here to tell you all about what a bifold door is and the many advantages to using these doors over other kinds of doors!
Ready to get started? Then let’s not waste any more time.
What Are Bifold Doors?
Bifold doors are multi-pane doors where each pane folds up into itself to make the opening accessible for people to pass through. Think of it as a sliding door, but with multiple parts.
They work in a house either internally (to cover cabinets, pantries, etc.) or as alternatives to screen doors (from the house to the outdoors).
The Advantages of Bifold Doors
One of the biggest benefits of having a bifold door is the low level of repair and maintenance they tend to require. Since they are usually made of aluminum (or hardened plywood, it’s your choice) the doors are both sturdy and only require a simple cleaning every so often to stay looking spiffy.
Another benefit is their inexpensiveness. They aren’t hard to track down and lean toward the cheaper side due to the relative ease with which manufacturers produce them. With that low price tag also comes easy storage to boot!
Think about it. Since the doors fold, they are really easy to store away when not in use, and they’ll stay in great condition for a long time. This size also makes the door a perfect fit if you need to place a door in a cramped opening that a normal door is too large to fit in.

Contrary to popular thought, these doors have a great deal of security if you’re trying to keep people out. If you lock the track that the panes of the door slide along, the door shuts and can’t open until someone releases the lock.
Bifold doors have the option of see-through panes to boot, so if you want to stare at your yard while you eat your morning breakfast, it’s not a fantasy any longer! Finally, bifold doors have customisation options so your houses’ aesthetic doesn’t get compromised by a specific design of the bifold door.
