Bifolding Doors Have The X-Factor!Published on 17th June 2017
When it comes to entertaining guests, bi-folding doors have the X Factor – and that’s official.
It has been reported that X Factor host Dermot O’Leary, and his TV producer-director fiancée Dee Koppang, recently had bi-folding doors fitted in the kitchen of their gorgeous, end-of-terrace, Victorian house in North London.
“Fitting bi-folding doors in the kitchen was the best decision we ever made,” Dee told Living etc. “In the summer, the space is almost like our downstairs living room. At night, with the fairy lights on and candles lit, it’s the most twinkly, pretty sight you can imagine.”
The bi-folding doors play a pivotal role in Dermot and Dee’s life, which involves a busy social calendar.
“We’ve had some brilliant summer parties here,” says Dee. “Everyone ends up in the garden.” And, it is easy to see why, with a four-panel, bi-folding doors system opening up their beautiful, 70s-inspired kitchen to a handsome courtyard.
Dermot and Dee’s bi-folding doors are just one example of how a home can be transformed with the installation of aluminium bi-folding doors, particularly if homeowners are looking to create a special place for entertaining. Bi-folding doors – also known as folding sliding doors – are perfect for joining up ultra modern kitchen diners with smart, outdoor patios and creating one large social hub. The sweeping combination of internal and external floor space created by bi-folding doors can be breathtaking, and provide a real talking point at parties.
However, bi-folding doors are also ideal for low-key entertaining, such as cosy coffee mornings. When the weather allows, bi-folding doors can be swept back to allow for lazy latte chats in the garden; and, even when the weather is not so good, bi-folding doors provide a great view of the garden, framing the outdoors for relaxing views from within.
Bi-folding doors have become a hit with homeowners across the country, and are becoming the number one choice when it comes to external garden doors. Apropos’ bi-folding doors are true A-listers – being rated ‘A’ for energy efficiency, the highest rating possible.Return to Blog
