Many of us live in new build homes. A recently constructed property offers the benefits of low maintenance with a long warranty on the build. Furthermore, new homes come with the latest insulation materials lowering our heating bills.
How bifolding doors can add space and light to a new home.
As we try to cram more properties into plots of land, our houses have become smaller. As a result, we build more three-storey properties than before. The other constraint of newer properties is they have fewer reception rooms than older homes.
Open Living helped a homeowner living in a recently built three-storey end terraced house. The brief involved creating a new kitchen extension at the back of the house. To this, a solution came from our industry-leading Origin bifolding doors.
The premium quality aluminium door from Origin is designed as a three-panel layout. Three panel doors remain one of the most popular configurations for a bifold. An access leaf provides even more convenience.
Like many terraced properties, often these only have one door leading out into the back garden. An access leaf provides a quick and convenient way to get in and out of the home. As a result, you get in and out without having to fold the doors back every time. Access leaves work as a conventional hinged door, fitted with the 8 point locking system and a high-quality door handle.
Classic white aluminium bifolding doors.
The door colour also matches the existing windows. Origin doors have White RAL 9910 gloss white polyester powder coated finish.
The RAL 9910 colour is very popular with white aluminium windows. Not only is it clean and bright in appearance, but it also has exactly the right amount of gloss level. Consequently, white looks great if placed next to quality white PVCu windows.
The same colour shade is applied to the cill the doors sit upon, the bifolding door magnets as well as the treacle vent in the head of the doors.
Aluminium bifolding doors to meet the latest Building Regulations.
As this was a new extension, the new habitable room needs to have the required level of background ventilation. The bifolding doors have a discreet aluminium trickle ventilator. The trickle vent is positioned at the head of the doors within a specially designed frame extension, colour coated to match the doors.
The trickle vent, aside from being a mandatory requirement, enables clean airflow into the room, helping to reduce moisture levels in the home.
Finally, Open Living helped create a new improved kitchen and living space in this modern family home that now boasts an excellent way to enjoy the garden all year round, floods the downstairs of the home with natural daylight and will add great value to the property.
