One of the biggest considerations when renovating Cambridgeshire homes is space – homeowners are very keen to create more of it. One way to do this is to install bifold doors – instead of opening into the room they fold onto each other. Although these doors are commonly made of glass you can have yours made out of wood to match the rest of your décor. There are some important factors to take into account when you are choosing wooden bifold doors.
Type of wood
These doors are made out of many different types of wood so you should take your time and choose wood that is suitable – it should match the rest of the wood in your home and be of the right grain. Sine you don’t want to replace your door after just a few years you should choose wood that is long lasting.
Number of panels
This will depend on how big the space where the door will go. Measure the space and then decide on how many times you would like your door to fold in order to establish how many panels will be needed.
Do you want some glass?
Wooden bifold doors can also come with glass. If you choose this option make sure that you choose the proper glaze and thickness of glass. You should also think about privacy in the home – you can have the glass tinted.
How will the doors open and close?
This is called the configuration and since there are several options available you should choose one that is best for your home.
