Most homes would often have the classic single swing door. However, did you know that there are other types of doors that could open up the space and even add aesthetic value to a home or commercial space? Today, interior designers and architects are now making extensive use on the likes of bifold doors, not just as an entryway to a room, but also because of the design and the way this can easily change the look of a space. Here are some types of doors that you might be interested to explore.
Concertina doors can be stacked in several panels. You may have heard of these as accordion doors or folding doors. These have a special mechanism where the panels slide up so that you can have a wider access to the entryway compared to that of a regular door. Bi fold doors that are made of glass are often used to merge the indoors and the outdoors, often seen in patio or garden space. This type of door also allows you to maximize natural light in an indoor space that could save you a bit on electricity. They also offer better security compared to sliding doors because locks are often spread over the panels while other doors only have a single locking system in place.
Similar to bifold doors, stacker doors are often used in areas that overlook the patio or outdoor space that offer a nice view like that of a garden. However, they can also be used in small spaces like that of a bathroom. These are the choice doors if you want to have a nice view of the outdoors and you happen to have very little room inside your home or building. Stacker doors are similar to sliding doors but unlike the latter, these have more panels like that of the accordion doors. Benefits include unobstructed view outside, the option to have security or fly screens, and affordability.
If you want to make your home look classy, French doors would make a fine addition. These could also let a lot of light in like the stacker door or accordion door. They will also let air circulate better that could be very useful during the hotter months where you could reduce costs spent on air conditioning. Since these can come in different designs, they work well with modern or traditional homes.
Need to update your home or commercial building? You don’t necessarily need an overhaul – all you may need to do is replace it to bifold doors, for instance. Or, try the ones mentioned above.
