Take a tour round an average UK property, and you’ll see how keen people are to open up space and create a house that works for them and their families.

To bring more heart to the home, they’re investing in conservatories, orangeries and extensions and installing impressive glazed walls as part of their bespoke renovations.

These additions boost property value, but that’s not the only reason people take the plunge and embark on home improvement projects. In most cases, people are happy with the location of their homes – they simply want to add to their existing living space without the hassle of selling up and moving on.

Why choose bifold door or sliding doors this summer?

Big expanses of glass, in the form of bifold doors or sliding doors, has risen in prominence over the last decade in the UK. They have become a real customer favourite and can instantly transform a home if you are considering a glazed extension.

You’ll be happy to know that bifolding doors are the top choice this summer according to 2019 trends.

If you’re planning to create a glazed extension, then it’s worth taking some time to think about the kind of look you want to achieve.

Bifold doors definitely add to the aesthetics of any interior and can be hugely beneficial if you’re keen to open it up and knit the inside with the outside.

Whether you’ve got traditional tastes or love to keep up with the latest trends, widespan doors do one important thing – they create an impressive open space.

If you love clean lines and minimalism, bifold doors work especially well in the kitchen and dining area because they are slim and sleek and give you optimum levels of light. If you want to frame the outdoors, choose sliding doors to offer panoramic views of the garden. Choose the right furniture and furnishings and you’ll successfully add the right definition to any room.

An important aspect of any interior design is to use plenty of different textures, and this remains a key trend this year. Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour, design an accent wall that stands out from the rest of the room, and work on breaking up plain designs.

There are no escaping trends and even though they change and evolve, they can remain popular for years – rather than just a season or two.
