To create the illusion of a bigger space using bifolds, you can follow these steps:
Clear the area: Remove any obstacles or furniture that might obstruct the space where you plan to install the bifolding doors. This will create a more open and unobstructed view.
Choose the right bifolding doors:
Look for bifolding doors that have large glass panels, such as the Shaker 1 Light Clear Glass or a Shaker 4 Light Clear Glass. The large glass panels will maximise natural light and offer expansive views and create a seamless transition between indoor spaces. Shop | Green Tree Doors
Install the bifolding doors: Hire a professional contractor or follow the manufacturer’s instructions to install the bifolding doors correctly. Make sure they are aligned properly and securely fitted to ensure smooth operation.
Optimise natural light: Position the bifolding doors in a way that maximises the amount of natural light entering the space. Consider factors such as the direction of sunlight and the layout of the room. Natural light can create an illusion of spaciousness.
Use mirrors strategically: Place mirrors on the walls opposite the bifolding doors. Mirrors reflect light and create an illusion of depth, making the space appear bigger than it actually is.
Keep the space clutter-free: Avoid cluttering the area near the bifolding doors. Keep the surroundings clean and organised to maintain an open and spacious feel.
Consider the flooring: If possible, use the same type of flooring inside and outside the bifolding doors. This will blur the boundary between the two areas and create a sense of continuity, making the space feel larger.
By following these steps, you can optimise the use of bifolding doors to create a sense of openness and make the space appear bigger.
