Stunning ways to use bi-fold doors in your kitchen

Bi-fold doors can really make a space. Adding style, functionality and a wow factor to your interior, bi-fold doors can help you to get even more from your property. As they are such an impressive feature, it makes sense to use bi-fold doors in the most important room in the home: the kitchen.

Installing bi-fold doors in your kitchen will completely transform the look and feel of the space. Adding flexibility and character to your home, and allowing you to use the space the way you want to, bi-fold doors could be the answer to your interior design needs.

Connecting your kitchen with your garden

As @MyHomebuilding says, Bi-fold doors are “A great idea for injecting a little natural light into internal spaces, framing views and increasing a connection to the great outdoors.

So, if you’re looking for a way to create a closer link between your kitchen and your garden, they’re ideal. Place bi-fold doors across an entire wall of your kitchen to bring the outside in and dramatically increase your living space. On a warm and sunny day you’ll be able to open the doors up wide to create a seamless connection between your home and garden.

On the exterior side of the doors, build a wooden deck or patio to make the space even more functional. You can use this area for al fresco dining, entertaining and spending quality time with your family.

In addition, if you have young children, another benefit of using bi-fold doors in the kitchen is that you’ll be able to keep an eye on them a lot more easily. When your doors are wide open, your kids will be able to run in and out all day long.

Defining the areas of your home

As well as using bi-fold doors to connect your kitchen with your garden, you can use them internally to define the various areas of the home. This can work especially well if you have an open-plan property, but want to create clearly designated spaces for dining, cooking, and socialising.

Install bi-fold doors between your kitchen/diner and living room so both spaces can be used at the same time. Using bi-fold doors in this way means some people can be watching movies in the living space while others are socialising with friends around the table.

If you want to join the two areas together, simply open up the doors to create one long space. Alternatively, if you want to be able to close off the cooking smells and mess of the kitchen after a dinner party or evening in, place the bi-fold doors between your kitchen, and the rest of the space.
