Do Bifold Doors Add Value to Your Home?

Bifold doors, which are increasingly becoming a popular choice among homeowners and property developers, are often marketed for their aesthetic appeal and space-saving benefits. 

But beyond the immediate perks, a common question we receive here at Premier Aluminium Solutions is – do slimline bifold doors add value to your home?

What are Bifold Doors?

Simply put, bifold doors are folding doors, typically made up of several panels, which fold against each other when opened. 

Bifold doors can be used as internal or external doors, bridging the gap between the indoors and the outdoors, making them particularly popular for connecting living spaces to gardens or patios.

The Main Advantages of Bifold Doors

The truth is, there are many advantages to incorporating bifold doors into a property. We’ve included an overview of the main benefits people love the most below. 

  • Aesthetic Appeal – Bifold doors are undeniably attractive. They offer sleek, modern designs that can instantly uplift the look of a space. When used as external doors, they can provide panoramic views of the garden or surrounding landscape.
  • Ultra Space-Spaving – Unlike traditional swinging doors, premium bifold doors fold in on themselves, saving space and ensuring that the flow of foot traffic remains unhindered. Slimline bifold doors are even better when it comes to space saving. 
  • Versatility – Available in various materials, designs, and finishes, bifold doors can be tailored to fit any home style, be it contemporary or traditional.
  • Natural Light – Thanks to their typically large glass panels, bifold doors allow a considerable amount of natural light into a room, making spaces feel more open and airy.

Do Bifolding Doors Increase House Value? 

Bifold doors offer numerous benefits, from aesthetic upgrades to functional improvements. So, while the advantages are clear, how do these benefits translate into property value? 

See below for the primary ways adding bi-folding doors adds value to a property. 

  • Desirability Factor – For potential buyers, a home with bifold doors can be more attractive due to the modern design and indoor-outdoor living potential. In other words, adding this feature to a home simply gives your space the ‘wow factor’ – especially in areas where outdoor living is a significant part of the lifestyle, these doors can be a major selling point.
  • Energy Efficiency – Modern, slimline bifold doors come with energy-efficient glazing options. This not only helps in reducing energy bills but is also a selling point for environmentally-conscious buyers.
  • Added Square Footage Perception – Though bifold doors don’t technically add square footage, they can make a space feel much larger by seamlessly connecting interiors to exteriors, especially if you have an attractive outdoor space.
