Glass Bifold Doors vs French Doors Glass Bifold Doors vs French Doors
If you are building or remodeling a home you may be trying to decide between glass bifold door and french doors. Both styles of doors are popular in today's renovating and building boom, but their uses can vary greatly.
Bifold doors are sets of doors that fold in the middle. It is usually 2 doors that will meet in the center when closed. When opened, they will fold in the center and slide to either side of the track to store. This is important to keep in mind if you have limited space. Bifold doors normally are solid panes of glass, so they are easier to clean than the traditional french doors which have multiple panes of glass.
French doors are usually sets of 2 doors that open in the center then swing back to each side. They are traditionally used in vintage look or historic homes for the decorative affect. They give a coziness and aged look to the home. The can also be installed as an entrance door to a deck or patio since locks can be installed. One of the drawbacks is they need room where they are installed so each door can swing back into or away from a room. On large sets of doors can take up a substantial amount of space. They can be installed with one stationary door and one moving door to eliminate part of this issue.
