While it’s important for many homeowners that their property looks good, the functionality of each space is essential to your enjoyment. One of the most popular home improvement ideas is creating great areas in which you can entertain guests and loved ones, from large kitchen diners to beautiful gardens. When choosing new windows and doors for this reason, here are some ideas to consider.
Linking Indoors & Out
Some of the best entertaining spaces in the home include those which link your property to the outdoors. For example, perhaps you have a large conservatory that leads onto decking, or you love hosting Summer BBQs but want to create more cohesion between indoors and out. One of the best ideas is installing bifolding doors. These consist of several panels which can be folded to the side of the doorway. The benefit of this is that it leaves the opening completely unobstructed – perfect for achieving a more open plan feel and enhanced flow between inside and out. That’s why so many homeowners choose bifolds when building an extension.
For those who already have an ideal room for entertaining friends and family such as a large dining room, conservatory or kitchen extension, enhance the space by making the most out of the views on offer outside. For new windows and doors, aluminium frames are a great option as they are so slimline and hold larger panes of glass, creating expansive views of your outdoor areas. A popular choice is to upgrade to aluminium sliding doors which boast some of the slimmest frames and narrowest sightlines on the market. The virtually unobstructed views will create talking points with guests and generally enhance your indoor spaces. Another option to consider is taking advantage of the views that lie above, installing a roof lantern to truly put the wow factor into social gatherings. Imagine dinner and drinks under the stars or relaxing with friends with the blue skies on show above.
Larger, Welcoming Spaces
Installing bifolds or sliding doors can also affect how your interiors feel to others by letting in more natural sunlight. Replacing older products with modern window and door systems, whether it’s through bifolds or sliding doors, helps light pour in. This creates a more spacious appearance, opening up rooms to your garden area while producing a warm and welcoming feel throughout. Large glazing can help show off your home in the best way and make areas a pleasure to spend time in when hosting others, whether it’s a large family dinner or a cup of tea with a friend.
