Combining your living area with your outdoor space is a great way to entertain guests, introduce great airflow and light, and keep your home feeling open and fresh throughout the day. There are many great ways to achieve this, so we’ll talk through some of the most popular window & door options.
Aluminium Bifold Doors
Arguably the most recognised and popular way of opening a Living Room to an outdoor area is with a Bifold door. These are the large doors that are made up of panels that cascade together to one side of the opening, connecting your living room to your outdoor entertaining area by essentially removing a wall.
Aside from the aesthetic qualities, Bifolds are incredibly strong and durable and glide effortlessly for ease of use for all ages. Furthermore, you’re able to adjust the width of the opening to fit any occasion, from fully open for the family’s Christmas lunch, to just a panel to make life easy for the four legged children of the family.
Aluminium Sliding Doors
If you’re home design won’t allow for the installation of Bifold doors, then it might be best to look at Sliding Door options. Sliding Doors are available in a range of sizes and can generally fit most openings that are larger than a standard doorway. With the same ease of use as a bifold door, it’s suitable for all family members, and still provides an excellent amount of light and airflow, but with a reduced opening as the two panels fit over each other. There’s also the option to add a mesh insert to the door if insects are a problem at your property.
Aluminium Stacker Doors
Stacker Doors are another great option for opening your living room to outdoor areas. Aesthetically similar to Sliding doors, Stacked doors can involve more panels than a Sliding door and work by staggering the panels, allowing you to reduce its form to just one panel, maximising the opening. Like Sliding doors, Stacker doors are available with flyscreens to stop the ingress of insects. Great for those warm summer nights, where you want that cool breeze flowing through, without the summer mosquitos.
Aluminium Louvre Windows
Another successful way of opening your living room to the outdoors is by combining your door options with Louvre Windows. This style of windows offer a very modern design, with exceptional control of airflow. Whether you choose floor to ceiling or smaller panels of Louvre windows, you’re essentially installing a moving section of wall, much like the Bifold doors. With conveniently placed handles, you’re able to move multiple panels of glass simultaneously, while leaving other panels closed should they be in reach of small children. Louvre Windows are also incredibly popular in bathrooms where you can allow an impressive amount of air into keep the room fresh.
