Effectively blurring the lines between outdoor and interior living spaces and creating wonderful open plan living, modern bifold doors are becoming ever more popular. And awnings are a fantastic way to enhance bi-fold doors, providing welcome shade on hot sunny days and helping to connect outdoor and indoor spaces for a more cohesive living space all year round.

Here are just a few reasons why bifold awnings are a fantastic addition to any home…

Reduce heat and glare

With vast areas of glass, bi fold doors can generate a lot of heat and glare, particularly through south facing windows. Awnings offer a great shading solution to this problem, without the need for blinds which may block out the view. If the room gets too hot, simply open up your awning to provide some welcome shade and continue to enjoy your bi fold doors as you intended, throughout the day.

Extend your living area

Whether your bi fold doors open up from your kitchen or lounge, a retractable awning can help to blur the lines between your interior and outdoor space. Create a lovely alfresco dining area like the one shown in the photo above or extend your living room for some extra space to relax in during the summer months.

Enjoy the view

Enjoy shade over your bi fold doors without obstructing the view. Blinds and curtains may block out the glare but this means losing your outlook. Furthermore, the awning pitch needn’t be too low so that you can make the most of the vista in cool and comfort.

Control from your tablet or mobile phone

At the touch of a button on a remote control, or via an app on your smartphone or tablet, you can open or retract your electric awning quickly and easily. If the sun gets too hot, create a bit of shade instantly, or if some light rain is interrupting your dinner party, simply open up the awning to keep you and your guests sheltered. Furthermore, automatic wind sensors make sure that your awning retracts if the wind gets too strong to prevent any damage.
