How to style your glazed extension

Creating a stunning dialogue between an interior and exterior space has never been so easy especially if you’ve set your heart on having a glazed extension.

Not only will you be opening up your home to more space, you will be able to embrace a sophisticated interior if you install aluminium doors.

Glazed extensions are a popular choice for families who need more space but don’t fancy the upheaval of moving. Extensions are a savvy investment and can create the most fantastic living space, whether you’re expanding the kitchen or living area, or installing a home working space or playroom for the children.

Not only will the additional room increase your home’s square meterage, a glazed extension could   save you money in the long run. Estate agents tell us that adding space is always a good investment.

Installing luxury widespan doors can add the perfect finishing touches to a home’s new look. If you’re excited about creating a totally open transition, it’s time to think about being innovative and considering the options available.

The beauty of bifold doors

You can effortlessly open up a glazed extension with the addition of bifold doors. They have multiple panels of glass which fold away to reveal a stylish open space.

Free from any frames or post, bifold doors work using a concertina style opening which can be folded away to remove the wall that separates your home from your garden. This allows you to extend the living space of your home.

Bifold doors can fold internally or externally, to the right-hand side or left-hand side, and you can choose which configuration works best for you.

Dubbed the Rolls Royce of bifold doors, aïr 800 doors, are available in the most impressive sizes and this can add to the stunning look you are trying to achieve.

If you’ve got space, you can choose to have up to 10 panels, each of which can be a maximum of 3 metres tall and 1.2 metres wide, leaving you with an exciting open space that spans across 12 metres. Another bonus is that the frame sightlines on aïr bifold doors are as slim as 108mm, so there is minimal interruption of the outdoor views.

You’ve probably seen pictures of bifold doors in other people’s glazed extensions, but until you’ve seen ours, you’ve not genuinely seen the best. Our contemporary and luxurious bifold doors ooze charm and style and increase the illusion of space so you can invest in whatever furniture you choose for your sophisticated new look.

Another option is sliding doors

Don’t think adding bifold doors is the only way to turn your glazed extension into something captivating – you have other options.

Our aïr 500LS & 600LS aluminium lift & slide doors are the perfect choice to frame the view, especially if you’re keen to open up the back of your house.

These stunning doors add a striking design statement and will flood your home with light and love.

They work by gliding to the side, with the glass panels sliding behind one another. Each glass pane is wider than the panes in bifold doors and that helps to maximise light. They’re also made with minimal frames, so they don’t obscure views to the outside.

If you want, you can choose to have as many as 6 panes using a monorail or triple track system. This impressive option creates a stunning wall of glass and can bring boundless possibilities to your new living area.

aïr 500LS & 600LS aluminium lift & slide doors create captivating views and let in boundless light. Each panel is available up to 2.7 metres high and 2.5 metres wide, which means your glazed wall could be as wide as 15 metres. If you want more glass and less frame, these sleek aluminium frames have been impressively engineering to be just 48mm – that’s half the bifold frame width.

The aïr lift & slide doors look truly stunning in a glazed extension and the aïrglide technology means they glide open effortlessly.

Modern or traditional – the look will still work for you

The choice is yours and you can select either bifold doors or sliding doors. These 2 door styles are definitely the most favoured when it comes to planning out a new relaxed and homely space.

A super sleek modern glazed extension undoubtedly adds personality to your home – especially if you’ve installed stunning bifold doors or sliding doors. Now it’s time to work with the stylish structure and start adding some beautiful furniture.

If you’re keen to keep things open and spacious, don’t overfill the room, but if you’re trying to create a cosier atmosphere, then rugs and lamps can make an area more homely. Let your creativity flow and think about what flooring you’d like then think about what colour to have on your walls.

Creating more space is the biggest reason homeowners take on massive makeover projects during this time of the year. Get it right and you’ll be able to make the most of your new room 365 days of the year.
