Towns and cities feature many terraced properties many of which have undergone substantial renovation in recent years.

terraced houses need clever design to make maximum use of light and space in a smaller house.
Terraced houses need clever design to make maximum use of light and space in a smaller house.

The terraced home was frequently small or narrow with long rooms or even what we know as a two up two down arrangement. Over the years, terraced properties have undergone a huge transformation with extensions, loft conversions and extending the home by utilising the outside space.

In the London area in particular where property prices are soaring, its is not uncommon to find a terraced house upwards of half a million pounds in some areas. These too have been extensively renovated and are highly desirable in areas such as Battersea, Clapham or Greenwich.

Contemporary Bifolding Doors in Terraced Properties.

Frameless Glass Curtains manufacture and install bifolding and hinged doors featuring minimal aluminium framing.

Their bifolding doors are constructed with a perimeter outer frame in aluminium and the door leaves have aluminium sections only to the top and bottom.

These doors were recently installed in a south west London property and dramatically transformed a typical terraced home.

The downstairs of the property was extended and fitted with a new kitchen and living area. Typical of these open plan extensions, many now now feature bifolding doors. Here, a four pane set of doors was installed as well as glazed skylights to the roof.

This property also benefitted from frameless bifolding doors to the upstairs of the home. Many terraced homes feature small sliding sash windows. To the rear, the renovation project involved removing the rear windows and creating a new opening to accept another set of doors.

This time the doors open inwards and to the outside was fitted a contemporary metal and glass Juliet balcony.

How frameless bifolding doors can bring light and a feeling of space.

This type of bifolding door installation is an excellent way of using the latest in contemporary glazed doors to add substantial value to a property.

Not only is the back of the property now bright, useable and functional but the frameless bi folding doors have helped to maximise the light and space available.
