No matter your choice, you’re going to end up with a wonderful installation that will change how you interact with your garden till the end of time. Furthermore, the value the change will add to your home is undeniable. The overall benefits to your wonderful house are uncountable, and you’ve made the right decision to invest in this wonderful addition.
Here at Chigwell Window Centre, we provide aluminium bifold doors in three colours: white, anthracite grey and black. All come with their own stylistic benefits; therefore, your choice will depend on your aesthetic preferences. Today we wanted to focus on a brief breakdown of what each colour may bring to your home in order to give you a better idea of which colour is going to be best for you. So let’s get started!
Some may consider this colour to be an all-time classic, but in home design, it’s only in the last 30 or so years that white has really come to dominate the colour scheme in British homes. White originally connoted a coastal tone to the home, much more popular in hotter towns in southern Europe, such as those in Greece, southern Spain or southern Italy. It’s no surprise, considering how well white pairs with sea blues and blends nicely with just about any other colour you can think of.
When uPVC started blowing up the market as the go-to material for home improvements back in the late 1980s and early 90s, the default colour was white. Home improvement companies hadn’t quite figured out how to get paint to stick to the completely moisture-resistant uPVC without it fading after a while. As a result, white became the obvious choice for many of our windows and doors for the next 20 years. Since the average lifespan of a uPVC installation is around 15-25 years, those uPVC installations made during that time all began needing replacing during the mid-2010s, hence kickstarting a bit of a mini home improvement revolution as many homes suddenly needed new installations around the same time.
During that time, white has become a favourite for many homeowners. Many people have designed their home decor around their white installations, and there is absolutely no reason to change it now. White still blends wonderfully with just about everything, giving you a versatile installation that you can pair with your already existing interior and exterior furniture.
For homeowners looking to be at the forefront of current home design trends, grey is the way to go. Just as versatile as white, grey provides a level of depth to the colour scheme of your home. Whilst white gives the home a clean finish that blends with any other colours you choose to implement into your home design. Anthracite grey gives a room a cosy softness that heightens brighter colours and deepens darker tones.
In your bifold doors, choosing anthracite grey allows you to truly take advantage of the modern look of this particular installation. Steel look styles are very in right now, so homes that take advantage of this are sure to impress friends and family alike!
Black continues to be the new black as we reach the quarter point of the 21st century. The classic colour that never goes out of fashion, black is bold, sophisticated, modern, and classic at the same time. In interior design and artistic pursuits, black is used to make other colours pop. In film editing, a “true-black” must be in every shot to stop the film from appearing greyed out. Keep an eye out for it next time you’re at the cinema!
In the meantime, for your bifold doors, black is a wonderful choice to accentuate the colours that you’re seeing through this excellent installation. The slim black sightlines will allow you to see clearly into your garden and allow the lovely colours out there to really pop! Furthermore, black also fits into the steel look that is currently sweeping the home design industry, allowing you to stay at the front of design trends.
