Is a Bifold Door the Right Choice for Your Office?

04 Jan 2021

When constructing or renovating your work office, one of the most important elements that you have to consider is your door. The door of your office is, many times, the first thing that new visitors see when they enter your office and is your first line of defence against criminal elements. Often, it is the focal point of many offices and can completely transform its interior, even if it is the only thing that is being changed. One of the best options for an office, including your home office is a bifold door. The relatively unknown option is excellent for bringing a contemporary and effective feature to your office.

What does a home office need?

Everyone is familiar with what an actual commercial office looks like and therefore, what it needs, but not everyone knows what a home office requires to be a comfortable space. Home offices struggle with being too small, too connected to home and too dark. This is expected as you are trying to create an environment that is conducive to productive work in the middle of your comfortable space. This is what you should expect from your home office:

  • Lots of natural light
  • Clear separation between your office and home
  • Quiet environment
  • Spacious room

Now that you understand what to expect from both your work and home office, let’s explore why bifold doors are the right option.

4 reasons why bifold doors are the right choice for your home and work office

Neat option – takes up minimal space

Unless you have the luxury of working in a large office on your own, or you have ample space at home for an office, it’s unlikely that you have sufficient room. Many people who work from home struggle with space and a door can potentially take up even more room and make your entire experience working from home very cumbersome.

Bifold doors are an extremely neat option for home and work offices as they take up very little space and cause little disturbance to your home’s (or work building) physical flow. Sliding and stacker doors can be awkward and in tight spaces and do not allow you to maximise your space. However, a bifold door neatly collapses back on itself and gives you the option of either separating or expanding your home office.

Sleek and customisable

Like all aluminium products from A-Tech Australia, aluminium bifold doors are a very sleek and contemporary option for your work and home office. Modern furnishings usually bode well with commercial spaces and add a refined and polished touch to your workspace. For your home office, the aesthetic of an aluminium door will add a touch of modern elegance. If you think that it may not blend well with your home’s current interior design, then change the colour of its powder-coating. It is completely customisable, making it easier for you to blend a bifold door with your interior.

Large glass pane

Whether at home or work, a problem that many offices face is a lack of natural light. Natural light makes offices appear larger, brighter and generally, uplifts the mood of anyone working there. A bifold door has clear glass planes that when closed, can still offer a decent amount of natural light. If you open your bifold door, you can benefit from an abundance of uninterrupted natural light and ventilation.


Any door that is not low-maintenance requires significant cleaning and polishing and can easily look drab which ultimately affects the appearance of your work and your home. Aluminium bifold doors are extremely low-maintenance in that they only require a thorough cleaning every 3 to 4 months. Additionally, aluminium is an extremely durable and resistant material, meaning that its appearance will not experience wear and tear and special treatment to prevent deterioration is not needed. This is a major benefit of any aluminium door because the last thing you want to worry about when working is cleaning your door.
