What are the benefits of white aluminium bifold doors?
White is a popular colour for interior design and home renovation due to its ability to create an illusion of space. Bifold doors can be used to bring the outside in, and choosing a white door frame for your bifold door will amplify this effect and can help to make your space seem larger. Designer Savannah Phillips states, “The best thing about white is that it can make a space look larger—as a bright and light colour”. White is also known for its modern and fresh feel, so it is an ideal option if you are looking for a sleek option as opposed to a traditional feel.
Additionally, white bifold doors also blend well with different colours and styles of interior design and garden design. For example, your bifolds can work as a perfect match if your garden furniture is white or neutral and can also go well alongside brighter colours and designs, creating an eye-catching contrast. Neutral colours, such as black and white, work well alongside wooden furniture, such as rustic garden chairs and tables.

Should you choose white aluminium bifold doors?
We recommend choosing a white aluminium bifold door if you are looking for a modern, sleek design for your home. Before making a decision, you need to consider your personal design preferences, your existing interior and patio or garden aesthetic, and whether you want your external patio doors to match the other doors in your home.
How do you choose the best white external aluminium bifold door for your home?
When choosing the right option for you, it is important to consider factors such as accessory options and choosing the right configuration for your space. The accessories you choose for your door can have a huge impact on the overall look and practicality of your white external aluminium bifold door. You need to consider options such as handles, locks, blinds, and more. To create a dramatic impact, for example, you may want to opt for a darker colour, such as a black or dark grey handle. Silver or white, on the other hand, can create more consistency. You may also want to choose a white bifold door frame that offers dual colour options if you wish to enjoy the benefits of both colours, such as black and white.
It is vital to consider whether your accessory and hardware materials are strong and durable. According to recent research, a burglary takes place every 106 seconds in the UK. It is, therefore, vital to ensure your patio doors, are secure and feature the best security options possible. Ensure you choose a supplier that offers secure and strong locks to go alongside your door. Read our full guide to choosing bifold door accessories here.
When it comes to configuration options for your white aluminium bifold door – the right option depends on the space you have available and which option would be practical, as well as your preferred style. Before purchasing your door, you will need to consider whether you want the doors to open inwardly or outwardly. Find out more about choosing a bifold door configuration here.
It also important to bear in mind the size and number of panel options you want, which will depend on the options available to you as well as your priorities when choosing a door. For example, if your main priority is to utilise natural light, you will want to choose enough panels to allow you to do this. Choosing a bespoke supplier, such as Vufold, can ensure you achieve your desired look. Find out more about choosing a number of panels for a bifold door here.

White aluminium bifold doors vs white wooden bifold doors – which option is the best?
White wooden bifold doors are often popular due to their environmental benefits and rustic appearance. They are also often significantly less expensive than aluminium bifold doors. Although aluminium is often the more costly option, bifold doors with an aluminium frame are extremely durable and secure, making them an ideal option over non-engineered wooden doors if strength is your key priority. Unlike non-engineered wooden bifold doors, aluminium also does not expand or contract in certain weather conditions, making it the most durable option. Aluminium bifold doors are also a modern, sleek option for any property. Read our complete guide to aluminium bifold doors here.
