#ProjectSpotlight: Orangery with bi-fold doors spotlight


Bi-fold doors have become a major home improvement trend over the last year or so, valued for their modern look and, above all, their potential for views. Once they’re opened wide, they create an access point to the outside world like no other. So if you’ve got the views and want to bring them inside, bi-fold doors are the way to go.

With rolling countryside as their garden, the Honeywood family knew bi-fold doors fit their bill. They added an orangery to the back of their home, equipped with a beautiful lantern roof, timber casement windows and bi-fold doors in white aluminium. It’s a nice-sized space too, but still a cosy lounge. Needless to say, the views aren’t the only lovely thing about this extra living space.

Here’s what the Honeywood family had to say about their new orangery:

A: The reason for wanting an orangery was to create the feeling of being outside. We preferred the look of the orangery because of the lantern roof.

Q: What was the most important thing for you when considering an orangery?

A: The design of the orangery was the most important thing for us when considering the installation.
