(and why you should have them fitted in 2018!)Crystal Clear Bifold Doors

This is the time of the year, when Christmas is approaching and with all the family having chosen to gather and celebrate festivities at your home on the day, it feels like it’s going to a little too tight for space again this year. You could take them all to a local pub or restaurant to celebrate but could be rather expensive (certainly if you’re the one paying). You could even make plans to move to a bigger house in 2018 – rumoured to be even more expensive than eating out on Christmas Day! So why not consider upgrading your home in 2018 with bi-fold doors instead?

We have accumulated 7 ways on how to revamp your home this Winter:

A Conservatory for All Seasons

Cold in the winter months and oven-like in the summer are common preconceptions leading to a decline in interest from many. Or so was the case.

Sophisticated designs and improved materials over the past few years have boosted their popularity. In fact, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors suggest the addition can boost the value of your home by 5%. According to Savills it could even be as much as 10%.

If you’re still not convinced, take a look below and find out how you could benefit from a conservatory all year round.
