Aluminium Bi Fold Doors for London City Balcony Brightness
Maximise natural light – good for gardeners and pot plants to flourish
Sky Lanterns increase natural light into ant dark room, roof windows, bi-folding doors and sliding doors are the simplest, most effective way of encouraging natural light in from outside. Instead of fitting a new window and wasting valuable wall space, a skylight or roof light utilises ceiling space magnificently, encouraging abundant levels of daylight into your room.
Bi-folding and sliding doors are also engineered to maximise levels of natural light into living areas. Often installed as a luxurious alternative to French doors, sliding and folding doors boast large glass panels with maximised views, combining the convenience of a tilting window with the versatility of a patio door.
Tip: If you’re looking at ways of getting more light into a basement or cellar, for instance, a walk-on floor light glass panel could be fitted into the floor above, adding a burst of natural light from walkways above into rooms directly below.

Ideas To Maximise Light In Your Home
1 – Wall mirrors and White Flooring
A very effective method of reflecting what light you do receive in your room is to fit wall mirrors. They’ll reflect every single ray of light whether it’s from a door knob, candlestick, photo frame or a chandelier. It’s designed to do most of the hard work for you.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s lino, laminate, carpet or tiled flooring, white and light coloured flooring easily creates a feeling of light and space for any living area starved of natural daylight.
Even if you’re not in a position to immediately change your entire floor, a large white rug would make a noticeable difference in the meantime.
2 – Glass internal doors
If you have doors fitted which block out possible daylight from hallways or connecting rooms, why not replace them with transparent sliding or folding doors? Our VG15 sliding internal room dividers – as featured during the BBC’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show coverage – are the perfect contemporary solution. You don’t have to worry about a lack of privacy either as a number of frosted or tinted glazing treatments are available.
3 – Adopt neutral paint colours
Are you a dab hand with a paint brush? If you have living rooms with dark wood flooring or rustic wood furniture then you might consider painting your walls a lighter, neutral colour like a rich grey or brown. It gives you versatility in terms of colour schemes, as well as the freedom to experiment with a splash of colour using interiors.
4 – Ambient lighting
Artificial lighting can work if you get it right. The best way of giving yourself the flexibility and freedom to use artificial light is through the use of dimmer switches. With a dimmer switch you have the ability to create ambient lighting when it is needed. When it comes to artificial lighting, it’s always important to consider the size of a room too. Rooms with high ceilings will benefit most from up lights to make spaces feel bigger, while narrower rooms will benefit most from low-level lighting to elongate the living space.
5 – Low furnishings
Big furnishings that dominate any living area have the potential to block out natural sunlight. Keep your furnishings, near windows especially, as low as possible to maximise light into and around the living area.
