Vivid green lift and slide doors transform 17th century cottage
To complete the extension project of a converted 1800s artisan cottage in Ormskirk, Bayfield Bespoke has supplied and installed Bayfield Platinum Lift & Slide doors together with an aluminium glazed roof to the sunroom and Bayfield Bespoke Gold bi-folding doors to the artist studio.
Selected in RAL 6018, a vivid yellow/green, the Lift & Slide doors were fitted to the external facade of the sunroom, overlooking the garden, and used as an interior partition between the sunroom and artist studio. Commenting on the colour, the homeowner remarked.
“We’re so used to working with colour and you get so little opportunity to use it in the home that once we realised that all the doors and roof could be finished in any colour, it was an easy decision to make. It’s one of our favourite colours and it suits the rooms perfectly, looking out over the garden.”
Having contemplated having bi-folding doors installed in all openings, the homeowners knew that the Lift & Slide doors were the ideal solution for the sunroom once they had seen them in the Bayfield Bespoke showroom.
“The doors are outstanding – a designer door, you could say. Strong and robust, the quality of the product is amazing.”
A development on the traditional sliding door system, Lift & Slide doors open and close smoothly and effortlessly. With the ability to lower and lock the door into any position by means of the handle, it enables easy access between rooms without the need to fully open the door.
The Bayfield Bespoke Gold bi-folding doors installed in the artist studio increase the amount of natural light projected into the room, whether the panels are opened or closed.
Both styles of door are covered by a 10 year manufacturer warranty and are fitted with high security locking systems for peace of mind. Thermally broken to prevent the build up of condensation, the doors are fitted with double glazed units with Low-E glass to ensure minimal heat loss and save money for the homeowners.
To complete the sunroom, an aluminium glazed roof was fitted incorporating Pilkington Activ™ toughened glass that has self-cleaning properties for hard to reach surfaces. The dual-action coating uses daylight and rainwater to break down and wash away organic dirt from exterior surfaces without leaving drying spots.
The extension was built by Pete Daniels Building Contractors to create a dual-purpose space for work and play.
