Origin bi-folding doors and windows were chosen for a beautiful barn undergoing extensive renovation work.
The large, dark and draughty barn had not been touched since the original conversion in 1982, and needed extensive renovation work before the new owners could move in. With old, single glazed wooden windows and doors throughout, the barn was draughty and noisy, and the 80s-style interior was not in keeping with the desired cosy, contemporary style.
The new owners wanted to create a calm and cosy home that reflected their ‘‘Hygge’ approach to life. Hygge, usually translated to “cosiness” (although there is no literal meaning for the word in English), is the feeling of warmth, comfort, and tranquillity within a home. The new bi-folding doors and windows certainly helped them to successfully achieve hygge as they flooded their home with natural light whilst keeping it warm during the cold months thanks to their exceptional thermal efficiency.
In addition to the thermal properties of the Origin Doors and Windows, the new owners were also impressed by the sleek design and slim sight lines that the products offered. Furthermore, the finger safe gaskets and a 20-year guarantee gave the family complete peace of mind in choosing Origin.
To maximise the amount of natural light in their living space, two bi-fold sets were installed, one off the kitchen and one of the living room. As well as tall hallway window to further add to the home’s character.
Opening their downstairs space to their tranquil outdoor surroundings, has completely transformed the way the family interact with their home, helping to contribute further to the Hygge feel the family were so keen to achieve.
