Bye-Bye Bi-Fold

Categories: Announcements, Blog, News, SeaGate Homes | Posted: April 23, 2019

After input from customers, employees and industry professionals, SeaGate Homes has decided to say bye-bye to bi-fold closet doors. Our drafting department has been hard at work determining the best way to replace as many bi-fold doors on our plans as possible. Beginning in May, newly built homes will feature sliding or swing doors wherever possible. There are still a few smaller closets that will have to retain the bi-fold doors but for the most part bedroom closets will have sliding doors and walk-in-closets, pantries and linen closets will have swing doors. This update will be a standard feature and will allow for a sleeker, more refined design aesthetic. Along with this change, we have decided to remove plant shelves from our plans to continue the efforts for a sleeker look.

Our team is always reviewing plans, suggestions and industry standards to make sure our plans are efficient, cost effective and elegant.
