Bifold doors In recent years the good old patio door or French window has been surpassed in popularity by Bifold doors. Just watch an episode of Grand Designs and see for yourself!

They combine high performance with contemporary design and are as such ideal for any modern home.

Offering up almost panoramic views, they are built with solid construction and great design. But what exactly are their benefits and why should you consider revamping your home?

What Are Bifold Doors?

Nothing particularly complex, Bifold doors are simply doors that slide open whilst its panels fold up and stack neatly, in a concertina style, against one wall.

Seamlessly connecting a room to an outdoor area they can be used for a variety of purposes. Typically installed with between two and seven panels they are connected with hinges and attached rollers that make them easy to use and hassle free.

In addition, you will also find a standard entrance door that allows you to go in and out during the colder months without the need to open up the space up completely. Generally made with aluminium frames, which support large glass panes, they offer unimpeded views that are not otherwise available with traditional patio doors.

More Space

With the introduction of Bifold doors you are effectively removing one wall and replacing it with glass. Allowing for significantly more light to enter your home, the result is the illusion of a much larger space.

Ultimately letting the outside in, the room will feel less enclosed and more refreshed.


The design is completely flexible and can be tailored to suit your individual needs. So, whether you are looking for a simple design to open up just part of the wall, several doors to open the whole back of your home, or a 90 degree angle to lighten a dark corner there is certainly a solution.
