Bi-Folding and Sliding Doors
Bi-Folding and Sliding Doors are both aesthetically pleasing and also serve specific purposes.
Sometimes an entrance has to be placed in a somewhat awkward position in a home, where a hinged door being opened could cause obstruction, or just use up precious space. However, many of our clients like to be creative and specify sliding doors simply for the looks.
The picture below demonstrates this, as a sliding door matches perfectly the modern decor. Please excuse the exposed timber, the plasterer had yet to come when the photos were taken!
Sometimes an extra large opening is required, where it'd be impossible to make a door that wide! Well, even if someone did make a door that wide, it'd be hugely impractical trying to open and close it. This is where bi-folding doors come in handy. Although technically pictured below is a "tri-folding" door, the term "bi" is almost always colloquially used.
SolidWoodenDoors supplied and fitted these folding doors for a basement games/ cinema room. The doors would ensure the room doesn't allow any light to pass through for movie experiences, but having them completely opened would create the illusion of there being much more space for casual events or parties.
If you'd like to discuss possibly installing sliding or folding doors into your home, please get in touch and we'll be more than happy to assist you.
