3 Questions to Ask Yourself when Buying Bifolding Doors


Aluminium bifolding doors are a great addition to any property, being extremely practical as well as visually stunning. Our slim bifolds with minimal visible framework will add value to your home and extend its interior to the outside.

If you are thinking about buying new bifolds for your home, there are 3 important questions you need to ask yourself…



1. How many panels will I need?


As bifolding doors are made up of multiple panels, usually ranging between 2 and 7, the first thing you should think about is how many are needed based on the width of your wall space. Here at UK Doors Online, three panel bi-folding doors are a popular choice as they provide great flexibility.

Even though you can’t have a full bifold in a small space, you can still enjoy the flexibility of a two-pane bifold door. If, on the other hand, your wall space is very wide, you could opt for 7-pane bifolds with a traffic door for easier access into and out of your home without having to fold all the panels each time.


2. Should I choose inwards or outwards opening?


Bifolding door sets can be configured to open either inwards or outwards, depending on your personal preference as well as what better suits your space. To help you decide, think about the function of the room, the position and size of your furniture, as well as the frequency with which you will be using the door.

An important benefit of an outwards-opening door is that, in case of heavy rain, if you need to open the wet door then it will drip water to the outside and not inside your house.


3. What frame colour best matches my home?


Black, white and anthracite grey are the most popular colours for bifold door frames. However, here at UK Doors Online you can opt for any one of the existing 2,530 RAL colours for a completely bespoke design!

Moreover, the dual colour option allows you to match your bifold door panels with your home’s internal decoration as well as the house’s exterior.
