Bifold Doors, Sliding Doors, French Doors: Open your home for spring

Choosing the right doors can transform not only the aesthetics of your Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire or Yorkshire home but also the way you interact with your living space. Opting for bi-folding doors offers a seamless transition between areas, whereas sliding doors contribute a sleek elegance, and French doors introduce a classic charm. The perfect choice of door enhances your home with natural light, adds spaciousness, and increases functionality.

With a variety of different styles, materials and finishes on offer it is important to consider all of your options. That is why we have put together this guide to outline the different benefits of each type of door: 

Bifold Doors: Panoramic Views, Seamless Flow

Aluminium bi-folding doors are the ideal solution for homeowners who want seamless indoor-outdoor flow and panoramic views. They maximise space by folding away completely to open up entire walls of your home. They also come with a range of flexible options and configurations to fit a variety of different-sized openings. With the addition of traffic door options, you can open one door individually which allows you to access your outdoor space easily without folding back the entire wall.

Bifold doors are also a great investment, adding value with their durability, lightweight build, and sustainability. Aluminium doors have an extremely long-life span of around 40-45 years and require very little energy in maintenance. They also guarantee 100% recyclability at the end of a building’s life.

Sliding Doors: Understated Elegance, Space Saving Design

Homeowners who value modern aesthetics and space-saving solutions appreciate the benefits of sliding doors. With super slim sightlines, sliding doors offer expansive views of the outdoors, even when closed. While they don’t open completely, due to one door panel remaining in place, the expansive glass offers a substantial view of your outdoor space.

Perfect for more compact areas, these doors slide smoothly along a track, overlapping one another. Therefore, eliminating the need for additional space to swing open. These sliding mechanisms mean that you can open your door as much or as little as you like depending on whether you’re letting the dog out for a quick run around in the garden or opening them wider for an alfresco dinner party.

French Doors: Timeless Charm, Enduring Appeal

These classic double doors, crafted from either uPVC or aluminium, effortlessly blend charm with contemporary flair. Many Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire homeowners appreciate the versatility of French doors. They’re ideal for linking patios and gardens to your living area, perfect for entertaining or enjoying quiet moments surrounded by nature. When closed, the large, glazed panels help to let in additional light, year-round without compromising on energy efficiency.  

French doors are ideal for properties with smaller openings that still require additional light. For an even more classic and traditional feel, enhance them with woodgrain finishes or Georgian bars. Their secure multi-point locking and low-maintenance design offer peace of mind. While the option for inward or outward opening allows you to customise them to help make the most of your space.
