Sliding vs Bi-folding Doors: What’s Your Style?

Choosing which door set is the right system for you can be a difficult decision – although it’s easy to go with the majority vote and head straight for the bi-folding door section of our site, it’s not always the right way to go. Instead, it’s worth considering how you plan to use your doors, how much space you have on offer to accommodate them, and what design best suits your host property.

To help narrow things down, we’ve put together a little quiz. All you need to do is answer a few quick questions about your home and lifestyle, and we’ll direct you to the right door set for you!
