Anthracite grey aluminium Sunflex bifold door

Bifold doors have become the quintessential ‘must-have’ for homes across Surrey, especially within self-build and renovation projects. Offering astounding amounts of light combined with gorgeous far-reaching views and on-trend open-plan living, bifolds make the perfect aperture option for the majority of homes across Guildford, Wimbledon and Esher. The stunning way bifolds can open up a whole wall with ease is beneficial to both smaller and larger homes, so we can’t imagine anyone not liking bifolding doors!

The world of bi-folds can be a confusing one, with many different materials, glazing options, operating systems and extras to get your head around. So, we thought we’d take the time to offer a few helpful tips on choosing the perfect bifolds to make your home truly stand out from the crowd.

1. Bifold door materials

At P & P Glass, we’re able to offer both aluminium and timber bifold door systems. Timber bifolds are ideal for traditional and period homes, whilst aluminium bifolds offer square-edged, slimline sightlines that are perfect for contemporary and commercial aesthetics.

2. Bifold door size

If you’re looking for a bifold system that can accommodate a wider opening, it’s interesting to note that aluminium bi-fold door panels can be made wider than timber bifold profiles – which can sometimes be more cost effective, as fewer doors are needed within the frame.
