Bifold and sliding doors are both great options for your home. The decision is up to you which style of door works best with the design of your house, but we can help you make that choice. We’ll break down the differences between these two popular styles of doors to help you make your decision. 

Bifold doors 

Bifolds come with panels that fold together like an accordion and slide on tracks to open up when needed. These types of doors typically offer more sound insulation than other varieties, but they may be difficult to install in some cases because it requires a certain amount of clearance behind them for the panels to swing back against the wall. 

Sliding Doors

If you’re ready for change and want to start fresh with new living space, then sliding doors are the perfect solution! For starters, sliding doors offer slimline frames that make them very practical and stylish. They also come with quality glazing that is durable and secure, great for back doors that are usually targeted by burglars.

Bifold vs Sliding Doors

Ultimately, it does depend on what your priorities are. If you want to be able to fully open the doors and give a seamless transition from inside out, then go for bi-fold doors. If you want to reduce the amount of frame and maximise glass sizes for maximum view, opt for sliding doors.
