In­cred­i­bly versatile, bi-folds com­prise a se­ries of in­di­vid­ual fold­ing door pan­els, which can open in­wards or out­wards and be pushed to one, or both sides. Tim­ber bi-folds can be used to di­vide open-plan spa­ces – great if you want to re­duce noise, con­trol the tem­per­a­ture in dif­fer­ent zones or add pri­vacy. Glass bi-folds are ideal for the back of the house. “They can cre­ate the ul­ti­mate in­door-out­door en­ter­tain­ing area,” says Chris­tine Evans, Stegbar’s di­rec­tor of mar­ket­ing. “How­ever, when closed they in­hibit the view more than slid­ing and stack­ing doors.”

“Solid tim­ber doors are ideal for paint­ing or stain­ing, whereas ve­neer is of­ten con­sid­ered more eco­nom­i­cal and less prone to warp­ing or crack­ing,” says Bun­nings’ door buyer Richard New­land.
