Bifolds vs sliders: which option suits your project?

Sun-soaked interiors, garden views and a harmonious connection between inside and out are just a few of the benefits glazed doors can bring – but which setup is right for your project? We speak to the experts to find out
The owners of this house specified sliding doors from The Caulfield Company to make the most of the garden views. Minimal vertical mullions, measuring 34mm across, ensure that the vistas are not broken up by bulky sightlines. Priced from £15,000, the Cero range of sliders is available with double or triple glazing

Avibrant living space bathed in natural light is something that many of us fantasise about when it comes to planning our self build, renovation or extension scheme. As well as drawing plenty of sunshine inside, a glazed entrance can help you frame prized vistas and establish an unbroken connection between inside and out.

Sliding and bifold doors represent a straightforward route to accomplishing all three goals at once. However, there’s more to choosing between these two options than just aesthetics – functionality, thermal performance and cost all play a vital role, too. We’ve rounded up a panel of industry experts to answer key questions and help you decide which solution is best for your project.
