Choosing Between Sliding and Bi-Folding Doors: Your Comprehensive Guide by Matthew Leach, Director of Aluminium Doors Direct

Are you dreaming of seamless access to the outdoors and unobstructed garden views? Aluminium Doors Direct offers a wide range of functional and stylish home solutions to meet your needs. Selecting the right designs that work for you, fit your budget, and suit your space doesn’t have to be daunting, and this guide from Aluminium Doors Direct makes the process straightforward.

Sliding doors not only enhance aesthetics but also improve ventilation, save floor space, offer energy efficiency, and create a sense of flow throughout the home.

“In the last few years, there has been a noticeable increase in the appeal of sliding doors, particularly within aluminium profiles; now more than ever, people want open-plan, spacious-feeling homes.” says Owner Matt Leach. “Sliding doors have changed significantly over the years, both in terms of their visual appeal and the technological advances used in their production; this is what our company has focused on since day 1.”

Aluminium Doors Direct Ltd shares their top three key tips for choosing the perfect sliding door design.

  1. How to Choose Your Configuration

Panel configurations refer to the number of panels in your sliding door and the ratio of sliding to fixed panels. Sliding door panel configurations include two, three, four, and six panels. “How many panels you choose will be determined by the size of the aperture,” explains Owner Matt Leach “Homeowners prefer the largest panels feasible, however what’s achievable may vary based on the product.”

It’s crucial to work with a designer or company that guides you through the process with their expertise, much like the team at Aluminium Direct Doors. “If you wish to rearrange the area in the future, you can choose to have one, two, or more moveable panels, which will offer flexibility to adapt and change should you change your mind at a later date.” advises Matt Leach, Director of Aluminium Doors Direct.

  1. What Material Should I Choose?

While there are various materials available when designing your sliding doors, from UPVC to timber, aluminium tends to be the preferred choice. “Aluminium is a tremendously strong, lightweight, and visually beautiful material,” explains Matt. “Aluminium sliding doors are distinguished by their exceptionally thin sightlines and large transparent panels. They also provide excellent weatherproofing and energy efficiency.”

Investing in quality for your home is always preferable to choosing the cheap and easy route, which may lead to increased spending later due to lower quality. Sliding glass doors made of aluminium are often exceptionally durable and require minimal maintenance. They are also lighter than steel alternatives and tend to be more affordable, making them a sustainable, energy-efficient solution—a crucial consideration for modern homes.

  1. Choosing Color Schemes that Complement Your Interior Design Style

Aluminium Doors Direct offers a wide range of colors to choose from. The color should complement the brick, stone, or slate used in your building’s foundation, as well as any other doors or windows on your property. Consider your property’s surroundings as well.

“Black will complement your decor while keeping things tidy in a modern home, and it may be matched with black light fixtures like pendants and wall lights,” suggests Matt Leach. “Spend some time examining both your indoor and outdoor spaces. Do any hues stick out as being predominant in the area? There may be a lot of vegetation nearby, or there may be a lot of concrete patios or grey decking. There are two options available to you when selecting a colour. You can choose to go with a contrasting splash of colour that really makes your doors stand out, or you can try to blend in your doors so that they are in harmony with the rest of the colours.”
