Should You Use Sliding or Bi-Folding Doors on Your Garage Conversion?

The amount of people that actually use garages to store cars in is rapidly dwindling, and as the square footage of living space is coming at more and more of a premium it makes a lot of sense to convert your garage.

Garage conversions are becoming more and more commonplace. Converting your garage is a fantastic way to add value and space to your home by simply making a few changes to a room that is probably used for storage.

Of course, one of the biggest aspects of this conversion is swapping the garage door out for something else. Typically, this is a door or window. And for those with style and functionality in mind they often go for a sliding or bi-folding door. But if you are on the cusp of converting your garage, how do you know which to go for: a sliding or bi-folding door?

Each door has its own individual properties, and each is suited to different circumstances.

If the view when the door is closed is your primary concern then sliding doors take the win here. Due to their opening mechanism (the way they slide along the runners) we can offer our sliding doors with huge panes of glass, which makes for an uninterrupted view of the outside.

However, as the panes slide and overlap one another, when they are open they do not have as large of an aperture as bi-folding doors. And it is this large opening that bi-folding doors offer that really sets them apart. As bi-folding doors fold into themselves, when they are open you get about 90% of the space to pass through.

This makes bi-folding doors the clear winner if you are planning on spending a lot of time outdoors, and want to really lower the barrier between the outside and in.

So which do you choose? Both are manufactured in our facility near Huddersfield to standards way above the industry norm, and both will make your home look wonderful. So, it essentially boils down to how you plan on using the room: if you want to travel between the inside and out more then opt for bi-folding, but if it’s the view you’re after then the winner is clearly sliding.
