In recent years, bifold doors have grown in popularity, as they allow people to bring the outdoors inside their home. If you want the ability to completely open up your living space, then bifold doors might be right for you.
Bifold doors fold back on themselves, so when they are open, you get unobstructed access to the outdoors. During the summer months, you can remove the barrier between your living and outside space, which opens up your home to lots of fresh air and natural light. In the winter months, these glass doors allow you to enjoy the outside view in all weathers.
We can design bifold doors that have the perfect look and fit for your home. You can choose between many styles, colours and finishes to tailor them to suit your property and tastes.

Bifold doors are easy to open and close and slide effortlessly, and when there’s a gust of wind, you don’t have to worry about rattling doors. Bifold doors can be built with two to seven panes, so it doesn’t matter what size you require, we can make it to your measurements. We can also create your doors so they stack inside or outside your home, and you can decide which way they open, depending on what’s practical for your home.

Do you need a bottom track for bifold doors?
At St Ives, we always install a bottom track with our bifold doors/ This is because, without this bottom track, all the weight of the door is hung from the top track, so a strong lintel is needed. A bottom track also gives you a much smoother opening and makes the doors feel more stable.
How long does bifold door installation take?
Bifold doors are made in our UK factory, and once they’ve been delivered, they can be installed in just one day. You simply need to decide which style you’d like, plus details such as the finish, and we can manufacture them in about six weeks. We’ll then arrange for our expert engineers to carry out your installation with minimal disruption and hassle, so you can enjoy your new bifold doors as soon as possible.
Can bifold doors add value to my house?
Bifold doors can open up your home and let in lots of natural light, both things that can appeal to potential buyers. If you have a great outdoor space that’s not being used as much as you like, bifold doors allow you to enjoy the view year-round. Bifold doors are stylish and modern, as well as being energy efficient, and they can add an interesting feature to your home.
How do bifold doors work?
A bifold door is built with two to seven large glass panes, which are fitted to a track, and slide across. These leaves separate, and fold back on themselves like a concertina, so once you’ve pulled them across all the way, they neatly stack out of the way. Bifold doors can have an advantage over sliding or French doors, as they tend to give you more open space and a contemporary feel. Come and visit our showroom if you’d like to see how they work.
Do bifold doors suit large or small spaces?
St. Ives Windows manufactures all the bifold doors we install, which means they can be made to all sorts of sizes. If you have a large living space, they can open up your home and bring in lots of natural light and fresh air. In smaller spaces, they can make your rooms feel more open, and because they fold away neatly, you don’t sacrifice any extra space. Some customers prefer them in smaller spaces, as traditional patio doors always have one glass panel that can’t be opened, while bifold doors open all the way.
Do the doors stack inside or outside?
Your doors will be manufactured to your specifications, so it’s completely up to you whether they are made to stack on the inside or outside of your home. If you have a patio area with furniture or plant pots that might get in the way of the stacking doors, then you might want to have them designed to stack inside. If your indoor space is limited, or the layout just won’t suit doors stacking indoors, then we can make them stack outside your property. Visit our showroom if you’d like to see the different options available.
