Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


While some people think that concertina doors are old-fashioned, others favor them for their space-saving qualities and various glass panelling options. What’s more, bi-fold doors are often used nowadays in contemporary or modern properties.

Ultimately, when choosing whether or not to opt for concertina doors, you’ll probably be considering other types of door including sliding doors and French doors, as more often than not, these types of doors are the choices for interior and back doors.

While various door styles offer advantages, here’s a few pros and cons of concertina doors to help you decide whether or not they should be installed in your home.


Pros and Cons to Concertina Doors

Concertina doors offer a wide and large view of the space on the other side, particularly where the doors are connecting outdoor and indoor space. As a result, many people prefer concertina doors for their ability to bring the outdoors, indoors. You can even, if preferred, opt to have an entire wall of your home replaced with bi-folding doors for a transparent-looking wall.

In addition, although many people are aware of it, bi-fold doors can be constructed from various materials, notably timber, oak and aluminum. Often, they can be designed to fit a property’s interior precisely too.

While the above points are clear advantages of concertina doors, there are a couple of things that tend to put people off having them installed. That is, firstly, that they worry about issues arising with the door hinges and other fixtures and fittings. And, secondly, that the frames are too thick.

That said, there are various options of concertina doors available that are all different thicknesses. Ultimately, when investing in good quality doors, you are much more likely to get a durable and hard-wearing door.


When Choosing your Concertina Doors

There are a few points that should be thought about before you purchase your concertina doors:

  • How Much glass would you like your doors to feature?

The more glass panels that your door has, the more natural light will flow into your property. While some people favour glass-heavy bi-fold doors, others prefer a more solid wood structure.

  • What is your budget?

You needn’t pay the Earth for bi-folding doors, however, it would be worth considering to invest time and effort into finding a reliable provider of bi-fold doors. You don’t want to opt for the cheapest bi-fold doors online, only to find that they are poor quality and unlikely to last more than a couple of years.

  • Material

Would you like timber, oak, aluminum or UPVC concertina doors? Perhaps you’ll choose the material that matches your property’s current windows and doors, or go for a new theme altogether?


No matter what concertina doors you choose, it is advised that you have them installed professionally to ensure that your bi-fold doors are fitted optimally.
