How frameless bifolding doors improve open plan living spaces

Open-plan living in recent years has been one of the most popular ways of renovating the home.  Creating open plan living spaces may involve a new extension or knocking down walls on an existing property.

Open plan living has been enhanced with the use of large windows and folding doors. Our own frameless bifolding doors have enhanced many homes.  In creating a large living or dining space you can create a light, a sociable room and a flexible one.  Well designed open plan living spaces are also known to add value to a property for sale.

How to make internal space better with frameless folding doors.

image showing internal glass doors with door open

Despite all the advantages of open plan living it’s not for everyone and it may actually have disadvantages. For example there’ll be less walls to position shelves or furniture.

Items left in other areas of the living space may show it as being cluttered. Those who have separated a space to create a home office may find it noisy and distracting.  A children’s play area may make the room look untidy.

With our frameless room dividers and folding doors, it is possible to retain all the light and feeling of space but have added flexibility when needed and the ability to close of areas of the space.

What glass doors can be used inside the home?

At Frameless Glass Curtains we offer a choice of frameless door products that can help make your open plan living spaces more comfortable and quiet when needed as well as create an extra room when required.

10mm Frameless Single Glazed Internal Doors Solihull

We offer a range of single and double hinged doors.  These are manufactured from high quality aluminium patch fittings with a choice of contemporary handles.  They can feature ultra low threshold or even no threshold at all.

For larger spaces our frameless bifolding doors are great to close off an entire wall or separate a conservatory.  These come with a very low threshold, a choice of door leaves and virtually unlimited colour choice. These are available as slide and turn doors, sliding and folding doors too.

You can choose from either single or double glazed doors, a choice of primary door leaves, doors that can open in or out and many other options.

We can even create corner screens incorporating our doors to provide a lobby area to a large hallway or closed off space to provide a quiet workspace.  At the same time there is no compromise on light transmission or loss of the open plan arrangement.

If you’d like more information on how our frameless hinged and folding doors can work inside the home, please contact us.

Excellent service and product from FGC.I have a glass-box conservatory, built with structural glass about 20 years ago. The 2 sliding doors needed replacing, along with 2 side panels, and I contacted dozens of companies selling conservatory doors and none of them were prepared to install their doors because of the perceived risks of working with structural glass.Then I found FGC who, with no fuss at all, carried out a survey, provided a very reasonable quote for the doors/panels and then installed the doors/panels on the agreed date.Communication with the FGC office was always quick and easy. The surveyor and installation team were efficient and courteous. The product works beautifully.We can now use our conservatory again. Thanks FGC.

FGC installed a two-panel frameless glass door at our property yesterday. Wow!! the installation is exactly as discussed, and was carried out by two of FGC's team members who were so professional and courteous. They were excellent, and we have no hesitation in recommending FGC and their team to anyone considering such an installation.We are delighted with the installation, and very pleased we chose FGC.Well done FGC!!

We purchased a beautiful Origin sliding door and side window from FGC. FGC installed the sliding door and window on time, however the sliding door did not fit correctly. Issues can happen. FGC made the process of re-surveying and re-installation very simple. FGC is a very pleasant and professional company to deal with. We are very happy with their service and would strongly recommend them.

Excellent planning and product advice. All the staff were polite courteous and friendly.On the day of the installation, the team arrived bang on time -we live in Wales so a long drive from Kent! They had the job done by lunchtime (fitting a sliding patio door) and I have to say that on first impression of the unit, it looks and feels like solid quality.

We had a 5m stretch of these wonderful doors installed several years ago and have been very happy with the uninterrupted view of the garden that they allow from the living room. They are admired by every tradesman who sees them. A minor problem we experienced with water ingress last year was promptly and effectively resolved, and the doors were serviced for free at the same time.

Hugely impressed by your level of service.

I just wanted to say that I remain hugely impressed by your level of service. The two chaps who came out to service our doors were once again marvellous.  They are very polite and clearly very skilled. It’s very easy these days to complain and sometimes it’s nice to pass on credit where it is

We are extremely pleased with the doors

The installation of our new doors was eagerly awaited and did not disappoint. The fitters arrived on time on the agreed installation date. All waste was removed and the installation area was left clean and tidy. The fitters demonstrated the use of the system including future self maintenance which was very useful. We are extremely

Brilliant After Installation Service

Our FGC sliding doors were installed in May 2018.
Although we have had two relatively minor problems – neither of which stopped the doors from working – FGC have attended very promptly to carry out remedial action.
Excellent customer service from head office and excellent service from install technicians.

Mr M B @ Praa Sands, Cornwall

We wanted to connect two room – a ‘sun room’ and living room -by replacing a large window with some glass doors. We contacted local suppliers and Googled ‘glass partitions’. Local suppliers weren’t much help, however the Google came up with just what we wanted – frameless glass doors. We contacted Gary for a price.
