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.

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.

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.

We love our new kitchen windows fitted by FGC - we particularly chose them for their slim frames. Their service has been excellent throughout, including on a recent maintenance item. We would highly recommend them.

Delighted

Delighted with final result and extremely pleased that I decided on these ‘frameless glass doors’ over conventional bifolds. The company had no end of patience with any pre-order questions that I raised and the factory visit and visit to view an existing installation were very informative and reassuring. The team that fitted were professional, attentive

Arranging installation (were we on time and on schedule)
Installation ahead of schedule and were on time on

Porch Door

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.

Mr & Mrs B – SW11

We are very pleased by the results the only comment will be re protecting the work area to avoid dust or waste . 😉 As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)?

  • Yes great service and very responsive

Arranging installation (were we on time and on schedule)

  • Yes

  • Not really as mention above

Grand Designs!

We are both delighted with the FGC product and have no issues with any future viewings. From our perspective the “outside has truly come inside”, we use the decking on a daily basis as the FGC curtains have transformed the house which I think adds a significant value to the property. The only trouble now

A big thank you

The service I received from FGC was professional and prompt from the initial on site survey through to installation and completion. Added to this the finished product has exceeded my expectations. It has enhanced my home with style and individuality, and enabled me to make use of the space in a way that is ‘unique’.

Exceeds expectations

Just to thank you for great service, it exceeds expectations and is really appreciated. Please circulate around your team and particular thanks to the two guys who completed the work professionally and represented your company very well. Thanks again Reg Ford
