Maximise space in your existing home

Free Consultation Download Brochure

Our glass and aluminium bifolding or sliding doors can be included in any bespoke Apropos extension, conservatory orangery or structure, incorporated into the design for your new-build property or used to maximise space in your existing home.
Whatever the weather, sliding doors and bifolding doors allow you to enjoy your garden and bring the outdoors in. Large glazed panels admit light and keep out the harsher elements, merging home and garden and allowing for a space which can be effortlessly adapted to any season.

Form and Function

The concept of merging the outdoors and the indoors runs through the heart of all Apropos' architecture in glass -and sliding doors and folding sliding doors are a simple, yet effective, way to achieve this goal. The addition of glass doors to any building instantly creates a lighter and more airy space, and totally transforms both a room's function and its form.

Sliding or Bifolding Doors?

All Apropos' sliding and bifolding doors are customer made to order at our modern facility just outside of Manchester. So, whichever style you choose we can design and manufacture a set of doors to fit whichever area of the home you have in mind. If you're considering adding a bespoke doorset to your current Apropos design there are also no restrictions on the size and style of your chosen doors.

The only thing left to do is choose your side; bifolding doors or sliding doors? Generally, sliding doors are easier to operate (although it doesn't take a rocket scientist to work the bifolds either) and will require no space on either side of the threshold; making them the perfect choice where space or access is an issue. Wider panes of glass can be utilized and thus larger expanses displayed.

Folding sliding doors however, allow for the opening up of the entire side of your home or property and create a completely open thoroughfare between home and garden. Folding sliding doors can be folded and stacked to left or right and to the inside or outside of the threshold, depending on your preference, but do need the right amount of space to do so.

If you're still unsure which bespoke Apropos door system is right for you get in touch today to arrange a no obligation design consultation with one of our experts.

Glass Extensions

The Brief
