Choosing what type of bifold door you will use for your entertaining area or wardrobe will be very similar to choosing any type of door. Two of the more popular types that you can choose between include:

  • Hollow Core – This is an extremely economical and lightweight choice, making them extremely easy to install. Even so, these doors are extremely durable and can be manufactured with a number of decorative features (from raised panels to wooden veneers).

  • Solid Core – This is a more expensive option, but one that is far more durable than the above type. Like hollow core doors, these ones are available with a number of decorative features (but more closely resembles a timber finish).

For a personal touch, you are able to choose casing, trim and even doorstops for your bifold doors. These sorts of features are not generally included in your original purchase, so you will be required to pay extra for their inclusion (but the aesthetic appeal of these features certainly makes them something that you should consider). 

As well as making your bifolds look more attractive, casing, trim and door stops can be used to protect the panels from much of the everyday wear and tear that they will be subjected to.
