An increasingly popular style of door for your home is the minimal ‘barely there’ sliding door. Why? This slimline design differs to existing sliding doors, where the frame is very much visible, as the aim with the slimline model is to minimise sightlines and let the natural light flood in. Perfect if you’re looking to increase the natural light in your home!

But…is the slimline sliding door the right choice for you? You may be considering all the various options available; from the traditional sliding doors to bifold doors or French doors, and the choice you make will be largely determined by factors including design, functionality, price, and your desired look and feel.

So if you’re now wondering whether slimline sliding doors could be the right choice for you, we’re answering some frequently asked questions below to hopefully give you a helping hand in making your decision…
