Wondering how narrow you can go with your bifold doors? Do you like that sleek aesthetic, but wondering how to achieve it? Choosing the right size door frame for your bifold doors is an important decision when renovating or starting from scratch.

Did you know here at Kloeber, we have an option for a slimmer bifold door? Slimline bifold doors are a more compact space-saving option compared to standard bifold doors. They feature thinner frames thus allowing for reduced sightlines and even better views when the doors are closed. They fit the more contemporary home whilst also complimenting a traditional home too – and our RAL colour system means you can even opt for a quaint countryside shade (but more on that later!). Standard bifold doors typically suit larger openings, for example, the width of a medium to large kitchen, while slimline models are better suited for smaller spaces, still giving the option to open up that space and let the light flow in.

KustomFold Bifold Doors – How Narrow Can They Be?

Kloeber’s range of timber KustomFold bifold doors are also offered as a slimline version, appealing to those looking for a more cost-effective option and contemporary aesthetic. With slimmer sightlines than our standard KustomFolds, the slimline version is low maintenance and offers a multi-coat microporous paint system to look just like aluminium!

You can therefore achieve the aluminium look but with the warmth and insulation values of timber. Generally, slimline KustomFold bifold doors offer a 20mm saving on the top and side door panel (80mm vs 100mm) compared to the standard timber KustomFold. This may not seem like a lot, but it will provide a noticeable difference to your general aesthetic especially if making the most of space is your end goal! See the difference HERE.

Just because you may have opted for the slimline version of our KustomFold bifold doors, doesn’t mean you compromise on quality as they come with the same benefits as our standard option: 

  • Available in solid engineered FSC certified softwood, hardwood or oak (a sustainable choice!)
  • Provides excellent U values and insulation
  • Choice of opening configurations
  • Choose from a selection of stain finishes or let the creative juices flow with any RAL colour
  • Dual colour options available (match your interior design!)
  • Inward or outward opening doors
  • Double or even triple-glazing to keep those heating bills down
  • Top hung with the bottom guided on an aluminium track

Don’t just take our word for it…

Remember what we said about any RAL colour? This customer really proves that bright and colourful glazing totally works and can still retain a timeless feel, we’re obsessed and love this creative design choice! 

The slimline bifold door was chosen to make the most of this space, providing an exterior patio door that fits not only with the size of the room but also with the aesthetic. A bold and vibrant rose (also seen on the fixed glazing!) was used to compliment the interior decor and provide this home with a cosy yet contemporary look and feel. Mission accomplished! If this tickles your fancy – the RAL code is 3017 Rose, you’re welcome ;).
