How do corner bifold doors work?

There are a couple of different ways of installing corner bifold doors. You will need to think about whether you want a corner post where the bifold doors join, or do you want both walls totally open? This will make it look like your ceiling is floating.

The floating ceiling is an impressive option, however does bring its own level of difficulty. Everything above the doors will need to be supported so it involves a little extra work. We can put in a post that can slide away with the doors once they are opened.

You may need to get planning permission for corner bifold doors. And you are going to need to talk to an expert about the major structural changes to your house. Please make sure that your property can be held up without a structural post in the corner if this is the look that you want to go for.

Also have a think about your furniture inside and outside. How are you expecting to use the room once the corner bifold doors are fitted? Will your furniture fit where the doors will open, will you have enough room to walk through?
