Internal Bifold Doors for Bathrooms

Bifold doors are used internally and externally in homes throughout the UK, and are perfect for lending your living space a more contemporary feel - especially if you favour open plan living.

While open plan living isn’t for everyone, it is growing in popularity -  some homeowners are even now opening up the upstairs of their properties, too, with many modern homes and new-builds featuring open plan en-suite bathrooms. Some may find this type of living uncomfortable, which is why bifold doors offer a great middle ground.

In this article, we’re going to discuss the pros and cons of installing internal bifold doors for the bathroom. We have similar articles within this series that may interest you. Please take a look through our guides on Bifold Doors for the Living Room, Bifold Doors for the KitchenBifold Doors for the Bedroom and Internal Bifold Doors for Wardrobes.

Which Door Is Suitable For Bathrooms?

Bifold doors, sliding doors, and standard doors are all suitable for bathrooms. In fact, as long as you have the space and budget, you can install any door on your bathroom - it all comes down to personal preference.

Before you take the plunge and replace your bathroom door, you must consider the cost, size, and style, as well as the space surrounding the door.

Sliding doors are ideal for small homes and homeowners that want to save space. A sliding door opens and closes using a simple push and pull mechanism. You will need to consider your wall space before installing though. When open, the main pane will sit behind the door’s second pane. This means your wall needs to be of a certain thickness for the door to operate correctly.

Bifold doors are another great choice for bathrooms. Not all bifolds feature a glass pane, so privacy doesn’t need to be a concern. Bifold doors are a great statement piece and operate smoothly. The only downside to using a bifold door for your bathroom is that the door opens in a concertina-fashion and stacks at the end of the track. If your bathroom is at the top of the stairs or you have a small landing, a bifold door probably won’t be suitable.

Bifold Doors For Bathrooms

Today, many homes feature open-plan bedrooms and en-suites. This creates the feel of more space and fluid living, although not having a door separating the bathroom from the bedroom isn’t always ideal.

A compromise could be to install bifold doors.

Installing bifold doors is an excellent way to choose when you want privacy and when you want to open your space up. When the bathroom isn’t in use, you can push back your internal bifold doors to open up the area and join the two rooms together. When you want to use the bathroom in private, you simply push the bifolds closed.

Why Choose Internal Bifold Doors?

Bifold doors run on tracks that operate smoothly and require minimal effort in order to open and close them. They require minimal maintenance, and even less if you choose bifolds without glass panels (the standard for bifolds for bathrooms).

Bifold doors make great statement pieces. The main materials used for bifolds are wood, uPVC, and timber. However internal bifolds tend to be made from wood. 

Wood is a great material for your bifold doors as the natural finish adds heaps of character to your home. Pair a set of wooden bifolds with white walls and minimal designs and you’ll soon completely transform your space.

If you use bifold doors to separate an en-suite from a bedroom, you must regularly treat the wood, or the steam from your shower or bath could damage it - even to the point of warping or rotting.

So Should You Choose Bifold Doors for Your Bathroom?

Bifold doors are versatile and robust. Installing bifolds throughout the home is an investment, but it’s one that will completely transform your home and how you move throughout it.

A bifold door for the bathroom is a great way to maintain your privacy, while opening up the space and connecting your bathroom to your bedroom.
