Origin bifolding doors with integral glass blinds and windows to a new kitchen extension.

In Elstow, Bedford, our bespoke Origin doors and windows help create a beautiful and contemporary kitchen extension.

Our clients were constructing a brand new space comprising a new kitchen and dining area. To the kitchen section of the room, are  Origin windows.  These come as a large side hung casement window with a fixed pane. The grey window colour works well with chrome window handles. Finally, high specification glazing and security locking complete the product.

The bifold doors feature the advanced integral glass blinds for privacy and shade.

Origin Doors with Integral Blinds.

The Origin bifolding door is a best selling bifolding door packed with features and specifications that make it our best-selling bifolding door. With an Origin bifolding doors you benefit from several features not found on other folding doors such as:

  • A 20-year guarantee
  • Finger safe and colour matched gaskets.
  • Individual wood effect finishes.
  • A huge choice of colours and styles
  • Superior Quality Hardware

Another significant enhancement to this high-quality bifolding door is the provision of integral blinds.

These are horizontal blinds that cleverly sit between the glass of the doors. This not only provides a bifolding door blind that is very reliable but one that will never need cleaning, will not gather dust and one that will not get blown about in draughts or when other doors or windows are open.

The other great feature of integral blinds in bifolding doors is that they provide controllable and flexible privacy while still keeping your doors visible at the same time.

Bifolding doors in contemporary Grey colours.

Grey is a very popular colour for bifolding doors. It is a shade that works well with both light and dark interior decors. For large doors such as bifolds, grey also works very well with contemporary flooring and looks good with slabs or decking when viewed from the outside.

In this particular property, the dark grey RAL 7016 colour work very well with the lighter grey interior walls, furniture and floor tiles as well as the highly contemporary kitchen units.

Origin bifolding doors helping to open up a living space.

The other feature of our Origin bifolding doors with integral glass blinds is that we designed them so that they all slide to one side. At the same time, they provide very convenient access thanks to their access leaf.

The main locking door is hinged on the right as you look at the doors from the outside. An access leaf can be conveniently opened to go out into the garden, without having to fold the remaining four panels back. If your bifold is to be the only door out to your garden, we recommend the use of an access leaf for convenience all year round.

Our Origin bifolding doors have helped create a beautiful kitchen and dining area to this Bedfordshire home. The result looks great. Our customers were also very with Open Living and their Origin bifolding doors. They told us:

We enjoy every moment to spend family time in the kitchen, with marvellous open space thanks to your beautiful doors. Thank you so much for your entire services, and we will definitely recommend your products and services to all of our friends and neighbours!

Open Living was one of the last suppliers we discovered, but we were taken by their great range of windows, doors and lanterns as well as their sales team. Diane walked us through the many options but also listened to our preferences. Rather than steering us toward the most expensive option they were usually able to offer a choice on each aspect and the pricing was very transparent and competitive. Excellent quality ranges of windows, doors and lanterns. We opted for the Origin bi-fold doors, Origin aluminium windows and Atlas roof lights, all superb build quality/spec and great colour options.The installation team led by Danny and backed up in the office by the all-knowing Marsha and Linda were efficient, thorough and a pleasure to have on-site, coordinating well with our builder. Our neighbours also used Open Living before us and had a few issues at installation, but we believe these were mainly due to a supplier issue. All our windows, doors and roof lights went in as planned, well secured and sealed, with no damage.The only little point of feedback on their whole process is that the final quote and specification can spread across more than one document which did add a little uncertainty. This meant we had to double-check exactly what was coming. An all-inclusive final statement of all the options would be good. However, with a little bit of checking everything did come exactly as expected and we are extremely happy with the finished project.We would definitely recommend Open Living.

We purchased 1 set of bifold and 1 set of French patio doors, both Origin. Sales approach and customer service was excellent. Fitting and installation also excellent. Can't fault the product, either. Would have been 5 stars if it wasn't for an issue we had around the height of the threshold, which turned out to be much higher than we wanted/were expecting. This issue was resolved in a satisfactory way after discussion. Would definitely recommend, but my advice is to make sure the threshold height for patio doors is agreed at the survey and written on the paperwork before parting with any money.

Lovely people to do business with, we bought some BiFold doors and a window from OpenLiving. We did have a couple of minor teething issues once fitted but these were dealt with quickly and without fuss. Recommended!

I looked into a number of companies before deciding on Open Living in Letchworth for our bifold doors. I wanted the bifolds to be from a manufacturer that was very regarded, and Origin (though Open Living can also supply from Schuco and some other suppliers) certainly fall in that camp. I also liked the fact that Open Living were close to home, which made repeated visits to their showroom easy to make. Throughout the process, Linda and Marsha were professional and courteous and I would thoroughly recommend anyone who is looking to get bifolds to put OpenLiving Ltd on their shortlist.

So far I have ordered 12.5m sliding doors, 1 set of aluminium bi-folds and 5 windows from Open Living. The fitters are all great guys, and they take time to do a good job.The service and the products supplied have been excellent. I will be ordering more windows and do not hesitate to recommend them.

Had some OW80 windows that were fitted some time ago (by other installers, who had lost the cill caps).Marsha kindly helped me get some replacement items from Origin despite there being no financial incentive for open living to do so.Assistance has been very much appreciated and would highly recommend.

Had a great experience with Open Living. We had a 6m run of Origin bi-fold doors, an Atlas sky light some upvc windows installed. Customer Service and communication was good throughout, the installation guys did a good job and their technical guy was helpful with determining levels so we could achieve a level and flush threshold on the door. On top of this they were by far the lowest priced installer we found for the Origin doors which we had quoted by another three suppliers. Would recommend to others and will use again.

We weren't quite sure what bi-folding doors would be best but all the options were clearly and concisely laid out before us and some great solutions suggested to the issues we hadn't been able to work out on our own or with our builder. The showroom has lots of choice, brilliantly set out. We decided that Open Living would install our doors and they came and did a wonderful job.Looking forward to the spring to really get our new "open living" lifestyle underway!!
