Adding a shower to your home is something that all the family will appreciate and bi-fold shower doors allow you to fit showers into smaller spaces in the bathroom. The door is hinged and folds in on itself, rather than pivoting outwards. Therefore, a bi-fold shower door is the obvious solution for shower spaces in more confined areas such as en suites and cloakrooms.
All of our bi-fold doors are suitable for wet rooms and shower enclosures. We’ve included our own UK Bathrooms Essential brand for excellent quality at an affordable price.

Great value looks good
The Kudos bi-fold door delivered all that we were looking for. A good wide opening without bulky handles projecting which tend to inhibit other designs. A very smooth action and it closes sweetly on its magnetic contacts. An easy DIY fit with simple adjustment within the stated range of recess widths. The door, now fitted, looks expensive and yet at £300 delivered it did not break the bank. Delivery itself was swift and the purchase process on line was easy. We are delighted.
If you're planning to build a shower unit but don't have much space available in your bathroom, you'll need the right kind of shower door. This is in order to maximise the space you have. By using bi-fold or infold shower doors, you'll be able to eliminate the area required by outward swinging doors or pivot doors. And better use the space you have to build your dream bathroom. This will allow you to make the most of even a very small bathroom space. Or make use of a recess, alcove or corner to install your shower without it taking up too much of the room.
In general, when buying your bi-fold or infold shower door to suit the space available in your bathroom, you'll need to take a few different things into consideration. A framed or frameless look may help to complement the design or colour scheme of your bathroom best. The style will depend on whether you want a neutral shower enclosure or something to stand out and be a centrepiece of the room. In addition, the thickness of the glass will have an impact on the range of styles available, as well as your budget.
We stock a wide variety of different bi-fold and infold shower doors from some of the best quality manufacturers around. These include Kudos, Matki, Roman, Merlyn and Simpsons. We stock both framed and semi-frameless designs, and a variety of different thicknesses of glass for you to choose from.
This guide will explain the benefits of using bi-fold and infold shower doors. The different styles available, and the different range of products available in both categories. Which could allow you to build your perfect bathroom and make the most of your available space.
Bi-fold shower doors are one of the best ways of making the most from the available space in your bathroom area. Not only do they not extrude from the base unit of the shower, meaning that no additional space needs to be taken into account for the doors. They also use a concertina mechanism to slide open, making getting into the shower simple and easy too.
One of the main stylistic choices to consider when choosing a shower door is whether to opt for a framed or frameless look. Framed doors tend to be cheaper as they use much lighter and thinner glass, relying on the frame support to add stability and solidity. These are the most common types of shower door around. Particularly when it comes to bi-fold doors, as the concertina mechanism is easiest to use with lightweight material and a simple frame.
However, not all of the available doors are framed. A frameless look can really add a touch of elegance and class to any bathroom. The exposed glass with no frame means that it can fit almost any design or colour scheme in the room. For this reason, frameless doors have proven increasingly popular choices. There is a good compromise available for bi-fold doors too. A semi-frameless door, which leaves some exposed glass but supports the door with a metal frame on some sides. It allows many of the advantages of a frameless door. But also permits a bi-folding mechanism for the door to maximise the use of available space in your bathroom.
The Kudos Original Bi-Fold Shower Door gives another classic and simple design to add style to any bathroom while also remaining hugely cost effective. The robust frame is easy to clean but adds an extra shine to any bathroom and protecting the lightweight 4mm glass. Even at such a low price, the door also features a magnetic seal to close the door securely once you're inside, making sure that the door remains tightly closed and protected against any moisture. The door is perfect for giving you style even in a small and enclosed space.
The Kudos Infinite Bi-Fold Shower Door is perhaps the perfect example of how a frameless look can be given to a bi-folding shower door. A semi-frameless look leaves some exposed glass, while the rest of the frame uses an ultra minimalist design. This gives the shower an elegant look while also remaining as neutral as possible to match a huge range of designs. Made from thicker 8mm toughened safety glass, the door is as durable as it is stylish. The frame, although slight, uses chrome to lend an even further touch of quality and style. Making it an excellent addition to almost any bathroom, regardless of style, design or colour scheme.
Another alternative is the super sleek Matki Colonade Infold Shower Door. An extremely minimalist frame and bold hinges help to keep the design as neutral as possible. Retaining the benefits of a frameless design while keeping the easy structure and space saving infold mechanism. The design also allows a huge amount of great extras on the door to make it as easy and as smooth to use as possible. The super smooth action gliding doors make it easy to use, while a magnetic seal helps to make it close securely and lock out any moisture. A perfect fit for power showers and longer steam showers, the 6mm toughened glass can stand up to almost anything. And accordingly, it comes with a fantastic ten-year guarantee.
In general, thicker glass is more expensive but more durable, so the decision of what thickness of glass door to purchase will partly depend on your budget. However, frameless and semi-frameless designs generally require thicker and heavier glass. Just to render them as durable as a framed door. Framed doors allow a thinner glass to be used, generally making these doors a less expensive option for customers.
Our bi-fold shower doors mostly come in 4mm and 6mm variants, although 8mm variants do exist. Most notably in the semi-frameless Kudos Infinite Bi-Fold Shower Door. Make sure the thickness of glass in your shower door fits both your budget and your stylistic needs to get the perfect fit for your bathroom. Remember that thicker glass is also much heavier, so usually comes with special mechanisms to help provide a smooth glide to the door. While magnetic seals also help keep the door shut properly to guard against any moisture escaping.
