Fold Flat Doors: An Experience of Timeless Beauty and Practicality

Fold flat doors are a beautiful way to transform a space in your home, office, or any other location of your choosing. This unique and modern system has recently been increasing in popularity, especially in modern architecture and interior design. Today we’re going to dive into how these systems work, the practical benefits, and some installation plus maintenance tips.

So, How Do These Systems Work?

Essentially, fold flat doors use specialist folding hardware which allows the door to rotate 180° when opened. When choosing your fold flat door, ensure that the hinges supplied are stainless steel (or any other strong material). This way, the hinges will be able to support the load of the door without causing it to tilt or warp. The most commonly used finishes for the doors themselves include white primed and oak, and you’ll also find that glazed doors are a good choice to go for as they allow light to flow from one room to another.

The Practical Benefits

Standard internal doors take up a lot of space when opened, which can sometimes become inconvenient if you prefer more of an open-plan look. You may have noticed that fold-flat doors are often used in both residential and commercial settings, and this is likely due to the fact that they maximise space while also being extremely practical.

So what should I do once I’ve received my doors?

If you have inspected your doors and are happy with the quality, you can then proceed with any staining or painting.

Oak Fold Flat Doors

Our oak fold flat doors will be supplied unfinished, and we always recommend applying a wood lacquer to the doors before fitting them. This will not only make the doors look better but will make them more protected against any damage that may occur over time.

White Primed Fold Flat Doors

Our white primed fold flat doors are supplied fully finished, meaning you don’t have to paint or stain the doors before fitting them.

Professional Fitting & Painting Services

If you want to be absolutely blown away with the finished look of your doors, there are lots of professional finishing and painting services available, but keep in mind that you will have to pay a little bit more than if you were to do it yourself. Your fold-flat doors will come with detailed fitting instructions; however, we always recommend hiring a professional tradesman to fit them as it can be extremely difficult to do yourself.


To conclude, fold-flat doors can be an excellent choice if you are wanting something unique that will save space whilst transforming the look of an area.
