When you opt for sliding doors, you can enjoy interlock sightlines that are as low as 20mm. This is a lot slimmer than that of the bifolds. This gives a stunningly sleek aesthetic, that provides luxury appeal, and will enhance the natural light allowance, whilst giving the illusion of a grander space.
