When homeowner Jo Mitchell decided to embark on an extensive home conversion project in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, JELD-WEN was the number one choice for the internal joinery products.

In 2013 the homeowner began work to convert an old annex, which was previously used as a games room into an open plan living space. The intention was to upgrade the existing room which involved lowering the floor to make a feature, and open up the room by introducing an internal folding sliding doorset.

The homeowner was specifically looking for a product that could open two rooms into one and that would not interrupt the new wooden flooring with runners. JELD-WEN’s Room Fold interior folding sliding doorset was selected as the perfect solution as it could do just that! The Room Fold doorset is top hung with no bottom track, which means it is not only quicker to install but it also provides uninterrupted flooring from room to room.

The homeowner opted for a contemporary look with the primed Shaker 4 panel doorset, which required no additional decoration once installed. The glazing panels enabled light to flow through the property, creating the open plan feel that he homeowner wanted to achieve.

Chris Miller, Doors Product Manager at JELD-WEN commented, “Room Fold folding sliding interior doorsets are a great way to bring flexibility to your interior design - particularly when it comes to how much light, ventilation and privacy you want the space to include. You can open up your living space to create the feeling of open plan living, allowing light and air to flow between rooms, or alternatively can be closed fully with a single door that operates independently to create two separate rooms.”

Jo Mitchell, Homeowner commented, “We were extremely pleased with the finished result, the Room Fold doorset allows me to open up our new lounge area to the rest of the house. It makes a real impact as you come into the house, and makes both the hallway and the lounge look and feel brighter.”
