"Excellent quality products which look good and are clearly well made."
"Our origin door has opened up our kitchen and breakfast room to our beautiful garden"
"Great products. Very satisfied with door and window."
"So it’s now been approximately a year since I had my bifold doors installed... I’m not one to rush into a review !! How can you tell if the product costing a pretty penny is good within a week or two ? I have to say I am totally happy with my choice of Origin for my extension. I looked at several companies and overall I found the quality stood out from the rest and British made too ! A year on and that choice has stood me well, wholly satisfied and would recommend their product."
"Good quality windowframes and bifold doors - a perfect fit in the apertures according to the supplied measurements. However one of the joining bars (fitted in the factory) was attached to the wrong side of the frame, which had to be rectified on site."
"Great quality, good colour choice available, excellent locking mechanism, looks very stylish at the side of our bi-fold door"
"Excellent product and brilliant local agent (Lincoln Window Design)"
"Excellent product, looks amazing!"
"Love the bi-fold doors! It is a little too early to say how they will stand up to repeated use but we've heard good things about them and the guys who installed the doors rated them. Big thumbs up so far."
"I have the bifold doors with the internal blinds looks fabulous easy to open and importantly easy to keep clean they are real show stoppers so impressed with the look"
"Purchased Origin replacement windows through Apollo Windows in Kent and they are as good as I thought when I first saw them. The quality of the window frames is excellent and I love the flush finish inside and out. They are not the cheapest but from all the windows I looked at, I am convinced they were the best aluminium windows on the market and worth the money."
"The works been done"
"The bi-fold doors we have had installed (by GX Home Improvements Ltd) are beautifully made, solid and yet very easy to open and close. We are now looking forward to opening a complete wall and extend our dining room into the new conservatory, great for our family meals with our children and grandchildren !"
"I went to East Grinstead Showroom and worked with Steve Jones, worth his weight in Gold The door are excellent the fitting was great, just one down side the window blinds dont hold there charge, apart from that i will keep recommending your doors."
"The doors are beautiful quality and look it too. They were fitted expertly by Hybrid Windows and look stunning. I am more tham pleased with them."
"Professional measuring up and installation .Good organisation by Emma.one minor blemish,a rather obtuse attitude from a lady in logistics when I was trying to talk to Kerry.Product excellent.will readily recommend the company."
"We had the bi fold doors supplied/fitted by formost 2000 and they are top quality and look fantastic I was delighted with the look and how good the installers were"
"Elegant bifold doors which maximise our view of the garden."
"The customer care provided by Bristol Bi Fold Doors was exceptional. We chose the product because of the quality, the guarantee and because of the different options. Installation was done with care and pride and we are delighted with the end product - particularly the internal blinds."
"Doors and window were exactly as I expected. Installers really professional and personable. I am really pleased with the finished product."
After making the decision to move out of London to raise their young family, Sam and Annuszka Ornbo, bought their 4 bed Aylesbury barn conversion in early 2015. The large, dark and draughty barn had not been touched since the original conversion in 1982, and needed extensive renovation work before the family could move in.
With two young children, making the home warm, inviting and secure was incredibly important to Sam and Annuszka. With old, single glazed wooden windows and doors throughout, the barn was draughty and noisy, and the 80s-style interior was not in keeping with the cosy, contemporary style the couple wanted to achieve.
As a result, the couple spent three months changing every aspect of the interior, from floor to ceiling - replacing the bathrooms and kitchen, as well laying used engineered oak barn wood flooring throughout the ground floor, with underfloor heating to ensure the house stayed warm throughout the year.
Sam’s grandfather was Danish, and Annuszka, a Business Stylist and Interior Designer, wanted to create a calm and cosy home that reflected their ‘‘Hygge’ (pronounced “hoo-ga” or hue-gah”) approach to life. Hygge, usually translated to “cosiness” (although there is no literal meaning for the word in English), is the feeling of warmth, comfort, and tranquillity within a home. It’s a concept that was developed in Denmark in the 18th Century but has since become popular across Scandanavia and is now sweeping the UK.
The Ornbo’s new bi-folding doors and windows certainly helped them to successfully achieve hygge as they flooded their home with natural light whilst keeping it warm during the cold months thanks to their exceptional thermal efficiency.
“We were recommended Origin by our installer, Multifold Doors, and after visiting Origin’s showroom in High Wycombe, were really impressed by the products”
In addition to the thermal properties of the Origin Doors and Windows, the Ornbo’s were also impressed by the sleek design and slim sight lines that the products offered. Furthermore, the finger safe gaskets and a 20-year guarantee gave the Ornbo family complete peace of mind in choosing Origin.
As a Grade 2 listed property, the couple had to opt for black windows and doors to complement the tone and style of their barn conversion – which work perfectly. To maximise the amount of natural light in their living space, they chose to have two bi-fold sets installed, one off the kitchen and one of the living room. As well as tall hallway window to further add to the home’s character.
“The Origin doors and windows give much better soundproofing from outside. We used to be able to hear the wind blowing the trees. Our house is so much warmer and much lighter now.”
Opening their downstairs space to their tranquil outdoor surroundings, has completely transformed the way the family interact with their home, helping to contribute further to the Hygge feel the family were so keen to achieve. The children now have the freedom to run in and out of the house safely, and the family get to reap the benefits of bi-fold doors all year round. Whether it be enjoying breakfast in the summer with the doors open, or snuggling up in the living room with the fire on, admiring the winter view.
“We love the bi-folds and windows. We always have the doors open in the summer, and the kids run in through the kitchen and out through the lounge”
The windows and doors have gone down well with the couple’s friends and family too, who particularly love the bi-folds and hallway window.
