"Although our extension isn't finished,we love the doors, the colour and how smooth the open and shut"
"They look beautiful the only thing is not good the fact 1 of the doors just swings about nothing to hold it back"
"The lead times are absolutely amazing and the quality is great too. Unreserved recommendation!"

"Had my new doors fitted last week absolutely love them"
"Fast, efficient and a great quality product!"
"Good design for looks, security, and the dual colour option."
"I had the Bifold doors and a residential door. I purchased my Bifolds through Basfords in Nottingham I live in Birmingham and these guys were the best to go with price wise and confidence wise. I cannot tell you how fantastic my doors look the attention to detail on both the Bifolds and the front door is second to non. Thank you to Origin and thank you to Basfords who are a real credit to the Origin team."
"Hello, I have this week had a bi-fold door fitted in my home by Fox Windows and Doors of Stoneleigh in Warwickshire. My wife and I are very pleased with the door. However, although we requested that the internal seals and gaskets would be white in colour to match the internal colour of the door, one of the gaskets is black. See enclosed photos. When we questioned this with our supplier, we were informed that they had contacted your company and were advised that this particular gasket (the one that seals the main opening door) was only supplied in black. This seems a bad idea as it detracts from the look of the door. Why offer all other seals and gaskets in white but offer this one only in black? If you cannot supply this gasket in black, there is not much that I can do about it, but my feedback would be that in future you should offer it in white as it will improve the look of the door. If in future you do decide to supply it in white, can I have one please?!! Thank you. John Bench p.s. this "review" is a copy of an email that I sent to Origin customer services on 17th November. I have not received a reply!"
"The doors are extremely well made and fit perfectly. They look fantastic"
"Very pleased with Bi-folds noticed big difference from are old patio double glazed doors, fitters had radio on outside and you could hardly hear it and we think it made room warmer."
"It was obvious to see by both looks and operations that it was a quality product"
"Brilliant doors and they look great! Would highly recommend"
"Good quality product. Bi-fold doors far better than our old sliding doors."
"Origin Bi fold doors are absolutely great, very easy to glide back to open and close. Made a difference to the room."
"Doors very good but small issue with finish on leading edge of door. Silver cover bar does not extend to top of door. Examples in Orion Windows showroom no better. Poor finishing to an otherwisea good product. Orion Windows chased up with yourselves and was promised a call from your technical team to explain the problem but nothing forthcoming. (See attached photo) Disappointed customer"
"Fitted quickly and expertly by Essex Bifolds. It all works very smoothly."
""Romsey Conservatories provided an excellent service and patiently held the quote while we obtained planning permission for our 5 panel cornerless bifold on a second floor balcony overlooking the sea. They liaised extremely well with us and our builder who was managing the work, and the installation went very smoothly, on time and with no problems. After sales service has been faultless. The end result is stunning!""
"Product very good - would have welcomed a guide to maintain the bi-fold doors for on going reference especially as i believe they may have dropped making opening difficult. But no faulting the quality."
"Only had the the bi fold doors about a month and seem so far to be okay. However, I have two issues, firstly condensation on the frame, it is a new build so this could be due to the building drying out and time will tell. Secondly, I require a door restrictor, but Origin do not offer one, consequently my only option is to add a cabin hook which will not improve the appearance of the doors."
"Beautiful stylish big old doors , Easy to use and maintain"
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.
