"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!"

"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."

"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. "
"The doors give a lot of light and are easy to move"
"we had a new bifold patio door fitted by indelux windows of Cheltenham Gloucestershire. very pleased with the origin door and also very pleased with the fitters a very clean and tidy job .many thanks"
"Beautiful door. Will be purchasing my front door as well soon as the funds are available. "
"The quality and final finish is excellent. The installation was done by contractors who installed without any problems. The Warranty validity is reflection of 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 "
"Very pleased, with the panel, which goes beautifully with the doors."
Find out about ourBlind Types
At Origin, we’re passionate about combining faultless functionality with unparalleled aesthetics, and our blinds are no exception. Effortlessly complementing our doors and windows, Origin Blinds offer a stylish and practical means of controlling the light levels in a home, whilst simultaneously providing additional privacy from the outside world.
Aside from adding a dash of opulence to your home, Origin Blinds also provide tangible year-round benefits. During the summer, you’ll be able to enjoy an unobstructed view of your outside area, with the option of shading when required. All blind fabrics come with an intelligent reflective exterior to prevent the heat build-up inside your home. When the weather turns cooler, the blinds can boost your home’s thermal efficiency by preventing warmth from escaping.
Where style meets safety
Style alone isn’t enough. Every Origin product has been designed with safety at the forefront. Whether you opt for mains operated, battery operated or manual configurations.
You can rest assured that your Origin product has been meticulously designed to ensure child-safe functionality. Our electric roller blinds are controlled by either wall mounted switch or remote control. Our manually operated pleated blinds are controlled via tensioned systems, easily operated by simply moving the bottom section vertically. Avoiding dangerous hanging cords.
These and other safety features guarantee that all Origin blinds are child-friendly, allowing you to choose any option with confidence.
Choose your power option
Origin blinds are available in battery-operated, mains-operated or manually-operated options. The battery and mains-operated blinds are available to be specified using either the Lutron System or the Origin System.
- A mains-powered system works well for larger blinds, as it easily supports their weight, plus there’s no requirement to replace batteries.
- With battery-operated blinds, no wiring is needed, making it an ideal option for retro-fits.
- Manually operated blinds are a more cost-effective option. They are well suited for smaller windows.
- For ultimate control, you can even specify for your electrically operated blind panels to work independently. This will require more motors, but rest assured - they arrive pre-configured to synchronise perfectly with one another; ensuring each panel rises and falls at the same speed.
|Power Type||System Available|

* Pleated blinds can be battery operated if they are installed in front of the door / window
** Pleated blinds are manually operated when they are installed to the beading of the door / window

Choose your fabric
Choosing the right fabric
Fabric choice is a fundamental part of tying your look together. Whether you’re furnishing a home from scratch or refurbishing one room, the right materials, design and colour scheme can make all the difference. Here are a few tips to help you select the best blind fabric for your project.
The room type, as well as the purpose for your blinds, is the first thing to consider. For example, if they’re intended for a bathroom, you’ll want to opt for a more durable material that’s able to cope with damp and steam. By contrast, if you’re decorating a child’s bedroom, then blackout blinds are a great option to avoid being woken up too prematurely on those early summer mornings.
If your blind is being installed in a draughty location (not that such a thing exists if you have Origin Doors or Windows), then you may prefer a heavyweight material. This will provide better thermal efficiency and will also reduce light filtration if your window is in line with the sun for much of the day. A heavier material will also retain its shape for years, whereas a lighter material, while a good choice for many, may start to lose its shape over time.
While some people enjoy following the latest trends (roller blinds have been a popular choice for many years), others prefer to make individual statements or opt for something a little more unusual. Luckily, there are endless designs available, from understated plain fabrics that complement any décor, through to bold statement patterns.
To some extent, the size of your room will dictate what patterns you can get away with. While large, bold patterns are great fun, they can dwarf a small room. Conversely, in large, open spaces, plainer designs may make the area look a little cold and sparse. Whatever your room size and style, you can be sure we’ll have a pattern to suit.
If you’re looking for increased privacy, blackout blinds are just the thing. They’re especially effective in children’s bedrooms, where added privacy and restricted light may be preferable. With fabrics ranging from sheer and lightweight through to complete blackout, we have a solution for every purpose.
Fabric cost depends entirely on the size of window you want to cover, along with the fabric you choose. To find the perfect blind to suit your specific budget, visit your local Origin accredited partner who will be happy to help.
