We are in a bit of a dilemma... We have added a wall to our Lounge to close off and create a Theatre Room. Problem is to retain the 5 star rating we've been told there needs to be a 2100mm wide space in the wall to allow natural light to enter the room. After handover, we were originally going to put a sliding door in to close off - but now believe it is too wide, so bi-folds are the only option... Any ideas?
Also, how difficult is it to install a sliding door into an existing wall/space?

Instead of Bi fold doors for our home we are putting in sliding aluminium stacker doors. Cheaper than Bi folds and also can have flyscreens.
It would be cheaper to have it done now rather than later, although it can be done later if you so wish but it will cost!
Finally Designing and building the home I always wanted to!

We are doing a similar sort of thing with our living room, we are going to put in custom made wall hung sliding doors. You can buy the track/hanging section and then get the doors made to suit the opening ie: 2 x 1100 wide doors in your case.

Anything is possible if you are prepared to pay. If your wall is non-load bearing, then all you would need to support with a lintel are the bricks above the window…
