    Bonsoir à tous,
    Comment dit-on en anglais "portes pliantes" (pour un placard).
    Et comme une image vaut mieux qu'un long discours, un exemple ici:

    (je ne cherche pas forcément le terme pour des portes avec miroirs),

    Merci d'avance,
    Caroline

    Ce terme est difficile à traduire. Folding closet doors?

    Thanks Mtrain17,
    I was about to suggest "bifold (or bi-fold?) closet doors" ?

    Bifold doors (for fitted wardrobes ??)

    I would call them "folding doors," on the other hand "bifold doors" is also used, is clearly more exact and might ultimately be advisable as it seems that some people use the term "folding doors" instead to refer to what I was raised to refer to as "accordion doors."
