Looking for help/solution/guidance (anything!) on how to choose and install a sliding door for an ensuite.

The opening is actually not a conventional door shaped opening, it has a curved top.

Looking for help with which system to use and I am not looking to spend too much. The wall however does have the centre beam and obviously a skirt board at the bottom, so the door will need to have space to run in front of this.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Mmm it is an arched doorway, but its only a small ensuite and any solution is better than what it is now...

exposed opening with the toilet in full view to the bedroom.

Surely a double opening door would be using more space, as it comes out. With a single sliding door, it won't protrude too much.

I really don't mind having a curve top, just wanting to have a door, whilst I'm sitting on the toilet!!! lol
