What is a stable front door?

Stable doors for houses, often referred to as a Dutch door, is a unique type of door characterised by its horizontal split, dividing it into an upper and lower half. This distinctive feature is the hallmark of its design, allowing each half to be opened independently.

Originally, these doors were practical solutions in stables, designed to keep animals contained while permitting light and air to enter. Over time, this practical design has transcended its rural roots and whilst it has more commonly been found in country-style or traditional homes, is now becoming increasingly popular in more modern settings due to its unique blend of functionality and aesthetic appeal.

The rustic look of a wooden stable door adds a quaint, country charm to a residence, while its functionality aligns well with contemporary lifestyles.

FAQs – Everything you need to know about timber stable door designs from Timber Windows

When you think of stable doors, you picture them on old barns, country cottages, and agricultural conversions. Although they look the part on homes like this, they’re also suitable for most home styles thanks to advances in insulation and security. We offer a vast range of designs that can give that twee country cottage home look or something a little more formal to suit a more suburban property.

Traditionally, stable and barn doors would commonly open outwards and would swing back against the wall to allow a clear entrance for cattle or animals to access the barn. Nowadays, inward-opening doors are the popular choice as they don’t obstruct visitors waiting outside and are easier to leave open without being caught by the wind. At Timber Windows, we can customise your stable doors to open inwardly or outwardly depending on the specific requirements of your home.

Our stable doors come with fully integrated locks on the top and bottom door sash. These locks are controlled by 3* locking cylinders that are anti-pick, anti-bump and anti-snap. Glazing is toughened as standard but laminated glass can be fitted to give even more peace of mind.
Our wooden stable doors have 2 cylinders that control the full-height locking system. Both cylinders share the same key and the lower lock is fitted with a thumb turn for ease of use from the inside. However, thumb turns can be fitted to both the top and bottom of the door if you prefer the idea of not needing a key from the inside.
Our stable doors are just as energy efficient and draught-proof as our entrance doors and incorporate all of the same technology such as double rebated frames, dual seals, thermally split panels and gas-filled double-glazed units.
We can provide a supply and delivery service for capable DIY enthusiasts, but we also offer a fully inclusive installation package using our highly qualified in-house fitting team.
All of our stable style doors come with an industry-leading warranty. In fact, we guarantee the timber itself for 30 years, the paint finish for 12 years, a stained finish for 6 years and hardware and glass units for a decade.*

*Hardware and glass warranties vary depending on the chosen product and glazing method.

The lead times for supply and installation work can range between 16 weeks and 32 weeks depending on the time of year and the availability of our fitters. For supply and delivery jobs, lead times can range between 10 and 16 weeks.
