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
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.
