    Stable doors

    The humble stable door has seen a resurgence in recent years for its innate ability to transform any home with rural, character-rich aesthetics. Combining modern functionality with quaint countryside charm reminiscent of a bygone era, stable doors can elevate both contemporary and period properties alike with statuesque elegance but are particularly suited to converted farmhouses, barns and rural cottages.

    If you’ve been considering refurbishing your property but are hoping to retain the traditional aesthetics that make your home unique, such as sash windows or an old timber door, the installation of a uPVC or composite stable door can deliver modern conveniences such as heightened security and optimal energy efficiency ratings without compromising on the historical elements that make your home truly unique.

    Majestic Designs has manufactured our range of stable doors right here in Somerset in our state-of-the-art factories for more than 19 years. Our FENSA accredited and MTC registered leading teams of expert installers boast a wealth of industry experience and local knowledge, resulting in a county-wide reputation for excellent customer service and expert craftsmanship.

    Statuesque Stable Doors

    Integrating modern convenience with quaint countryside charm

    A stable door has all the benefits of a window, with the security of a resilient door. Divided horizontally through the middle, a stable door features an innovative dual opening system. Locked securely, it operates just like any other traditional residential door. However, with the bottom sash locked in place, you can open the top half of the door, allowing airflow and natural light into your interior living spaces. As a result, stable doors are ideal in residential homes where young children and animals are present. Parents and pet owners alike can maximise ventilation and natural light within their homes without compromising on security. A practical yet aesthetically elegant addition to any property, modern stable doors essentially combine traditional aesthetics with innovation and functionality.

    Stable doors have a long history here in the UK and abroad. Originally engineered in the 17th century, stable doors rose to prominence in The Netherlands as a way of keeping small children safe within private homes in rural communities – and wandering farm animals like ducks and chickens out. Also known as a half door or Dutch door, stable doors eventually spread across Europe to the UK and Ireland and become an enduring choice in agricultural properties here. In Ireland, the popularity of stable doors is attributed to a desire to avoid extra taxes on windows and glass that was introduced during the 19th century.

    The installation of a stable door also has many benefits for the modern home. During the warmer summer months, the top sash of a stable door can be thrown back to maximise airflow within your property. A stable door creates a barrier to deter rodents and insects while keeping young children and the family pet safe indoors. In the cooler winter months, homeowners can ensure their property is well ventilated by keeping the top sash open or insulating their property by locking the door fully to act as a traditional accessway. Engineered from your choice of uPVC or composite materials, your home will benefit from optimal energy efficiency ratings as well as heightened security.

    Perhaps most pertinent, the installation of a stable door within your home brings your household closer to your garden or patio, fostering a sense of intimacy within your property that can dramatically improve the wellbeing of you and your family. Stable doors are also suitable for installation as an interior accessway and can add a rustic flair to both contemporary and traditional décor alike.

      The lifestyle benefits of stable doors

      While aesthetically stylish and suitable in both contemporary and period properties alike, there’s no denying the benefits of stable doors within a family home – especially one with young children. During the warm summer months, parents can keep external and internal doors firmly shut without compromising on natural light or airflow. In a family home, stable doors can essentially act as baby gates resulting in increased security and peace of mind.

      Internally, stable doors can be used as an accessway to the kitchen or utility room. Essentially, stable doors are incredibly practical, as parents can easily see what’s happening in an adjoining room if they have to nip out for a moment. Externally the same principle applies when it comes to sheds, garages, barns or outhouses that require restricted access but benefit from airflow.

      uPVC stable doors

      uPVC, also known as unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, is a durable, long-lasting building material. Revered for its high energy efficiency ratings, uPVC is cost-effective with low maintenance and incredibly resilient, making it the perfect material for use in windows and doors.

      uPVC is one of the most popular materials on the market for use in doors, including the fabrication of stable doors. Combining modern functionality with countryside charm, uPVC is a cost-effective solution to aluminium, steel and timber, and is ideal for use in stable doors.

      Composite stable doors

      Combining charming rural aesthetics with heightened security and optimal energy efficiency, composite stable doors are manufactured using modern uPVC and durable timber core. Featuring a resilient, thermoplastic skin, composite stable doors combine the modern necessity with the quirks of rustic, countryside features.

      uPVC stable doors vs composite stable doors

      At the end of the day, choosing between a uPVC stable door and a composite stable door will come down to your own personal tastes, your budget and the unique specifications of your property. When engineered correctly to a high standard, both materials are highly resilient to the elements and offer optimal levels of security and energy efficiency.


      How much will stable doors cost?

      The cost of installing your stable door will come down to the exact specifications of your home and your tastes, including your preferred colour, hardware and chosen material. If you would like an accurate quote, contact the team at Majestic Designs.

      Will my stable doors reduce exterior noise?

      If you live in an area with high amounts of foot traffic or road-noise, refurbishing your windows and doors can dramatically lower exterior sound and transform your property into a tranquil oasis.
      Your stable doors will be engineered with your choice of composite materials or uPVC and will feature innovative weatherproof seals. Whatever material you choose will insulate your property from the effects of any adverse weather, as well as any noise pollution.

      How secure are stable doors?

      Retaining high levels of security when it comes to private properties is of the utmost priority for the modern homeowner. As a result, Majestic Designs engineers our range of uPVC and composite doors with safety in mind.

      Our stable doors are engineered with secure multi-point locking mechanisms and strong, durable materials. You can rest assured your stable doors will keep your property as safe and secure as possible.

      Do my stable doors have to be white?

      It’s not hard to see why white is one of the most popular colours here at Majestic Designs – elegant and timeless, the colour white suits both traditional and modern properties alike regardless of aesthetic or age. Contrary to popular belief however, your stable doors do not have to be white, regardless of whether they are engineered from uPVC or composite materials.

      At Majestic Designs, we always strive to meet the expectations of our customers. We offer a variety of different styles and colours across our range of stable doors. For a bright aesthetic reminiscent of English holidays in the Devonian countryside, you might opt for a bold Chartwell Green or stoic Irish Oak. For a modern flourish, you might go with the classic White Woodgrain or Cream, but for something a little more adventurous you might choose French Grey or even Black.

      At the end of the day, the style and colour you choose for your bespoke stable door will depend entirely on your own personal tastes and the current (or desired) aesthetics of your home.

      Can I install matching uPVC windows?

      If you decide to install a new uPVC stable door, you might like to consider refurbishing the windows and doors throughout the rest of your home.

Delivering innovative dual-opening technology to contemporary and traditional properties alike, tilt and turn windows can be engineered using your original feature window or from scratch using modern, double glazed glass.

      Unique and visually contemporary, Tilt and turn windows are ideal for maximising airflow within your property. Perhaps most pertinent, homeowners can keep their original feature window while still retaining optimal levels of energy efficiency.

      Sash windows

      Bay windows

      Bow windows

      Also known as a compass style window, bow windows are available as an alternative to traditional bay windows. Sleek in style and shape, elegant bow windows effortlessly complement both contemporary and traditional properties alike regardless of aesthetic or age.

      Casement windows

      Traditional casement windows are an enduring choice on the market for homeowners across the UK. Delivering optimal energy-efficiency ratings and security as well as improved airflow, casement windows operate on your choice of a horizontal or vertical hinge and are a practical not to mention versatile style of window on the market. The continued popularity of casement windows is exemplified in their enduring nature with homeowners both here in the UK and abroad.

      Flush casement windows

      Flush casement windows are similar to traditional casement windows. However, as the name would suggest, flush casement windows sit ‘flush’ in the window frame. Flush casement windows can be installed within bow or bay windows, or separately as standalone windows. A popular choice on the market for homeowners across the UK, flush casement windows are classic but with a twist, giving your home a clean, contemporary flourish. Flush casement windows are suitable in both traditional and modern homes alike.
