Stable doors for country kitchens

11th September 2014 |

Stable doors

Black stable door with Georgian bars installed in Somerset country home

Nothing says a country kitchen more than a set of magnificent stable doors. A stable door is divided horizontally in a way that means the bottom half can be shut, whilst the top half can be opened. Both halves operate independently and can be locked together, functioning just like a standard door.

At Majestic Designs, we offer a variety of made-to-measure, bespoke uPVC and composite stable doors that can offer great ventilation, security and thermal efficiency for your home.

History of stable doors

Originally, the purpose of a stable door was to keep animals out of farmhouses, or to keep children inside, whilst improving ventilation by allowing light and air to filter through the open top. Dating from around the early seventeenth century, stable doors were particularly common in the Netherlands where they were known as a ‘Dutch door’. The technology soon spread to the United Kingdom and became a familiar feature in many countryside homes thanks to the flexibility of their opening options.

Great ventilation and security

Stable doors are perfect for improving ventilation in your home. Thanks to their innovative design, stable doors can open up your home to the outside, but still provide an effective barrier to the world: perfect if you have children or pets who you want to keep inside, while ventilating your property at the same time.

Bespoke design

All stable doors from Majestic are bespoke products and made-to-measure. Weather resistant and guaranteed to last for 10 years, our stable doors are low maintenance and long lasting. With low U-values, all our doors are brilliantly thermal efficient making them perfect for improving the energy efficiency of your home.
