I never knew these type of doors were called dutch doors but I like it! The only place I have ever seen these were on horse stables, so I assumed they were called stable door. Perhaps that is also true, but in the end it doesn’t really matter.
I always thought this type of door would be great as a back door. My kids are constantly running in and out, slamming the door each time the enter and each time they exit. It’s highly annoying and loud.
If I installed one of these doors it my eliminate some of the loud banging and perhaps the kids would just scream to each other over the lower door instead of running in and out to talk to each other and their friends.
Even if it doesn’t solve my problem, I think this would be a great addition to the home. It’s so classy and appealing. I also like the idea of opening just the top so fresh air can stream through the home.
This black dutch door is a great architectural element that will look great on any home or shed. Consider installing one on your home if you want to add a new look without changing too much.
