What is a stable door?

A stable door is a type of door that is divided into two parts horizontally, allowing the top half of the door to be opened while the bottom half remains closed. This type of door originated from stable buildings, where it was used to allow ventilation and light into the stable while keeping animals safely inside.

In modern times, stable doors have become popular for residential use, particularly in rural areas, as they offer similar benefits in terms of ventilation and light while maintaining security and privacy. They can be used as an exterior door or an interior door, and are often found in kitchens, laundry rooms, and other areas where a combination of privacy and ventilation is desired.

What are the benefits of stable doors in Cornwall?

There are several benefits to having a stable door for a house, including:


Stable doors allow for increased airflow and ventilation, which can be particularly beneficial in areas with hot or humid climates.

Natural light

The top half of the door can be opened to let in natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day.


The bottom half of the door can remain closed and locked, providing security and privacy while still allowing for ventilation and light.


Stable doors can be useful for households with children or pets, as the top half can be left open while the bottom half remains closed, preventing children or pets from escaping while still allowing them to enjoy the outdoors.


Stable doors can add a unique and charming touch to the exterior or interior of a house, particularly in rustic or country-style homes.

Overall, stable doors offer a functional and attractive alternative to traditional doors, providing a range of benefits to homeowners.
