dutch-doors-via-revivingcharm_com-4You would never know that it is officially Fall in Southern California. The temperatures are still sky high and our air conditioner is still getting good use. It’s days like this that make me realize how a charming Dutch Door can provide natural ventilation while having a portion of the door secured. And because of this design it is the perfect door to have if you own pets.

I’ve actually contemplated installing a Dutch Door on our seaside ranch home. Dutch Doors can be a versatile design element that can fit in with almost any architectural style. Plus, it is a door style that can be used as a front door or secondary door, off a mudroom or laundry room for example. While you browse the pictures in this post, don’t forget to also take notice of the door hardware where visible in the pictures. Below is one of my favorites.

    What great examples of doors and hardware. We have 2 dutch doors for just the reasons you’ve mentioned. The front of our house is where the breeze starts, before we put in the Dutch door we couldn’t fully take advantage of it…now we get great gross ventilation.
    Great post.

    Thank you for this post!! I’m forwarding this to my husband in hopes that he will see the inspiration in your dutch door images. I’ve been wanting a dutch door in our kitchen for quite some time!

      Hi Lisa.
      Sorry, I don’t have any resources. Contact door companies where you live and they should be able to help. Good luck!
