Ductch and Clipped Corner Doors
Dutch doors are divided horizontally into two components, allowing you to open the bottom
and top portions of the door independently of each other. Dutch doors can keep children and pets safely
enclosed while light and air circulate. Dutch doors add a colonial New England charm. Clipped corner doors
are designed to fit under a stairwell, attic space, or room with slanted ceilings. They are also used in many
historic applications.
