A Custom Wood Door from 17th Century Design
The Dutch Door originated in the Netherlands during the 17th century. Before the invention of electricity, a dutch door served as a way to let air and light into the home while keeping children inside and animals out. When the European-American colonies were founded, most of the population lived on farms where animals roamed freely (barbed wire had yet to be invented). To keep farm animals out, while still being able to greet visitors, Dutch-style doors became a hot commodity. These doors persisted until the Industrial Revolution brought a new way of living.
