The Dutch door, hailing from the Netherlands in the 17th century, is a treasured innovation. Splitting the door slab in half creates unique functionality and versatility. A Dutch door lets natural light and fresh air fill your home while keeping small children and pets safely inside. Plus, Dutch doors add curb appeal and feel extra welcoming to any guest.
And while the Dutch door usually has a farmhouse feeling, our Chevron Dutch Door keeps the functionality you love while adding a modern, sleek update to the design. Now you can get a Dutch door that’s elevated and contemporary, with an elegant chevron motif and single glass panel. Our Dutch Doors are hand-made with solid wood and mortise-and-tenon joinery, which means they’re both beautiful and built to last. We use a solid White Oak threshold with a Silicone swiss sweep for a door system that's extremely water resistant and designed to prevent water damage over time. Just like our other entry doors, this door is available in your choice of twenty wood species. Choose from classic American hardwoods like Walnut or Cherry, or exotic, richly colored woods like Wenge or Padauk. We also offer an optional shelf, reinforced with corbels for a traditional touch. With multiple customizations available, we'll craft the Chevron Dutch Door that’s perfectly suited to your home.
We think this door is ideal for transitional, modern, contemporary, or Scandinavian minimalist styles. It works great as a side door or door to the backyard—but we love it as a front door for a statement-making look.
Skilled artisans make all our doors by hand onsite in Gig Harbor, a small seaport town on the Puget Sound in Washington State.
Our Dutch shelf comes with corbels for support and a classic silhouette. The Dutch shelf is tapered, as shown below, in order to allow for optimal door clearance. There are three Dutch shelf options: you can either opt for an interior shelf, an exterior shelf, or a double-sided shelf. Please note that shelf height will vary slightly depending on the hinge side and/or door handing. Hinge-side shelves will be slightly lower on the door slab than non-hinge side shelves. As shown in the image below, a double sided shelf will be slightly offset because of the nature of the Dutch cut in the door slab.
RealCraft offers twenty different wood species, ranging from traditional to exotic.
One of the reasons we love real wood so much is that it carries the character of its natural habitat. Wood species respond differently to humidity and temperature conditions. If you aren't sure which wood species to pick, call us at 1-800-694-5977.
If you want to see our wood in person before making a selection, you can order samples here. Check out our wood buying guide here.
When selecting a glass option for this door, keep in mind how private the space is. Choose the standard clear glass for full transparency or the etched option for a little more privacy.
We also offer custom glass options upon request.
Our standard entry hinges are 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" ball-bearing hinges available in:
If your door will be an outswing door--especially in coastal areas--we recommend stainless steel or brass hinges to prevent corrosion.
Our concealed hinges are available in multiple finishes and are a top-of-the-line, completely concealed hinge system with maintenance-free slide bearings. Choose this door hinge for a sleek, upscale finish. All Dutch doors require four hinges.
To determine door handing: Stand with your back to the jamb to be hinged. Then let your arm be the door and note whether the door swings to your right or your left. If it swings to your left, it is a left-handed door. If it swings to your right, it is a right-handed door.
To determine “inswing” or “outswing”: First, stand outside your house. Then, when your door opens does it open into the house? Then it is an inswing door. Does it open out from the house? Then it is an outswing door.
Note: Inswing doors are more typical for entry doors and our recommendation for Dutch doors.
Door jambs are made of the same wood as the door for a cohesive look no matter what wood you choose.
Jamb measurements: Door width plus 2 3/8" (plus another 1/2" with concealed hinges)
Minimum rough opening: Door width plus 2 3/4" (plus another 1/2" with concealed hinges)
Our exclusive white oak threshold offers superior water protection and wear resistance. We use a pure silicone, adjustable Swiss weather sweep set into the bottom of the door. Kerfed weatherstripping is standard. If you need an ADA threshold, call us.
Our doors are designed to be low maintenance. If you live in a place that has big temperature changes between seasons, you may need to tighten or lubricate your hinges from time to time. You should also adjust the door sweep to make sure it keeps the door sealed against the elements over time.
Our Osmo oil hardwax finishes may need a refresh every 1-3 years depending on their exposure to elements. Large temperature & humidity changes, direct exposure to sunlight, and seaside environments all can affect how often a door needs refreshing. Unlike plastic based varnishes, Our Osmo oil hardwax finishes don’t chip or flake off, so you don’t have to sand them to refinish. Simply clean the wood surface and reapply the finish, removing excess and rubbing in for best results.
If your door gets dirty (weather, pets, children, etc.) you can clean it with a gentle soap and water. If you have to clean the hinges for any reason, make sure they dry thoroughly.

Ordering a pre-hung door means the door jamb is included. Therefore measurements for pre-hung doors should take into account the overall Unit Measurements and the Minimum Rough Opening where it will be installed.
