Solid Oak Cottage Doors hold a wealth of character for any home looking to achieve a country vibe.

Here at Blueprint Joinery, we are regularly adding new product ranges and styles to our website. As well as offering an extensive choice of staircase parts, internal and external balustrade and other joinery essentials for around the home and garden, we sell a range of Solid Oak Cottage Doors. These doors are created using the finest kiln-dried solid American white oak timber and hold a wealth of character for any home looking to achieve a country vibe.

We pride ourselves in manufacturing all our Solid Oak Cottage Doors from our workshop in Oswestry, Shropshire. Whether you are in the market for something traditional, contemporary, classic or modern, we have something to suit all interiors. Our range of Solid Oak Cottage Doors is the ideal solution for cottages, period properties and barn conversions. We also offer a made to measure service where we will make your doors to your specification. For more information regarding our made to measure service, please contact us today.

We offer three grades of timber - rustic grade, character grade and prime grade - and two types of profile - v-groove and bead and butt - across four different standard size doors:

  • 78" x 24" (1981mm x 610mm)
  • 78" x 27" (1981mm x 686mm)
  • 78" x 30" (1981mm x 762mm)
  • 78" x 33" (1981mm x 838mm)

Each standard size cottage door has its specific plank widths which are made up of the following components:

Door Size Plank Configurations
1981mm x 610mm Four planks all measuring 152mm
1981mm x 686mm Five planks all measuring 136mm
1981mm x 762mm Five planks all measuring 151mm
1981mm x 838mm Six planks all measuring 138mm.

The doors are constructed using 20mm vertical planks fixed to 20mm x 145mm horizontal ledges. To prevent twisting and bowing, small gaps are left between each vertical plank to allow the door planks to move freely.

All the timber we use is internal grade kiln-dried to a moisture content of between eight % and ten % which makes these products ideal for interior dwellings. It is important to remember that any wet trades must be thoroughly dried out before introducing the doors into the environment as untreated doors will absorb moisture rapidly.

As mentioned previously, there are three types of solid timber grade that we offer:

Please note: We do not allow any large holes through the timber. Also, please be aware that the timber we use is a natural product and grain and colour variation can occur in individual planks. However we do select timber as we manufacture the doors, so planks are colour matched as close as possible.

As well as three types of timber grade, we also offer two types of decorative profile that you can choose from:
