I'm no expert but I think the door lining is the frame of the door that the hinge attaches to and is shaped to stop the door flush to the frame. A door casing is the decorative architrave that surrounds the door - at least that's what wikipedia said anyway. Hope this helps.

to me i'd say they are the same thing.....they are just alternative terms for a door frame.

in this country the terms door lining and door casing are really quite interchangeable. go to jewson's you will buy a door lining. the same thing in wickes and it's a door casing.

and strictly speaking the term the 'door frame' actually refers to the structural timber opening in studwork/brickwork that accepts the door lining/casing.

there is similar confusion as to what constitutes a door frame, door lining and door jamb! these days all seem to be quite interchangeable. even professional chippies and joiners don't seem to be able to agree on which is which!

in the US the door casing is the architrave which is perhaps the reason for the abiguity.

A door lining as it suggests is a lining of 3/4" timber with a plant on stop forming the rebate. A casing is the same thing but the rebate is machined out of a solid piece of 1 1/4" timber, forming the 1/2 inch rebate.Yes the side of the frame is called a jamb,but usually a door jamb is the side rail if you like of the door

I understand that a 'Door Lining' is made from something like 4x1 with a housing joint at the top; usually installed post brickwork completed. Door Jambs nailed on later.
A Door Casing is is much more substantial made from 4x2 or more likely 4x3 using mortise and tenon joints with Door Jambs rabited in. This would be built in as the brickwork is laid.
Or at least that is what the guy who I was apprenticed to taught me.
