Whether that’s beautiful stonework, outriggers, wood trim, or a unique color choice, our in-house garage door designers have an eye for the garage door styles that help your home stand out. So without further ado, here is an in-depth review of our favorites.
Classic, Carriage House Garage Door Styles
This style is universal, but it’s loved for a good reason. Most traditional homes look great with a carriage-style door, modeled after the horse-drawn carriage stables from colonial times. Often these doors are painted white with black hardware, but they can also look great with wood accents and cross-paneling to add some interest. Carriage-style doors are an attractive option to replace your builder-grade door. They add sophistication and offer a tasteful nod to tradition.
Rich, Wood-Toned Craftsman Doors
We often see this style in the Pacific Northwest with the popularity of craftsman and Northwest Lodge-inspired dwellings. Exposed wood beams, outriggers, and stonework typify this build, making it an exceptional candidate for a custom wood garage door. A craftsman-style house is a perfect opportunity to capture lovely wood grain textures, with any number of stain choices that show off the door’s natural textures and features.
Bold, Monochromatic Modern Doors
The modern garage door is all about making a statement. Glass windows combined with high-grade steel typify this style. Customers who request this style of door usually prefer a minimalistic, clean look, but stone or raw cedar accents can help warm up the stark, monochromatic feel of a bronze door. C.H.I., Wayne Dalton, and Amarr make handsomely engineered modern garage doors.
European Farmhouse-Style Garage Doors
Pulling in rustic elements is best achieved with a farmhouse door. Farmhouse-style garage doors are similar to the carriage style but with customizable features like cross-beam detailing and metal hardware accents. Paint it white or stick with the original wood grain for a bit of rustic texture. For a modern take on the farmhouse style, round the top of the bays for a European, old-world look.
