04 Aug Four Styles of Wooden Garage Doors to Consider
Garage doors are an important part of your home’s exterior aesthetic. If they’re in great shape and maintained, they’ll up your curb appeal. If your door happens to be showing its age, maybe it’s time to invest in a new one. Here are four styles of wooden garage doors to consider for your next home improvement project.
Barn-inspired wooden garage doors
The modern farmhouse trend continues to be all the rage. Homeowners are adding the look of sliding barn doors practically everywhere that you can think to put them. If you haven’t considered adding them to your home’s exterior, you should. Wooden garage door makers have created great looking options that mimic the look of the popular rustic barn door and they can be added to your existing space easily.
Mixed media doors
Gone are the days of choosing from solid panel doors made with common materials and no bells or whistles. Wooden garage door makers are upping their game and combining wooden panels with lovely glass windows to allow natural light to seep into your garage space. These doors also look incredible from the curb and are sure to make a big impact on your home value.
Traditional carriage-house style wooden garage doors
You can’t ever really go wrong with traditional design. These kinds of garage doors stand the test of time and look good paired with practically any kind of design aesthetic. Traditional carriage-house style doors typically have decorative handles near the center of the door alluding to manual operation. Most often, these are decorative only and the door still operates in a mechanical fashion.
Sleek and modern garage doors
Sleek and modern garage doors offer homeowners plenty of options to fit that particular design style. Door options include combinations of metal and glass, wood and glass, completely glass with metal frame, and others. If your home already has a modern look going for it, consider adding the icing on the cake with a sleek new garage door.
