What do you think of when you think about a carriage house? Many people will think about a beautiful manor house or elegant mansion from days long past where the carriage would be kept before going out for a trip to or through town. It makes people think of the countryside, and it evokes images of beauty and class. These types of doors were popular in the 50s and 60s, as well, and for some people, carriage house doors make them think of this era.
These types of doors have become popular once again, and they could be a great way to provide your garage with a bit of extra character and charm. Today, you do not need to have a manor house or a house from the 60s to have one of these lovely doors for your garage. In fact, many manufacturers as Garaga making metal garage doors are making these types of doors. They are just as stunning as the doors of the past, and even though they can have the appearance of wood, there is virtually no maintenance.
Garaga currently has seven different door models in the carriage house style, so if this is the type of door you want for your garage, you have some great choices available. Find the one that works with your style of home.
What Homes Look Great With a Carriage Style Door?
You will find that many different types of homes will work well for this style of garage door. Those who have “classically” styled homes would find them to be a good fit. If you have traditional architectural elements, such as lattice windows or dormer windows, even if you have a new home, this style could be nice.
