Ideas for choosing a traditional garage door style

Traditionnal house with garage doors

When you renovate your home, you do not necessarily need to use modern designs. In fact, traditional, classic styles are still very popular.

If you want to give your newer home some classic elements or preserve the design of your older home, you should not forget to include a garage door in your plans.

Garage doors are an important part of your home’s appearance. Choosing a classic style, such as a carriage house door, does not mean sacrificing modern features. Today’s garage door manufacturers have modern doors that retain a classic appearance. These doors have weatherproofing capabilities and low-maintenance makeup, but they are faithful to traditional designs. This means that you can have the best of both worlds: a classic design and a state-of-the-art, long-lasting door.

How do you define a “traditional” or “classic” home design?

Homes that fall into the traditional or classic category often have design elements that were originally popular 40 or 50 years ago (or maybe even earlier). Many classic houses, though not all, are bungalows, single-story (ranch-style) homes, and 2-story cottage-style dwellings. These homes may have different elements that were added based on what was popular during the eras after they were built. Some newer homes have copied these styles of yesteryear to create a classic appearance.
