What Goes Around Comes Around
Fashion is not just about skirt lengths for women. It is also about having a beautiful new look for your home that you are proud to show everyone. Fashion in the form of different exterior colors and trim is one of the most obvious ways in which a home can have an easy makeover. The top garage styles of the year are doing just this. This can include replacing outdated or failing structures such as windows and doors with new units that make an entirely distinct statement.
It can also involve selecting a new style of the garage door. Every year, there are changes in the most popular types of garage doors. Here are a few of the currently most popular garage doors.
Some Things Never Change with Garage Styles
The now-traditional steel clad garage door remains highly popular as both a new and replacement installation option. Maintenance-free, durable, and fitting in well with most décor, this light color style is likely to be atop the list for a long time.
Your Carriage Awaits
One of the most popular styles of today is a definite throwback. While still functioning as a standard rollup door, many new installations feature the so-called carriage house look. This mimics old-fashioned barn type doors with faux hinges and center trim to simulate two doors that open outwards instead of one that opens upwards.
Knock On Wood
Installations with the enduring look of freshly-installed wooden doors are becoming a big seller. Thanks to vast improvements in the simulation of real wood, these doors now appear to be made out of fresh-sawn lumber even after years of service. Wood lookalikes can be paired with many other trends as well. A fresh wood look-alike with carriage door accents is an especially eye-catching option.
We’re For The Dark
While the traditional garage door has been bright white or other light colors for many years, there is a new fascination in garage styles this year with darker hues in garage doors. Given the growing demand for faux wood doors, these darker colors blend in well to create new look garage doors that greatly complement the also-growing trend towards stucco and other Spanish-style architectural creations.
Let The Sun Shine In
Conversely, windows are also returning to garage door design after many years of being sidelined. Not only do modern security glass windows open up the typically dark garage space but they can serve as cunning architectural accents to add panache to many otherwise ordinary units. So large has this trend gotten that it has finally gone all the way back to all-glass garage doors.
Although more of a business rather than residential concept, Space Age style brushed aluminum and glass is becoming one of the newest and fastest-growing of the popular styles.
