Carriage style garage doors are never out of fashion. Just staring at it will gave you some feelings. The good old days, the romantic times. That kind of feeling is what I had whenever I see it. I guess I find it less accurate if we called the carriage style garage doors are traditional, I believe it is rather has a classic performance. The trademark of the doors are the glass boxes on the upper part complete with the panel that cross the doors and the long exposed hinge on each side of the door. The design are very suitable with a country house or a farmhouse designs. But beleive me it will also look formidable in a modern house.
Eventhough the carriage style garage doors looks classic doesn’t mean that it can not equiped with a modern technology. Because I still remember how I amaze looking at an automatic doors that has an carriage style. It open from the bottom although at the fron you could see that there are two door handle. It turns out that the handles are just for camouflage. The common carriage style garage doors are covered with white paint, but quite often it has a natural wooden color. But it doesn’t mean that other colors are forbidden. You could simply chose whatever you wanted to cover the door color.

About the trademark glass box that the carriage style garage doors has, I think it is also a brilliant function. It doesn’t just make it look better. But on the inside the garage will never dark. And when the night comes the lights form the inside will shine through. So, instead of just decorations that had a nice impression the glass box also has a in and out funntion regarding lights. Moreover I believe that this style is one of the best door style that we had untill today.
