Contemporary garage door styles are becoming more common on homes with traditional architecture and this is in keeping with the move to an overall minimalist design trend. Both homes pictured here are very traditional in materials and design but the neutral colour scheme and simple lines push them in a more contemporary direction. The addition of modern garage doors further underlines the contemporary style.
The windows in contemporary doors are the biggest difference from traditional doors. Large windows bring in natural light and create the illusion of more square footage. With the garage door taking up a major portion of these home’s frontage, the large windows help break up the space for a relaxed and sophisticated look. Five years ago, only homes with modern architecture had contemporary styled garage doors. Today, the lines between styles are becoming blurred. Both of these houses would look equally great with traditional or carriage-style garage doors. Homeowners now have more choices.
At TIMBER MART, we offer a variety of residential garage doors and can help you choose between different garage door styles to suit your home and budget.
