8 Modern Garage Door Trends

A modern garage door lends your home spectacular curb appeal, which boosts your house’s overall appearance and can increase your property value. You can choose from a range of materials, colors and accessories if you’re looking to upgrade your home exterior — the first step is to discover all your options.

Garage Door Style Ideas for a Contemporary Look

Explore these trendy ideas for a garage door that will give your home a modern pop without going out of style:

1. Glass Garage Doors

For a chic option that provides plenty of sunlight and lets you see the outside world, choose glass garage doors. Clopay® carries AVANTE® glass and aluminum garage doors if you desire a streamlined appearance. Insulated door panels let you enjoy full-view glass without worrying about your heating and air leaking out of your home.

2. Wooden or Faux Wood Garage Doors

Doors from the CLASSIC™ WOODRESERVE® WOOD and LIMITED EDITION series can be stained or painted to complement your exterior. Want a wood look without the maintenance? Invest in faux wood garage doors from the CANYON RIDGE® or GALLERY® series for a solution as high-quality as the real thing.

3. Carriage-House Doors

COACHMAN® garage doors offer a traditional carriage-house style with a modern twist. These swing-out doors look like wood but consist of durable steel layers for enhanced longevity.

4. Barn Doors

The barn door trend lets you achieve a rustic aesthetic with the sleek functionality of a modern garage door. Explore options from the AMARR® CLASSICA® line.

5. Plank-Style Garage Doors

Plank-style doors are one of many wood or faux wood design types you can choose for a home upgrade. Explore the CANYON RIDGE® MODERN line for various plank styles.

6. Aluminum Door

Aluminum models offer low maintenance for beautiful doors that provide a great return on investment. Pinnacle doors from Martin Door display a carriage-house style consisting of aluminum.

7. Windows and Other Hardware

Select windows, metal lift handles and other decorative hardware options to make your door uniquely yours. Obscure glass windows let in sunlight while preserving your privacy.

8. Colors

You’re no longer limited to the same traditional garage door colors — try daring hues like black, burgundy, forest green or blue. Our doors come in a range of colors to suit the modern homeowner.

The Latest in Garage Door Trends. Does Any of It Matter?

Sometimes, keeping up with the “trends” is simply a waste of time. Trendy clothes, hair, and makeup designs change with the seasons, leaving trend-followers routinely dropping cash on the new and the flashy. When it comes to garage doors, however, there’s something else going on.

Should you bother keeping up with the trends? Do any of them even matter?

Simply Cosmetic?

Naturally, there will always be cosmetic trends when it comes to garage doors. Some of the latest cosmetic trends include:

  • using trellises to create “flower frames” 
  • creating a two-tone color effect with drastic paint shades
  • including extra or larger windows to encourage a specific amount of natural light
  • enhancing natural architectural beauty by installing well lights to light up your door at night

But not every garage door trend is merely cosmetic. Some of the latest developments point much more toward improvement and efficiency.

Better All the Time

The latest trends in garage doors prove that the industry is getting better all the time. For example, newer and more well-insulated doors are helping to increase energy efficiency. 

Many garage doors now incorporate materials with good insulative properties. As a result, you need less energy to keep the heat out in the summer and the cold out in the winter. 

New trends also include increased security measures and convenience via smart (Wi-Fi-linked) doors. 

What Really Matters

When it comes to keeping up with the latest in garage doors, cosmetic trends should be a secondary concern to trends revolving around energy efficiency, convenience, and increased security measures. 

More important than all the latest trends will be how your door operates. Eye-catching designs and eco-friendly materials aside–the best garage door is one that functions when and how it should.
