Want to improve the look of the outside of your house? Think about getting modern garage doors. This feature may make up as much as a third of your home’s front façade, so replacing a plain door with one with more personality will significantly influence the home’s appearance and ambiance. There are many different styles, materials, and colors of these. When choosing a new door for your house, think about how it was built.
Traditional homes often include carriage-style shutters, which mimic the doors of horse-drawn carriage houses. Doors made of aluminum and glass are stylish for a modern home. If you don’t have the money to replace your entrance shutter, try one of our easy ideas for making it look better in a weekend or less. A simple door may be easily customized with new paint and hardware.
1. Double Bay Beauty
Double-bay doors in the Craftsman style complement this sophisticated and attractive residence. Simple molding on the gates adds just the right amount of texture, and glass panels at the top let light into the garage. When it gets dark, three gooseneck sconces light up the outside of the gates and make them stand out.
2. High-Contrast Color Combo
Dark grey and natural wood are great choices for any design because they look great together. Here, the dark outside of the house draws attention to the warm wood of modern garage doors and porch columns.
3. Mediterranean Beauty
This Mediterranean-style house has three garages that occupy much of the outside space. Trellises frame the wooden gates with beautiful bougainvillea on them. This draws attention to the beautiful details on the doors.
4. Bold in Black
This modern entrance shutter has a unique look thanks to four windows on one side. These windows let in natural light and add to the door’s style. The front entrance, modern garage doors, and window trim should all be painted in a daring shade of black for an appearance that can’t be missed.
5. Warm Wood Finish
Visitors to this contemporary mountain hideaway will first notice the wooden entrance and other external woodwork. The gates are made of steel, which is strong and low maintenance. They have a warm walnut color that adds to the cozy look of the outside of the house.
6. Modern Meets Industrial
The dark outside of this house looks great next to the glass and metal modern garage doors, which have an industrial look. The look as a whole is modern and warm without being too stark or intimidating.
7. Better in Blue
These modern garage doors look and feel like wood but are made of materials that don’t rot, warp, or crack when wet. The doors, like genuine wood, may be stained or painted to fit any style. Here, the details of the doors stand out against the neutral siding because of the bright blue color.
8. Best of Both Worlds
This freestanding garage in a forest green color has gates designed in the Craftsman style and are energy efficient. The gates include an insulated steel foundation and fake wood composite coating, giving the outside of this construction a rich, warm, and beautiful appearance.
9. Pattern Play
On the front of this lovely Dutch Colonial house, barn-style doors offer an eye-catching display. The unique pattern adds a lot of visual interest, while the white and soft grey colors keep with the home’s neutral style.
10. Jewel of the Block
Garage gates made of warm wood provide a beautiful aesthetic contrast to a house made largely of glass and steel. The good lights under the gates give off just enough light at night to show where the doors are without making it hard for cars to get in and also out of the garage.
11. Double Glass Doors
Get a pair of sleek, modern garage doors to make your house look better from the street. Straight lines on the gates give the outside a modern look, and panels that look like windows make the look even better.
12. Luxurious Mix + Match
Mixing textures work best when the different materials go well together. This cabin has a lot of wood details, but the stone siding breaks up the look. The rustic look is completed on the ground level by three warm honey-arched modern garage doors and maybe a matching side door.
13. Glass Panel Accents
This warehouse shutter sticks out with a brick exterior due to its deep black color. Six glass panels give the traditional door a more modern look. They also add a touch of personality and make the whole thing look better.
14. Sturdy Steel
This detached garage has sturdy white doors that look like the elegant wood designs on carriage house doors. Their classic style adds to the beauty of the building’s architecture.
15. Clean Lines
A modern-looking house should have a modern-looking warehouse shutter, too. For a subtle but sophisticated design, this home has a black metal door featuring frosted acrylic inserts, accentuating the house’s crisp, clean lines.
16. Durable Door
This garage is slate blue and white, with a beautiful mahogany door made of insulated steel. The garage’s interior is strong enough to be used as a living space or to park cars.
17. Tons of Texture
The style of this beautiful contemporary house lets these shine brightly. Doors on both sides of the house must match recessed panels, creating a textural contrast that complements the many architectural flourishes on the front façade.
18. Privacy, Please
The outside lighting under the soffit of this warehouse gives it a warm, inviting glow. The frosted glass allows in some sunlight but not too much; at night, it blends in with the rest of the house’s black grid windows.
19. Rich With Warmth
Attention all fans of the farmhouse style! This garage door has a rustic-chic look. The carriage-style door has stylish cross-beam details and a dark brown color contrasting with the brilliant white exterior.
20. Enhance With Color
A standard garage door is so old. Both doors are a bright shade of red that stands out. Simple black handles give the traditional design of the outside a sleek, industrial touch.
21. Better by the Beach
This luxurious beach house’s shutters or shutter-style garage doors give it a beachy feel. During the day, you can open the doors to let in the fresh air and natural light. At night, you can close them for privacy and safety.
