4 Garage Door Trends for 2017
Gone are the days of the plain white garage door. With so many design options to choose from, homeowners these days are opting for doors with color, style, and unique applications. Check out our list for this year’s top trends.
1. Flawless Faux Wood Doors
People everywhere love the timeless look of a wood door. They love it even more when they can get the look of a wood door with the durability of steel. Faux wood doors, such as the Wayne Dalton Designer Fiberglass model 9800, or the Wayne Dalton Classic Steel models 8300 and 8500, are easy to maintain and come in a range of natural wood colors. From a rugged cottage to an upscale Victorian home, wooden garage doors look absolutely stunning on almost any kind of home.
2. Classy Carriage House Steel Doors
If these garage doors look like they swing out instead of up, we’re here to assure you that these are real, normal-operating, up-and-down doors. Carriage house steel doors have become increasingly popular and are one of the top garage door styles discussed on the internet. A wide selection of colors and styles allow you to match this door with your home’s trim colors and overall style.
3. Winning Windows
Let the sunshine in! Windows brighten the garage and glisten on your home. While many homeowners choose to include windows at the top of their garage door, window options don’t have to end there. On Colonial, Ranch, and Contemporary door designs, windows can be arranged vertically or horizontally and can be installed on up to two rows of panels on the garage door. One of our door series, the Contemporary Aluminum door, is all windows. Garage doors with windows are gaining popularity for their chic, modern look. NationServe offers a number of glass colors, tints, and opacities to add a touch of color to your home or provide an extra layer of privacy.
4. Clever Custom Applications
Homeowners and businesses alike are getting creative with their use of the garage door. In fact, the garage door does not need to be on a garage at all! Replace full view windows with a beautiful contemporary Wayne Dalton Aluminum door model 8800, and get the functionality of a garage door with the appearance of windows. This application is perfect for cottages, sunrooms, or homes with a patio. Embrace the outdoors and let the fresh air in.
