Explore Colorado’s alpine style

Endless wilderness, entrepreneurial cities, and Old-West spirit—Colorado is a state brimming with adventure. From towering Rocky Mountains and red rock formations to funky downtown districts and historic sites, the region offers a mix of natural wonders and contemporary energy.

Outdoorsmen, intellects, and hippies have all settled throughout Colorado, bringing a range of aesthetics and trends with them. Of course, their homes are just as distinct—especially the garage door styles they favor.

For this month’s Style by State feature, we got an inside perspective from our Denver and Colorado Springs sales departments about the latest garage door trends in the region.

How would you describe Colorado style?

Denver, CO: 

“I would say Denver has a great deal of contemporary houses right now. A lot of younger people are moving here, primarily because of the growing tech industry. But, there are also quite a few rustic homes, which the older generation tends to prefer.”

Colorado Springs, CO: 

“Country living, mountain cabins, and Southwest architecture are very popular in the Colorado Springs region. Our culture is quite centered around outdoor activities. With more than 250 days of sunshine per year, people love to hike, bike, ski, and spend time outside. At the same time, restaurants and downtown nightlife are very popular here as well.”

As urban centers like Denver grow, the city’s architecture and homes have modernized along with them. Still, that rugged Western style has a strong influence on the communities nearest to nature, especially in Colorado Springs.

Which garage door designs and products are most popular?

Denver, CO: 

“Definitely our Carriage House Garage Doors, because of their clean look and high insulation. We’re also installing a lot of Modern Glass Garage Doors, which provide a contemporary flair and a full view into the garage. Wood Garage Doors with Colonial raised panels are another timeless choice that offer rustic charm.”

Colorado Springs, CO: 

“Our Classic Steel Garage Doors with Sonoma panels are very popular, since they look great on Southwest architecture, cabins, and country ranches. Carriage House Garage Doors also adapt well to Craftsman-style homes.”

It’s not hard to see why Carriage House Doors appeal to so many Coloradans—city folk and nature lovers alike. Bringing natural charm with a modern touch, this door style comes in an array of colors, finishes, hardware, and technology features. Glass Doors undoubtedly appeal to the younger, trendier crowd, while Wood and Classic Steel align best with Western style.

Can you share a NationServe project that best showcases Colorado style, trends, and lifestyles?

Denver, CO:

“We installed three Wayne Dalton Modern Glass Garage Doors at a seven-million-dollar home—one of the most expensive houses in Denver. The doors opened up from the kitchen straight into the backyard pool. For a commercial project at an architecture firm, we also installed Wayne Dalton’s Aluminum Glass Doors as an entryway from their main office to their boardroom.”

How inventive and forward-thinking! A lot like the people of Colorado. Our NationServe specialists certainly brought ingenuity and resourcefulness to these projects, too.

Well, that’s a wrap on Denver and Colorado Springs style, set in the Wild-West state of Colorado. Stay tuned next month, as we continue to explore garage doors across America.
