Personal style is reflected in everything you do. The clothes you wear, the car you drive, the neighborhood you live in, the paint colors you choose, the food you eat – all of these help to define your style. Whether your style is subtle or more pronounced, it is there in every choice you make.
Your garage door style is a reflection of your home and your style. “Curb appeal” is an essential factor when buying or selling a home, but it is also something that many people who own a home put a good deal of effort towards. Many homeowners’ associations require specific styles of garage doors for homes, and for others, it is merely a matter of preference or budget.

A garage door makes a huge statement because it is one of the most significant visible elements of your home. You want to choose a garage door that compliments the overall style and aesthetic of your house. The wrong style of a garage door on your house will make a statement that you don’t want. Below is an overview of garage door styles and how they could enhance the appearance of your home.
Traditional Panel Doors
Traditional panel doors are the most common and the most economical choice for homeowners. These doors are constructed from aluminum, steel, and sometimes wood. Traditional panel doors come in a variety of colors and stain finishes to help coordinate with the colors of your home. These doors offer a classic style and are energy efficient. Traditional panel doors are an excellent choice for Georgia homes because they are easy to insulate, and they help keep the excessive summer heat out.
Carriage Style Doors
Carriage style doors have grown in popularity in the last two decades because they bring a certain charm and appeal to any home. Carriage style doors typically have decorative hardware to add attractive detailing. The centered door handles give the appearance that the doors will swing out when they actually open overhead, just like any other garage door does. Carriage style garage doors also come in a variety of colors and finishes. For more expensive homes, carriage doors are often given a wood grain finish to create a truly classic look. These doors are more costly than traditional panel doors due to the detail and design.
Contemporary Style Doors
Contemporary style garage doors are most notable for the statement that they make. These doors tend to feature a lot of glass and clean lines to complement more modern and contemporary homes. Most homeowners who go with contemporary style doors choose a frosted glass option. This option is generally chosen to add security and privacy to what is inside the garage.
**Please note that almost all garage door styles can have windows added. Adding windows along the top panel can dramatically change the appearance of your home. Windows allow light to filter inside the garage while adding style outside.
