Carriage House Door

When you think about the carriage house style, you might immediately think of a classic era home filled with luxury and warmth. It’s a world where both craftmanship and countryside are common desires. It’s not hard to see why it’s a desirable style in any era.

If you have nostalgia, you are far from alone. Things like 50s and 60s country-style swing garage doors have been all the rage since around 2000. It’s a fantastic way to live an urban life while having an environment that feels more rural and older. This trend has led to manufacturers of metal garage doors bringing this style to the forefront. Many have adapted their metal doors to look as if they were made of wood, but without the disadvantages that wooden garage doors have, especially as relating to maintenance.

At Garaga, they have also broadened our line of carriage house style doors to 7 different door models. Before you decide which door is right for you, we’ll give you a bit of information on which doors fit what type of architecture as you consider your options.
