Panels come in horizontal, vertical and even chevron angles. Panel styles are available in Georgian, which are the raised square panels, Tudor and Winsor, which have sloping curved tops to each panel, and Stuart, which have horizontal panels, in Craftsman or Mission style.
An additional feature of steel doors comes from the fact you can have a wood façade exterior. Many manufactures produce steel carriage garage doors that closely mimic the look of genuine wooden carriage doors. A layer of Cedar, Redwood or Hemlock plywood veneer is placed on the exterior of the door giving it all the look of a wood door. However you will still be saddled with the higher maintenance cost and effort of standard wood doors.
As mentioned above, the amount of styles and designs of garage doors is enormous. There are garage doors that you can design yourself, those that are part of a series or style, and many more. For instance, a garage door that is done in the style of a carriage house or barn can add a quaint feeling to your home and can make your home seem more approachable. There are also doors that are designed to be cutting edge and avant garde with non traditional framing and windows. You may also want to consider gallery options that offer exquisite doors that look like they could have come right off the showroom floor.
If you have the extra space and do not mind going out into the weather to get to the house choose a detached garage. The extra space between the house and garage can be used for a patio or even a kitchen garden. From the garage to the home you could also build a nice aesthetically walkway. You will also need to decide if you want a one or two car garage and if you need extra room for storage. If you choose a simple one-car garage, a door company states that you will need a basic space of 12 feet by 24 feet. If you choose a two-car garage you will need to add another 9 feet by 18 feet of space for that extra car. You will need this much space so you can open the doors without scratching or damaging the car doors.
