Carriage-Style

Bringing the Old to the New

Carriage-style garage doors resemble the doors that you could find on carriage houses in the past. These doors typically swung outward and were allowed enough room for a horse-drawn carriage to enter. Today, that style of door has been popularized by modern technologies. Carriage-style garage doors feature all the beauties of older doors with the convenience of modern qualities. These types of doors can still open outward, but most are designed like typically sectional garage doors.

Common Carriage-Style Garage Door Characteristics

There are specific qualities that give carriage-style garage doors their standout style. These features pay homage to the original carriage house doors. The most standout features include visible hardware such as hinges and handles. Unlike today, these pieces of hardware once had functional uses. Modern carriage-style garage doors feature them as decorative pieces to achieve their barn-like design. However, some doors may use them functionally.

You can see the most notable carriage-style garage door characteristics below:

  • Natural wood finish
  • Crossbuck panels
  • Windows located at the top
  • Decorative hinges
  • Decorative handles
  • Wood or steel

Old Styles Paired With Modern Technologies

Even though carriage-style garage doors resemble older carriage house doors, they open like most other garage doors. Carriage-style doors can be built like sectional doors, with each panel attached by a set of hinges. This is the most common choice when it comes to the method of opening. However, modern carriage-style garage doors can still open outward if you so choose. They can also slide, fold, or tilt up. All of these garage door openers provide the convenience and modern features you need in a dated design.
