Carriage house-style garage doors became popular over a hundred years ago when a carriage house represented affluence and wealth. If you had a horse and buggy of your own - and a place to store them - well, that was a sign of good times for you!
Today, this traditional and classy look has caught on once again. Carriage house-style garage doors are popping up all around the country on all sorts of homes, from contemporary ranches to large luxury-style homes.
The good news is that you do not have to manually open these garage doors as homeowners did the first time they were popular. Most carriage doors are made as sectional doors that automatically lift and close vertically. If you are thinking about adding this elegant garage door design to your home, you'll want to explore the style options available.
