Originally considered a more rustic design, modern carriage house garage doors showcase a shift toward a preferred minimalist garage door style. The elimination of decorative hardware, formerly a staple on a carriage house style door, turns a classic into modern. Modern carriage house doors are one of the most frequently selected styles.
These doors are designed after the structures that used to house horses and carriages back in the day. Original carriage house doors used to open like a regular swinging door which would require handles and hinges to allow the door to be manually opened. However, today’s technology allows homeowners to incorporate a time-honored design into their everyday lives with the convenience of an overhead door.
The modern carriage house door doesn’t stray too far from the beloved classic designs. It still features elements that are common with the rustic design, such as the saw cut down the middle of the door which creates the illusion of swing out doors that close perfectly in line. Additionally, the modern carriage house style also incorporates end stiles and bottom rails around the outside of the door design to help give the look of a door frame.
