Garage Doors Can Be Really Pretty
It’s all the rage, here in Australia, to do the double garage door thing…. one big, bland, rectangular door, smack bang in the middle of the front elevation of the home … so the more I see the ‘separate garage door’ arrangement, the more I love it to bits.
It’s so much more pleasing to the eye. Wouldn’t you agree?
It’s a quaint concept, the 2 separate door thing. It brings in a little bit of symmetry, which, really, we are all hardwired to be drawn to. It adds depth, creates interesting shadows and adds definition to an otherwise boring space.
What do you think?
Notice something else? They all feature the most beautiful lights. ‘House Jewellery’.
We generally don’t have the luxury of space to be able to position the garage off to the side, like this, or around the back of the home. It features in the front elevation of most of our homes and takes up the majority of the street elevation. The garage is most not even considered in the design of the home. It’s just a given … there will be a big blank box in the front elevation. I tried to hide mine, on the lowest level of the home, behind some pretty gates … so the gates were the feature, not the boring garage door.
I love the idea of a decorative pergola over a garage. Adds just that little bit more detail.
Love those brackets.
Pretty, pretty, pretty. What a gorgeous addition to a front elevation! Greenery, pops of flowering colour, window muntins, panelling, gorgeous lights and interesting door hardware. See how the doors are one piece? The hardware is not functional, merely decorative. Each door opens up, in one piece. I love this idea. They’ve really put some thought into their garage doors!
I haven’t met a ‘Crisp’ project that does not stop my heart. All those lovely textures. The stone is the perfect touch.
I could live in any/all of these.
Especially this little one.
