American Garage Door - Blog


It's pretty remarkable the amount of thought and planning that goes into designing - or remodeling - a home. But what we find perhaps most interesting is that garage doors are often left out in the dark during this planning phase. Most folks think there's very little they can do with their garage doors, except for, perhaps, paint them a certain color. But the reality is your garage door is rather versatile when it comes to design. Whether you're looking to capture a classic or modern look, a rustic feel or a contemporary touch, your garage door - as the biggest entryway to your home - will have a huge impact. As the leading garage door seller in Southeastern Louisiana, we here at American Garage Door have recently seen a new trend popping up in our local communities: the long-panel garage door design. Here's why this may be the right design for you:

What is the long-panel garage door design?

Most contractors and homeowners stick to a traditional garage door design, which is a short-panel design (think square stamps). The design works - it's functional, clean, and complimentary to most home styles. However, design trends virtually everywhere have begun to shift toward a more minimal approach, and wouldn't you believe that trend has made its way into garage doors! The long panel (or rectangular stamps) design is an aesthetic choice, but one that tends to offer a "less busy" look to your doors. While it can work for virtually every and any door out there, it is most effective on wider doors. It's the same approach as when you redesign your kitchen or bathroom with subway tiles. Subway tiles are larger in size, thus present fewer grids to a space. These fewer grids tend to make the room feel bigger and "less busy." That's exactly the same approach offered with long-panel garage doors.
