Carriage House Garage Doors with Windows and Accessories

You have selected the perfect carriage house door for your garage. You have selected the perfect siding choice for your garage. The perfect roofing has been installed. The perfect color has been chosen for the doors. But you still need something to make the doors ‘pop’. We can help!

Select decorative hardware to compliment your light fixtures, pass door hardware and any other architectural features on the garage. You can choose from many designs, colors, textures and finishes. You can add the old world charm associated with iron hardware and change the look of the garage doors from “blah to ahhhhhhh”. Perhaps your project would look great with clavos. Maybe a set of speak easy grilles would look nice on the windows. Or use a combination of hinges, handles, clavos and grilles.

Should the color be black, bronze, copper or nickel? Should the design be spear, spade, bean or fleur-de-lis? Should the material be iron or cast aluminum? There are many products to choose from. Pay special attention to the selection of your decorative hardware. As mentioned earlier it is important to be sure the hardware choice complements not only the garage door but the rest of your project. For example, the finish on the hardware might want to tie nicely with the lighting fixtures you may have selected.
