Hidden Garage Doors Keep Showing Up in 2016. Or Do They?

Posted by Overhead Door of Sioux City and Yankton | Feb 4, 2016 4:57:10 PM

The garage door design world can't seem to get enough of hidden garage doors, and if our blog post data is any indication, neither can our readers. What is it about disguising your home's largest entry point that gets everyone so excited? Is it because it feels like a Bat Cave? Is it because it adds another element of awesome? Is it because it's possible?

While hidden garage doors haven't made their presence largely known in Sioux City and Yankton (which may be just the way they like it), there's no denying the trend that homeowners want garage doors to feel like they are a part of the house in a more cohesive way. Luckily, there's a place you can go to achieve that. And it starts right here.


Hide in plain sight.

Here is the first example of using wood in creative ways to incorporate a new garage door into the mix. This home, with its highly angular design and deep insets, sets its grains on edge (in a really cool way) to create deeper texture and interest.

Modern houses have all the fun. Look at this marvel. It looks cold and metallic, yet you just know there is some lovely warmth inside as soon as that garage door goes up. Wherever it is.

You clever farmhouse, you.

Finally! A house with hidden garage doors that isn't modern or contemporary. You can't see the garage doors? Neither did we at first glance, but there they are, complete with windows and board-and-batten siding.


Come in through the alcove.

This garage door isn't camouflaged in the ways the above doors have been, but it's the start of a new trend that we are totally on board with for two reasons. First, it allows a garage door to speak for itself in its own unique way. Second, it allows for privacy and seclusion without being over-the-top about it. Isn't this home a gorgeous departure from its neighbors? Who wouldn't want to live there?


Ending on a wood note.

Here's another wooden beauty, a trapezoidal masterpiece full of angles, perpendicular wood grains, and inset garage doors.

As much as we love this "disappearing garage door" trend, there's no hiding the fact that designing the perfect garage door for your home is easier than ever. If you haven't checked out our new DoorView Visualizer tool, now is a great time to do so. It's free, it's awesome, and it's door-opening.
