Absolutely Gorgeous Detached Garage Designs
Plenty of modern-day garage upgrades do a good job recalling more traditional garage features. Here, the pretty wood door -- made to resemble closures on a barn or horse stable -- is actually a contemporary roll-up entry. Rich shake shingles set at an angle on the upper half of the garage and a pop-up window cupola also tie the structure to the home.
The garage can take up one-third of the average home's street-side facade, so even a small improvement makes a big impact. Install sconces, and you'll improve both the look and safety of this critical entry point.
