6 Garage Doors That Leave Us Inspired
We do a lot of garage door installations and garage door repairs here at Hill Country. We also take great pride in all of the great work that we do. Every once in a great while, there are garage doors that make us stop and get inspired by the work we do. These are doors that are especially well-crafted or beautifully colored or just plain bizarre. We love our work and we love to share our inspiration with you. That’s why we’ve built this list of six great garage doors that make us remember why we do what we do.
Ludington, MI – Windows in Color Garage Door
Typically, when people find a garage door in state of disrepair, they spruce it up with a fresh coat of paint. Not this Michigander, who instead put window frames on the front of the door.
2. Birmingham, UK – The Smithfield Garage Ltd Stone Garage Door
Located in the Digbeth region of Birmingham is this gorgeous stone garage dated from 1923. The garage itself is part of a block of buildings undergoing renovation. While it looks like it has seen better days, the architecture of the garage itself stands head and shoulders above many.
3. Adelaide, Australia – 3 2 1 Garage Door
The person that snapped this photo happened to stumble upon it during a walk one day. The bright colors and targets on the door make it stand out tremendously.
4. San Francisco, CA – Transforming Victorian Garage Door
This transforming garage in San Francisco was born out of necessity rather than novelty. Due to a lack of space in downtown, one neighborhood was forced to make space where there was little. They also had to maintain the neighborhood aesthetic as well. Because of this, they contact a local architect, who devised this ingenious method that meets both requirements.
5. Venice, Italy – Canal Garage Door
Did you think that garages were strictly for ground-based vehicles? Not so, as these beautiful Venetian garage doors prove. With a wrought iron gingerbread top and vibrant pine green decorating it, this door adds a unique accent to the canals of the Italian city.
6. LA Mesa, CA – Shiny Happy Garage Door
All this photographer needed to do was walk across the street for this photo. According to the annotation with this photo, this is just the normal garage door for his neighbors directly across from him. So simple, it puts a smile on our faces.
