Modern Garage Door Styles

Clean lines and classic functional details are the hallmark of several Clopay® garage door styles, making them well suited for the modern home. Designs are available in a variety of materials including aluminum and glass, steel and wood.

Whether your home is mid-century modern, contemporary, or craftsman, modern garage door styles can complement your home's aesthetic while simultaneously elevating your curb appeal. At Clopay®, our collection of modern garage doors allows you to find a design that speaks to you. 

What Is a Modern-Style Garage Door?

Modern or contemporary garage doors use clean lines and simple details, providing a contrast to more traditional designs that feature layered panels, grooves or decorative hardware. Modern doors often use flush panel designs and subtle colors that blend well with contemporary homes.

Another feature that's common with contemporary garage doors is windows. While there are window-free options that are still modern, many of these doors use glass panes to elevate the clean look and add an element of light filtering to a garage. For homes that use windows as a bold design element, windowed garage doors can create an excellent complement.
