What was once limited to chic bars and restaurants, this trend is slowly finding its way into our homes, barns, and cottages. With an attention-grabbing touch of flare, all-glass full-view garage doors match the indoors with the outdoors.     

If it looks familiar, it’s because you have probably seen full-glass garage doors:

· Separating a dining room from an outdoor patio

· Dividing a single room into two or combining two rooms into one for added space

· Being used to open up a room to the outdoors in the spring and summer

· Or to create a chic inside/outside space with something that was once a detached garage, a house pool or a shed

Have you ever seen a garage door that’s so small used in such an inventive way?

How this Project Came to Life?

“Our customers are a great couple who loves to receive family and friends and entertain. They love cooking big meals too. But they didn’t like at all that they had to walk with plates and covers and stuff from their big kitchen to their patio door, located in their dining room, and then on their deck.” – Amanda Roberts, designer

When looking for a way to divide their kitchen and three-seasons room, the customers wanted something a little cooky that could still be used to pass food through to the next room easily.

“I knew very little about panoramic garage doors. Well, about garage doors overall, to be honest. But when I walked through the door at B&M Garage Door, I met a team of passionate people who took the time to listen to my weird ideas and transform them into technically smart, gorgeous reality.”

In fact, standard sizes go out the window when you buy a top of the line custom door. It might be common to hear that the size of a Single garage door is 9’x7’and a Double garage door is 16’x7’, but it will be built to match your specifications when you buy a custom door.

Garaga can help you create residential doors to match your home’s measurements anywherefrom 4 to 20 feet wide (down to the inch), and from 6 to 12 feet high (by 1- or 3-inch intervals).

The Nitty-Gritty Details!

For more detail on how you can recreate this look, here are the specifications of this door:

  • Total door dimensions : 48 X 56 inches
  • Type of door : a black frame California door
  • Window Specifications : Tempered glass fitted to both sides of the door
  • Type of Hardware : Dura+ and a torsion spring. You cannot see the torsion spring because it is hidden in a box above the door.
  • Galvanized tracks and hinges : Painted with black enamel paint for a clean and finished look.

Add a Motor to Your Tiny Garage Door!

Still need more convincing? This tiny garage door is even automated! By adding a LiftMaster 8500 Jackshaft opener next to the door, the customers can open the door without ever breaking a sweat.

Great Idea! The spring system and garage door opener were attractively concealed.

No matter how hard you look, though, you won’t find it! To keep the opener out of sight, the customers had it tucked away inside of their kitchen cabinets.

The dimensions of the door opener make it very concealable:

· Height: 16 ¼ inches

· Width: 6 inches

· Depth: 6.85 inches

As if that wasn’t enough, this door even comes equipped with MyQTM. MyQ is the newest technology that allows the door to be operated from anywhere with a phone, tablet, or computer.
