Symmetrical, raised rectangular panels, give this option a clean, classic look. It is important not to mistake these a being too basic or boring as you can choose from colors or wood-look variations to match your home's exterior style. To customize the door, consider adding windows or decorative elements such as hinges.

Check out Barn or Carriage-House Garage Doors for a Rustic Look
If your seeking a new door for a Craftsman style or mission style home, the carriage look can carry the theme. As you check out your options note these may also be referred to as barn-style for their rustic appeal.  

Take a look at Contemporary Styles
