And while some basic elements such as door size will be set, there are many variables to consider as well. As you start your search, it is important to know just how many options you will have to evaluate. To make the selection process simpler, understand the most common style on the market. A few tips for choosing a new door:

Explore Raised-Panel Doors for a Traditional Look
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
If you are trying to complement your home's modern or Mid-Century look, consider adding a new garage door with elements of metal, glass and even wood. These materials come together to create a fresh, efficient design for your home’s exterior.
