Yes, we certainly have Modern style garage doors! However, at Garaga we’ve chosen to use the term “Contemporary”.
In the world of architecture, the Modern and Contemporary styles have some differences, such as in the use of materials and construction methodologies. Modern homes tend to have a more balanced and structured look, while Contemporary homes often incorporate architecture with more artistic freedom. In the world of garage doors, we don't really differentiate between the two. Our garage door designs work equally well with Modern and Contemporary styles.

What does a Modern/Contemporary style house look like?
Its exterior architecture is sleek and uncluttered, without too many decorative elements, such as shutters or arches. The lines are square and simple with asymmetry in height and depth. Built without too many textured materials, their colours are more neutral like gray, black and white. With the insertion of wood in warm tones and large windows, the resulting look is stunning.

Garage door models for the Modern style
Garaga provides an extensive choice of garage door models that fit well with the Modern style. The most often used colours are Black and Charcoal. In some cases, Ice White and Moka Brown also work very well.
For a more minimalist style, go with a garage door with simple lines like these 5 designs:
To complement a simpler, sleeker house style, go with a more detailed garage door design, like these:
Some of our designs come in various constructions. Need the best insulation? Then choose the Standard + that has an R-16 insulation value. As for the Acadia 138, it has an R-12 level. These two constructions allow you to keep the heat in your garage during the winter while retaining cool air during hot summer days.
If your home doesn't have large windows, add windows to your garage door. This will bring natural light into the garage. Garaga has a wide range of window types to choose from. The best glass options to match this style are Clear and White Sandblasted. They are simple and do not add weight to the design. White Sandblasted glass allows for privacy from inside your garage, but does not rob you of outside light.
