Our Favorite 2023 Garage Door Makeovers

Dec 2023

Look back at some stunning and creative garage door makeovers from the past year.

A Blockbuster Barbie Renovation

It’s not every day you get request for bubblegum pink garage doors, so when designers for the “Barbie Dreamhouse Challenge” on HGTV came calling we answered with our Canyon Ridge Louver garage doors in none other than Barbie pink.

The blockbuster renovation of the iconic Mattel toy, Barbie Dreamhouse included a complete exterior makeover featuring lots of pink: pink doors, a pink flamingo water feature, and a giant monogrammed pink handle to “carry” Barbie’s house to any destination.

The garage doors are painted Sherwin Williams SW6309 “Charming Pink” in case you are thinking pink for your next project. Installed by AV Overhead Door

Making a Good First Impression

Melaine at @mysweetsavannah has made a lot of improvements to her lake house over the years including new windows, siding and landscaping. It was finally time to replace the fading wooden garage door with something worthy of making a first impression – our Canyon Ridge 4-Layer Carriage House door in black. 


The clean simple lines and frosted glass windows give a hint of modern to an otherwise traditional look, so it fits right in with this cozy lake house vibe. Installed by The Doorman Service Company Inc

Clear Visionaries

Whenever a garage door makeover features our Avante aluminum and glass garage door, it’s bound to get oooohs and ahhhs. These projects speak for themselves.

Designer Anthony Carrino @carrinoanthony chose an Avante Sleek for his “barn garage” workshop renovation in upstate New York. The doors have no center stile giving wide unobstructed views of the property. Installed by Aquarius Door

Our Modern Home After Front

The finishing touch on this @ourmodernhome’s exterior makeover, the clear glass Avante literally opens up the left side of the house making it feel less boxy and disconnected from the half. Installed by Monarch Door Company


Garage door windows add tons of natural light to the space making it much more pleasant inside. But when your garage is a home workshop as well as the set of your home improvement TV series, “Around the House,” light becomes even more critical.

This time the Avante does double duty. It’s functional and fashionable. Installed by Oregon City Garage Door

Which House Wore It Best?

Ever wonder what four different design teams would come up with for the exact same house? We found out when HGTV’s Rock the Block crew landed in Colorado to each give brand new mountain homes with a similar floor plan their own unique spin.

Each team selected a specific Clopay garage door for the exterior. Which one is your favorite?

A Memorable Modern Makeover

Garage Doors
For all the fans of midcentury and modern design who think there are no garage door options that fit your aesthetic, this makeover is for you. Clopay partnered with homeowners Nahyun and Joel, who are renovating the 1950s home they purchased in 2018. The couple replaced the windows and roof, painted the aluminum siding dark gray and added brass hardware accents. The transformation is remarkable.
