Several decades later, carriage doors are now a beautiful door trend that incorporates history and design. Although modern carriage doors still keep the same classic design and construction techniques from the past, there are now much more sophisticated and customizable.
Nowadays, carriage doors can be constructed with several different wood species, construction techniques and mixed with other materials, such as glass, and steel. Carriage doors can even be automatized with the assistance of automatic garage door openers.
