Garage-door styles that work indoors
from The Wall Street Journal
Garage doors are leaving cars in the dust. The big, sturdy doors that once protected vehicles — and hid clutter — are moving beyond the garage. Designers and architects have brought the doors inside the home to serve as retractable room dividers, separating kitchens from patios or pools from gardens. They also are being used as exterior walls that allow a full-room, remote-control opening to fresh air. "It's about bringing the outdoors inside," says Vickie Lents of garage-door maker Entrematic, based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. They "allow a great deal of natural light to flood inside and they make a room seem bigger."
