You’re searching everywhere for decorative garage door hardware kits to dress up your garage door so it looks like a set of carriage doors. Here’s a few examples of some hardware configurations to consider for your faux carriage door project.
There are countless configurations for a decorative garage door. The renderings below are a basic 4 carriage door setup. Essentially, when transforming a single garage door into a set, or pair, of carriage doors, it’s common to use 4 strap hinges and 2 handles. However, in some cases, just 2 handles are sufficient because of the design of the door or you want to use 3 pairs of strap hinges. (Sorry about the watermarks on the images, other online retailer’s like using my digital property on their sites.)
