Garage doors in your living room?

all the rage
It might be a little too early in 2016 to pick out what the growing home design trends might be (even if Pinterest thinks otherwise). But one thing we’ve been seeing grow in popularity in the neighborhoods closer to downtown in Nashville: garage doors in non-garage places.

It’s not a brand-new trend — builders of industrial-leaning homes have made creative use of garage doors for a long while now. But we’re seeing big glass garage doors in the living areas of otherwise more traditional, or Craftsman-y or cottage-y or Victorian-style homes too.

Wanna check out the look in action and see what you think? Here are a few homes on the market in Nashville now that make creative use of a non-garage garage door:

Nashville, TN 37206
PRICE: $769,900

This huge, new East Nashville home (more than 2,850 square feet) beams Victorian style as you walk up, but check out the rendering above — glass garage-style doors in the living area will bring in tons of sunlight, and let you really make the partially covered deck part of your indoor living space.

Nashville, TN 37208
PRICE: $695,900

There’s a huge amount of outdoor living space in this brand new Germantown/Salemtown home, between its multiple porches and covered decks. Maybe the best touch: the glass garage doors opening to a covered rooftop deck from the third-floor game room. If you’re really serious about entertaining, this one might be all you.

PRICE: $419,900

Over in Salemtown, this 5-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath home has a few industrial touches — its overall shape, concrete floors, and those great frosted-glass garage doors in the main space. The interior brings in other design notes that are more sleek than rugged, too, with deep, dark cabinets and trim and bright, white stone countertops.

The Coffee Street property’s Salemtown sister has a lot of similarities — including the frosted-glass doors drenching the living area with light. It also has some cool features all its own, including a huge built-in bookshelf right off the kitchen and geometric backsplash tile that really makes the kitchen.
