Window Boxes for the Win

Treat the windows on your garage just as you do those on your main house: make them pretty. Especially since the garage is often the first part of the house you see when you get home. Here, a window box garden brings a shot of summer color against this cedar-sided garage in Martha's Vineyard.

Transoms Do the Trick

Transom windows above a pair of garage doors glow from within at night and let in natural light by day. They also soften the street-facing garage, upping the house's curb appeal.

Craftsman Dormer

A dormer window on this garage lets in lots of natural light and ties the garage to the main house. A pair of steel garage doors textured to look like wood features transom-style windows along their tops to let in slivers of daylight while also interrupting the monotony of metal.

Say Yes to Glass

Don't settle for a dingy aluminum garage door that blocks the light. Get the easy access a door provides and the natural light a window brings by installing an aluminum frame door with glass panels. The durability of the door's aluminum frame allows the panels to be larger in size, flooding the space with sunshine.

Garage With a View

With guest quarters over this farmhouse-style garage, large windows give the occupants a view of the lush green courtyard between the garage and the main house.

Glazed Glass for Privacy

If your garage faces the street, its doors need to work with the rest of your house's face. A pair of industrial glass and metal garage doors match the windows on the front of this house and give the garage a lit-from-within look that's much livelier than blank metal doors. Glazed glass on the door panels keeps your possessions from being visible to passersby but is transparent enough to let in light.

Dormers Done Right

Dormer windows over a two-car garage let natural light into the space and tie the garage to the rest of the traditional-style home by repeating the window design used on the main house. And how cute is that cupola?

Glam Glass and Metal Door

A metal garage door with glass panels functions as a wall of windows as well as an entrance for this garage that's been converted into a living area. Lofted ceilings make the space feel roomy and airy.

Graphic Garage Window Style

Who says you can't put window treatments on interior garage windows? Not us. Even if you just use the space for cars, mopeds and kayaks, storage deserves to be stylish as well.
