Great Garage Window Ideas

Don’t overlook windows when designing a garage. Garage windows — an often-forgotten feature — can add major functionality and style to your space. If you use your garage for DIY projects or car maintenance, windows provide much-needed natural light and ventilation. Garage windows can also add character to your home and boost its curb appeal.

Garage door windows come in a variety of shapes and styles and can be tinted, frosted or etched for added privacy. Many garage doors feature a row of windows along the top edge to let in light while keeping cars and other belongings out of sight. For modern homes like the one pictured here, a vertical column of windows on one side of the garage door is a sleek, stylish choice.

For windows within the walls of your garage, consider coordinating with your home’s other windows to make the garage feel like a cohesive part of its design. Browse our gallery for more garage window ideas you’ll want to copy.
