Are you loving the ALL-GLASS garage door trend? Have you been eyeing them on your favorite shows, patios, or Instagram posts?
We've all seen these eye-catching doors in trendy places, and now they’re making their way into homes, chic barn restorations, cottages, and more. The panoramic garage door adds a unique touch that’s sure to turn heads and creates the ideal versatility in indoor-outdoor living.

You’ll typically find the California full-glass garage door in spaces like:
· A dining room that extends onto a deck
· In a restaurant or event space where two rooms are divided and can be opened up for more room
· To allow a sunroom to open to the outdoors once the weather is temperate.

But, we’ll put money on the fact that most people have never seen something this creative with a miniature garage door!
What Brought This Project to Life?
“Our customers are a great couple who loves to receive family and friends and entertain. They love cooking big meals too. But they didn’t like at all that they had to walk with plates and covers and stuff from their big kitchen to their patio door, located in their dining room, and then on their deck.” – Patricia Johnson, designer
The clients wanted something outside of the box, a door that would separate their three-season room from the kitchen, and yet still allow them to pass food and other items through the two spaces.
“I knew very little about panoramic garage doors. Well, about garage doors overall, to be honest. But when I walked through the door at Car-Wal Garage Doors, I met a team of passionate people who took the time to listen to my weird ideas and transform them into technically smart, gorgeous reality.”
There‘s no “standard” garage door size if you’re buying a quality door. We all say that the size of a Single garage door is 9’x7’and a Double garage door is 16’x7’, which is usually pretty accurate, but every single door is made to the custom measurements of your space .
Let’s Get Technical!
Below are the details of the tiny garage door pictured above:
- Door dimensions : 48” x 56”
- Door Name : California , featuring the Black frame,
- Window : Clear tempered glass (both sides)
- Hardware type : Dura+ featuring a torsion spring that is conveniently hidden above the door in a wooden box, out of anyone’s sight.
- Galvanized hinges and tracks : featuring a black enamel paint finish to offer a more visually appealing look.
You Can Even Put an Opener On It!
Thanks to the LiftMaster 8500, a Jackshaft opener, you can even add a motor to your tiny garage door that can be installed beside it, such as in the cabinet as pictured here.
The Pro Corner : Notice how you can’t see the opener or the spring system without looking very closely.
You aren’t going to see it in the pictures, no matter how hard you look. Plus, the opener is in the cabinet, behind closed doors.
It’s super easy to hide this opener, which measures:
- 16.25 inches high
- 6 inches wide
- 6.85 inches deep
Innovative MyQTM technology adds to the features of this remote opener, allowing the door to be operated from a tablet, smartphone, or laptop, no matter where you are. It doesn’t get much better!
