Don’t you love those street-facing restaurants where they open up the entire front of the room to a summer breeze? Imagine being able to do the same at home. That’s what people are doing with the glass-panel Avante Collection garage doors from Clopay. It’s an actual garage door, but it can be customized to work with your living space. I love the idea of being able to “seamlessly merge indoor and outdoor living spaces,” as Clopay describes it. I also love that you can raise and lower the doors automatically — hey, they are garage doors, after all. I don’t know if we’ll actually try this at home, but I sure am thinking about it. Check out the Avante Collection at Clopaydoor.com. (Actually, they look pretty great on garages, too.) –Mary T.
