We know this is Apartment Therapy and although there is usually a large emphasis on the Apartment side of our name, we do have many home owners out there. So for those readers, we have a fun feature over at the Clopay Doors website that can help out when having to make a rather large purchase for your home-- garage doors. They can improve your home's curb appeal and value. We'll show you how to try out new doors out with just a few clicks, after the jump!

Clopay Door has a fun tool on their website that allows you to upload a photo of your home and then try on different doors in different styles. If the stock doors aren't to your liking you can create one all your own style! First you upload your picture and define where your door is in the photo (it's pink in the photo above). Next you tell the program your door dimensions.

The program allows you to chose all different aspects of your door. Colors, windows, hardware, number of panels... the works. This is a great tool if you found a door you like, but aren't a fan of a detail on it.

If you aren't in the mood for uploading your own photo you can take a gander at the gallery of the doors that other homes are sporting. The site has great photos and can yield great inspiration for your own home. There's also a rebate going on right now for double and single doors both!
