Garage Doors in the Kitchen

Wait... what? Garage doors in the what? It's true, folks. For those wanting to easily alternate between eating in a conditioned environment and eating al fresco, the simple choice just might be a garage door in this unlikely location. Just take a look at these four stylish examples and see what you think:

That first one up top is so appealing with its open garage door and all-around windows that the work space has invaded kitchen territory. Nice big work table there, isn't it?

Second is perhaps the best-known kitchen with a garage door: it's the Novogratz'! The third example shows just how great such a door could make indoor-outdoor living. And the fourth exemplifies how a large opening can really expand a small space.

What do you think? Would you like this unconventional door-type in your kitchen?
