Another great solution for increasing privacy is a side hinged garage doors. This type of door is designed with two separate openings that open outwards, meaning you only ever have to open one door to gain entry to your garage. Side hinged garage doors can be built to be hand-operated or fitted with electrical systems. Some manufacturers will offer extra design features, such as glazing and decorative finishes.

As you can imagine, side hinged doors are incredibly easy to operate even without the use of a remote control. Each of the two doors basically opens like a normal door, which makes them handy if you use your garage as a work space, gym or utility room. The typical cost of a new side hinged door minus the installation fees ranges from £1350 to £2450
