By their very nature, carports are utilitarian. They are meant to get a job done, and they are excellent at doing that job – especially when you order a quality product from a trusted supplier like American Carports, Inc. With that said, you don’t have to think of your new carport as an eyesore on your property – not even close. With some thoughtful design, a carport can deliver visual appeal in addition to endless function.

Create Clean Lines
The presence of clean, straight lines is one element closely associated with modern design. If you’d like to give your carport a modern look, go for a shape that includes as many of these lines as possible. If you are picturing a carport as a building that has rolled eaves and a curved peak at the top of the roof, you should take a closer look at the options that are available from American Carports, Inc.
As a starting point, consider adding an A-Frame roof to your new carport, rather than a regular roof style. This will make the structure more angular and start it down the path toward a modern appearance. Also, you may want to upgrade your roof to a steeper pitch, which is another alternation that will take it in a modern direction.
Other Modern Elements
As you start to experiment with our Build & Price tool, you’ll see that there are few limits to what you can create for your new carport. And, by picking the right elements, you’ll come away with something that is as modern in appearance as it is functional. These are some design choices that can help you create a new look for your carport.
Did you know that carports don’t have to be open on all sides? A standard carport may have nothing more than a frame and a roof, but you aren’t limited to standard when you work with American Carports, Inc. It’s easy to add gable ends and full or partial sidewalls when you build with us.
Use trim to complete the look
To some people, a carport that has panels without trim will look unfinished. You can choose to select the option to have J-Trim added to both the sides and the ends of the structure. This will tidy up the look of the building and you’ll be able to select the color you desire for that trim. This gives you a chance to create a color contrast and bring the finished product closer to your vision.
Strategic color choices
Speaking of colors, the shades you pick will go a long way toward establishing the modern look you are seeking. While you’ll have to consider your own tastes in this process, shades that will likely fall into the modern category include white and black, grays, and blues. We also offer a wide range of other colors, like blues and greens, so you can pick the best colors to help your carport standout.
It’s the customization available at American Carports, Inc. that makes us the perfect place to style your next carport. You aren’t stuck with standard, prefab designs when you order from us, and you’ll find the design interface we offer intuitive and easy to use. Whether you are trying to pull off an uber-modern appearance or you just want something that looks nice on your property next to your other buildings, we make it easy.
Standing the Test of Time
When you buy a carport, you obviously want it to hold up to the elements and remain in good condition for years to come. Also, you want that carport to keep looking great for as long as possible, which is why it’s important to take styling into consideration. With American Carports, Inc., you can check off both of these boxes and get a structure that you’ll love to use and look at for the long run.
