Garage doors - white or dark, with or without windows?

We’re updating our kitchen to modern european design, our deck faces a lake and we’ve been striving for a contemporary look.

The siding is Benjamin Moore rockport gray (HC105). The roof color must stay as is due to HOA requirements. The deck flooring and railing are walnut brown.

Here’s a photo of our house as is. The next two photos show a mockup with the new front door we’re considering, one with a white garage door and one with a dark garage door with windows.

We like the glass-panel front door style but are very confused about what to do for the garage.

If we choose dark garage doors, should they be the same color as the front door, or darker or lighter?

Thank you in advance for your thoughts!
