Choosing the colour of your garage door is one of the most important decision to make when browsing the various options. The garage door will have a huge impact on the aesthetic and increase the curb appeal of your home, so it is an important feature to think about.
Although many designs come down to personal preference and style, there are some things to keep in mind.
Here are our top tips on choosing the right garage door colour.
You will want the front door of your home to remain the focal point, so it’s important that your garage door does not clash or take anything away from this. For the same and seamless integration option, you may want to blend the garage door in by colour matching the window frames on the property.
Location plays a large part in the colour selection of a garage door. For example, if the property is located in a rural area and is a historic home, a wood grain garage door may be the way to go. This will highlight the rustic appeal of your home and will match the style better than some contemporary options.
Are you renovating the property to sell or looking to make it your own? Garage doors that are an unusual colour do not have the same curb appeal as a neutral or mono-toned door. If you’re going to be selling your home in the future, it is important to factor this into your decision making.
f you’re looking for something a bit different, but something moderately conservative, dark and soft greys are on trend and provides a chic and classy look. It provides the same brightness as a standard white door but feels softer with a nicer overall look.
However, if the colour of your home is beige, a black garage door would complement it well and provide a contemporary spin.
As always, styles are subjective, but it is always a good idea to seek a professionals opinion. With different materials available, such as GRP garage doors or steel, a professional will be able to provide their expertise based on previous projects they have worked on.
