Choosing Garage Door Colors

Comments : Off

Garage doors take up such a large space of your home, so the color you choose for them is extremely important. No matter if you have a single car garage, double garage door, or if your home has a three-car garage, you’ll want to select a color that will complement your home and improve it’s curb appeal. Below we will offer some of our favorite tips for selecting your garage door color. 

Tip #1: Consider Your Home’s Main Color

Most home colors are neutral, so your garage door provides a place for you to add a pop of color to your home, or expand the look of your home by selecting the same color as your home. Essentially, if you want to make your property appear larger, we recommend choosing a garage door color that matches your home so that the garage doors blend in. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a pop of color, consider adding a contrasting, darker color. 

Tip #2: Consider Your Home’s Trim

For a uniform look, consider painting your garage doors to match your home’s trim. Homes will typically either have a dark trim color like greys, browns or blacks, or on the other end of the spectrum, they will have lighter trim colors like whites and creams. Matching garage door colors to your home’s trim color is becoming increasingly popular, as it gives your home a uniform and consistent look. 

Tip #3: Stick to One Shade

If you have a homeowner’s association, this will not even be a choice for your home, but either way, we recommend selecting one color for your garage doors. In other words, don’t choose one color for each garage door, rather select a color that you will apply to all your garage doors. Your home can look unfinished or even a little bizarre with different colored garage doors. 

Tip #4: Follow Your Neighborhood’s Style

Like we mentioned above, if your neighborhood has a homeowner’s association, you will be limited on the colors you can select for your garage doors. If you don’t have a homeowner’s association however, it’s still a good rule of thumb to stick to the overall style of your neighborhood. Not only will this prevent your home from standing out in a potentially negative way, but it will also prevent any backlash from your neighbors if they don’t approve of your color choice. 

Tip #5: Consider Your Home’s Construction

A family with a red brick home will most likely have a different colored garage door than a family with a home that has white-vinyl siding. Your home’s construction is an important determining factor when selecting a color for your garage door. For example, if you live in a wood-sided home, you should consider choosing a warm or earth-toned color to complement the natural element the wood brings to your curb appeal.
