Choose a New Garage Door that Complements Your Home

Choose from Options Such as a Modern Full-View Glass Garage Door Look to a Faux Wood Garage Door Design

There is no reason why you should have a boring garage door when you have the option of having one that will add more curb appeal and have everyone in the neighborhood noticing as they drive by. Yes, everyone does notice garage doors, especially since they take up approximately twenty-five percent of the front of your house.

There are several different styles that you can choose from when you are picking out a new garage door. Here’s a quick overview of a few different styles we have available:

  • Flush Panels: A door with flush panels is basic looking and the panels are flat with some light texturing brushed on.
  • Raised Panels: Doors with raised panels are a little more decorative and the panel sections are raised. Every panel has a detailed border and these doors have a very classic look. You can choose between long raised panels and shorter raised panels, depending on which one you like better.
  • Carriage House: If you absolutely love the country aesthetic, then we recommend that you consider the carriage house panel door, because these doors look like real carriage house doors. These doors are filled with details so that they look as real as possible.

Choosing the Style for Your Garage Doors

Of course, whatever design you choose should complement the style of your home. Carriage doors will look wonderful with colonial houses, while raised panel doors work well with ranch style homes. Flat panels generally work with any style of home if you’re looking for a minimalist appearance.

Garage Door Color

The color of your garage door should also to be chosen to match or complement the color of your home. Most people will choose the same color as the siding on their house, but that will make the door blend in too much with the rest of the house. Choose an accent color if you want the doors to really pop.

Garage Door Features

Windows are another feature that you can choose for your garage door. Windows will let natural light into the garage and they can add architectural details too. You will be able to choose the shape and style of the windows as well as where they will be placed on the door. Windows placed in the top panel will give you light plus the privacy that you may desire. Windows that are placed in the middle of the door will allow you and others to look through the windows of the door at any time.

Remember that your garage door is supposed to complement the rest of your home, so you will not want to choose a door that is the total opposite of the rest of your house. We can answer any questions that you may have as you are choosing a door, the features you need, and the best color options to complement your home.
