Just like fashion trends change year to year, home design trends do the same. We know that curb appeal is the very first impression your home can make, and we want to make sure it’s a great one. Homeowners want to make a statement with their home, and a unique garage door is an integral piece of the puzzle!
Ready to upgrade your garage door and transform the curb appeal of your home? Below, we’re sharing a few of our favorite garage trends in 2021.
Plank doors with windows
This modern look combines wood planks with windows on the side for a beautiful design that instantly catches the eye. Pictured in this photo is a lighter tonewood, but dark wood would bring another layer of elegance. Another idea is to use vinyl plank for a less expensive option.
These carriage garage doors offer a farmhouse look in a fresh and modern way. This is a great option for a home that already has a traditional style but could use a little something extra to draw the eye. Pictured above are wood doors, but steel doors could be used with an overlay of composite material to reduce maintenance.
White is out and dark is in!
White or light garage doors are quite common, especially in new home developments. However, darker tones make your garage door a focal point of your home and can accentuate stone, adobe, and even siding. The windows at the top of the door allow in light without sacrificing privacy.
These glass-paneled garage doors complement a modernly designed home. The framing allows for consistency as well as stability in the design. You can find frosted glass, like above, or even clear glass if you want to expand your living space inside your garage.
Arched garage doors can give a home a French country curb appeal that homeowners love. The white panels give it a more polished feel, but you can also use wood paneling or paint your garage door a different color to accent your particular home’s exterior.
Steel garage doors were quite popular in 2020 and continue to be a crowd favorite in 2021. While steel doors are normally known for their durability and thermal functionality, this doesn’t mean they can’t also be stylish and pleasing to the eye.
