Choosing the perfect garage door for your home is a bit harder than it seems. You might ask yourself a ton of questions like:
- What color should it be?
- What design should I choose?
- Should my garage door match my front door?
After all, your garage door can take up as much as 40% of your home’s facade, so choosing the right design and color can make or break your entire home’s curb appeal. Thankfully, with the right advice and expert guidance, you can decide whether or not your garage door should match your front door.
If you want a classic look
For those who want a more subtle, classic look, matching your garage door to your front door is a great option. It helps create a seamless design that looks good on any home. In addition to the color of your garage door, you can also match different elements to your front door. Features like window style, hardware, and lighting can really help elevate the design of your garage door, so it still feels unique to you and your home.
If you want a bolder look
To boost your home’s overall look, you can opt for a garage door that stands apart from your front door — and stands out on your block. The best part? You can choose from tons of different design elements to enhance the look of your garage door, like:
- A bold color (that doesn’t match your front door — or any element on your home)
- A contrasting garage door
- An all-window garage door
- Added textures like panels, shutters, molding, and chevron patterns
- An all-wood garage door
- A mix-and-match style (like adding a contemporary garage door to a classic-style home)
Of course, choosing complementary designs and colors is still a great way to create cohesion in your home’s exterior design. If you want a more modern look that doesn’t fit the classic garage door mold, check out these 30+ unique garage door design ideas.
If you want a customized look
Whether you want a garage door match or an entirely unmatched look, you can still design one that’s perfectly unique to your home. With a customized garage door, you can choose from several different elements and features like:
- Garage door style
- Materials used (like steel, wood, wood composite, aluminum, fiberglass, or vinyl)
- Window options
- Color and finish
- Extra details (like decorative hardware, molding, framing, panels, and more!)
