What if we told you there was an easy and affordable way to enhance your home’s facade and boost it’s resale value? Good news – there is! A new garage door is one of the best ways to boost curb appeal and see a return on investment. Take inspiration from some of these creative ideas to upgrade your garage door and add instant beauty to any home.
New Garage Door Not In The Budget?
If replacing your garage door isn’t in your budget, try some easy ideas for upgrading your garage door in a weekend or less. Think a fresh coat of paint, new trim, easy to install hardware (magnetic hinges, anyone?) , and framing plants like a bougainvillea vine! A little can go a long way to boost your home’s curb appeal.
Upgrade Your Garage Door
Modern garage doors tend to complement the home and become a key part of the exterior design. The older, cookie-cutter designs of yesteryear paved the way for more ingenuity with the types of designs available for today’s garage doors. Draw inspiration from the following:
- Colour: Creative design puts heavy emphasis on unique colours. And that is because colour combinations can make or break a design. Think high contrast color combinations, such as a white home with a bright red or navy garage door or a gray home with a wooden garage door. The right colour combination can invoke emotion and leave a lasting memory.
- Window Placement: Say goodbye to the standard windows placed at the top of the garage door. The upgraded garage doors of today place windows on either side of the garage door. Adding a unique, eye catching design that consistently garners second glances from those passing by while still allowing natural light to come in.
- Glass Doors: Modern meets industrial with glass garage doors. Customizations are abundant with options for insulation, design patterns, and a range of colours to satisfy any taste. Plus, an aluminum frame encasing the glass provides safety and durability.
- Textured Garage Doors: Don’t be afraid of adding a little texture to your garage door. Think recessed or raised panels, crossbeam detailing, or louvered (shutter-style) garage doors.
Pro Tip! Not a fan of wooden doors but love the look? Garage doors can be made from durable and low-maintenance steel and finished in a warm walnut hue that adds a cozy vibe to the home’s exterior.
Other Garage Door Enhancements To Make
Just like your interior or landscape design, lighting can play a huge role in your home’s aesthetics. Hidden well lights beneath garage doors provide just enough light to highlight the doors at night without impeding cars entering and exiting the garage.
