How to Choose the Right Garage Door Colour for Your Home

Garage Door Colour Makes a Big Difference to Your Home

There are a all sorts of factors that help form the overall look and curb appeal of your home. The construction materials used and landscaping are big factors, but so is the use of colour. Even the smaller details such as window trim, exterior surfaces such as brick, vinyl or render can have an a big impact. However, the biggest consideration is almost always going to be your garage door colour.

Because it is one of the largest single features of a house, a garage door’s colour plays a vital part in how much or how little your home stands out in your street. It’s not just the decorative impact, the garage door’s colour can also affect your home’s overall value. And, the wider the door, the bigger the impact.

The Right Garage Door Colour

When you’re choosing a colour, there are a few things to bear in mind:

Details make a home. If you’re planning on painting your home or replacing your garage door, take some time to consider garage door colours. If you use is a neutral colour, such as beige or gray, a white door will give it a cleaner, brighter appearance. This is especially noticeable if your front door and trim are also white.

On the other hand, if your home is white, adding a bit of colour is a great way to brighten up the home while still keeping it simple. In both of these cases, the key is to create contrast.

If you don’t necessarily want to draw attention to your garage door, you can also match it to the colour of your house. Again, this seems like a simple thing, but it really does make a difference.
