When people start planning home renovations for better curb appeal, their garage door doesn’t usually make it to the top of the list. When it comes to a fresh look, consider giving your garage door a makeover to give your home a brand-new look and feel.
Yes, Your Garage Door Is A Focal Point
Did you know, depending on where your garage door is located on your home, it can make up almost 30 percent of the exterior design? That’s a large percentage of what people see when they look at your home. In fact, it’s actually a focal point. Even if everything else looks great on the exterior of your home, a shabby garage door needing a fresh coat of paint creates a bad design element. Your garage door is the last thing you should ignore when considering a makeover for the exterior of your home.
Garage Door Update Options
You have two main options for your garage door to give your home a completely new look:
- A new paint job. Easy to do if you are not ready to take more extreme measures. This is also a great idea if your garage door is still in fairly good shape. Remember to stay away from colors that are too light or white because they tend show more damage than other colors. Look at colors that are in your current exterior color scheme.
- Get a whole new garage door. If your garage door has a lot of dings or damage, consider getting a new one installed. There are a lot of different designs to choose from as well as different color schemes. The trick is finding the right one to go with the existing exterior design while making everything look brand new. When looking at options, don't be afraid to shake things. This is a great opportunity to add a new design element to your home.
Make no mistake, your garage door is an important part of your home's overall design. It’s also an easy update or fix that can completely change the look of the exterior of your home and increase your curb appeal.
