Try These Garage Door Color Ideas to Boost Your Homes’ Style and Value

Adding a pop of color to your home’s trim and other exterior details can significantly alter the way your home looks. If you pick the right color, it can add to your home’s value, too. When it comes to painting your garage door, the key is to select the right color for your home’s style and for your neighborhood. And if you’re planning on selling your home, you’re probably going to want to take potential buyers’ tastes into consideration, as well.

Best Garage Door Color Ideas

Your garage door takes up a fair amount of space on your home, which means the color you select can have a big effect on the way your home and property looks. Arguably, the most popular and most common color for garage doors is white, and for good reason. As a neutral shade, white “goes with” any other color, and it also works well with pretty much any architectural design or style. White’s classic look also tends to have the broadest appeal for buyers, so it’s a good option if you plan on putting your home on the market anytime soon.

While white can be a good choice for a lot of homes and garages, sometimes it’s just too bold or stark for the look you’re going for. In those instances, a light tan or gray might be a better choice. Like white, tan and gray are both neutrals, which means they blend well with other colors and can be a great choice for a wide variety of home styles. Tan and pale gray can also be great choices for homes that feature a lot of natural stone, playing up the warmth of natural materials without detracting from their beauty.

Go for Drama

White and lighter colors may be more common, but they’re certainly not the only options. For a little more drama, consider painting your garage doors dark gray or black. Both these shades can be great options for traditional or contemporary homes, where the existing architecture can benefit from some added drama and depth. Depending on your specific home’s design, a black garage door can recede into the background or “pop” to create a stunning focal point. If black is a little too harsh for your style, consider a dark brown for similar drama with a little more warmth. A deep, walnut brown exudes warmth, lending a real classic appeal without looking dated.

Still not sure which paint to choose? Visiting a paint store for more garage door color ideas is a good way to spend an hour or so this weekend. Most paint stores have brochures with complete color schemes already laid out so you can get an accurate idea of what you can expect—and eliminate unwelcome surprises.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.

I had called overhead doors because there was something wrong with my door. I had no clue what was wrong. The door technician they sent out was Amazing. He was fast pace,clean,organized and also showed/told me what all he was doing. Derick S. Is the reason why I will keep going back to them. He made sure he cleaned up his mess before leaving, he really went above and beyond. Request Derick for your service.
