How to Select the Right Colour for a Garage Door

When choosing a new garage door, the system is the most important decision to make. How easy it is to use, how secure it will keep your garage, and whether or not the door is a suitable choice for your budget are all important factors to keep in mind. However, the colour of your garage door is another important feature to think about. Your garage door will usually play a large part in your home’s aesthetic appeal, and most people want their garage door to look as nice as possible to boost the curb appeal of their home. Here are some tips to keep in mind when it comes to choosing the right colour garage door. 

Consider the Rest of Your Home

When choosing a garage door from Smooth Garage Doors, one of the first things to consider is how well it’s going to match the other external doors and windows of your home. Smooth Garage Doors offer a range of different garage door installation options in Richmond Hill, Markham and Vaughan, along with garage door maintenance and repair services. They can help you find the perfect colour for your home or provide advice if you want to repaint your garage door to match.

Popular Colours

There are many different colours that you can choose from when picking your new garage door, but a popular colour choice will often be your best option since this will ensure a wider aesthetic appeal, especially if you are planning to sell your home in the future. There are lots of different colours that are popular for garage doors right now. If you want a foolproof option, then you can’t go wrong with a crisp and clean white, or consider grey, beige, or wood effect. Darker colours like green or navy blue are also popular right now but bear in mind that fashion trends do change when it comes to décor, so these might not be as timeless as some other options.

Consider a Traditional Effect

If you live in a rural area or have a more rustic aesthetic to your home, you cannot go wrong with a traditional wood effect garage door. Traditional wood effect is a choice that you can use on almost any type of garage doors, even high-tech options with automatic openers. Oak and rosewood laminate are some popular options; you can choose a light, medium, or dark wood depending on the look that you are going for and how well it will match with the rest of your home.

Get Advice

If you’re just not sure what colour door to go for, then don’t be afraid to ask your garage door supplier for advice. After all, they are experts in fitting garage doors and have probably seen a lot of homes where different colours work well, and others, where the colour is chosen, doesn’t look that great. Most will be happy to advise you on the best colour and style of garage door to choose based on your home.

When it comes to choosing a garage door, the colour might not be the most important factor to consider but it will certainly be one of the most noticeable.
