How to Pick the Perfect Color for Your Garage Door

February 28, 2017

Whether you are giving your existing garage door a new paint color or investing in a brand new door, it can be tough to pick the perfect color for such a large surface. Your garage door plays a huge role in the overall look of your home or its curb appeal. Your style and color choices can either have it blend into the rest of your house or have it stand out and draw the eye. To help out, we put together a quick list of tips to keep in mind when thinking about how you want your garage door to complement or contrast against your home

  • If the exterior of your home is painted in a neutral color, like light browns, tan, beige, or gray, then a white garage door might be the perfect match for you. The white will brighten up the paint color of the house and can make everything come together very nicely if the trim is also in white.

  • If you donít want your garage door to stand out, then have a professional color match it to your home. This will make the house seem bigger and you can move the focal point of the front of your house away from the garage and towards the front door.

  • If your home is white, then adding a color to your garage door will add some life and style to your homeís exterior look and showcase your personality, whether itís a minimalistic neutral or a bright, energetic pop of color.

  • For a sophisticated look, darker paints on a garage door really make a statement, like black or darker shades of blue and green.

  • If your home is built with brick, then you can either paint your garage door white for a traditional and very clean style or use a color that is also found in brick, like brown, tan, or even wood, for a stylish and unified look.
