In most homes, because of its size, the garage door is often the most noticeable part of the building. Therefore, it is important that you pay attention to the details of your garage door, just as you do with other exterior finishing and landscaping detail.

Your garage door color enhances the aesthetics of the front of your home, helping your home stand out in your neighborhood, as well as adds to the value of your home, so you need to select the right color and design. There are wide varieties of garage door colors available, ranging from neutral colors such as gray and dark colors such as black.

3 Tips For Choosing The Right Garage Door Color

Garage door help your home make a statement and provide a positive curb appeal. Thus, it is important that you take some time to consider the color of your garage door. Here are some tips to help you choose the right garage door color for your home.

  1. Blend Colors Appropriately

Blending your garage door color appropriately gives the front of your home an attractive look, and can be done in several ways. You can match your garage door color to the color of your house if you don’t want it to draw unnecessary attention. This helps your garage door blend into the background of your home, especially if your house is made of bricks, and keeps the focal point on your front door.

You can also choose a garage door whose color contrasts with the color of your home. For instance, if your house is painted gray or beige (or any other neutral color), you should choose a white garage door, and if your house is painted white, you should choose an attractive color that will give your home a cleaner, noticeable and brighter appearance


  1. Match Up The Right Parts

Your garage door color should complement rather than compete with the colors of the other parts of your home. Therefore, when choosing a garage door, you should match the garage door color with the color of your house. This will make your home appear bigger than it is, as well as avoid drawing unnecessary attention. Don’t match your garage door color with your front door, shutters or porch door, which are the focal points of your home, as it would draw attention away from your home. However, if it is a norm in your neighborhood to have the same color of garage door as your front door, then it may not be such a bad idea.


  1. Stick To One Color

Choosing a garage door with one color help your home looks more outstanding than multi-colored doors, and in most cases, clashing colors do not work. Furthermore, you shouldn’t paint your garage door with two different colors, as this is likely to give your home a negative outlook. Instead, choose a single right color that would make your home exterior stand out. However, when choosing a color, you should consider their pros and cons. For instance, white garage doors, although bright and crisp, show dirt easier, while black door which hides dirt better, may be too stark.
