Let’s be honest, most of us still like the reward of being the trend setter and “popular kid on the block!” Sure, we’re a bit more mature, but it’s still pretty awesome when a car slows down and yells out the window, “Your garage door is SICK!” For those who may not know, “sick” means cool, or rad if you’re a youth of the 80’s.
In all seriousness, a slick garage door can completely transform your home. A house can go from an identity crisis to architectural beauty! Here’s a few things to play around with as you shop around. Don’t hesitate to pick up a phone and give us a ring if you find the perfect door on Pinterest or Google.
Embrace Unique Materials
When it comes to garage door design, there's no limit. For example, consider a garage door crafted from reclaimed wood or opt for modern materials like aluminum or glass for a sleek and contemporary look that stands out from the crowd.
Incorporate Architectural Elements
Incorporate architectural elements that complement your home's style. If you have a traditional or historic house, choose a garage door with classic details such as decorative hardware, paneling, or windows with divided lights. For a modern or minimalist home, opt for clean lines and minimal embellishments that exude sleek sophistication.
Play with Color
Garage doors no longer need to blend into the background. Instead, make them a focal point by choosing bold and vibrant colors that contrast with your home's exterior.
Explore Unique Designs
Consider unconventional garage door designs that make a statement and turn heads in your neighborhood. Carriage-style doors, reminiscent of traditional barn doors, add rustic charm and elegance. Modern designs featuring clean lines, asymmetrical patterns, or artistic panel arrangements can create a bold and contemporary aesthetic.
Let in Natural Light
Garage door windows not only add visual interest but also allow natural light to flow into your garage space. Unique window configurations can really enhance the overall design. Frosted or textured glass can provide privacy while still allowing light to penetrate.
Don't Forget the Details
Pay attention to the smaller details that can make a big impact. Decorative hardware, such as handles, hinges, and decorative accents, can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your garage door design. Additionally, consider incorporating smart technology features, such as Wi-Fi-enabled openers or keypad entry systems, for convenience and modern functionality.
