Everything You Need to Know to Choose the Best Color for Your Garage Door
Most homeowners put a lot of thought into the curb appeal of their home. They think about choosing the right color for their roof, the right landscaping plants, and the right style overall. However, if they are not thinking about the right color for their custom garage door, they are missing out on a great opportunity to improve their home’s curb appeal.
The Most Popular Color is White
Let’s get this out of the way: If you want to choose a garage door or custom gate based on what is most popular, then your top choice is white. This classic color works with just about any color scheme or style. When properly maintained, white looks crisp, clean, and beautiful.
Neutral Shades Are Popular
Another popular choice is to work with neutral shades. This would include colors like black, soft or dark gray, walnut brown, and beige. As is true of white, these colors go with many decors and are classic colors. They can blend in with just about any home exterior. If you want a color that is less common than white but do not want to make your home the talk of the neighborhood by painting your garage bright orange, one of these neutral colors may work great for you.
Focus on Coordinating – Not Matching
Remember as you are considering your color scheme that your front door should be the focal point. Trying to match the garage door and front door may seem to make sense, but this can actually be confusing and could negatively affect the overall look.
One example is a home that is made from brick. This may look nice with a beige garage door and a bold red door. Brown and red are both close on the color spectrum, which means that they will coordinate with each other without matching. In short, choose colors that are within the same color family, or at least a color that complements the color family of the rest of your home.
