When you are looking to purchase a garage door, you like to think about all the features of the door, such as how it opens, lifespan of the springs, ability to add an automatic garage door opener, locks, and handles – but there is one feature that is often overlooked – the colour.
Many people think that the colour of the garage door is an unimportant feature, but it can really make a difference to your home. That is why it is important that you take time to pick the right colour for your garage door.
Picking the right garage door colour can really brighten up the look of your home and increase street appeal. Unfortunately, many people aren't sure how to go about choosing the right garage door colour. We have gathered some tips that will help you pick the right colour when looking at B&D Roller Doors and Panelift® doors.
Think About the Colour of Your Home
The colour of your home can often determine what colour garage door you pick. After all, you want the garage door to complement the colour of your home, not clash with it. For example, if your home was a soft beige colour and you picked a bright orange door, while your home is trimmed in red or brown, it might not be visually appealing.
Before picking a colour, think about the colour of your home. If you have a home that is a bolder, brighter colour, such as green or red, you may want to go with a softer colour for your garage door. A white garage door will complement the colour of your home.
On the other hand, if you have a softer colour home, such as white, grey, or beige, you may want to pick a garage door colour that isn't the same as your home. Picking a garage door that is the same colour as your home will give your home a washed out look.
Decide How Bold You Want Your Home to Be
The garage door is one thing that can really make a house stand out and catch people's attention. Before purchasing a garage door, you need to decide how bold and attention grabbing you want your home to be.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do I want my home to attract people's attention?
- Do I just want to blend in with the community?
- Do I want to add a pop of colour to my home?
How you answer these questions will determine what colour garage door you purchase. If you want to grab people's attention or add a pop of colour, you will want to pick a darker colour such as green, black, charcoal, or blue. However, if you want to be subtle and blend in, you will want to pick a lighter colour, such as beige or white.
