Step 1. Complementing your Existing Architecture
A large portion of what people see of your home from the road is the garage door. Choosing a garage door style, that is compelling but also complementary, as the rest of your home’s exterior. There are a wide variety of garage door styles from traditional raised panel designs, to the unique temporary vinyl garage doors, to the classic carriage-house style.
Start by looking at the facade of the garage
Is your house made of:
- Red, white, or grey brick?
- Light or grey stone?
- White or adobe stucco?
- White, grey, or custom-colored siding?
Being aware of how your garage door will fit into the overall style of your home can help narrow your search.
