When it comes to painting a home, many people think of what color to paint the walls, front door, and even shutters; but what about the garage door? Many people forget that their garage doors can add some curb appeal to the overall look of their home. Especially if you can see the garage from the front of the home, you’ll want to pick a color that can really tie everything together. 

A garage door shouldn’t be an afterthought because it is still a key part of your home! Just like the front door, your garage is just another entry into the home, and can create a welcoming feeling with the right color. If you aren’t sure what color to use, we recommend a matching look by painting it the same color as your front door. This will help tie the home together, and bring unity to your exterior color scheme. If you want to create a look that stands out more, try framing a dark-colored garage door with white trim. For a more monochromatic look, use two tones of the same color. A lighter or darker shade of your base color will add contrast. 

Two-car garages can make up to 30% of your home’s front facade. That’s why choosing the right color for your garage is so important because it plays a key role in the overall look of your home and promotes a more unifying look. It also adds value to your home. There is a lot to consider when picking a color, and the colors of your home’s brick, siding, and roofing will influence what color you decide. Aside from the doors themselves, your garage is just another room in the home, and you can make it even more inviting by adding a new floor coating, cabinets, and slatwall. You can also paint the walls of the interior, and a fresh coat of the right color can greatly improve the look of the space and its lighting conditions!
