choose the right custom garage door designs for your home Knowing how to choose the right custom garage door designs for your home will help maximize your curb appeal. But this is easier said than done! Panel design and shape, window inserts, accessories, material, finish—there are so many aspects to consider. The wide variety of garage door styles makes the selection process even more confusing. Our experienced garage door designer suggests using key elements from the façade of your home as a guideline.

Here are 3 tips to help you choose the right custom garage door designs for your home.

  1. Color matching: As with any home renovation project, color is always an important consideration. You do not have to settle for the standard white and beige; there are hundreds of colors to choose from. You can also customize the garage door color to find a match for your home. How do you decide on a shade? Pick an accent color from your home’s façade. This could be the color of your front door and windows or trim (a popular and safe choice), the dominant hue on a multi-colored brick exterior, or the roof (an attractive but less-explored option). A rising trend is signature carriage doors in two colors. It gives your home that extra pop while allowing you to select two colors instead of just one. Avoid bright colors and extreme contrasts that will make your property appear too loud.
  2. Shape selection: Distinctive garage door panels make your property stand out from the rest. To find a design that blends with your home’s architecture, observe the dominant geometric shapes on its façade. From the windowpanes to arched entryways and roof peaks, there is a variety of architectural features to guide your choice of panel design. A textured finish adds visual detail,richness and character to your garage door.
  3. Finishing details: Decorative window inserts and hardware take your curb appeal up several notches. Should you prefer a minimalistic look, tasteful garage door accents are the simplest way to transform your home’s appearance.
