Garage Doors
Did You Know?  [video_popup url=”” text=”None”]

When considering how to improve the curb appeal of your home, one often overlooked element is the garage door.  Many times, garage doors are ignored until they are damaged or so old and broken, they don’t work and must be replaced.  But they are an important part of curb appeal, in many instances as important as the front door. Garage doors are built to last a long time, so there’s a good chance that you have a garage door that may look old and weathered

Garage doors that face the street are especially crucial to the curb appeal and overall look of your home.  It should reflect the design and style of the house.  Rather than plain panels, add detail that reflects the style of your house.

  • Small windowpanes for a traditional look
  • Cross pieces to create a barn door or rustic look
  • Horizontal windows mimicking a mid-century or modern look

You can change the look of your home by tricking out or replacing your garage door.

Finish off an updated look with style-appropriate light fixtures to show off your new and improved door.  Don’t be afraid to dress up the garage entryway a little. You may want to consider installing decorative hinges and handles in order to make the door stand out and look a little more elegant.
