It’s true – years ago when shopping around for a new garage door, the choices were limited. White or brown were the standard colors and the doors came in a 16-foot size with a small, but inconvenient metal handle at the bottom. If you plan to do some shopping in today’s market, expect to be surprised at what you will find!
Garage doors have become a popular way to update and remodel the home, since the front of the home is what people see first. Not to mention, most homeowners are in and out of the garage door throughout the day, so it makes sense to have one that is visually appealing and convenient. So what are some of the unique choices out there today?
Forget white doors, now you can indulge in the popular earth-tone colors, such as taupe, gray and hunter green. Homeowners find that matching the garage door to window shutters and entryways is a great way for the house to stand out. Window inserts are also popular, but instead of one style, there are dozens to choose from! In fact, carriage style doors are the most popular and a great seller for all styles of homes.
With bigger vehicles, people are also opting for the larger size door – an 18 foot garage space that offers more room! Wood is a great choice, especially because it can be painted different colors and is in fact cost-effective. Although not as durable, aluminum garage doors have the potential to be coated with just about any color. Steel, while much harder to purchase in colorful shades, is durable and low maintenance.
