Style your garage door

19/09/2016

The style of your garage door makes a crucial contribution to the overall ‘curb appeal’ of your home, which is why it is important you get it right. Huddersfield Garage Doors have been supplying the people of Huddersfield with stylish garage doors for over thirty years and have outlined the top ‘dos’ and don’ts’ for picking your new garage door:

Do

Match the aesthetic of your home. For example if you have a traditional property, you may want to opt for a timber door. The original and natural door design can complement homes that already have timber windows and doors perfectly, particularly in rural locations. Furthermore, with the classic Up & Over garage door you have a wide variety of styles to suit any home. There is the traditional Georgian style, as well as options that include contemporary features for modern homes, such as windows to increase natural light within your garage.

Do

Consider colour choices carefully. To blend your new garage door seamlessly into the exterior of your home, try match it to the colour of the house itself. For example if your home is brick, find a colour that matches the tone of the brickwork. Using the same colour garage door as the body of your house can make your property appear larger. Hormann, the world’s leading manufacturer of garage door products, offer a hugely diverse range of styles, colours and finishes for your garage door, so it is easy to find the exact match for you.

Don’t

Paint your garage door in the same accent colour as your front door. While complementary matching garage and entrance doors can have a striking effect, if you have made a bold statement with your front door this should be your focal point. By using the same colour for the garage you can draw attention and break up the façade of your home.
