The garage door is the largest entry door to your home and may even be the largest feature on the
outside of your house. And if that is true, why do so many homeowners let it fade into the background
in the same shade as the rest of the house? This large feature should make a big statement about the
design and beauty of your home. If the garage door color is muted and uninteresting, it is time to make
a bold change. We are talking about color trends in garage doors that add both beauty and investment
value to the home. Here are a few of the top 2023 Garage Door Color Trends.
Dark and Bold Colors
White garage doors have been the standard for a traditional and classic style door. A white finish will
often be the initial choice of most homeowners. And a fresh, white paint job on a garage door in great
condition will keep your home looking sharp. But if you desire for your home to stand out and make a
modern statement, consider a different paint color for the garage door.
A bold color can make your garage door visually stunning and help to make your home look more
modern and stylish. Some popular options that create a pop of color on the home include a vibrant red
and shades of blue ranging from powder blue to dark navy. But if you prefer more muted colors that still
make a statement, neutral earth tones can create a seamless relationship between the house and the
nature surrounding it. Lighter shades of wood-colored brown have been popular, but now the trend is
moving into darker shades. These neutral colors also include shades of greens and greys ranging the
entire spectrum from light to dark.
Black Garage Doors
Perhaps the most intriguing color trend for garage doors is solid black. Whereas a traditional white door
blends with the entirety of a home, a black garage door creates a bold accent. A black door fits with any
home style – craftsman, farmhouse, modern, colonial, ranch, or Victorian. Complement the black garage
door with black window frames and lighting fixtures, or by painting some of the accent features of the
exterior of the home. A black garage door will bring your home curb appeal and help it appear
contemporary and upscale.
What about the front door? To keep the new color scheme cohesive, match the color of the front door
to the new color of the garage door. Although this does not have to be done, it will make create a more
balanced look for the outside of the home. Whatever color you choose for the garage door, changing
from standard white to a bold color will ensure your home stands out from the rest.
If replacing the garage door is not in your budget, painting the door is a great alternative. For a little help
