It's a new year and many people are in search of a new look for themselves and for their homes. There's a lot that you can do to spruce up the exterior of your house but for this year, you may want to focus on your garage. More specifically, the overhead door.
Because garage doors occupy such a significant portion of the facade, not doing enough in terms of style would be a wasted opportunity. Luckily, you have a long list of options when it comes to that and there are many bold styles that are coming up this year.
Use of Bold Colors
Once upon a time, all that was expected of garages was that they blend in. Today, a lot of people are deciding that they want their overhead door to be seen. A garage door that stands out can greatly improve aesthetics depending on the shape of the door and it's positioning.
Using bold colors is an excellent way of making your garage door more visible. However, you might want to steer more towards earth colors.
Putting in Windows
Putting windows in a garage door is yet another trend that is still rising. For many people, their garage serves as more than just a place to leave the car. Some people have even turned their garages into extra living spaces. Putting windows in the doors is a great idea to get some natural light in there.
However, windows are not just about the interior. Whether you go with frosted or clear glass, there is a lot you can achieve in terms of style by adding windows.
Doors made of wood suffered a decline in popularity as materials like fiberglass took over. However, wood is making a comeback in more ways than one.
A good number of people are going back to natural wood, preferring its authentic look that suits classic home designs better than others. However, other people are opting for styles that only imitate the look of wood. Some of these options are extremely well done and not easy to distinguish from a distance.
Another garage door trend that's reeling in a lot of homeowners is the use of big ornate pieces that have a characteristic old-school look. From the hinges to the handles, there are plenty of period pieces that you can add on to your garage to give it a more stylish appearance this year.Share
