The decor of the exterior of your home is every bit as important as the interior. Curb appeal makes your guests feel welcome and puts a smile on their faces before they even step inside. It also adds value to your home, a key point should you ever decide to sell.
Your roof, siding, windows, doors, and landscaping add significantly to the look of your home’s exterior. Don’t forget your garage door. It should be functional but it can also boost the curb appeal of your house. Modern garage doors offer a wide variety of styles.
Modern-Style Garage Doors
Traditional garage doors are generally made of wood and have a row of windows across the top. They can be painted any color and serve their purpose well while matching the color of your home.
Modern garage doors offer a sleeker look and come in a variety of materials with many different patterns for the windows. Available in numerous colors, modern garage doors utilize flush panels and decorative hardware for clean lines. They allow homeowners to create a contemporary look that suits their tastes and styles.
Modern-Style Steel Doors
Steel doors are strong and durable but relatively lightweight. They come in single, double, or triple layers to provide the right insulation for the climate in which you live. You can choose polyurethane or polystyrene-injected insulation to keep out the cold and heat and protect your car and stored items.
Frosted or obscure windows are options that let in light but hide the contents of the garage. You can choose from a variety of colors and textures including some that mimic wood. Panels can be flush or grooved. There are plenty of options to suit your needs.
Aluminum Acrylic Doors
For an attractive and contemporary look, consider doors that have an aluminum frame with acrylic panels. They let in light, look sleek, and are durable and low-maintenance. The frames come in many finishes to help match your garage and home. The acrylic window panels can be opaque, translucent, or transparent and tinted in a number of stylish colors. Glass panels are also available and provide greater insulation.
Modern Wood Doors
Garage doors are still available in wood but are very different from the traditional design. Multi-layered and available in different types of wood, textures, and colors, the modern wood door looks classic but contemporary. They provide excellent insulation and can be fitted with frosted and obscure windows for privacy.
Faux Wood Doors
Faux wood doors come in many textures and colors that effectively mimic real wood. They are lightweight, durable, and low maintenance and allow many options to suit your individual style. Faux wood doors come in a number of plank styles and you can choose different window options to let in more light or provide more privacy. Faux wood doors can also be insulated to suit your climate.
