Show Off Your Unique Style with a Decorative Garage Door

Landscaping, a new coat of paint, and decorative fencing can boost your home’s curb appeal. But did you know you can enhance the look of your home by simply updating your garage door? 

Bayside Garage Doors in Tampa, Florida, offers a variety of options to personalize and elevate the appearance of your home’s garage doors with decorative hardware, material finishes, and customization options. Before you opt for a brand new garage door, look at these options that can transform the look of your home’s exterior.

Types of Decorative Garage Door Hardware

Sometimes all you need is a stylish touch. Decorative hardware options for garage doors include:

  • Handles and hinges: Add depth and character to your traditional or rustic-style home with wrought iron handles and hinges reminiscent of classic carriage doors. 
  • Clavos: Clavos are decorative nails or studs you can add to the face of your garage door for a hand-forged appearance. Clavos come in various shapes and styles, such as round, square, or pyramidal, and can be strategically placed to mimic the look of an antique door.
  • Strap hinges: Long, thin strap hinges can provide a dramatic look, especially on large garage doors. A strap hinge can be purely decorative or functional depending on whether you simply want to achieve a certain appearance or you want to use the hardware as part of the door.
  • Door knockers: While a knocker isn’t a functional addition to a garage door, you can add a touch of elegance with a decorative door knocker to serve as a sophisticated focal point.
  • Pull handles: Large decorative yet functional pull handles can make a bold statement and are particularly fitting for garage doors designed to look like barn doors.

You can further display your own unique style through the various materials and finishes of decorative garage door hardware options. 

Decorative Hardware Materials and Finishes

The material and finish of your decorative hardware distinguishes the look and significantly adds to the overall aesthetics of your door. Popular materials include: 

  • Wrought iron
  • Steel
  • Bronze

Types of decorative hardware finishes range from the bright, shiny appeal of silvery steel to the rustic and aged look of brushed, coppery bronze. The various material and finish options available let you match your decorative hardware to your home’s unique style. While the look you want to achieve is important, remember to choose materials and finishes aligned with the climate where you live. In Florida’s humidity, weather-resistant options ensure you can maintain your home’s curb appeal.

Customization and Design Options for an Esthetic That’s Truly You

The beauty of decorative garage door hardware lies in the customizations and design options available to you. Consider the architectural style of your home and the color of your garage door when selecting hardware. The right combination enhances your home’s architectural details and creates a cohesive look.

Professional Installation

You might be tempted to add these decorative touches to your garage door as a DIY project, but professional installation ensures a correct and safe installation. This is especially important for decorative options meant to serve as functional parts of your garage door, such as hinges or handles that require precise alignment and secure attachment.
