???4 Simple Ways to Create a More Custom Garage Door

November 12, 2016

You may have noticed garage doors are getting more attention than ever before when it comes to their contribution to a home's appearance. Newer, often high end trends like aluminum and wood styles are becoming a more common. Even standard doors are featuring details to create an individualized sense of style to break up the consistency between houses.

If you are looking to move beyond a basic garage door, without going fully custom - consider these details:

Windows – The right windows in your garage door can add light inside and curb appeal outside. Windows are available in plain panels all the way through ornate styles with wrought iron. You can also decide between a full size window or partial window, including a series to create an arch. 

Door Panels – You can opt for more vintage looks, more modern looks and just about every look in between when choosing the panel style for your garage door. Even the grain of the panels contributes to the overall look. Of course, you can also choose a different a materials all together to really set the tone for the door.

Custom Colors – Many doors can be custom painted to be an exact match to your home’s paint color depending on the paint supplier used. This can take your garage door from looking plain to planned – and be easily incorporated into your home’s design.

Accents – To complete the look a few small details can make a difference. On a garage door the decorative hardware can include handles, step plates and hinges. As you select a new door, consider if these are the finishing touch for your home.

The ability to customize your door will vary by product line and manufacturer. Working with a company that specializes in garage doors can help guide you through the process. An expert can also help you evaluate the efficiency of the door so you can make the most of your investment now and for years to come.
