Choosing a Garage Door

Whether you’re newly installing garage door or replacing one, there are some key things to bear in mind. You’ll want to choose a garage door that matches the overall style of your farmhouse-style home. Neutral colors, clean lines, warm inviting design, etc. all bring the right elements to your farm home’s appearance.

Material Options

Today’s garage doors are made of a variety of materials, including steel, wood, aluminum, fiberglass, and more. Some materials are better suited for the farmhouse look, creating visually pleasing textures and looks. On the practical side, choose a material that will stand up well to sun and weather. Be aware of the maintenance requirements of real wooden doors.

Color Selection

The color of the door can make a world of difference. Depending on your goals, your chosen color can blend in with the overall color theme of the house. Or, it can tie in with the accent colors of your home’s trim and entry way doors. The color can also be chosen a bold offset of eye-catching contrast. Choose what you like, but be intentional in your selection.

Elements of Design

The finishing touches of the door should also be considered. Make sure any windows and decorative hardware should thematically tie in with the design of your home’s current look. A mismatch of architectural styling can create visual dissonance that will only detract from the farmhouse style, so be sure your chosen design elements are in harmony.

Designing and creating a visually pleasing garage entry is only half of the fun. The other half is the pleasure of owning and using a beautiful car park.
