So you have decided to purchase a new garage door, but choosing garage door colours can be tricky.
What colour will look the best?
We can help with some general tips and tricks that may make it easier for you to decide.
The first thing you need to work out is if you would like the new door to contrast with it’s surrounds or blend into them.
Whilst there is no ‘hard and fast’ rule for this, as a general guide if your homes facade is ‘busy’ or has lots of different elements and textures going on it may be best to choose a neutral colour door that doesn’t stand out too much. Simple yet sophisticated can be the best way to go here.
If you think your homes facade is a little plain and could use some different elements then maybe a more bold palate could work wonders.
Here are some examples of doors that blend in and doors that ‘pop’ out.
You may notice in almost all of the examples above that the garage door colours ties in with at least one, but usually no more than 3 other elements of the facade. This is always good practice no matter how small the other element may be. The garage door colour may pick up tones in the bricks, roof tiles or eaves lining. It may be the same colour as the gutter, fascia or render or match the window frames.
It is generally not a good idea to have the garage door colour be stand alone, as in the only example of that particular colour on the homes facade. Sometimes it’s a great idea to pick the garage door colour you like first and then paint your gutters or fascia to match.
