Garage door colours


Though it’s easy to think of a garage as a fairly utilitarian building, there’s no reason it has to be. Modern garage doors come in so many different styles, colours and designs that it’s possible to make a real statement with your garage, whether you’re attempting to complement the colour of your house or try something completely different.

There are, of course, no rules to stick to when choosing the colour of your garage door – the only limitations are your imagination and the palette offered by your supplier. However, if you’re struggling to decide and are looking for a bit of guidance, here are some things you may want to consider when picking a colour for your garage door.

Material used

One thing that will potentially restrict the colours and finishes available to you is the material you choose for your door. Most types of door allow you to take your pick from a wide range of colours, whereas with a wooden timber door you will likely want to avoid paints or glossy finishes to better enjoy its natural look. Also consider the material of the garage itself – a colour that looks good on concrete may not match quite so well with brick.

Complementing or contrasting colours

You will also have to decide to what extent you want your garage to mimic the appearance of your house. This is down to personal preference – would you rather your garage appear as a continuation of your house, or stand alone as a statement piece? Consider the colour and trim of your house and decide accordingly.

Colour testing

There’s an easy way to test out potential colour choices beforehand and avoid making a purchase you’ll come to regret. Simply paint a spare piece of wood or similar material in whichever colour you have in mind, then hold it next to your current door and see what you think!
