Your garage door plays a key role in your home’s overall appearance and, as a homeowner, you want to make sure you love the colour you choose for it. That’s why at Creative Door Services, we keep up with all the emerging trends in garage door colours, and we have an idea to throw at you as you weigh the options for your next garage door purchase: why not go black?

Just as versatile as white, black complements well with many colours and, in terms of its effect, it runs the gamut from bold and modern to simple and timeless, depending on the style and on your home’s colour scheme. Furthermore, black tends to be the most low-maintenance option, as it doesn’t show dirt and wear as much as lighter colours.

On its own, a black garage door can come off as overly dominant. Generally it’s important that it matches the exterior detailing of your home, such as trim, shutters, window panes and the front door. When one or more of these features is black, you can achieve an exquisite balance by opting for a black garage door.

Creative Door sells and installs beautiful black garage doors to scores of satisfied customers. Whatever kind of door you’re looking for—classic wood, premium steel, modern glass, carriage-house, etc.—we can offer models with stunning black finishes.

Here are just a few of the great looks you can achieve with by choosing to style your new garage doors with a contemporary black finishing flair.

A Modern Touch

Whether you’re leaning towards bold and beautiful or a clean, stylish look that grabs the attention of passers-by, black may be your best bet. You can count on it to pop against white trim and to complement modern esthetic trends (such as audacious, non-traditional shapes and angles).

The Richards-Wilcox Contemporary Rockwood Landmark Series garage doors are a good option as they’re eminently sleek and modern. The elegant overlays of rich red cedar can come in stained black, and decorative elements such as hand-forged wrought iron can be added.

And black is an extremely popular option for modern glass garage doors, such as the Model 8800 from Wayne Dalton. Glass garage doors are intrinsically modern in their appearance, so opting for a sleek black design for the frame usually works well.

Stick With the Classics

If you decide on a simple and elegant wood garage door, black is just as timeless as white. When it’s complemented with black exterior detail, a black garage door has an understated beauty (not unlike a simple but lovely black dress). If you need convincing, just take a look at the Wayne Dalton 40 Series, whose style is perfectly complementary to classic colonial and mid-century modern homes.


A Rustic Take

Giving a rustic-style garage door a faded black finish makes for a stylish hybrid of antique and modern. The Chalet garage door model from Martin Door achieves this balance perfectly.


Elegant Style

Are you drawn to the beauty of a carriage house garage door? Then you should consider a black finish, which can make this elegant style all the more striking. Take a look at the Model 6600 Carriage House garage doors from Wayne Dalton, which come in 16 designs that feature a number of different options for windows.
