Colour Trends

White is no longer the top colour choice for garage doors. In 2021, homeowners are turning to darker hues to give their homes a more refined and sophisticated look. Here are some of this year’s trendiest paint colours:

  • Grey and Yellow. Pantone’s colours of the year for 2021 were “Ultimate Grey” and “Illuminating” yellow. Combine the hues by choosing one colour for your garage door and the other for the trim. Alternatively, opt for a more understated look by selecting this shade of grey on its own. It offers a similar level of brightness as white but is a bit softer and complements a wide variety of home exteriors. Ultimate Grey is practical, blends into the background and doesn’t distract from your home’s other features.

  • Greige. If you’re looking for a neutral for your garage door, another option is Sherwin Williams’ “Urban Bronze.” This darker grey has a slight bronze undertone. It’s nature-inspired energy is very versatile and looks great against a white or beige trim.

  • Teal. Benjamin Moore’s “Aegean Teal” is a deeper shade of teal that adds a pop of colour without being too overpowering. It’s a calming hue that works well with earth-toned exteriors and a variety of architectural styles. That said, Gliddan’s “Aqua Fiesta” is a lighter, more eye-catching shade of teal that really makes a statement. It looks great against light exteriors and might just be the accent colour you’re looking for.

  • Brown. Walnut brown is a neutral yet sophisticated colour that can pass as an expensive wooden door when applied the right way. That said, choosing the right walnut brown is key — some shades can actually date the exterior of your home.

  • Black. This is a modern and stylish colour choice for your garage door. In fact, it’s been demonstrated that a black garage door can increase the property value of your home. As a bonus, it won’t show dirt and wear as easily as a lighter-coloured door.

Painting your garage door is an easy and inexpensive way to give your home a new look. Always remember to check your manufacturer’s warranty to make sure that painting your garage door does not it.

Design Trends

Garage doors can take up to half of a home’s facade. For this reason, choosing a design that reflects your unique style can help make a great first impression. In fact, upgrading your garage door can instantly boost your home’s curb appeal. Here are a few of 2021’s trendiest garage door designs:

  • Glass doors. Increasingly, garages are becoming more than just a space to park your car. Indeed, many have been converted into laundry rooms, workshops, exercise spaces, and more. Because of this, many homeowners are upgrading to glass doors.

  • Wood doors. Solid wood doors provide unrivalled style and sophistication. This year, horizontal and V-shaped wood plank patterns are all the rage. However, wood can be expensive and high maintenance. If you want something easier to take care of that offers the same great style, vinyl or fibreglass can pass for the real thing.

  • Carriage house/farmhouse doors. Carriage house or farmhouse style doors are designed to look like stable or barn doors. They often feature wrought-iron strap hinges, decorative hardware, and grooved panel designs. They add rustic charm to the front of your home and come in a variety of materials, panel styles, colours, and window configurations.

  • Steel doors. Classic steel doors continue to be a great choice. They’re durable and built to withstand the elements. In addition, they’re easy to maintain. However, classic doesn’t have to mean boring. You can easily personalize your door with raised panelling or bold colours.

Although it’s common for garage doors to have small windows along the top, doors made of glass panels can give your home a sleek look while still offering safety and security. You can opt for tinted, frosted, or ground glass to ensure privacy while still allowing natural light to filter into the garage. In addition, you can choose from a variety of frame designs. Keep things traditional with brushed aluminum or add a pop of colour with a powder coat finish. Vertical placed windows are also very popular and add a nice modern touch to your garage.
