The new year is a great time to start thinking about updating the look of your home with a new garage door. We’re excited about the latest and greatest garage doors that include bold colors, large windows and contemporary design. And while these doors are on trend for 2019, they’re also timeless, so whichever one you choose for your home, you can be confident it will add curb appeal for years to come.
Here’s our top five garage door trends for 201
Garage doors with color
Adding color to a simple garage door can make your home’s unique style stand out. If your tastes are bold, consider a bright color like red or a deep green. Black is another great color to paint your garage door because it adds contrast to your home, especially if it’s lighter in color. Earthy colors like leaf green and sunset orange are also on trend for 2019.
Clopay offers garage doors in a variety of colors, and Sherwin Williams sells a line of paint specifically created for garage doors.
High tech garage doors
From sensors that can detect when your car is at the garage door to doors that you can open with a tap on your phone, high tech has definitely reached the garage. LiftMaster features myQ smartphone control that gives you worry-free access to your garage door no matter where you are in the world. Garage doors activated by voice are also big this year. Imagine telling your garage door to open, heat or cool, or turn on the lights with your voice… now it can happen.
Wood garage doors
While wood garage doors really never go out of style, today you can achieve the look of the highest quality wood garage doors that are actually made of fiberglass or steel. These newest doors look like natural wood, but they’re extremely durable and cost less than natural wood garage doors.
Of course, if your budget allows, consider investing in one of the latest trends – hand crafted wood garage doors in exotic woods like mahogany or teak.
Modern garage doors
What we love about today’s modern doors is that while they’re sleek and contemporary, they’re also so well-crafted and well-designed that they’ll add value to your home for years (even decades) to come. Clopay offers several choices when it comes to modern doors including the Modern Steel collection that works great with contemporary and mid-century modern homes.
Clopay’s Avante collection features glass and aluminum garage doors that are eye-catching and let in lots of natural light. These are also great to use as room dividers or even as large exterior doors.
Carriage House Doors
As much as we love modern doors, we love the timeless beauty of carriage house doors, too. And judging from their popularity, we’re not alone. Carriage house doors come in a variety of styles, so if your home is more French farmhouse than, say, American farmhouse, there’s guaranteed to be a garage door designed to work perfectly on your home. They also look great on traditional homes.
