October is the perfect time of the year to invest in a new garage door. Summer is wrapping up and making way for fall home improvement projects you’ll want to finish before the busy holiday season. As time flies by, it may be a good idea to start looking at garage door ideas that will inspire you to choose the right garage door for your budget and style.
To help you get started, the team at Martin Door have put together a list of the top four places to look for garage door inspiration. Some you can do in the comfort of your own home.
We absolutely love Houzz for its huge collection of garage door photos, as well as photos and ideas about how to repurpose your garage into something unique and special. Houzz also features a great Advice and Stories section where you can read about home owners experiences with choosing a garage door and how they customized the door to suit the look of their home.
The Clopay Website
Not only can you view Clopay’s entire collection on their website but here you can also find an ideas book and a buyer’s guide. You can also compare doors on the site, so you can choose doors you’re interested in and then check them out side-by-side to see which one will work better for your home.
As you peruse the web for great garage door ideas, you’ll need a place to keep track of what you’ve found. Pinterest is our favorite way to organize garage door photos and inspirations. It’s easy to navigate, and as you build your Pinterest board for garage door ideas, you’ll get cued into what others put on their Pinterest boards, too, which will give you even more inspiration.
That’s right. Inspiration can be found just outside your door. Take a look at the homes in your neighborhood that you love and check their garage doors and what you like about them. You’ll notice that some of the best-looking houses on the block are the ones with garage doors that work with the look of the home.
