Get Inspired By These Garage Door Designs

Looking to give your home's curb appeal a boost? Consider upgrading your garage door. This feature can make up a third or more of your home’s front façade, so swapping a basic door for a garage door design with more character will have a huge impact on its overall look and feel.

Garage doors come in a wide range of styles, materials and colors. Take your home’s architecture into account when choosing a new door. Carriage-style garage doors, designed to resemble the doors of old-fashioned horse-drawn carriage houses, are a popular choice for traditional homes. For a more modern home, aluminum-and-glass doors are a sleek, striking option.

If replacing your garage door isn’t in your budget, try our easy ideas for upgrading it in a weekend or less. By adding a fresh coat of paint and new hardware, you can customize a plain door in no time.
