Garage Door Tips to Improve Curb Appeal

Garage Door Tips to Improve Curb Appeal in Sacramento

Many neighborhoods in the Greater Sacramento area look similar. Your garage door may be the focal point of your home, depending on how it was built. One way you can improve curb appeal is by making some changes to your garage door. Below, LMS Garage Doors provides a few garage door tips to improve curb appeal. 

Upgrade Your Garage Doors

If you have an older garage door, you may want to consider garage door replacement. Upgrading your garage door can completely transform your home. There are so many wonderful options to choose from these days. You can choose a traditional or modern garage door, or whatever you want for that matter! This will set the tone for your home. Here are a few things to consider when designing your new garage door:

  • Window panes
  • Patterns
  • Vertical lines
  • Barn door style
  • Material
  • Insulated or Uninsulated

Color Contrast

Is the color of your home the same color as your garage door? If so, consider adding a pop of color. This color contrast can also improve curb appeal. If your home is a neutral white color, consider a deep brown garage door. Your home will stand out from the others in the neighborhood. 

Pro tip: Many people believe that the garage door should match their home’s front door. This isn’t always the case. In fact, matching your garage door to the front door can be quite difficult, and it limits your possibilities. Contact LMS Garage Doors in Sacramento to set up a garage door design plan for your home. You’ll be able to pick which garage door best suits your style. 

Accessorize

A carriage house garage door has unique features. The multi-pane windows and additional details make a true statement. If carriage house garage doors aren’t your style, consider adding some accessories that can better complement your garage door. For instance, add some plants or shrubs on the sides of the garage door. You can also add a decorative trim to make more of a contrast. Your options to accessorize your garage door are endless.

Exterior Lighting

Don’t necessarily want a new garage door installed? There are plenty of other ways to improve curb appeal. If your exterior lights are outdated, consider upgrading them. This small project can make a world of difference. Plus, it’ll only cost you a few hundred bucks. Make sure to purchase exterior lighting that matches the color and style of your home.

Some people install straight-up ground lights in their driveway. Lighting the sky isn’t practical, but it looks great at night, especially in modern homes. Uplighting creates intriguing shadow and light patterns on trees, bushes, and plants and can even be used on hard surfaces.

Adjust Your Front Door

If you made the decision to upgrade to one of our Sacramento garage doors, we may recommend painting or replacing your front door as well. It does depend on the condition of your front door. A relatively new front door can be left alone. But a new front door will look more balanced and inviting. Plus, the front door of your house doesn’t have to be boring. You can make it beautiful and functional.
