Harmony with the look of your home

Your garage often is at the front of your home and is something that everyone sees! Creating a seamless look between your home and garage means your home will look harmonious, from the colour to the style this will really make the look of the front of your home come together.

Homeowners put a lot of thought into the front door of their home because they’re aware that everyone who passes by, sees it. Your garage door, which is more prominent, should receive the same attention. Let your front door set the tone for your garage door by closely matching it, or even have the option of upgrading your Garage Door and Entrance Door with matching colours and accessories. Matching Garage Doors and Entrance doors create a beautiful harmony for your home, not only increasing curb appeal but possibly adding value with extra security and a modern look.

Colour means everything

You may think that matching your garage door to blend in with the colour of your house would make it almost disappear and look as if it is part of the home, however we think that it detracts from the appearance of your home, our team of Garage Door experts are on hand to show examples of how a garage door can transform the look of your home. With options from steel to timber there is something for every house! Timber doors can really improve the look of a house and make it look more expensive. Our manufacturers offer many colours from the classic standard white which is ever popular to sage which fits in with the neutral trend many homeowners have gone for inside the home.

Timber Side Hinged Garage Door

Being a renewable resource timber is more eco-friendly than any other material for your doors, along with being an eco-friendly option a timber garage door is timeless. Timber doors look and appeal is unmatched, we believe timber garage doors are among the best options for your home due to longevity, uniqueness, and security. Timber is a beautiful natural building material and is it always worth remembering that images in brochures, on websites or photographs of timber garage doors you have seen and like may not always be reproduced the same in another door. This is because natural graining, knots and shading will always vary from one door to the next and is highlighted more on lighter colour finished doors.


It’s all in the detail

Some garage doors are very customisable with options of windows, hardware, and a choice of beautiful colours, you are bound to make an impact with the front of your home. Dress up the front of your home not only by adding a new modern garage door, enhance the space with fall potted plants and up down lights to really make your garage door a feature. Decorative stonework and lighting can transform the look of your garage from the outside and paired with a beautiful Garage Door from The Garage Door Centre you will be sure to have people gazing in awe at your home.
