Choosing your garage door colour and finish.

When selecting a colour for your garage door there are many factors to consider, find our top tips from our garage door experts at The Garage Door Centre to help you make the right decision. 

Coordinate your homes colour scheme: Consider matching your garage door colour to the rest of your house and its exterior features. Complimenting colours or matching colours can give your home a harmonious feel and appealing look. 

Consider the material your garage door is made from: Different materials may have specific recommendations for the suitable colours for example: timber garage doors can be stained or painted while steel doors have much more flexibility in the colour choices from manufacturers. Timber doors offer a timeless look especially on period homes. 

Reflect your style: Garage doors can be an opportunity to showcase your personal taste and style. Adding glazing options adds a unique look and has a plethora of options available to make it unique to your home. If you have an eclectic style you can opt for bright colours that stand out in the neighbourhood. Prefer a more understates look? Our options of muted tones and classic colours may suit your style if so!

Climate considerations: Darker colours tend to absorb more heat which may be a consideration in hotter climates whereas lighter colours can deflect the sun and keep your garage cooler although a good, insulated garage door will do both regardless of colour! For costal applications we recommend looking into aluminium options or composite which tend not to be sectional doors, our team will always let you know which doors are best for the environment in which they are to be fitted.  We would always recommend regally maintaining doors that are on costal homes to avoid salt build up and premature corrosion. 

Longevity and maintenance: Keep in mind that lighter colours may require more frequent cleaning and maintenance as they show dirt easier than darker colours
