By / 10th May, 2017 / Garage Door Tips

Take your garage door from drab to fab! Give your plain-looking garage door a makeover this spring, and see how one small change can transform the entire look of your home. All you need are a few tools, some creativity, and a couple hours of time, and your garage door could breathe new life into your home’s entire exterior design. Here are some ideas to help you get started.

1. Create a Carriage Door Look

Carriage garage doors look great with most homes, especially those with traditional or colonial style designs. Creating a faux carriage garage door is relatively easy, so long as you get the right accessories from your hardware store.

Most home improvement stores like Home Depot sell magnetic carriage door accents and carriage door handles. They usually come together in a kit. Pick out a set you like, and then use a straight edge and a pencil to mark where you’d like the pieces to be installed on your garage door. This helps to ensure the hardware lines up correctly.

After adding the carriage door hardware, take a few steps to look at your garage door. Make sure the pieces are lined up correctly. If they’re not, straightening them out shouldn’t be a big deal, since they’re magnetic. Once you’re happy with the hardware’s placement, congratulations! You’ve just given you garage door a brand-new carriage look.

2. Frame Your Garage Door with Plants & Flowers

With a few beautiful plants, you can turn your garage door into a stunning outdoor centerpiece. This could be as simple as adding potted plants on either side of your garage door. Or, if you’re feeling fancy, you can line the entire driveway with plants like roses, tulips, daisies, or lavender.

Many homeowners frame their garage door with a trellis and climbing plants like honeysuckle, wisteria, or California lilac. Deciding which plants are best for your garage door will depend on personal taste and how much maintenance you’re willing to put into your garage door garden. If you need help choosing flowers or plants to frame your garage door, we recommend contacting a landscaper for advice.

3. Replace Your Current Garage Door

There are many ways to make over your garage door, but sometimes it’s best to replace it, especially if it’s old, outdated, or no longer working properly. You should also consider getting a new garage door if the style is completely out of sync with the rest of your home’s exterior. Either way, your local garage door company can help you select a garage door with the right style and material for your home.
