If you’ve seen one garage door, you’ve seen them all. Or have you? In reality, garage doors come in many different styles and these styles are updated every year. If you think about it, the garage door takes up a large portion of your house and should therefore receive some extra attention to make sure it is as attractive as possible. With that in mind, take a look at these six forecasted garage door trends of 2015.
1. Smart Garage Doors
You no longer need a garage door remote in each of your cars to enter the garage. Instead, install a smart garage door. The style of such garage doors is nothing less than sleek and modern, not to mention it’s a major convenience. These smart doors connect to the Internet, allowing you to open and close your door with a cell phone. They also involve quieter cables, provide battery backup, and use side-mount installation.
2. Unique Materials
Instead of going with the traditional plywood or single-layer steel that most garage doors are made of, use unique and attractive materials. The major trends in 2015 call for aluminum or brass coatings or glass-paneled garage doors, which offer an unmatched, sophisticated look.
3. Real Wood
Nothing is more classy than real wood garage doors, which is a major trend this upcoming year. For some homes, it’s the only option for the best possible curb appeal. However, authentic wood can be very expensive, so for those who want the look of real wood on a budget, steel carriage house doors are an excellent alternative.
4. Bold Colors
Plain white garage doors are a thing of the past. In 2015, garage doors call for bold colors that complement the exterior of your home. As you plan out the look of your garage door this next year, choose colors that will complement your home and yard for a unique, modern look.
5. Go Tall
Although you only need a certain amount of clearance for garage doors, taller doors can make a huge difference in the overall classy appearance of your garage. Tall garage doors are becoming a major statement piece for homes.
6. Design Your Own
No matter what the major trends are for 2015, nothing can beat your own customized garage door design that will perfectly complement your home.
