There are a few aesthetic considerations you may be thinking about when installing or replacing a garage door in your home, and one for many homeowners is matching the garage door with other major doors – namely your front entry door. Matching these two is a great way to achieve aesthetic consistency and curb appeal for your home, and there are a few factors to be considering if this is your goal.
At Crawford Door Sales, we’re happy to assist clients around Murray, Sandy and nearby areas with all their garage door needs, including many residential garage door options like steel doors, foam-injected doors and more. This two-part blog series will go over everything you need to know about matching your garage door with your front door, including all the key factors to keep in mind.
Naturally, one of the first and most important factors to consider when matching your garage door with your front entry door is color. You want to choose colors that complement each other and create an overall cohesive look for your home.
Some homeowners may opt for a monochromatic look, while others may go for contrasting colors. It’s important to choose colors that not only look good together but also fit in with the overall aesthetic of your home’s exterior.
One additional tip here: Do NOT choose a color that’s too close to that of the rest of your home. In fact, you typically want to contrast the color of your front door and garage door with the rest of your home’s exterior. This helps create visual interest and adds dimension to the overall look.
Another consideration when matching garage doors with front entry doors is materials. While it may seem like a small detail, the material of both doors can greatly impact their overall appearance.
For example, pairing a wooden front door with a steel garage door may create an interesting contrast, while matching both doors in the same material can create a sleek and modern look. Additionally, you’ll want to consider the texture of the materials and how they work together.
As you’re choosing your garage door and front entry door, you’ll also want to consider any accents or decorative elements that can tie the two together. Maybe you use a splash of color on both doors with a matching doorknob or hardware. Or perhaps you incorporate similar design elements, such as windows or panels, to create a cohesive look.
In part two of our series, we’ll go over a few other more detailed areas to consider here, including glass selection, hardware options and more.
