Garage Door Colour Ideas for 2023
At first, choosing a garage door colour might not seem like a big decision. But with the wide variety of colours available to you in the modern era of manufacturing, you can quickly become spoilt for choice.
Not only can the colour of your garage door in 2023 help to tie the look of your home together, but it could also add value to your property if you’re keeping up with the latest design trends. That means that, whether you’re looking to stay or to sell, you need to choose wisely from a rainbow of options.
To help you get your new year off to the right start, we wanted to provide five garage door colour ideas that we think will be popular in 2023.
Go bold and contemporary with a black garage door
Sometimes it can feel like a big step to take up so much of your home’s facade with black. However, unless you have a particularly dark brick colour, there’s not much risk of it becoming overbearing. Instead, black can add sharpness to your home and can even make your garage stand out a little more. Black is also a colour less likely to discolour over time if well taken care of.
Overall, a black garage door will introduce a dramatic block of dark colour to what are ordinarily light and reserved homes in the UK. This trend is popular with contemporary builds that combine clean lines and sharp angles.
Refresh your home with a white garage door
When they say the classics are the best, they probably aren’t referring to white garage doors, but it does still apply. The reason you see so many white garage doors is because of their refreshing and bright appeal. Whether you’re looking to add a whimsical, coastal-inspired feel to your home or just looking to keep things clean and simple, a white garage door is an easy option.
Blending in with other white accents on your property such as your fascias, guttering or window frames, a white garage door will never look out of place on any property – traditional or contemporary.
Get sophisticated with an anthracite garage door
If you’re looking to go above and beyond the usual colours, anthracite grey is the ideal choice. A modern colour that offers depth and intrigue when compared with more basic colours, you can turn your home into a sleek and sophisticated-looking property. Plus, with this colour, your garage door won’t show dirt and grime as easily as lighter colours.
Because many homeowners are looking to accentuate their homes with different colours in window frames and fascias, an anthracite garage door makes for the perfect pairing.
Give your home a peaceful look with a green garage door
For those who want to be a little more daring in their choice of garage door colour without going too far, a green garage door is perfect. Lending your home a touch of colour from the natural world, you can select a green that works best with the rest of your property. From light and pastel greens to deeper and more vivid shades, you can create a classy and elegant home or evoke a sense of woodlands and forestry even in urban spaces.
With a little foliage added close by, you can achieve a harmonious front for your home with very little effort. While muted tones work well for traditional homes, more vivid greens are suited to contemporary homes where you’re seeking to add some character.
Soften and contrast with a grey garage door
If you’re not sold on the sleek and exciting anthracite grey, but still want the best of both worlds between black and white, why not look at softer and lighter shades of grey? You can find a variety of grey garage doors that help to blend in with your property, still achieving that easy-to-maintain colour that means you won’t be needing to sponge visible dirt away quite as often.
Sometimes, a statement piece isn’t the right choice for a home, which is where the stylish yet subdued grey can work really well. Suitable for almost any property type, grey garage doors give you a slightly less rich, and yet still fantastically practical option.
Tips for choosing your new garage door colour
- Consider the material you want – This will help you to narrow down your options for what will work and what is available when choosing a garage door colour.
- If you plan to sell, stay neutral Prospective buyers will want to imagine themselves living in your home, so keep things neutral in terms of garage door colour to help with this.
- Do you want to match your front door? Think about whether you want to match or accent your front door. For some homes, matching colours work well, for others it becomes overbearing if all elements of your facade are one shade.
- Keep your property style in mind Do you have a traditional cottage? A new-build home on a cul-de-sac? Or a modern, grand design in the country? Your choice of garage door colour should be informed by the style of your property to ensure it pairs well for the foreseeable future.
