How do I Pick the Best Color For My Garage Door?

Normal 500 word garage door blog. Resource:


Having the right color of door for your garage door can really make your home stand out. Here, at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair, we are ready to help with any questions you have. We are dedicated to helping all our customers with any garage door service you need. 

Finding Inspiration 

You may check out some sources online or even take a drive through your neighborhood and see what color jumps out to you. Paying particularly close attention to the color the home is in contrast with the garage door also makes a difference. This can help you get some ideas of what kind of color combination you like if you haven’t already decided. 


How To Choose The Best Color 

Two factors to consider are if you want the garage door to blend in with your home or if you want it to stand out. You can do like suggested above and get ideas by checking out online sources or taking a drive. 


You may also consider if your home or the garage door has accents and their colors. The idea is to coordinate your garage door with your home. If the colors don’t complement each other, they can be an eyesore and bring down your overall property value. 

What Color Is Your Home? 

To complement the color of your home, you will want to go with a color that is the direct opposite for the garage door, if that is your goal. For a white house, you would choose something darker like black for a complementary color. If you want to blend in, you would choose a white color for the garage door as well. 

Painting the garage door is all about finding the balance you wish to find between the house color and the door color. A wood stain door also seems to be popular and can really match many color schemes. 

Some Do’s And Don’ts When Choosing

Do: Choose a color that complements the exterior of your home.

You don’t have to be too “matchy-matchy”, but a nice complementary color is ideal. If you can’t decide, you can always choose to go with neutral colors. 

Don’t: Be too trendy that it looks “over-the-top”

Bright colors tend to be overcasting to the home’s design. 

Do: Feel that it can be okay to add more accent colors.

There is no hard and fast rule that states you have to choose one main color. Accent colors can come in many forms.

Don’t: Make your garage the focal point of your home. 

Your garage door can make a statement without being the center of attention. 

Do: Stick to one main color.

Overly bright colors can make your home seem dated and turn away potential buyers. 

Don’t: Match your front door to the garage door color. 

Since your front door is usually where you want the main focus to be, it isn’t a good idea for the garage door to be the same color. This can take the focus off where you want it to be.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
