So you have decided to update the look of your home and you have to decide on paint colors. You’ve heard that homes look best when you match the colors of the front door and the garage. Now you find yourself standing outside, staring at your house, and wondering if it will really look that bad if you don’t.
Do I Have to Match My Garage Door to My Front Door?
Well, no you don’t but there are some great reasons to choose the same color for your garage and front door. Choosing the same color for both doors can tie your exterior together and give it a uniform look. This will help to give your home have a balanced appearance.
You want your home to have curb appeal and this is a simple way to bring a cohesive look to your home. It is important to keep in mind the architecture of the house and how the sun will affect the color you choose. It’s a good idea to paint swatches of the colors you are considering on both doors to make sure that the colors will appear the same during different times of the day.
Can Have A Red Front Door?
Sure, if that is what you want. Choosing a bold front door color is a great way to add character to the front of your home. Just make sure that your front door color choice is complementary to your exterior, trim, and garage door colors. Be careful choosing the bolder color for your garage door as it may overwhelm the front of your home.
Another choice to consider is painting your garage door the same color as your home. This can make your home appear larger. You should also consider what other features around your home will be drawing your eye. If you have a vibrant garden or a stone facade you may want to choose colors that will not compete with it.
How Do I Choose A Garage Door Color?
If you are beginning to feel overwhelmed by all the choices, don’t be. If you are already thinking about a bold front door color then you already know you are just not into matching doors. You can grab a color wheel and start seeing what colors work together and give your home the character you crave.
If you want the exterior of your home to blend into its surroundings then choosing the more uniform look of matching colors is a great way to help achieve that. Many people also choose to have a garage door in simple white. Let your home’s style lead you to a color that will look great and match its personality.
