Is your garage door looking a little worse for wear? Does it need a little bit of a lift? It goes without saying that your garage door directly influences the visual style of your home because it takes up about a third of a home’s face. Most people like to do home improvements without having to spend a lot of money. There are ways you can make your garage door look like new without having to replace it.
Garage Door Decorating Makeover Ideas
1. Add windows or accent panels to garage door– Most of the time garage doors won’t come with a lot of extras like colored panels, a mix of materials or windows. You can get a whole new look with vinyl accent stickers, faux windows and other low-cost items. Windows will let the sun shine in and they can give your home a personal touch. If you want to add real windows, then you’ll need the help of professionals to go over all the options available to find what’s right for you.
2. Add new garage door hardware– All it takes is a little hardware to give your garage door a new look. You can go pull handles, nails and clavos and even hinges to enhance your garage doors design. It can turn a plain looking door into a new one with a unique look and you can do it yourself!
3. Use a new garage door accent material– To enhance the appearance of your home you can go with a material that’s absent from what you home already has, like wood, steel or another material. You can add a new look by adding new details to reface your garage door. Try adding a strip of reclaimed wood or a stylish metal trim. Just make sure anything you do doesn’t interfere with the way the door operates.
4. Paint garage door– This is probably the best way to give your home a quick update. Just add a fresh coat of paint. If you make sure you do a good job it will look amazing, if you don’t, then it will look like it should have just been left the way it was. Make sure you have enough paint before you start. The amount you need will depend on how big the door is and what it’s made of. Wood doors will soak up more paint than an aluminum one. If you’re going with a totally different color, then you’ll need more to make sure the old color doesn’t show through. One gallon of paint should be enough, and you’ll have some left over to do any touchups down the road.
