2016 is still in its infancy. If you’re planning to make some improvements to your home this year, you’re wise to become familiar with what’s trending now! Here are the top five garage door trends that have already proven popular so far this year:
While it’s true that traditional steel garage doors never go out of style, they typically don’t draw much attention to themselves. If you’re hoping to make a statement in 2016, consider a contemporary garage door made of aluminum and glass. If your home has a modern look to it, this upgrade will certainly add to its aesthetic appeal.
Some houses have a more traditional look and homeowners want to accentuate this with wood garage doors. The only problem is that wood is more expensive and requires a lot of upkeep. Fiberglass and steel garage doors can be finished to look like wood for the aesthetic you want without the cost or maintenance requirements.
This architectural touch makes a big difference. From the outside, accent windows add an extra flair that dresses up your home just the right amount. From the inside, windows allow light to enter so your garage isn’t perpetually dark. Large enough windows sometimes eliminate the need to turn on the light and help save energy. With special glass designed to obscure the view, you can enjoy these benefits of accent windows without sacrificing privacy.
When you picture the average garage door, what color comes to mind? If you’re thinking of white or tan, you’re right—these are the most common colors for garage doors. Leave these bland choices behind in 2016 and opt for a garage door that better coordinates with the rest of the colors of your home. You might install a garage door in the same color as your front door or window trim to make your home look more put together.
