Simply put – the white garage door is outdated. There are new designs that offer much more than you could imagine for a simple garage door. As you are browsing for the perfect design you will find unique applications, numerous styles and even more colours. For 2018, here’s what you can look forward to.
Everyone knows the familiar garage door design from the past 10-20 years. Designed to be as unobtrusive as possible; colours are dull and styles blend into the architecture of the home in a most unremarkable way. Fast forward to the present time and garage doors are actually the center piece of the exterior in a home; curb appeal means something these days. Bold colours are one way to make a statement and add personality to the home’s design.
Wood is Back
Wooden garage doors were all the rage before being swiftly replaced by fibreglass. In 2018, however, wood will continue regaining its popularity and you are bound to see it more. It is definitely something you will see with current trends combining both natural and synthetic materials.
Technology has permeated every facet of modern living and the garage door hasn’t escaped. From smart phone controls to doors that can sense your car approaching and open up, there are multitudes of new features you didn’t know you wanted or needed. These styles have increased the utility of the garage door, prompting homeowners to upgrade.
Bigger, Better Windows
Windows were one of the defining trends for garage doors in 2017, and this will only continue through 2018. The garage is no longer a dimly lit mysterious part of the house. The natural light brought in by more and bigger windows has consequently diversified the purpose of the garage and made it a friendlier place. In fact, garage doors made almost entirely from frosted glass are increasingly popular for the lighting, privacy and modern feel they provide.
The garage has the potential to function as something other than a place to park the car and store garden tools. It can be designated as a play area for the kids, or a workshop, or any number of other creative uses; it’s totally up to you! For this reason, homeowners want a garage that is habitable all year round. Insulated garage doors offer a four season solution.
There are plenty of new styles of garage doors available incorporating superior quality, impeccable style and interesting functionality.
