As garage doors increasingly become a focal design point of homes, homeowners are considering the architectural elements of their home when choosing a new garage door. Take a step back from your home and look at it with fresh eyes. Notice the unique shapes of the windows, and let that inspire your garage door window selection. The color of the front door or the design of the windows all play a part in choosing garage doors. Even if your garage door faces the side of your property, repeating elements that appear on the front of your home can bring a consistent and complete look to your exterior.
If any windows on your home have an arched top, consider bringing that design to the top section of your garage door as well. While many garage door openings themselves are arched, adding an arched window to a square opening can bring an unexpected and sophisticated look to your door.
Front Door & Windows
Inspect your front door for design cues. Many homeowners match the color of their front and garage doors and consider the number of lites in the window. If you have 8 lites on your front door, you may want to choose an 8 lite garage door as well. If your front door has decorative glass, you may want to select a decorative glass type that mimics that design on your door.
Each home style is known for its unique features and design, from colonial to craftsman or mid-century modern. By matching your garage door windows to your home’s architecture and existing windows, you create a sophisticated and uniform look.
Whether you create a custom design to match the shape of your round top window above your front door or choose a stock insert to mimic the panes on your home’s windows, matching your garage door windows to your home can significantly enhance the curb appeal.
