What a Difference a Door Makes on the Appearance of your Home
We’re always talking about the fact that a garage door can account for a third of the overall appearance of your home. It’s something that can be difficult to understand or appreciate when you see the door every day, lift it, lower it, walk under it. In other words, like anything else that’s a big part of your life, it’s difficult to have an objective view of your garage door and how it affects the appearance of your home.
So we thought we’d take a look at a few garage door ‘before and after’ shots to give you an idea of what’s possible.
Garage Door #1
For our first before and after, we thought we’d take a look at how a garage door can almost completely change the style of the home. In the ‘before’ image, the clean, white door matches the soffit of the home for a pleasant straightforward suburban look.
In the after shot, with just a new door and a tree trimming, the house now seems to have a more modern architectural style.
Garage Door #2
Who would think you could improve on the great looks of the door in this ‘before’ picture. But we chose this one to show you how a door can be made to blend in with the style and colour of the rest of the home.
Matching the look of the door to the rest of the house takes the emphasis off its large white area of the home and makes the home seem more ‘whole’, and bigger overall.
Garage Door #3
There’s no profound shift in architectural style here. No making the home look larger. But we wanted to include this one to highlight how, with just the addition of windows, a garage door can add so much more character to a home’s appearance.
