Most homeowners make changes to their homes as time goes on. Staying up with current trends isn’t an absolute necessity, however, home improvements go a long way towards maximizing curb appeal. The sense of satisfaction in a beautiful home can’t be understated, especially with the garage door which accounts for up to 40% of your home’s façade. With that in mind, Brisbane and Bayside Garage Doors takes you through some of the latest exterior design trends that can help transform your home and give it the modern twist you’re looking for.

Experiment with Elegant Metal Finishes

Make a statement with your home’s exterior by incorporating trendy materials such as semi-precious metals. Bronze, copper, nickel, and iron are gaining popularity for home accents both inside and out, especially with garage door design. If you’re looking for a warm, elegant touch, designer garage doors with metal finishes may be the perfect upgrade for your home. After all, semi-precious metals develop a lovely patina over time, and there are also new applied metal coatings to give an existing door the look of solid metal without extra weight.

Going Dark

While lighter colours have typically dominated suburban streets, recent trends have seen some bold homeowners go dark. Darker colours such as charcoal grey result in a dramatic look for a house that is both modern and striking. If painting the whole house in a dark hue sounds a little overwhelming, you can still achieve much of what this approach offers by having eye-catching dark trim, doors or garage doors. Colorbond steel garage doors can be matched to complement other parts of your home, either by adopting the same colour or contrasting them. Shale Grey, Night Sky and Cottage Green are just a few of the darker Colorbond colour swatches to consider for a dark, dynamic garage door look.

Wooden Garage Doors

Timber-look garage doors offer an equally bold result while hinting at something more traditional. Although Queensland’s harsh weather may wreak havoc on natural timber doors and require more maintenance, timber-look doors are an excellent choice. They are sturdy, safe and secure, with highly customisable designs that resemble the natural beauty of timber, only the upkeep is easier. In cooler parts of southeast Queensland, timber-look garage doors may also be beneficial due to the option to insulate between layers. Get in touch with Brisbane and Bayside Garage Doors if you’re wondering whether this option may suit you.
