The most popular colors are ones you’ve probably seen on thousands of homes: variations of white, such as bright white and cream, as well as tans and lighter tones. If you’re going for a common look or just want a simple approach to your garage door color, light white or almond is your best bet.


When it comes to exterior design, a general rule of thumb is to have a little bit of contrast against the rest of your house. Putting the same colors next to each other can look strange, so be sure to break it up with different colors instead of having the same color door as the exterior of your home.

If you’d really like to stick with one color, use different shades of that color. For example, if your home is tan, try going with a bright white to make your garage door pop or select a deeper tan for contrast.


colors for your garage doorIt’s best to stick with the same color theme for the exterior of your Maryland or Delaware home when choosing a garage door color. While you don’t want it to be exactly the same, you should stay within the same color family. If your home is made of dark brown stone, try a tan or light brown garage door. This will keep your home looking uniform and buttoned up so it’s visually appealing.


While it’s ultimately your decision, garage doors typically look best when neutral colors are used. It’s true that some people like a pop of color with the front door of their home, such as a bright red or a bright blue, but because your garage door is a lot bigger, this can make your home look funny.


You don’t want to choose a garage door that will match the overall color of your house, but it can create a stunning look when matching the garage door color with small accent colors that are used in your home. For example, some people like to match their garage door with the color of their window shutters or their front door. Because the shutters don’t take up a lot of room and are only a small area of color, having the garage door match is a great idea. And if you can see both your front door and garage door from the road, matching those colors looks nice as well.
