Things are constantly changing and evolving in today’s society, whether it be fashion, food, or furniture. Some products come and go while others tend to stick around for years. Garage doors are the same way, trends will arise with new products and improvements. Below is a list of the 9 trends to be on the lookout for in 2019.
Garage doors are often the first thing people see when they look at a house. They take up a good amount of space and provide a focal point for homeowners to discuss. By adding color to your door, you can draw more attention to that area of your home as well as make a statement. When choosing a color, think about darker earthy tones of blues, greens and browns. These will enhance your home’s curb appearance and make it stand out from the rest on the block.
In recent years windows have become really popular for garage doors and they continue to grow in popularity in 2019 with an increasing list of options to choose from. The windows will not only brighten the interior of your garage, but brighten the outside as well. There are options of tints and opacities, so you can choose the option that best suits your needs.
Continuing with added options, adding a natural stained wood finish to your garage door can bring out more classic beauty that people love. They often are even more energy efficient too.
Taking a look at the past has never been more popular. The Carriage House doors are perfect examples of this trend. They are nostalgic, but still have superior insulated steel construction to achieve a blend of both elegance and strength.
You can now control your garage door with your smartphone. This add-on provides the convenience of having access to open your garage from your phone while still maintaining security. The OHD Anywhere® is compatible with all Overhead Door brand operators and a variety of other manufacturers as well.
In recent years garage doors are trending larger. You may only need so much space for your vehicle, but some homeowners are choosing taller and wider doors. Doors that are bolder and larger often help improve curb appeal as well. Also, if you are building a home from the ground up, it’s beneficial to build a larger door from the beginning, than to outgrow in the future. You never know where you might be, or have, in 5 to 10 years.
A lot of homeowners are boosting their appeal with garage landscaping or curbscaping. This includes garage arbors, added greenery, lighting, or new improvements to your driveway.
Garage doors that are energy efficient are typically insulated. This means that the door will keep your garage cooler in the hot summer months and provide a barrier and keep heat in during the cold winter months. The temperature of your garage very much affects the temperature of your home, even more so when a room in your home shares a wall with your garage. Additionally, heating and cooling systems don’t have to work as hard, which will save you money on bills.
In the end, all of these things are really up to you. It is your door and you are the designer. Be creative and do what feels right for you and your home.
