This can cause a general feeling of drabness for your entire home, especially if your garage door is easily visible from the curb. Transform your garage door and boost the functionality and style of your home with these modern garage door tips from the garage door experts at Carroll Garage Doors.
Consider who you want to appeal to
When selecting a garage door, you’ll be amazed by how many different styles are available. That can sometimes feel overwhelming, but if you narrow down the field by taking into consideration the style of your home and who you want to appeal to, it’ll really help.
For example, if your home is over 20 years old, a more classic style will probably fit the bill. Carriage-house and other traditional styles are often the most requested garage door styles because they’re excellent for older homes and appealing to just about everyone. If your home has more contemporary and modern style, we recommend picking a garage door with clean, straight lines and darker colors, which are super popular right now.
