You don’t have to spend a fortune to upgrade your home’s façade!
Whether you’re looking to give your home an upgrade because it needs one, or because you want to attract potential buyers, little tweaks and adjustments can boost its curb appeal and take it to the next level.
Let’s have a look at how your garage door can help with that!
Simple Ways Your Garage Door Can Upgrade Your Home’s Exterior
– A Coat of Paint
While most homes may have garage doors painted in the same color as the rest of the house, most designers recommend creating contrast in the shade by choosing a bold color. An ideal cost-effective solution if there ever was one, painting your garage door not only opens up a world of creative opportunities, it makes your home stand out more too!
Don’t have the time to paint it? Add some swanky potted plants or decorative artwork instead. A little bit of greenery and color goes a long way. Create a pathway up toward your garage door to bring the viewer’s attention to it. If you can’t find the right plants for your area, give the kids $10 and have them go nuts with the colors and paint and bedazzle. We can’t promise beauty, but the result will surely be unique!
– Light Things Up
Good lighting is a useful tool to accentuate the features of your home. Often overlooked, lighting features such as ground light and sidelights illuminate your home, creating more visibility, which is great for security purposes as well.
Invest in good lighting that lights up the driveway toward the garage door. That’ll make the path look more inviting and dynamic. For added features, use multiple sconces to highlight any special exterior features of your home, like windows or a small balcony.
Consider Replacing Your Old Garage Door
If you’re planning on selling your property, no amount of lighting or bedazzlement will help if you have an old garage door. Especially if it’s flaking around the edges or looking worse for wear, it’ll take house-hunters about eight minutes before they dismiss your home as an investment-worthy prospect altogether.
