How to Choose the Right Garage Door Color

choosing correct garage door color

Many people wonder what color to paint a garage door, or ask if there are standard garage door colors that most people use. The truth is, you can paint your garage door any color you want to paint it, as long as you don’t have restrictions on it from your HOA or local government.

However, there are some rules of thumb to follow when choosing garage door colors. If you’re not sure what color to paint a garage door, here’s what you need to know.

Match Your Home

You can paint your garage door to match your home. Most homes have three colors: one main color, one trim color, and a third accent color. You can paint your garage door either your trim color or your accent color.

The color you choose will depend on how your garage door is situated in relation to the rest of the home. It may also depend on whether you need to use one or the other colors to balance the rest of your house, or if you have a distinct preference for one of those colors.

Choose Neutral

If you’re considering painting your house sometime soon and you don’t want to have to repaint your garage door, or you want to make sure your garage door will always go with your house no matter what, consider neutral garage door colors.

Some people prefer light neutrals, though you probably don’t want to paint your garage door a bright, pure white. Other people want to make a statement with a dark neutral, like a dark gray. Make sure your garage door color makes your current paint job look amazing.

Go Bold!

Some people who are wondering what color to paint a garage door are doing so because they want to have a bright, bold garage door. They’re wondering if they can pull it off.

The truth is, as long as your garage door doesn’t clash with the rest of the house, you can choose any color. Go with a red or a teal to make it stand out. You might want to match your garage door colors with your front door colors to make your house stand out even more.

Suit the Neighborhood

Make sure your garage door colors suit the area or neighborhood that you’re in. If your neighborhood is full of Craftsman homes, you might want to choose a more natural color than you will in a neighborhood full of modern homes. After all, you don’t want to stand out for the wrong reasons.
