How to Choose Garage Door Colors

Consider the color of your home. Most people match the color of their garage door to the color of their house or the trim facia boards. Some people like to go from a white door to a black or dark brown door to make that contrast pop.

Remember that if you have an HOA, they may only allow you to have the two most common colors, usually white or almond.

The Importance of Color Choice

A garage door represents a substantial part of your home's facade. Opting for the right garage door color harmonizes with your home’s architectural nuances and boosts its overall charm. Take, for example, a transformation we orchestrated in Newport Beach: a switch from an uninspiring beige to a sophisticated dark walnut made the property a beautiful addition to the neighborhood.

Aligning Garage Door Color with Architectural Style

Selecting the right garage door color begins with clearly understanding your home's architectural design. Spanish-style homes, prevalent in our beautiful Orange County, benefit immensely from warm earthy tones or the rustic charm of vibrant terracotta, accentuating their stucco walls and tile roofs. These choices do not just pay homage to the architectural integrity but are also in harmony with our scenic landscapes.

Exploring Current Trends in Orange County

In Orange County's varied architectural landscape, we've noticed a preference for earth tones and neutrals, reflecting our coastal environment's natural beauty in garage door colors. Nevertheless, don't avoid bold colors, which can set your home apart, especially in more picturesque settings like Laguna Beach.

Selecting a Shade That Complements Your Home

Choosing your garage door color requires considering the existing palette of your home’s exterior, including walls, roofing, and trim. A contrasting yet harmonious color can accentuate architectural details, while a harmonious shade ensures visual coherence. The unique quality of natural light in Orange County also plays a pivotal role in how these colors manifest throughout the day.
