There are a lot of factors that go into picking the best color for your garage door, but we’ve narrowed it down to the most important: siding material and siding color.
For instance, a grey house with wood garage door is by far one of the most beautiful color combinations. Take a look at our garage door color selector to help figure out what color decision is best for your garage and your home!
Vinyl paneling is a common residential exterior that can come in a large variety of colors. For homes with this exterior, the color is a bigger factor than the siding material, so drop down to our “Home Colors” section for more input.
Homes with wood paneling on the exterior that isn’t painted over follows similar principals as other homes with brown exteriors.
Homes with visibly wooden exteriors often have a more rustic, even cabin-like, aesthetic that can be enhanced by a good garage door. With these homes, garage door style is also important.
You can stick to the wood look having a walnut brown color and get a wooden garage door as well. Otherwise, brown or white garage doors can pair well with wooden homes. For more color in your home’s exterior, greens, reds, and blues can all work with wooden homes. Find what shade works for you!
Brick homes, depending on how vibrant or dark the brick is, can pair well with garage doors that are white, beige, brown, or even a dark blue. If the brick is a lighter, more muted red or mixed-colors, a green or even a dark blue garage door would look great.
In general, the redder the brick, the more muted or neutral the garage door color should be. For example, a darker blue that’s more subtle and not a bold vibrant shade will usually look better with highly-saturated red bricks. Lighter and mixed bricks have a lot more options and varieties when it comes to choosing garage door colors.
Stone (including stucco)
As with homes with beige or other neutral sidings, homes with a lighter, stone exteriors have a lot of color options (though they always look good with white). Your color palette will change depending on the color of your stone or stucco exterior: is your stone more grey? Or beige?
For stone homes that are a lighter grey, a blue or green garage door, of light or dark shades, would pair well. Dark grey can also be a good choice if you want a more neutral exterior aesthetic.
Lighter, tan stones could be complemented by a brown or red door instead. In fact, it also improves the curb appeal of the house. If the coloration of your stones is less saturated and vibrant (a more light, muted color), then consider a blue or green garage door instead.
