When it comes to the curb appeal of your home, one area that is often overlooked is the garage door. The decision to make garage door improvements can affect the appeal of your home, especially if you are looking to sell.

If your garage door is facing the same direction as your front door, it can really impact the balance of your home’s appearance. Consider matching both or ensure they complement each other. A garage door can completely change the look depending on the style and what additional features you choose. When looking to replace your garage door, consider features like windows, color, and design style. 

Adding Windows

Adding windows to your garage door is all about the style and features of your home and personal preference. With that in mind, here are the pros of adding windows to your garage door:

  • Let in natural light. Letting in natural light will brighten up your garage and make it feel less dark and cold especially if you use your garage for more than just storage or parking your car(s). Many homeowners today convert part or all of their garage to a more useful space such as a recreation/workout space, craft & hobby area, or bonus room. 
  • Tie your exterior together. Adding windows to your garage door is a great way complement your home’s exterior and allows your garage door to be more of a design feature. 
  • Customize. Don’t stop at adding just windows. Consider window inserts and the type of glass. If you are using your garage as a bonus room, consider frosted or tinted glass.

Light Fixtures

An often-overlooked area for the garage door is the space around the door. One feature to consider is adding exterior light fixtures that complement your new garage door and the exterior of your home.

See the Door Before You Buy

When looking at a new garage door, many companies have a smart phone app you can use to mockup what the garage door would look like on your house. Use the app to experiment and try different options. You can typically change the color of the door, door style, see how the windows would look in a different section, add decorative hardware and more.
