As architectural styles have multiplied in the last decade, it’s become increasingly important to match your garage door style to that of your overall home. Thankfully, there has been a growing number of garage door styles and models to keep pace. Styles available can now include
You’ll want to pay attention to various aspects of your home to coordinate with. Consider matching the garage door and your front door. If your garage door has window, try to match them to the style of the rest of your windows.
Consider changing the function of your garage
If you are considering converting your garage into a workout room, office, or entertainment room, you’ll want to keep a few things in mind. First, this can be a great added value to your home to those who are looking for bonus space. However, it can also be a deterrent to those who value garage space for storage or parking their car.
To balance this out, don’t remodel the entry way. Keep your garage door in place. This will make it easy for the next owner to convert the garage back if they decide to.
