Garage Door Colour Guide

One of our most common questions people struggle with is: What colour garage door should I get?

While colour and style are a very subjective choice there are a few common options to consider.

Matching your trim

It is quite commonly for the trim, fascia, guttering, flashing and roofing to all be the same colour.

Matching your Garage Door to this colour helps create a uniformity to your home and blend everything together.

Matching your cladding

This can be difficult to pull off due to the differences in house paint colours vs Colorsteel or Powder Coat colours. If planned from the beginning there are usually house paint colours that match the Colorsteel range. House paint colours have a much larger variety of colours and often 1/2, 1/4, 1/8th strengths. You can often get close to these with the range of powder coat colours but it is rare to find a good match for an existing colour.

If done incorrectly the difference in shades can be very obvious. We generally advise to stay away from a 'close enough' match.

If done correctly this can help your door blend in nicely with your cladding, allowing you to draw attention to other parts of the home. This can often look good with a timber jamb for a nice contrast.

Keep with the same colour palette

While trying to match the cladding with a 'close enough' colour is advised against using the same colour pallet is often a good look.

A lighter or darker shade of your roof, trim or cladding adds interest and depth to your home.

Contrasting colour

While blending in is always nice sometimes you want to stand out or make a statement.

A contrasting colour can look amazing and help make your garage a focal point of your home.

A black and white contrast is quite popular and can be paired with contrasting trim to help make several elements pop.

Red? Yellow? Bright blue? Purple? Gold?

Love it or hate a bold colour can evoke a lot of emotion.

If you want to stand out, or coming home to a bright colour makes you happy then this may be just what you need.
