Boosting Street Appeal: The Importance of the right Garage Door Colour

Choosing the right paint colour for your garage door can significantly boost your home’s street appeal and make a lasting first impression.

It’s not just about aesthetics; the right colour blends harmoniously with your home’s exterior, reflects your personal style, and can add value to your property.

Here are some tips to help you pick the perfect colour for your garage door.

Choosing the best paint colour for your garage door can significantly boost your home’s street appeal

Choosing Dark Shades: Sophistication with Colorbond Monument and Night Sky

First, consider the overall colour scheme of your home.

If your house has a modern design with clean lines and a contemporary feel, darker shades like Colorbond Monument or Night Sky can add a sophisticated touch.

These colours provide a striking contrast against lighter walls, making the garage door a focal point without overwhelming the façade.

Darker colours also tend to be less prone to showing dirt and can make your home appear more distinguished and grounded.

Embracing Light Hues: Brightening with Dulux Lexicon and Colorbond Surfmist

For people who love monochromatic look and lighter shades, colours such as Dulux Lexicon or Surfmist can be ideal choices. Light colours make the garage door blend seamlessly with the surroundings, creating a cohesive look.

They can also make a smaller home appear larger and more inviting. Dulux Lexicon, with its crisp, clean white, gives a fresh and airy feel, while Surfmist offers a soft, coastal vibe that’s perfect for homes near the sea.

Considering Sun Exposure and Brighteness

It’s also important to consider the sun exposure of your garage door and how the colour will look throughout the day.

Bright Perth sun can make some white shades (for example Vivid White) very bright and hard to look at, if garage door gets full sun during the day.

We recommend always viewing paint swatches at different times of the day to see how the changing light affects the garage door colour’s appearance.

Colour Selection and Longevity

Some clients are worried about colour fading of darker shades.
