The same like our home interior, garage also needs our attention to be attractive and looks stylish that at the end will reflect to our house design too.
We must consider our garage not only from its functional aspect but also from aesthetic point of view. So that is not only protecting our car but also can make additional beautiful exterior for our house.
This time, we are not going to share about the interior but we will discuss some ideas of garage doors.
At least 4 main aspects we have to know when designing garage doors. If we concern about the detail or the materials of our garage door, then we can assure ourselves that we will safe more money in the future as no more extra cost we are going to spend for garage doors maintenance or replacement. Those for aspects are:
Select the material for garage door that suitable for the contour of our home area. We can select one of these three materials, wood, fiberglass or steel. Of course, each material has its own strengths and weaknesses.
Fiberglass and steel, no doubt, are the strongest material and more durable compared to wood. However, avoid using those materials if our home is just near the beach as the weather could make corrosion for the garage doors. If the material must use steel for example, then we have to add additional budget to laminate it with corrosion proof.
It will be different if the location is not in the beach area. Steel or fiberglass materials are highly recommended for its strength and durability.
The garage door must be stylish and attractive. Select the door that match with the exterior color, with our house door for example. It should be the same tone, the same accent, style and pattern. By this way, the garage door will looks harmonize and not creating any contrast to our home exterior.
The next aspect we have to consider about garage doors is its safety profile. This is very important point. Adjust the door size base on our ability to control it. The bigger is the door it means we need to have more control on our garage.
Design the garage door base on our lifestyle. For example, do not use glass materials even it is for glass door combination if we have small kids with us. They like to play around the garage and it causes the glass broken. Try to find another door material combination for our own safety.
