Sometimes the easiest way to add value to your home it just to upgrade your garage door but that doesn’t mean you have to replace it or buy a new one. We challenged Marc to give this ugly, old garage door a DIY update. Here is how he accomplished a fresh, new look:
1. A Fresh Coat of Paint: The door was primed and painted in a crisp, modern colour. (Arcade White by Sherwin-Williams)
2. Updated Hardware: Choosing the right hardware can give your garage door a high-end look without a high-end budget.
3. Add Decorative Hardware: Adding decorative pieces to the garage door will give you door a custom look.
4. Update the Siding: Marc choose to update the siding on the front of the garage. If your siding is still in great shape, you can get a fresh look by painting out the trim or replacing damaged trim as well.
Marc’s Tip: The biggest thing to remember is that when you are creating an outdoor color scheme you want to create contrast. If you are paying for updating something, if you’re changing a door, if you’re changing a garage door, or even just updating it, you want to make sure people notice. Creating contrast will create a visual focal point.
