Enhance the Look of Your Garage! | Raleigh Garage Door Repair
Are you looking to enhance the look of your garage this coming spring? If so, our Raleigh garage door repair team is here to offer you a few tips to help you plan!
The exterior of your garage is a great place to integrate landscaping. There’s almost always a nice spot for planter boxes on the windows or on either side of the garage doors. If you have a detached garage, the possibilities are endless. Oftentimes, you can landscape the front or side of your detached garage just as you do your home! Small trees and shrubs are great additions to the exterior of a detached garage!
Add a Porch
Detached garages are usually placed out of the way, toward the side or back of the home. Because of this location, it’s easy to add a porch (open or screened in). Adding a porch on to the side of your garage – even if it isn’t detached – is a great way to add a warm and inviting characteristic!
According to bhg.com, “With well-chosen materials and features, a garage can become a major factor in the overall design of a home.”
Especially when a garage occupies a dominate effect at the front of a home, you’ll have tons of visual opportunities to enhance it. Add a stone exterior, wooden carriage garage doors or a balcony to create interest and style! If your home is painted a lighter color, consider painting your garage a darker color to add visual interest. Thinking outside the box when adding style to your garage is key for creating curb appeal.
Exterior lighting is always a great way to enhance the exterior of your home. It’s especially beneficial around the garage area for more than one reason. In addition to adding interest, exterior garage lighting also offers benefits to those that have early morning or late night arrivals home in the dark. Be sure to add lights to the front walls of the garage, next to the garage doors, as well as a few lining the driveway and walkways. Also consider adding an automatic light that turns on as your garage door opener opens the garage doors.
Special Features | Raleigh Garage Door Repair
Adding a special feature to your existing garage to help enhance it is key. A weather vane on top of the roof ridge, window caps or a garage door that stands out above the rest of the enhancements will offer a personal touch.
