Are You Painting Your Portland Home? Don’t Forget Your Garage Doors!
Posted by Sam Sundeleaf on Monday, June 26, 2017
Exterior painting is the Number 1 curb appeal boosting powerhouse at your disposal.
There’s just no doubt about it. A high-end painting process can transform tired, worn, compromised surfaces into healthy, beautiful assets in a relatively short amount of time.
As you plan your painting project and collaborate with your pro of choice, we would encourage you to ask about painting or refinishing your garage doors. Many homeowners don’t even consider this option, living with unsightly doors that stick out like a sore thumb, especially if the surrounding surfaces are freshly painted.
This leads to an important question: what color should you choose?
Choosing a Paint Color for Your Garage Door
- Your first option is to simply refresh your existing color or finish. A professional painter can help with this task, making sure the right products are used for optimal performance.
- You also can take advantage of resources like Houzz.com to check out what other homeowners are doing. This is an ideal way to think outside the box and get inspired by options you might never have encountered otherwise.
- Would you like to minimize your garage door? If so, we recommend painting it the same color as the body of your home. As an added benefit, this will make your home look larger from the street.
- Why not make your garage an eye-catching accent color? You can do this by painting it something different than what was applied to your house, perhaps matching shutters or trim instead. Just remember, it’s important that your color of choice connects with your home in some way, and doesn’t totally stand out as an island.
