Garage Door Trends for 2017


Already in 2017 we have seen an increase in the use of garages as multi-functioning spaces. From workshops to offices to home gyms, the garage is being used more and more for purposes other than storing a car. The growth in garage door styles and designs available reflects this trend. Here are some of our favourite options in case you were thinking of giving your garage a makeover too:

Back to timber

This year, it seems that the wooden door is making a return. People are opting for this more natural and homely looking material due to the welcoming effect it creates and its ability to blend into natural surroundings. This kind of door can last an incredibly long time if it is properly treated and maintained.

Bigger windows

Another trend in 2017 is the incorporation of more windows within people’s garage doors. The benefits of including glass within your door include the light and airy effect they help create. This means the space looks bigger and is particularly popular when the garage is being used as a hobby or workshop where natural light is a must.

Brilliant screens

Lifestyle screen doors are also big news in 2017. They work within an existing garage door to help create a bright environment whilst providing protection against dust or other things which may be otherwise blown into the garage. Again, these are popular with people who are utilising their garage for activities like as arts and crafts where daylight is important.

Bold colours

In 2017 subtle shades have been replaced by statement colours. People are choosing stand out colours that match their homes rather than always opting for more neutral tones.
