As homeowners strive to improve the look of their current homes, the garage has become a regular target for renovation/upgrading. Homeowners are realising that incorporating unique designs into their garage doors gives the home a modern look and attractive touch.
Gone are the days when all garage doors were simple white structures that opened up using a manual mechanism. Nowadays, people are experimenting with colours, shapes and sizes. Customisation is becoming increasingly prevalent, and multiple elements of technology are being infused into garage door designs.
So, what can you expect garage doors to look like in 2018? Here's a sneak preview.
Introduction of technology
As technology continues to revolutionise home accessories, the garage door has not been left behind. In recent years, homeowners have enjoyed automated garage doors that can be opened/closed by simply pushing a button.
For 2018, you can expect these technologies to advance to more control of garage doors from an application on your smart phone. Not only will you be able to simply open or close the door remotely, you will also be able to monitor energy consumption and predict when the doors will require maintenance in advance.
Wood grain doors
Wooden doors are rising in popularity because of their natural look and fit for the home. Wooden garage doors offer a timeless feel to the property, and modern designs can use wooden panels that are almost as durable as steel.
There are also unique graining patterns that can be infused into the wooden door design to breathe a touch of uniqueness and elegance to the home.
Gone are the days when the inside of garages would be dark, lonely and underutilised spaces. By adding windows to the garage door, you can let the sunshine in and transform the garage into more space for the home.
There are many design options for including windows in garage doors. Consider a vertical arrangement to get a gradual increase in light throughout the day, or a horizontal arrangement to mimic a typical indoor space. You can also customise your windows with a selection of tints, colours, and sizes.
Bold colour designs
In the past, most garage doors were designed to be plain and to attract minimal attention. Simply put, the garage was not supposed to stand out from a distance. In current times, the garage is becoming a centrepiece to the exterior of the home.
You can expect people to use more bold and attractive colours that draw attention from a distance. This means shifting from plain white shades to brown, grey, blue and black.Share
