Is your garage door one of the last things you think about when it comes to updating your home? Maybe you’ve never thought of it because if it’s not broke, don’t fix it, right?

However, a new modern garage door can increase the curb appeal of your home and complement your beautiful home and yard. Plus, your garage door is a focal point on the exterior of your home.

Home design trends are changing constantly. Here are the garage door trends for 2017.

Add some colour

Choosing the perfect garage door colour can totally transform the look of your home.  If you want your garage door to stand out, installing a deep red or green can make it really pop. Grey is a hot colour for 2017 so if you prefer a more neutral colour, using a great grey shade or bold black will look great.

Whatever colour you decide on, choose a colour that complements the colour of your front door and trim on the exterior of your home.

Smart homes

We now spend so much time on our phones, and home technology is following suit. Smart, programmable thermostats and even garage door openers.

Liftmaster has cool tech options for you to add MyQ to your existing garage door opener so you can control to open or close your garage from anywhere at any time. You also get real-time alerts when your garage door is open. With this Liftmaster option, you can also upgrade your garage door opener to MyQ technology.

Low Maintenance

Time is one thing many of us don’t have enough of, so low maintenance homes are key. Investing in a vinyl or aluminum garage door is wise. Vinyl is lightweight and is more resistant to dents, peeling and rotting.

Aluminum garage doors are lightweight, affordable and very low maintenance. Aluminum doors are able to stand up against snow and salt which we deal with often in the Northern Ontario climate.
