When it comes to creating more curb appeal for your home, one of the easiest and cost-effective ways to make it happen is by updating your existing garage door or by replacing it with a garage door that emulates your signature style. Looking ahead to 2016, All Island has put together a list of the top garage door trends of 2016 to get you inspired.
Smart Phone Operated Garage Doors. Thanks to LiftMaster’s newest garage door openers, you can now operate your garage door easily from your phone. The LiftMaster® 8550W Elite Series® Residential Garage Door Opener, the first with built-in Wi-Fi, lets you connect without any additional hardware.
All LiftMaster MyQ®-enabled residential openers allow you to control your opener from anywhere with a smartphone with the the free MyQ app, as well as from a tablet or computer. This offers you peace of mind for those moments when you worry about whether or not you’ve closed the garage door.
Bold Colors on Garage Doors. Garage doors offer you the chance to make a bold statement or to bring out the unique qualities of your home. Instead of sticking with the common tan or white garage door, consider painting it a bold color to add flair. Choose a color similar to your home’s trim, entry door, or shutters so that your garage door accentuates your home’s other features.
Faux Wood Garage Doors. If you’re looking to add elegance and rustic sophistication to your home, consider a faux wood garage door. Today’s doors are stunning and resemble real wood doors. The difference is that faux wood garage doors are half the cost of real wood doors and they last longer. Made from fiberglass or steel, faux wood garage doors are also great for an insulated, warmer garage that helps block outside noise.
Larger Garage Doors. As more homeowners recognize the value of garage doors to increase curb appeal, the trend to make a larger garage when remodeling or building your new home is growing.
