How should you pair your entry door with your garage door?
Your entry door and garage door have a big impact on your home’s curb appeal. Whether for a new construction or a renovation project, pairing those two elements thoughtfully is essential, as it can really boost the value of your home. Wondering how to make the right choices? Follow these tips!
Type of configuration, finish, colour, with glass or without… There are are so many decisions to make when picking an entry door. The best tip we can give you for a cohesive look is to make your choice based on your home’s architectural style!
To guide you in this step, our designers have prepared a few door and doorglass options that may suit the look of your home. Check them out in the Inspiration section of our website, which we’ve divided into four styles: Contemporary, Eclectic, Nature and Timeless. Simply pick the one that best suits your house!
Contemporary : Subdued colours, straight lines, clean design and fine materials (wood, brick and stone) take centre stage.
Eclectic : Various styles, periods and materials combine harmoniously to create a one-of-a-kind construction.
Nature : Raw materials such as wood and stone are used to blend well with the surrounding nature. Rustic styles fit into this category.
Timeless : Minimalist architecture, symmetry, simple volumes and classic colours are used to make a house that never goes out of style.
The benefits of doorglass
In addition to letting natural light in, doorglass provides an opportunity to customize the entrance to your house (and to your garage). You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to glass type: clear, sandblasted, textured, cut, patterned, caming... And if you like the full-door look better, you can always go for side panels! Have a look at all the possibilities here!
Once you’ve chosen your entry door, you need to pick a garage door to match. Once again, you’ll need to think about the type of configuration, the finish, the colour and whether you want doorglass or not. Tough choice, you say? No worries! Thanks to our collaboration with manufacturer Garaga, finding the perfect match for your façade is easy!
