Wouldn’t it be nice to have your garage door the color you want it? Maybe your garage door’s color is so worn that it just doesn’t flow with the color of the rest of your house anymore. How about those garage floors and walls? We will make a bet that you’re sick of looking at their blandness by now. That is okay because we have a few tips and trick to spice up your garage door and your garage in general. Some things are not as simple as they seem. This is definitely one of those things. You certainly do not want to paint your garage door and regret it later. That would cost you time and money to repair. Not to mention staring at the wrong color until it is fixed.
First, The Garage Door Itself
Actually, before you even consider painting your garage door… Consider whether it needs to be replaced first. Don’t slap a new coat of paint on a rusty old garage door, unless you really like the color of rust. Why? Because rust will come back out through the paint after a short period of time. Then you consider the color. The color should flow well with the rest of your home. Don’t paint your garage door a light green if your home is a darker shade of tan.
Garage Door Floors!
Did you know that painting your garage floors have a few benefits? First off, it definitely will look better. It raises the value of your home. Did we mention that it protects the concrete of your garage floors? Yeah, that is a big one, too. Also, you can have a unique pattern painted onto your garage floor. Some of you southerners out there could even have a camo green painted on it! Though, that might not match the rest of your garage or home too well.
Paint Those Walls!
What would the point of the rest of this be if you didn’t paint those garage walls? Sure, you can stick with that bland white, but it still needs to be done. Keeping your walls in good shape is something this does help. It also looks better for all you folks who like hanging out in your garage with the garage door wide open.
Make Sure It All Looks Good Together
Don’t get cute and paint the walls one color, the garage door a completely different color, and have the floors done with camo or something. That looks weird. It’s not good for the value of your home. It will cause you more trouble later on. You want the colors you choose to meld together perfectly. This might mean longer decision times, but it will be worth it in the end.
