For older garage doors, a fresh coat of paint goes a long way toward sprucing up the home's look. Many people prefer for their garage door to complement the paint scheme of their house, so they choose a neutral color that blends in. If you want to go for a bold look that catches the eye, consider painting the garage door in a contrasting color, like a bright red door on a tan house. This brings attention to the house as people drive by.
Adding landscaping around the garage door also helps to dress it up. Consider planting hedges along the edge of the door, and lining the areas in the corners with flowers and small bushes. Placing lighting next to the garage, like carriage lights or lanterns that automatically turn on when it gets dark outside, also makes the garage appear more welcoming. Consider adding more lights along the edge of the driveway or the walkway to the front door to continue the design throughout the yard.
Lights, paint and landscaping provide excellent options for those looking to spruce up their home on a budget.Learn more about Home Maintenance
