The pandemic has forced people to spend more time at home and rethink our homes as never before. As our calendars have now switched to 2021, it gives many of us hope for a renewed sense of purpose and greater clarity on what kind of garage door we’d like to have at home. We’ve made a deep research to spot the rise in several particular garage door trends which are expected to boom in 2021.
Flush Mount Doors
Flush mount garage doors can blend in your facade with the cladding of your choice to creates a seamless appearance to the front of your home. Flush finish means the surface of the garage door and the external wall surrounding it are on the same plane.
The flush mount garage doors can be clad with the building’s exterior materials, including timbers, composite timbers, metal, aluminium composite panel, acrylic, to name a few. The integrated cladding materials make the door appear to be part of the building’s wall system, or make a statement with your personal moving work of art. You will only notice it when the door is open. They are perfect for an architecturally designed buildings giving the exterior cladding a continuous look and essentially making the door invisible.
Barn Style Garage Doors
Barn style is in. A farmhouse styled garage door is a good choice for your home to carry the barn theme. This style gives you many colour options for layering textures into your home designs. You can contrast harsh brick walls with a natural timber colour garage door, or paint your garage door a with one of the colours from the decor colour scheme. One of the most popular barn door designs is the simplistic X style. The X is often used over the entire door. It’s also used on one half of the barn door, either the top or bottom portion. The iconic barn door X brace design adds an additional depth to an existing decor. This kind of contrast is an excellent way to create greater interest and drama in your design.
Natural Timber Garage Doors
Timber is a natural insulator. It helps you save on energy costs when heating or cooling your home or business. Unlike aluminium or other materials that transfer heat ultra-efficiently and are like insulation in reverse, timber helps your home stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. In terms of 2021 trends, we’ll see natural timber garage doors gaining more popularity. Well-constructed timber garage doors, made from quality hardwood, will look spectacular in any home and provide a refined, sophisticated ambience that not only feels good but adds value to your home.
Black on Black
For the past decade, white used to rule the design world, but black is now gaining popularity. Black garage doors always look great with black walls. They’re wonderful at picking up other black accents of your home for creating a balanced look. If you’ve got a black wall, a black garage door will repeat the colour and give your home a modern, masculine feeling. If you want to downplay your garage door, choosing the same colour as your wall is an excellent choice.
