Siouxland homeowners, and homeowners throughout the country, are trading in their white raised panel garage doors to ones featuring wood,They also aren’t shy about making their garage doors a statement piece in their curb appeal, a design shift that certainly makes us happy.
Here are some more of the 2017 garage door trends that have us pretty excited.
Garage Doors Are Making An Even Bigger Impression In 2017.
Large garage doors are taking hold of home design, not just because of their functionality, but also because a larger garage door allows for more creative expression and unique design. And with more homeowners using their garages for more than just parking their cars, having beautiful, moving walls is a great addition to their overall living space.
They Are Also Thinking Outside The Box.
Who says garage doors can only go on garages? We’re seeing more and more new home designs feature garage doors instead of windows for exterior facing rooms. With today’s advancements in insulation, materials, and windows, these transparent walls are a great addition to living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, and bedrooms, especially when you’ve got something lovely to look at.
Let There Be (More) Light.
In addition to the fully transparent and translucent garage doors climbing the popularity list, traditional garage doors are also featuring larger windows along their top panel. This helps let in more light, thus making the garage more comfortable and cost-efficient during the day. We love the way these vertical windows look on this wood garage.
Technology Continues To Open Doors.
Over the past few years, we’ve seen an incredible advancement in technology and the Internet of Things. With so much connected to our smartphones, we now have the ability to monitor and control our homes in ways our parents only dreamed. Today you can open and close your garage door, monitor its position, and check who opened it last, all from the palm of your hand. Look for this technology to get even more user-friendly, especially as garage door openers introduce laser parking guides, additional safety sensors, and even quieter operation.
Given the choices in design, materials, colors, and accessories, look for 2017 to be the Year of the Garage Door. We’re excited to help create this growing statement piece for Siouxland homes and look forward see what spin we can add to the design mix. We can’t wait to see what you bring to the equation!
