Nautral Style Shows Up Strong in 2017 Garage Door Trends

Whether you are building a new home in Sioux City or enjoying an established house in Yankton, you probably have a garage door that is taking up a large portion of your home’s exterior. Often the first thing visitors see when they arrive, garage doors have several chances to make a big impression—and they often do. 

As we close 2016, it’s worth noting that garage doors have had the privilege of many styles since their invention 95 years ago. The upcoming 2017 garage door design trends continue to show us that there is very little a garage door can’t do to improve the function and curb appeal of a home. 

Get Ahead of the Curve.

Arched garage doorways soften the look of these faux carriage doors, which give the appearance of traditional doors, but actually roll open in overhead door fashion. This allows for increased customization and personalization, without having to re-invent the garage door opener. 


Imitation is the Best Form of Flattery

As we said in our recent garage door style blog, the use of wood lookalikes will also be an increasing trend in the coming year as more and more homeowners capitalize on its natural warm tones while making use of the resilience and low-maintenance of steel.

Embracing the Open Floorplan 

While our Siouxland climate may not see this trend taking over our living rooms anytime soon, we do love to see garage doors in unexpected places. Look for increased insulation improvements in our aluminum and glass garage doors so that they can achieve this versatility in all parts of the country.

Home Sweetly Colored Home.

As homeowners start seeking to separate themselves from the cookie-cutter development mold, one of their first exterior improvements is the addition of an accent color. This home’s bold trim paint and matching garage door unify the entire look in a stately way, taking what could be seen as a cry for attention and making it the start of a sweeping trend.
