You can’t mistake the luxury and character of wood. It adds warmth and personality to everything it touches and frames in a home, particularly when it is used for garage doors. In this post, we’ll explore the various ways homeowners have capitalized on wood’s ability to soften, enrich, and define a home’s exterior aesthetic, especially when it comes to today’s contemporary leanings.
All Doors Lead To Wood.
This home does a beautiful job of tying in wood along all three of its front entrances, using the same stain and window pattern for each. The repeated use of the arches above each door also adds interest, as if inviting us to peek a little closer. You’ll see a lot more of that gorgeous honey-brown stain in 2017; it’s one of the best ways to add warmth to the cool gray color palette that is sweeping across the country.
Wood Makes A Good Point.
What’s a great way to warm up a house that is all angles? You guessed it: wood. The repeating vertical lines, squares, and rectangles of this gorgeous home would seem cold if not for the rich mahogany stain that tops the header of each window and dresses up the two single garage doors. The dark brown also plays up the green in the landscaping, creating a cohesive curb appeal that is sure to turn heads a full 90 degrees.
Wooden Garages Go Mod.
Who says wood doors are only for traditional homes? The misinformed, that’s who. Check out this ultra-modern home that gets a warm hug from a garage door that marries the rich character of wood with the modern lines and windows of a contemporary door. This door is showcases wood’s lighter side, and it’s all the better for it.
And They Keep Going Mod.
One of the modern home movement’s biggest achievements is embracing minimalism with a firm handshake. It isn’t about keeping things bare—there is plenty going on in the example below—rather, it’s about keeping things clean and uninterrupted. And the garage door shown here does a beautiful job of commanding just enough of the attention (isn’t it lovely?).
