It is 2022 and a lot of people like to ‘change’ things around in the new year. Is your garage door one of the things that’s on your checklist that needs to be replaced or upgraded? If you are looking to upgrade your existing garage door, you have got several options.
Having a professional company install a new garage door can not only change the appearance of your garage, but also improve the overall security, especially if your current door is significantly old!
Here are some of the top garage door trends for 2022 that our experts at The Garage Door Repairman have identified:
A Splash Of New Colour
Did you know that you could completely change the look of your garage door without replacing it by using coloured paints? A painted garage door can assist and bring a new look to your home if you keep the colour scheme similar to other areas of your house.
White or light coloured garage doors have always been favoured over the past couple years, providing that elegance and simplistic look to your garage door and is still an excellent option in many circumstances, but darker shades are in favour for 2022.
A very bold and strong colour choice, black is on trend and appreciated for its modern and classy appeal, very easy to match with almost any colour and goes well with any garage door material you choose. Another benefit with this colour is that it won’t show dirt or wear and tear as easily as light coloured door
Choosing Durable Materials
Over the last couple of years, more people are considering garage doors that are durable and provide longevity. Here we’re talking about two different type of doors: steel garage doors and wooden doors:
Steel Garage Doors
Steel garage doors have been known for their aesthetic appeal, overall durability and build quality. They are also available in a variety of styles, texture and colours. Steel doors are a good choice if aesthetics are important to you, and the garage will be used mainly for storage rooms.
Wooden Garage Doors
Wooden garage doors are also quite common, they provide a different aesthetic appeal compared to steel doors and give a house an elegant and more vintage look. They are more eco-friendly and can be very customisable. Available in several different designs, wood types and unique personalisable options.

Customisations are available with different options for design patterns and a variety of colours to satisfy your individual needs.
