Top 5 Garage Door Trends for 2019

A garage door is an extension of your home and be used to compliment your interior. Your curb appeal can set the tone for the style inside your home. Take a page out of this year’s interior design magazines and apply it to your new Nova garage door with these top five garage door trends.

1. Bold Earthy Tones

Bring to mind sage, terracotta, deep asparagus, cloudy grey and muted dusty mauves. Trends are definitely moving away from the classic white and beige garage doors and tempting home owners to show off their personalities using exterior flair.

An earthy colour allows for a large range of colour options while still complimenting most brick colours. So even if you have an older style home, you can follow along with this 2019 trend without incurring major renovation costs.

Nova Doors works with Wayne Dalton, offering over 6000 colour options, so there won’t be any compromising on colour here!

2. Energy Efficiency

It may not be a word you would usually associate with garage doors, right? A shift towards a more eco-friendly home paired with the enduring love for energy bill savings makes installing a new, more efficient garage door a major trend this year.

A well-insulated garage door from Nova Doors will reduce the need to crank your thermostat in attempts to fight off that cold air creeping its way into your home through your garage. In most cases, the garage takes up about a quarter of your home, so you’ll definitely see those utility bill savings racking up while also reducing your carbon footprint.

3. Smart Home Control

Smart home everything! With smart home technology sweeping the nation, you can now take control over yet another part of your hone. A Wi-Fi enabled garage door opener means you can monitor your space with a phone, laptop or tablet. Keep in mind a garage door offers access to your car, home and family, so with technology like this you gain an extra line of security for your home and loved ones.

And in the true spirit of smart home technology, life is made easier. You can grant remote access for someone who may be stopping in to house sit, take out the dog or let in that family member that has forgotten their key again. We can install the Elite Series Liftmaster to take care of it all. We’ll be in and out before you know it.

4. Throwback Styles

That classic rustic trend that never goes out of style is still upon us. We’re seeing a lean towards old style garage doors in 2019, so you can still get that rustic charm with modern materials. Carriage house doors still take the medal for their enduring looks that compliment almost every style of home.

Wood is still sought after as well, but using a more durable material like fiberglass will give the warmth and appeal of wood without the cracking, warping and rotting. It’s a beautiful old school style that reflects respected craftmanship but is built to last much longer. Fiberglass is a lightweight, affordable and easy to maintain material that will give you the classic look you’re after. Dress it up with antique style decorative hardware and you’re good to go!

5. Custom Garage Doors

It’s becoming more and more common to live in a community of cookie cutter houses. Naturally, home owners want to break through that clutter creating a higher demand for custom projects. A garage door is the forefront of your house. It’s the first thing you see when you arrive home and the last thing you see when you leave.

We offer a build your own garage door service using quality doors from Wayne Dalton. Combine all the features you love in a door and let it welcome you home each and every day.
