2019 Garage Door Trends

Victorian Residential Home with Wood Carriage House Style Garage Doors

Do you want to revamp your home according to the latest design trends for 2019, so you can enjoy your space more or boost your ROI when you sell? While many homeowners focus on updating interiors or choosing bold materials, colors and landscaping for the exterior of their houses, they fail to refresh the appearance of their garage doors. Garage doors can occupy up to 40 percent of a home’s exterior, and they’re largely responsible for adding curb appeal, value and modern aesthetics.

In 2019, many designers and manufacturers are looking to elevate the appearance of garage doors — transforming them into an important, dramatic and visually stunning element of your home. Update your home’s exteriors and be the envy of your neighbors with one of these popular 2019 garage door trends.

Clopay Color Blast® Garage Door Paint System

The Clopay Color Blast® program will allow you to complement the color scheme already on your building or home. It enables you to choose from an array of color options from Sherwin-Williams®, then provides excellent adhesion on a variety of different materials, including plastic, steel, aluminum and vinyl. The result is a selection of your choice, outstanding finish and even — with some colors — solar reflective technology.

Modern Materials and Styles

Many older garage doors were available in dull whites and constructed with galvanized steel. Today, you have more material options to consider than ever for your garage door installation. With the right garage door materials, like aluminum, wood, glass, steel and faux wood, you can totally update and transform the appearance of your home.


By adding window inserts to your garage door, you can add warmth to the exterior of your home, modernize the overall design and let in pleasing natural light. Garage door designs featuring windows have become increasingly popular over the past several years because of their clean lines and dramatic appearance. With window inserts placed in your garage door, you also have design flexibility to suit your daily needs — choose from different sizes, tinting and opacity for privacy. You can also choose select models with hurricane-rated impact glass if you want added protection.

Natural, Warm Wood Construction

Choosing wood as your garage door material provides your home with numerous design options, unmatched protection and durability and a warm, inviting appeal for your home. Wood doors are available in more modern designs and can be customized to match your home’s architecture.

You can also opt for steel doors with a faux wood overlay — giving you the classic beauty of a wood garage door without the added upkeep and cost.

Color Variety or Bold Black

With a contemporary style, your garage door will be transformed into the focal point for your home. For 2019, let your home and garage door stand out by applying a fresh and bold color like blue, red, green, deep brown or black. While black may seem too daring for many homeowners, it’s an incredibly popular color choice this year. A black garage door will make your home remarkably modern and adventurous — plus, it conceals dirt and adds depth to lighter-colored homes.

Our Modern Steel­™ collection garage doors are also available with a range of options that will be able to match your tastes and complement your home’s existing aesthetic. These durable and beautiful steel-panel garage doors will enhance your home’s curb appeal, whether it’s contemporary, mid-century modern or something entirely different.
