What are the Trendiest Garage Door Colors of 2022?

Choosing what color to paint your garage door can be more complicated than selecting the door itself. 

However, another factor in choosing a color that people don’t think about is what is in style. Good garage door colors capture attention, tying the aesthetic of your house together. At the same time, lousy garage door colors can derail the look of your home investment.

At Overhead Door Company of Dodge City™, we understand choosing a color is essential. That’s why we’ve put a list of garage door paint colors trending in 2022, so you can make the right decision or fix a bad one.  

You Can’t Go Wrong with White Paint!

Timeless is in, so homeowners can never go wrong with painting their garage door white. White paint never goes out of style—hence why many people use it for a timeless look. But the true power of this color comes in its ability to match. White will match with any color or esthetic the dominant color of your house incorporates. 

It may seem strange, but there are different colors of white that garage doors can be painted. Here are just a few of the tones to choose from when seeking your timeless 2022 look:

  • Cream
  • Off-white
  • Alabaster 

Other Timeless Colors

Timeless doesn’t have to mean white paint! If you think that color is too dull for a garage door, there are plenty of other paint options you can go with that will be in style during 2022. 

If you don’t want to go with white, other garage door colors you’ll see in 2022 will be:

  • Black
  • Bay
  • Navy
  • Taupe
  • Gray

Combination

There is always the option of combining white paint with traditional color schemes. Overhead Door offers a wide variety of garage door colors that feature white trims!

For example, white/gray, white/clay, and white/green give your garage door the best of both worlds when featuring not one but two timeless colors. 

Wood 

Don’t want to go with a traditional paint color? Timeless doesn’t mean only one of the above. Wooden garage doors are, and always will be, in style—which means they certainly will be in 2022. Here are some of the wooden garage door colors and finishes that we offer:

  • Mahogany 
  • West Cedar
  • Smooth Plywood
  • Roughsawn Plywood
  • Knotty Cedar
  • Hemlock 

Don’t want a wooden garage door but still want the look? A variety of our steel, fiberglass, and vinal have finishes that can mimic the look of that material! Overhead Door offers a variety of stained finishes on our doors like Mahogany, Honduran mahogany, Oak, and Red Oak.

Which Garage Door Color is Right for Me?

A good rule of thumb is to match the garage door paint you use with the dominant color of your house. If you have a green place, a good option for painting your garage door will be. . . green or white (because white goes with everything)! It’s that simple. 

Of course, there is always room for a little more creativity when working with the favored, timeless color schemes of 2022. This comes in the form of trims that can be chosen, specifically in white—do you see a throughline here? 

For this example, we’ll stick to our example of a house with a primary color of green. To match this, you could select a green door with white trim!

Garage Door Facts

Many people take it for granted, even though life would be difficult without it. They use it every day, yet they only think twice about it—when they open it and close it. Can you guess what we are talking about? Probably, since you’re on our website. But, if you somehow still aren’t sure, it’s the garage door!  

The garage door serves many purposes that we don’t stop and take a minute out of our day to appreciate. It protects our cars from unsavory weather. They seal our homes, keeping intruders away. If chosen correctly, garage doors can even be a significant selling point for a house when it comes time to put it on the market. However, people still don’t know many things about this important home feature. Here are a few facts you might not know about your garage door! 

The Garage Door is probably the most Popular Entrance to Your Home

Over 65% of people use their garage door more than their front door. Think about it! How often do you use your front door if your garage connects to your house? Exactly! All the more reason to appreciate the role your garage door has in your life. 

Modern Garage Doors can last more than 20 Years, but . . 

. . . Regular maintenance is required! 

What does this include:

  • Making sure that the moving parts of the door are correctly oiled
  • Keeping bolts and screws tightened
  • Sealing against wind and moisture 
  • Keeping rollers in good shape 
  • Tracks aren’t bent or warped
  • The torsion spring is adjusted correctly 

The list keeps going, but you get the idea—putting in the work to maintain a door takes quite a bit of time and effort. Lucky for you, one call to Overhead Door of Dodge City™, and our technicians can make sure everything is working correctly with one easy-to-make appointment.

Garage Doors really do Sell Your House!

Yes, we talked about this in the introduction, but did you know that most realtors, on average, will recommend people replace their garage doors before listing a home on the market? If you think about it, the garage door is one of the first things a person sees when looking at a house. 

Investing in a garage door that is in-style, well-made, and suited to the look of your house will always bring a significant return on investment. It may even be the deciding factor between if your home sells or your neighbor’s. It could also be a contender in raising your asking price, as garage doors are an essential home feature, especially in colder climates. 

The First Modern Garage Doors were Invented in 1921. . . by Us! 

C.G. Johnson invented the first upward-acting garage door back in the roaring 20s—now a century ago. He rode the momentum from the popularity of his invention to found what would become the Overhead Door Corporation, which is now Overhead Door! You can check out more about our history here

Give Us a Call! 

It’s easy to take the modern garage door for granted. It only has two functions—opening and closing. But it turns out those two functions mean a whole lot more to us than we realize. They can mean the difference between selling or not selling a home. They also serve as the most-used entrance to the place we feel most safe and comfortable—home. 
At Overhead Door, we created and developed the first of these doors back in the 1920s, so we see it as our responsibility to help people with anything they might need in regards to them. Because to us, they aren’t just a door; they’re an Overhead Door.
