How To Spice-Up Your Home’s Garage Doors03/16/2014 Back To Blog
Before, the home’s garage door was perhaps the last item that homeowners paid close attention to. Most often, people look at garage door openers as items that protect the car or storage area, and other tools. However, these are often the first things that most people see when they visit a home, therefore decorating them should help to further enhance the home’s look and feel. Let’s take a look at a few creative ideas on how to spice-up our home’s door openers.
Paint The Garage Door With The Appropriate Color
A good idea for sprucing-up overhead doors would be to paint them with a color that complements the rest of the home. Try painting it with bright colors that are cute, and make the doors stand out. But before painting the overhead or roll up garage door with your favorite color, first remove any loose paint using a paint scraper, and then consider painting each panel with a slightly different color.
Decorate The Garage Door Opener During Holidays
If it’s Christmas, New Year’s Eve or Easter, you can liven-up the door opener’s look by covering the door with wrapping paper that’s appropriate for the occasion. If it’s Halloween, you could wrap the door with “Caution” tape, or place fake cobwebs, witches’ hats and other typical Halloween images.
Install Decorative Metal Handles
You could also add or install decorative metal handles and accents on your manual or electric garage door openers, which can be purchased at the nearest home improvement or hardware store. To keep the door opener in tip top shape, you can also weatherproof bare wooden doors with a weatherproofing sealant.
If you have steel doors, garage door repair Perris technicians suggest that you can keep these in good condition by removing any dust and debris with sandpaper. And when the door opener’s bottom seal gets damaged or worn-out, you could buy the replacements at the local hardware, and install them by yourself.
