5 Creative Garage Door Ideas

09 April 2021

When building or renovating your house, make sure you don’t overlook your garage door. One of the most noticeable features at the front of your home, your garage door doesn’t have to just be functional – you can transform it into an eye-catching feature and enhance your home’s aesthetic appeal. If you’re looking to make a statement with your garage door, timber-look features are a great way to go – consider these 5 beautiful options for a garage door that ticks all the boxes and adds beauty and impact to your home design.

Woodgrain-FInished Steel Garage Doors

While timber garage doors are beautiful, nothing provides security and strength like a steel garage door. Why not combine the two with a timber-look steel garage door? DecoWood® is the Super Durable™ timber-look finish that can recreate a beautiful timber appearance, minus the maintenance or weathering associated with real timber. DecoWood®-finished garage doors are available from Steel-Line Garage Doors.

Cladded Garage Doors

Want the appearance of a timber garage door but don’t want to replace your existing door? Want to extend the cladding of your house seamlessly across the garage? DecoClad® timber-look aluminium cladding can be used to clad your garage door for a beautiful natural appearance, and can also be used to clad the outside of your home for a seamless façade.

Batten Garage Doors

The batten has become a must-have for all modern homes. They are typically used to create a feature wall on the outside of a home or over windows – but battens are also taking centre stage as the hot new garage door feature. Batten garage doors can be used as part of a seamless overall façade, or as a statement all on their own, adding natural warmth and texture to your home design. DecoBatten™, the timber-look aluminium batten series by DECO, has been cleverly crafted to offer a lightweight, easily-installed option for garage doors. The unique two-piece QuickClick™ system allows battens to be easily snapped into place, concealing fixings for a seamless appearance.

Circular Tube Profiles

Love the batten look but want to try something a bit different? Tubular aluminium battens are fast becoming one of 2021’s biggest hits, following on from a move towards curved designs late last year. DECO can offer custom circular profiles for a unique garage door that makes a personal statement. Finished in the Super Durable™ DecoWood® finish for a realistic, low-maintenance timber appearance, DECO’s tubular profiles make a striking feature.

Recurring Motifs and Extended Designs

Keep your design style flowing through every element of your home. Use cladding on both your garage door and façade or soffit, to create a cohesive architectural design. Extending elements such as cladding or battens across the whole front of your house can also conceal your garage door, helping it blend beautifully into your façade.

DECO specialises in Australian-made aluminium building products and decorative finishes for effortless, beautiful living. DECO is an Australian, family-owned and run business that offers innovative Super Durable splashbacks, signage, cladding, battens, slats and decking.
