Having a garage is a great addition to your home. It provides a space for you to safely store things, including your car if you are so inclined. With the proper garage door, you can even have it automatically let you in whenever you need. If you’ve got a garage that you love, but you’re thinking about updating that garage door, you may find yourself surprised by the accessories available. Let’s jump in to some of the most popular ones that are available on the market today.
Trim And Moulding
If you want an aesthetically pleasing door, moulding and trim is the way to get it. These are used to lead the eye around and across the door and work well with house styles that also include these features. This accessory also has an additional function – it can be positioned over parts of the door where there are drafts to help insulate the garage.
The handles may not seem like an important part of the door, especially if your door has a functional automatic lift mechanism. They are still important however, to both the form and function of the door. If the door you’ve currently got is fine except for the handles, you can always replace them. If the door you’re thinking about buying has handles you don’t like, however, you might as well shop around till you find one that better meets your needs and budget.
If you love the look of side-opening barn doors, you can achieve that for your home with decorative hinges. They won’t make the doors actually function differently, but they can create the illusion of doors that open.
This may seem like an odd accessory for a garage door, but it can make for a very visually appealing look. Knockers are also useful, especially if you spend a lot of time working in your garage. Imagine that you set up a craft room or a workshop in your garage and you spend a lot of time there. If your friends come over and knock on your front door, you might not hear it, but if they know you’re probably in the garage they can come and knock there as well.
Opting for doors that have windows is a great way to increase the useable space in a garage. The windows let in light and warmth to make the space more comfortable and friendly. Generally windows are not something that you can choose to add to a garage door that is already installed. It is not impossible, but it is very difficult. But if you are buying a new door, you should definitely consider one with windows.
