One of the most effective ways to make your house have more curb appeal is to improve the looks of your garage. An easy way to do this is to make sure that your garage has panels that are appealing and complement the look of your home. There are four major types of panel types that you can choose from:
Flush panels: These types of panels are flat, thereby sitting “flush” to the rest of garage. They stand out from the rest of the garage partially because they are slightly textured. They are a nice touch if you want to add some subtle differences to your garage doors. These panels will look interesting without distracting from the overall look of the garage.
Long raised panels: In contrast to flat panels, long raised panels rise up from the surface of the garage door, adding depth to the look of a garage. As the name suggests, these doors are longer than typical doors.
Short raised panels: In a similar manner to long raised panels, short raised panels add depth to garage doors with elements that come up from the surface of the garage. Unlike long raised panels, they are significantly smaller, often being square in shape. Because of the sometimes intricate designs, they can be great additions to garages attached to Victorian-style homes.
Painted panels: When you need to add a little bit of “wow factor” to your garage, one of the best ways to do it is to add painted panels. Along with buying panels that were pre-painted, you can add paint to plain panels yourself.
