The Ultimate Garage Door Style Guide

In the past year, many of us have spent a lot of time at home, and to keep busy we started or finished off renovations and upgrades around the house, including adding or up styling the largest entry point of the home, the Garage Door.

When looking at styles and colours of garage doors, there is a long list to get through, and it can be overwhelming and time-consuming, so Steel-Line Garage Doors have broken it down to what garage door trends are expected to boom (or keep booming).


Timber and Timber Look

If you like the natural look and warmth that wood conveys, they can offer you a range of timber and timber look garage doors that can be matched to suit the design of your home.

The most popular Natual timber is Western Red Cedar – a lightweight yet solid wood that looks equally beautiful on an old or new home. Or, if you like the look of timber but prefer the strength of steel, Steel-Line has several options available, including DecoWood®, Unicode® LUX, or Colorbond® Timber Look garage door.


Hamptons Style

Hamptons style is ideal for creating a place where you can rest and relax. If you crave a calm and classic design that doesn’t need constant updating, this look is for you. Classics never go out of style. Hamptons style tends to be about classic colours rather than traditional. Therefore, white and its many hues are celebrated.


Flush Mount 

Steel-Line’s NEW Flush Mount Garage Door blends in your facade with the cladding of your choice to create a seamless appearance to the front of your home. Flush finish means the surface of the garage door and the external wall surrounding it are on the same plane.

The flush mount garage doors can be cladded with the building’s exterior materials, including timbers, composite timbers, metal, aluminium composite panel, acrylic, to name a few. The integrated cladding materials make the door appear to be part of the building’s wall system or make a statement with your personal moving work of art. You will only notice it when the door is open. They are perfect for an architecturally designed building giving the exterior cladding a continuous look and essentially making the door invisible.


Colorbond Steel

Enhance the aesthetic appeal of your house with a garage door that can blend in with any outdoor décor or architectural style. Steel-Line has a collection of classic Colorbond® garage doors to match your property’s personality and unique style. Choosing from the five stylish designs and then selecting the colour of your choice to dress up your home.

Offering their go-to neutrals and tasteful pops of colour, there is a colour to suit every style of home. Colorbond® minimalist neutral and natural tones are inspired by nature, as their names suggest.
