When you are ready to design a garage door, lighting is going to play a huge role in your design. The lighting you choose can really improve curb appeal. Your choices will need to blend nicely with your façade and landscaping to create a truly sensational impression. Let’s look at a few things you should consider when choosing your garage door lighting.
The House Aesthetic
The first thing you will want to consider is the overall house aesthetic. This means the overall style or impression that your home makes. You do not want your garage lighting to clash with the other style elements such as shutters, porch design, landscaping, other exterior doors, windows, etc.
Garage Door Style
Next, you will want to consider the current garage door style itself. Garage doors come in a variety of styles, and you want to make sure that your lighting meshes well with this style. If you are unsure of what types of lighting will flow with the garage door style, you can take pictures of your garage door to take with you to a lighting store. The professionals there will be able to discuss options with you. Our experts at Action Doors are also available to help you design or update your garage door.
You also need to consider exactly what your lighting goals are. Are you just hoping to add an aesthetic appeal, property security, or both? This will help determine which type of lighting you will need and how many fixtures you will need. Lighting for only security purposes is far different from lighting for impression.
Another aspect of choosing garage door lighting will be the technology you use. Today, there are so many options to enhance your lighting. You can control smart lights from your phone. Motion sensor lights increase the security of your property. You will want to consider which types of technology to incorporate into your lighting choices.
Another way you can incorporate technology when planning your garage door lighting is to use garage door design tools. Our Design a Door feature allows you to see how different design and lighting options might look on your particular home.
In addition to this tool, you can also call our team of professionals for help. We can evaluate your current door, discuss your goals and help you to choose the proper garage lighting for your needs.
