Color coordinating you garage door color with the rest of the house

colorful-garage-doorWhen people want to sell their home, they usually spruce it up with a new coat of paint. Many color conscious people ask whether the front door and the garage door should match. This seems like a good idea but coordination is not the only factor. For instance, if you have a front door that is a bold color like red, painting your garage door read will make it look conspicuous and probably draw attention away from the other architectural features that you will want to accent. It  might be OK if the garage door is on the side of the house. Most homes come in a three color scheme, one color for the outdoor wall, one for the trim and another for shutters if it has them. it would be advised to limit  the garage door color to one of the more subdued colors in the scheme.
