From what we have found, sticking with a more simple exterior garage design is the best way to go. Your garage should complement your home's look while not taking away attention from it. We suggest choosing a softer grey or blue depending on your home's color scheme or something on the more neutral side. Another exterior garage idea would be windows or a unique door design to add some light and style to your garage.
As we get into this post, we will be sharing our top 15 exterior garage ideas that will help get your creative juices flowing. Sticking with a simple design will get the job done and help make your home look fresh. Without further ado, let's get this list started!
1. Double Blue-Green Doors
First up, we have this deeper blue-green painted double door garage that turned out amazing. This home chose to use similar colors in the gutter, tiles, and pavement that we are loving. Using a darker shade of paint is a great way to add color to your garage exterior without going overboard.
2. Light Grey With Windows
Next, we have this lighter grey painted garage exterior that has windows and a farmhouse theme. This garage feels very modern and on-trend and goes well with the stone exterior of the home. Light grey is a top pick of ours for a garage door color because it seems to go with any home design.
3. Rectangular Windows And Patterns
Sticking with a grey color scheme, we have this rectangular exterior design that feels modern. This garage chose to go with long reflective windows, and a similar pattern below keeps the theme cohesive and looks great with this home's exterior. We also appreciate the different paint colors used on this exterior that give this home a unique look.
4. Spanish Blue Flair
Next, we have this colorful Spanish-looking garage that stands out on the list. The blue garage exterior and red tile roof complement each other perfectly and give this home a tropical look. We suggest trying this idea if you are looking to add some tropical flair to your home's exterior.
5. Light Beige Farmhouse
Another exterior garage look we are loving is this soft beige farmhouse design. This garage is on the more simple side but does a great job of blending into the rest of the home's exterior. Adding a contrasting door handle is a great way to add some color to your garage and also comes in handy if the power's out.
6. Large Brown Wood Look
Here we have a larger garage exterior idea using a brown wood door design. This garage has a rustic look to it that we like and blends well with the home's stone exterior. Another detail to note would be the aged-looking metal window frames that make this feel even more authentic.
7. Matte Black Modern
Coming in at seven, we have this ultra-modern matte black garage with stunning windows. This garage design works well with the home to give off a contemporary aesthetic that doesn't feel too cold. We especially like the ground-to-ceiling windows that add some light to the darker colored look.
8. Ambient Backlit Design
Next up, we have this eye-catching garage exterior using a backlit door that is a favorite on the list. Not only does this design look super high-end, but it also provides much-needed light in your driveway at night. There is nothing worse than pulling into a dark driveway at night, so this is a great way to solve that problem.
9. Classic Wood Stable Doors
Following a more traditional look, we have this beautiful wood garage idea. This exterior has a stable look to it and goes well with the home's brick design. This is an excellent option for anyone wanting a more classic-feeling garage design.
10. Forest Green Accents
Coming in at ten, we have this suburban forest green garage exterior that pops in this home. Going with a bold color is not always the perfect idea for your garage, but it works well here. We would suggest choosing a darker color similar to this design if your home is needing some vibrance.
11. Reclaimed Wood Rustic Look
Here we have a reclaimed wood garage exterior idea that fits well into this home's design. The uneven stone siding looks terrific with this style door, and we also appreciate the rustic overhead lighting above the garage. If you are going for a reclaimed or rustic look, this idea may be perfect for your home.
12. Modern Natural Wood
Another wood-themed design we love would be something similar to this garage idea. Using a natural wood wrap or vinyl on your garage is an easy way to spruce things up and give your garage a modern look. We also like the matching wood overhead and modern exterior light fixtures.
13. Tan Squared Pattern
Next, we have this neutral garage exterior idea that is perfect for a simple look. Going with soft nude or beige paint and a simple square door pattern is easy to work with and will look modern and elegant. We also want to note the darker door handles that catch the eye and don't feel bulky on the garage door.
14. Camouflage Doors
Here we have a modern and discreet exterior idea that works to camouflage your garage door. This design is very sleek and has an upscale vibe to it, which we like and blends perfectly with the home's exterior walls. This design is ideal for those wanting a non-obstructive garage that seamlessly blends into the rest of your home.
15. Off-White With Greenery
Last on our list, we have this gorgeous off-white garage exterior with vines growing up the sides. Adding some green to such white space is a great way to get some color and test your gardening skills. We suggest training your vines to grow up and over your garage to achieve a similar look.
Our Final Thoughts
Whether your garage exterior needs some love or you are planning out your new home, you've got plenty of great options. The best way to start your project is to choose a paint color and design that will go with the rest of your home's exterior. We recommend going with something simple and neutral and working up from there. From uber-modern glass garage doors to classic wooden designs, your garage says a lot about your home. Remember to add some light and greenery to your garage exterior and have a little fun with your paint color if your home needs some.
