Looking to increase the ROI on your home improvement projects this year? According to the new 2018 Cost vs. Value Report from Remodeling magazine, an upscale garage door replacement is the best value out of the 21 mid-range and upscale remodeling projects evaluated. Here are the top five trends to look for in 2019:
Bold colors is a quick and easy way to really make an impact on your home’s curb appeal. Your garage takes up over 60% of your home’s front. An eye-catching color to complement your home is a nice touch to make a statement in your neighborhood.
The color to look for in 2019? Black. While some may think black is a strange choice for a garage door, this sleek color is one of the leading design trends in the industry right now, You can also choose a darker color to make your garage door stand out from the rest of your home.
Full glass doors and window panels are a great way to add style to your garage door this year. This is an easy way to let light into your garage and will make it seem much larger. You can also choose different styles and tints/frosting to protect your privacy while increasing your curb appeal.
While energy-efficiency and insulated doors were big in 2018, they will stay in the top in 2019 as well. A well insulated door with a high R-value will help keep the heat in during winter and out during the summer. Not only do insulated doors regulate temperature and lower energy bills, but an they also help to keep your garage quiet as the sides of the door sections adhere to the insulation found inside rather than the hollow sections of a non-insulated door.
The Smart Home craze has already taken over America, so it comes as no surprise that we will be seeing many garage doors operating with this technology in 2019. Doors will be equipped with Wi-Fi connected openers and homeowners will be able to operate their garage door remotely from your phone. Gone are the days of sitting at work thinking, “Did I remember to close the garage door when I left this morning?” This technology will also allow you to grant temporary access to people coming in and out of your home.
Classic styles will remain as a leading trend in 2019. There are low maintenance alternatives to those of you who love the look of wood doors but are worried about the upkeep. Carriage house doors can add style and vintage flair to increase your home appeal without compensating in terms of quality.
