I need some opinons on a garage door colour.
Im stuck between surfmist, wallaby and monument.
surfmist- Is trim colour and our suburbs fence colour
wallaby- is our roof colour
monument- is our front door colour
i found a visulizer online that gives a good idea of the difference but i just dont know what to do.
driveway is to be decided in future
render colours are colorbond jasper and taubmans taupe grey.
the door is going to be monument it just looks lighter
i appreciate any feedback the house colours (besides garage) are pretty much set in stone.
The photo with monument looks beautiful
I like garage doors to match wall colour and in this case taubmans taupe grey.
Need help deciding on a splashback tile!!
Need help deciding which colour leather for offcie chair
Need help on garage door colour by tomorrow! Anyone?
Help! I need to paint this house but I can't decide on colours..
i prefer the lighter colour that matches the walls and makes the house feel wider and would also choose taubmans grey for the garage door
All options work. What is most important is how it makes you feel when you drive up to it. The house needs to make you feel comfortable and happy.
I think the surfmist works best in that it doesn’t make a feature of the garage and ties in with the rest of your home. It will also heat up less and keep your garage cooler.
Definitely Monument, surfmist sticks out too much and definitely makes it a feature.
Without confusing things too much , is it worth considering a cedar garage door and entrance door ? That would bring in some warmth and natural elements , and would look a step up from the 3 options you have suggested .
Thanks for all the comments. we orginally had caoba as our garage but to keep within budget so we could keep other things we had to axe the garage. my first choice is surfmist and my partner is monument 😂 i just worry that the monument will stand out. since our suburbs darkest roof colour allowance is wallaby.
My next suggestion was going to be terracota for the roof , terracota for the garage door , citrus orange for the entrance door -- I'm guessing I won't be moving to your suburb then . . . . . . .
Dark colours recede. Surfmist stands out more than monument.
But having said that Sufmist won't look bad if everything else is freshly painted and there are no "dirty" cream or off white colours around.
How much Jasper are you having on your facade? Is it just that one pillar? I feel that's a very small area to have a single colour on. But I'm not terribly observant so might have missed more of it
I don’t think your picture example is a true representation of what Monument will look like in real life. In real life it is a darker colour than what your pics are showing so I’d skip Monument altogether. I agree that the Taubmans grey to work with the render would be great but it won’t be an option as it’s not a standard Colorbond colour. So my two cents worth, is to have the garage door in Wallaby and upgrade the front door to timber.
