The attached garage on my home isn't used as a typical garage. Instead, it is used as an extension of our family room. Since we have six kids living in our not-so-big house, we have worked to transform the garage into a game room of sorts. One thing that I struggled with was keeping the garage door closed in the evenings to keep the bugs from coming in. This problem was solved with the installation of a garage door screen door.

Changing Your Garage's Curb Appeal

If you have a detached garage that is in view of those passing by, and you have recently given the exterior of your home a new look, you may want to consider giving your garage a pick-me-up as well. Most people will match their garage to their home, making it look as if it is a mini-version of the house itself. Here are some tips you can use to fix up your garage so it looks great next to your home's new exterior.

Upgrade The Rooftop

Even if you have not changed the roof on your home, you can easily make your garage a little more pleasing to the eye by adding a new coating of shingles. This will draw the eyes upward, away from the exterior. Shingles can be placed over the existing ones using roofing nails. This will also give your garage extra protection from inclement weather. If you don't have the time to add new shingles, consider using a commercial-grade cleaner to brighten your existing garage rooftop.

Change The Color

If you had used siding on the exterior of your home, your garage will look best if you do the same for its walls. If you cannot afford to purchase more siding, find an exterior paint that matches the color of your home's siding. Ask the service that sided your home for a sample piece of the siding to bring to a hardware store for an exact paint color match. If your home was painted, simply use the same color to revamp the exterior of your garage.

Add A New Door

Your garage's door is the focal point of the entire structure. If you had recently upgraded your home, you can make your garage look equally as nice by switching the door to one that is noticed. Consider putting in a garage door that has added windows to give it a homey appearance. Instead of sticking with a standard white door, think about matching the coloring of your garage door with the trim on your house. This will set your garage apart from others on your street.

Give It Some Decor

To make your garage look inviting, plant some flowers or place large potted plants along the sides. Add a decorative wreath along the top, centered underneath the eave. You could also place a sign with your last name inscribed upon it so people know who lives on the property.
