4 Creative Ways to Make Your Garage Really Stand Out

Do you feel like your home is boring? That it looks like every other house in your neighborhood? Here at Metal Barn Central, we have the perfect solution that will add value to your property and make you the talk of the town, in a good way; a steel garage. While most people choose to add landscaping, a paved driveway, or simply clean everything from top to bottom, you’ll stand out with a custom metal garage. We offer a large selection of custom steel garages to choose from, along with several other building styles. No matter what your needs may be, we guarantee you’ll find exactly what you need and more with us here at Metal Barn Central.

In this blog, we’ll be going over a few of our favorite ways to customize your garage and help make it stand out among others.

  • Add a Touch of Color

While neutral colors such as tan, beige, and sandstone may blend easier with your home scheme, they aren’t going to pop as other colors might. You don’t always want to perfectly match your home to your garage, but you still want them to blend well; this is what we like to call contrast. By choosing contrasting colors for your garage and garage door, you can add a little pizzazz to your home. For example, if you opt for a light gray garage, white or blue trim will easily make the building pop. Keep in mind, while choosing the ideal color combination for your garage building, you don’t want to choose colors that are so crazy your garage will stand out for the wrong reasons.

  • Choose a Unique Garage Door

Old, outdated, and off-color garage doors tend to make a negative impact on the way people see your home and garage; they can also decrease your property value. But by choosing a unique, custom garage door, you could be the talk of the town for all the right reasons! Well-chosen garage doors that blend well with your home scheme and the color of the garage itself can leave a lasting impression. While we offer colored garage doors in certain locations, you can opt for a frame-out and order a custom garage door after installation.

  • Light Things Up

Did you know that with proper lighting, you can make better decisions, think more clearly, and be more productive? Whether you plan to store vehicles in your prefab garage or make it a personal workspace, it’s important to have the perfect amount of lighting. You can also add some exterior lights to match those on your house. Exterior lighting can help draw attention to certain details on your garage as well as make your guests feel welcome. And if you prefer to save money, you could also choose to have windows installed as a source of natural lighting. This would also make your garage more appealing to the eye.

  • Windows and Walk-in Doors

You would be surprised at just how important a walk-in door can be. Not only can it add to the aesthetics of your steel garage, but it could save you quite a bit of money down the road. After using your garage door day after day, week after week, the chances of damages will rise. But to save yourself a headache and extensive repair fees, you can have a walk-in door installed as an easier access point. Place it on the side of the building to hide it from view or have it installed beside your garage door; the choice is yours.

Possible Applications for Steel Garages

Once you’ve customized your garage, how will you use it? Despite what some may think, the way you use your garage can also add value to your property and make it stand out. Other than sheltering your vehicles from Mother Nature’s forces, you could also convert your prefab garage into a personal gym, studio, library, office space, or a playroom for your children. No matter how you choose to use your garage, make sure it will fulfill both current and future needs.
