All About Garage Door Trim

If you’re looking for ways to spruce up the front of your home and improve curb appeal, then your garage door should be one of your main targets. Your garage door takes up a large portion of the front of your home that’s visible as people drive by or when you walk up to it. So, we believe it’s something that you should take pride in.

If you’re looking for ways to spruce up your garage door, then you could try a decorative garage door trim.

What is a garage door trim?

Garage door trim is made up of decorative boards, most often associated with carriage house or barn style garage doors. These boards are available in a variety of materials, colors, and styles to suit the aesthetics of your home and garage door. Garage door trim is added to the outside face of your garage door or around the edge of the opening.

Why add garage door trim?

Garage door trim is added to garage doors to provide a more decorative and aesthetically pleasing design. They are often in a different color to the garage door itself, such as white boards on a dark garage door, to produce an attractive contrast. They also provide a sense of framing on the garage door, separating different sections and emphasizing the difference between the door and windows, for garage doors that have windows.

All in all, garage door trim can help your garage door stand out and improve your home’s curb appeal.

Garage door trim design ideas

You have lots of different style and design options when it comes to choosing and installing garage door trim. We’ve already mentioned the idea of a contrasting garage trim, such as a black trim on a white garage door to create an interesting contrast that stands out. You could also choose a trim that matches the front of the rest of the house, helping to seamlessly blend the garage door with the house exterior.

The thickness of your trim is another consideration. You could have a thin, subtle trim around the edge of your door or a thicker trim for something a little bolder. You could also opt for a curved trim for a softer, more rounded look.

If you’re going for a carriage house style, then the trim is usually on the face of the door rather than around the edge. There are lots of different styles of trim to choose from, such as cross rails, center posts, and V bucks, Z bucks, or cross bucks.
