How To Make Your Garage Look More Modern

by Howard Barnett

One of the most popular interior and exterior design trends right now is the mid-century modern vibe. Whether you have an old house or you are building a new house, if you want to attain this look, it's essential that you look at just about every detail of your home design. One of the things that you should look at is the exterior of your home, including your garage. This article will take a closer look at a few different ways that you can make the area around your garage look modern in no time. Read on to learn some more. 

Get a Modern Garage Door

One of the best ways that you can make your garage look more modern is to get a modern-inspired garage door. The fun thing with modern garage doors is that there are tons of different options; most of which include a little bit of glass. For instance, you can get a garage door that is made entirely of glass, or you can get a garage door that is made of mostly wood with some glass panels at the top, bottom, or on the side. Your garage door may be a significant expense, but it will definitely be worth it. 

Get Some Modern Pots

Another thing that you can do once you get a new garage door is some modern-inspired flower pots to put on either side of your garage. Typically, modern flower pots have straight lines and are made of concrete or zinc. Try looking for pots that are tall so that they make a really big statement, and then plant a bunch of succulents or desert plants inside of them. 

Get Modern Lighting

In addition to having some flower pots on either side of your garage door, make sure that you invest in some mid-century modern lights as well. Modern lighting will help tie-in the rest of your house with your new door. When looking for mid-century lights, make sure that they make a big enough impact so that they don't just blend in with the rest of your house. 

Now that you have a few ideas on how you can make your home's exterior look like it's mid-century modern, it's time for you to get to work and get started on these ideas.
