Garage Door Trends 2020

Garage doors often go unnoticed when it comes to sprucing up a home, mainly due to the fact they aren’t on show and situated at the back of a property or at the end of a garden. Nowadays, the majority of garages are built as part of a house, especially in new builds and townhouses, giving residents the choice to use a garage as a garage or convert into an extra room.
With this in mind, why not improve your home’s kerb appeal with a new garage door. Here’s a few things to consider prior to purchasing a garage door.


Security should be at the top of your list. Think of a garage door as part of your home. You wouldn’t leave your front door unlocked at night, and the same applies to your garage door. These days a padlock and key won’t suffice, especially if you’ve splashed out with an all singing all dancing garage door. AlluGuard’s Qompact Aluminium Security Roller Garage, provides ultimate security and regarded as one of the leaders within the garage door industry. It has an impressive array of technical and security led features, which makes it one of the most secure garage doors out there. To view the key features click here.


Once your security is sorted, it’s now time to start thinking about the style of your garage door. Hormann offer a range of garage and entrance doors that will compliment the look and feel of your home. It also supplies coordinating garage entrance and side doors that come in matching finishes and colours. This trend is fast becoming a popular choice in many modern homes.
