Rustic Red & Cream

Bold and eye-catching, it’s no wonder that red is one of the most popular garage colors, especially when it’s used as an accent. Here the bold red roof and trim stands out nicely against the soft, warm cream to create a delightful and inviting look that is both classic and timeless.

Traditional Green & White

White is one of the most popular garage colors and it really pops when you pair it with rich green to create this crisp, clean, and inviting look. Choose from green garage paint colors that range from sage to emerald to complement the beauty of your natural surroundings.

Bold Blue & White

Blue and white is a popular garage color scheme, particularly in coastal areas, evoking a sense of serenity and calm. But you can change the vibe by changing the blue, from rich navy for a more formal look to light sky blue for a relaxed and carefree appearance.

Choose Your Garage Color Scheme in Just 3 Steps

Now that you know a bit more about popular garage color combinations, it’s time to decide on your favorite garage color scheme. We’ve broken it down into 3 simple steps to help you narrow your choices faster.

  1. Choose the Base Garage Color
    The base color will serve as the main color for your garage and will likely be the color that stands out most. Some of our customers choose to be conservative here, choosing light garage colors such as white, cream or tan. Others prefer something bolder and go with rich reds or darker browns.
  2. Choose the Roof Color
    Many of our customers choose their roof color based on the color of their home’s roof. You don’t have to, of course, but it’s a great place to start. You can also choose a bolder or brighter roof color to express your personal style and make your garage stand out.
  3. Choose the Trim Color
    Your garage trim serves as an accent and can create a lovely contrast to the base color of your garage. Popular accent colors include charcoal, black, bronze, brown, or ivy. You can also choose to match the trim color with your base color for a minimalist and monochromatic garage color scheme.
