What’s the point of a having a driveway if it doesn’t lead to a functional, attractive garage door? Each of the components of your home should complement one another, for a stunning result that will make your neighbors envious. Ready to improve your curb appeal? Start with your driveway and garage. When done right, these elements will extend to the overall beauty of your home and landscape.

Every neighborhood features that one home that gets more attention than the others., whether it’s the meandering walkway, breath-taking landscaping, or commanding garage door. Many things must work in harmony to craft such a welcoming entry to your home. Here are some ways you can get the perfect driveway.

Give it a Makeover

Is your driveway old and outdated? It’s time for a makeover. You can line your driveway with asphalt, pavers, brick or gravel, depending on the style of your home and garage door. For instance, you can match pavers to your door color, or arrange them in patterns such as circles and star bursts.

Concrete driveways perfectly augment modern garage doors, and gravel is a nice choice if you have a long, winding country driveway with complementary landscaping, says Realtor.com. Brick complements homes in historical areas and upscale neighborhoods, giving you a timeless look for lots of character.

Update Your Door

A gorgeous driveway needs a gorgeous garage door. Take a look at your current garage: is it outdated, sagging, broken or old? Now’s the perfect time to upgrade, adding safety, security, and easier access to your garage, while at the same time refreshing your property’s appearance. Instant curb appeal: this is the major benefit to a new garage door.

Today’s technologies offer many more advanced materials that are better able to withstand weathering. From steel and wood to fiberglass, vinyl, and aluminum, you should have a wide selection to choose from when you partner with a reputable garage door installer. For example, M&M Garage Doors offers a variety of collections, from the classics (Olympus Collection) to traditional (Amarr by Design) to modern (Vista Collection).

Incorporate Lighting

Now for the finishing touches: why not add some landscape lighting along the border of your driveway? You can also add some on and around the garage door. Such lighting will illuminate pathways and entries for safety and aesthetics. Use lighting to improve your function and style, all while pulling attention to the focal point of your home. Show off your creativity with pagoda-style lights along the driveway, or with lights on poles or pillars to frame your garage door.
