Your driveway is nothing if it doesn’t lead to an attractive garage door. When both designed with the other element in mind, the result can be stunning. Improving your curb appeal starts with your driveway and garage, and extends to the overall beauty of your home and surrounding property.

Every neighborhood has that one home that commands more attention than all the others. From meandering walkways to breathtaking landscaping to impressive garage doors, there are many elements that work in harmony to create a welcoming entry to your home. Here are some ways in which you can make your driveway the envy of the neighborhood.

Upgrade Your Materials

If your driveway is old and outdated, it’s time for an overhaul. You have many options, from pavers to brick to gravel. The one you choose will depend on the style of your home and garage door. Pavers can be matched to the hue of your door, or a complementary color, and they can be arranged in patterns such as circles and star bursts.

Concrete driveways complement modern garage doors, while gravel is a good choice for a long, winding country driveway with complementary landscaping, points out Brick tends to complement homes in upscale neighborhoods and historical areas, adding a timeless look that adds plenty of character.

Update Your Garage Door

A beautiful driveway needs a beautiful garage door. As such, you should put a lot of thought into the type of door you want to incorporate. Is your current garage out of style, sagging, broken or just plain old? Time for an upgrade. Not only can a new garage door offer safe, secure, and easy access to your garage, but it also can refresh your property’s appearance, giving your home instant curb appeal.

Today’s technologies bring advanced materials designed to withstand weathering for many years, including steel, wood, fiberglass, vinyl, and aluminum. A reputable garage door installer will offer many styles and types of garage doors for you to choose from. For instance, M&M Garage Doors offers a variety of collections, from the traditional (Amarr by Design) to classics (Olympus Collection) to modern (Vista Collection).

Add Lighting

Adding landscape lighting along the border of your driveway, as well as on and around your garage door, will illuminate your pathway and entry for a safe, pleasant welcome. The addition of lighting can improve your function and style, drawing attention to the focal point of your home. From pagoda-style lights along the driveway to lights on poles or pillars framing your garage door, lights are a versatile and beautiful way to show off your creativity.
