Garage Door Decorative Hardware – Garage doors are often one of the most overlooked features of exterior decoration of a house. However, you can turn the ordinary into extraordinary by adding hardware to give the doors of your garage a house car. You can turn yesterday’s monotonous garage doors into doors that give your garage a stately, high-end look of a rustic transport house. In fact, after adding the hinges you may find yourself tempted to add extras, such as the carriage-style door lifts and pulls with decorative designs, such as a lion or a horse.
Examine the garage doors to see where the existing hinges are placed. More than likely there will be a “corner” on the sides away from the garage door frame. If the current stop plate is silver, you should consider painting the black to match the final transport aspect of black garage door decorative hardware. Determine how many hinges you will have to add. For example, if there are three current hinges on each side, you must add three carriage hinges to make the look consistent.
Explore and decide on a hinge style. The most typical designs have a rustic look, adorned with a fleur de lis design, endings that look like an evergreen tree or final designs that like a sword. Choose a color and finish of the hinges.
