Background Versus Star Players
Notice how for this particular design, their chosen garage door style is a traditional raised panel with no windows. Their gray short panel garage door is subdued, which allows the eyes to settle on a soft color. A subdued garage door allows other parts of the home to shine, so nothing is fighting for center stage.
When Bearfoot Garage Doors installed a new garage door for this home, they already had multicolored shiplap panels on the walls, an orange-rusted colored beadboard, and a wood-centric theme. Their chosen gray short panel garage door serves as a background player, so it brings the whole look together with complementary colors.
Adding design features like short panels, long panels, raised panels, recessed panels, flushed panels, or no panels is up to the homeowner. Smaller panels on the face of a garage door add depth and dimension, creating pleasant details for a textured look.
Some garage door terminology: short panels mean square-shaped panes, and long panels mean small rectangular panes. Short panels, like on this gray short panel garage door, give it a three-dimensional effect. The valleys and high plateaus arranged in this chocolate bar formation are a stylish aesthetic that adds to this design element.
