When you think about garage doors, you probably do not think of the latest trends, but garage doors have come a long way from when they were just a barrier between your garage and the outside. Technology, even mobile tech, has found its way into garage doors and we want to share with you some of those latest trends!
1. Smartphone accessibility.
This is the top trend for a good reason. You can use your phone to pretty much do everything nowadays! There are Wi-Fi openers that have smart technology built in so it's easy to connect your garage. LiftMaster has the myQ app, which allows you to be able to:
- Receive activity alerts and open/close your garage door on your smartphone.
- Set recurring schedules to close your garage door and turn myQ lights on/off.
- Sync with popular smart devices and platforms.
2. Energy efficiency.
New garage doors are more energy efficient due to their insulation properties. They tend to lower energy costs by helping to maintain a consistent temperature inside. Upgraded garage doors also have innovative edge seals for weather resistance. This is especially helpful during months that bring extreme hot or cold temperatures.
3. Bold looks.
Garage doors don't just have to blend in with your home any more! Garage doors come in so many looks now. Picture a white house with an dark wood accent garage door! Window patterns are changing now as well. You can get a solid glass door to brighten up your garage and give your home a cool, industrial look that is still functional and fun!
