Trend Alert: Gray and Black Garage Doors

One of the latest home exterior design trends is utilizing dark colors.  Dark colors provide a dynamic, refined look to a home’s façade, grab the eyes of passersby, and increase curb appeal!  This trend also complements the modern industrial trend in home design.

Colors like charcoal gray and black are great for adding pops of dark color to a home’s trim, shutters, entry doors and garage doors.  Below are ideas of how to capitalize on this color trend for your garage doors!

Charcoal Gray

Amarr Classica - Charcoal Gray

Dark colors like charcoal gray are very popular on home exteriors.  Dark gray colors complement almost all stone and siding, along with most neutral exterior colors with cool undertones.  Charcoal gray also works well with the currently popular rustic design trend.  This home looks great with an Amarr Classica collection garage door with Lucerne panel design in charcoal gray.

Amarr Oak Summit - Charcoal Gray

Victorian-style, gothic architecture often includes dark colors, so this Amarr Hillcrest collection garage door with recessed panel design in charcoal gray complements the dark gray alcove accent above the garage, as well as the roofing and second-floor siding.  It also contrasts well with the white columns and window trim.

Amarr Lincoln - Charcoal Gray

Charcoal gray plays well with other grays, too.  This home has several exterior features in different shades of gray, and the Amarr Lincoln collection short panel garage door with dark tint windows adds depth to the lighter gray façade.


Amarr Olympus - Black

Black home exterior elements, including garage doors, became popular with modern, contemporary home design.  The color black lends an air of sophistication to the exterior of a home, especially when juxtaposed with light colors.  This home’s curb appeal is increased by a stylish black Amarr Olympus collection garage door with short panel design.  A traditional short panel garage door in black puts a new, unexpected twist on a classic!

Amarr Heritage - Black

The black, long panel Amarr Heritage collection garage door on this home utilizes Amarr Mosaic Window Options to mirror the style of the home’s modern-looking entry door.

Amarr Classica - black

An Amarr Classica collection garage door with Bordeaux panel design in black stands out against the stone exterior of this home.  The large Seine windows mimic the shape of the window to the left of the door, too!

  1. Black and grey never go out of style, for any thing and garage doors really look attractive and smart in them.

  2. A combination of black and white may be one of the most sought-after colors. Monochrome, as this alloy is commonly called, will produce a combination of contrasts that seem oddly appropriate.

    Hi, I’m looking for the color code for Charcoal Gray to match my wood trims.
    Can you send the code to me? Thank you.

      Hi Alan, Amarr paint colors are part of the Sherwin Williams National Database. A Sherwin Williams representative will be able to mix “Amarr Charcoal Gray” for you in-store. Thanks!

        I have been to two Sherman Williams stores o try and get charcoal gray paint since Amarr will not send sample color chips ( call made on 4/13/19) and I could not obtain or even see samples in three different Lowes stores. One SW (Orange CA) store sold me sample they said was charcoal gray- seemed very light, so I went to another store (Irvine CA) to request the Amarr black- they told me they could not find the color code, and called the original SW store who told the clerk she had “made an educated guess” on the gray but had not informed me of this. Help!!No samples and no paint to even try to see what they true colors might be.
