The beauty of natural timber has long been appreciated in architecture. But unfortunately, Australia’s harsh climate can wreak havoc on the structure of wooden garage doors, meaning they typically require a lot of upkeep.

The garage door makes up around 40% of a home’s facade, so it should make a lasting impression. Timber-look garage doors are a simple yet effective way to achieve wow-factor without your home’s façade needing a major overhaul.

 

Coordinating timber with different tones

Pair the rich tones of a timber-look garage door with a white, cream or neutral colour palette for a subtle but classic effect. Otherwise, mix and match exterior wooden features such as front doors or window frames to complement a timber-look garage door.

Timber looks fabulous against black or dark cladding. An ordinary home painted in a dark colour can be a star of the street with the simple addition of a stunning wood-look garage door.

 

 

Timber-clad, traditional exteriors

Federation-style homes look spectacular with timber-look garage doors in a rectangular-pressed pattern. With a range of B&D profiles available across the Panelift range, opt for Federation, Statesman or Grange in a woodgrain finish with Timbagrain Classic Cedar or Caoba.

Alternatively, consider Seville in a woodgrain finish. Seville's subtle, horizontally ribbed panels are particularly suited to weatherboard and brick cladding. Colour options include two Timbagrain colours, as well as the striking Knotwood collection in 10 unique timber tones.

Knotwood is a high-quality wood-grain finish that boasts the durable, sturdy qualities of steel, with little-to-no maintenance required. Available on Panelift Seville, Turino and Madrid profiles, it’s been specially designed to replicate the warmth and character of popular Australian native and exotic timbers.

 

 

Wooden features for modern homes

The mixed-material trend is making a mark in modern architecture, with many properties featuring various shades and tones from different materials such as metal and wood. When paired with other design elements around the home, this not only maintains consistency but also delivers a dramatic first impression.

Contemporary homes with linear features and geographic shapes look superb with flat-panelled garage doors like the B&D Panelift Icon and Panelift. If your home has a contrasting façade with sleek, modern lines, coordinate with a dark, moody Knotwood shade such as Wenge or Black Walnut on a Seville, Turino or Madrid profile. Lighter colour schemes will work best with softer timber tones such as Aspen, Weathered Oak or Tassie Oak.

 

 

Tasteful timber-look roller doors

With its subtle woodgrain effects and tones, B&D’s Timber Coat range is the first of its kind to combine the look of natural timber with the hard-wearing qualities of steel on a Roll-A-Door.

The street appeal of a roller door gets a serious upgrade with four B&D-exclusive Timber Coat finishes: Japan Cherry, Macadamia Nutwood, Hickory Nutwood and Golden Oak. The range is available on all doors in the Roll-A-Door range, except those with a smooth finish.
