Choosing what color to paint your garage door can be more complicated than selecting the door itself.

However, another factor in choosing a color that people don’t think about is what is in style. Good garage door colors capture attention, tying the aesthetic of your house together. At the same time, lousy garage door colors can derail the look of your home investment.

At Overhead Door Company of Lincoln™, we understand choosing a color is essential. That’s why we’ve put a list of garage door paint colors trending in 2022, so you can make the right decision or fix a bad one.

You Can’t Go Wrong with White Paint!

Timeless is in, so homeowners can never go wrong with painting their garage door white. White paint never goes out of style—hence why many people use it for a timeless look. But the true power of this color comes in its ability to match. White will match with any color or esthetic the dominant color of your house incorporates. 

It may seem strange, but there are different colors of white that garage doors can be painted. Here are just a few of the tones to choose from when seeking your timeless 2022 look:

  • Cream
  • Off-white
  • Alabaster

Other Timeless Colors

Timeless doesn’t have to mean white paint! If you think that color is too dull for a garage door, there are plenty of other paint options you can go with that will be in style during 2022. 

If you don’t want to go with white, other garage door colors you’ll see in 2022 will be:

  • Black
  • Bay
  • Navy
  • Taupe
  • Gray


There is always the option of combining white paint with traditional color schemes. Overhead Door offers a wide variety of garage door colors that feature white trims!

For example, white/gray, white/clay, and white/green give your garage door the best of both worlds when featuring not one but two timeless colors.


Don’t want to go with a traditional paint color? Timeless doesn’t mean only one of the above. Wooden garage doors are, and always will be, in style—which means they certainly will be in 2022. Here are some of the wooden garage door colors and finishes that we offer:

  • Mahogany 
  • West Cedar
  • Smooth Plywood
  • Roughsawn Plywood
  • Knotty Cedar
  • Hemlock 

Don’t want a wooden garage door but still want the look? A variety of our steel, fiberglass, and vinal have finishes that can mimic the look of that material! Overhead Door offers a variety of stained finishes on our doors like Mahogany, Honduran mahogany, Oak, and Red Oak.

Which Garage Door Color is Right for Me?

A good rule of thumb is to match the garage door paint you use with the dominant color of your house. If you have a green place, a good option for painting your garage door will be. . . green or white (because white goes with everything)! It’s that simple.

Of course, there is always room for a little more creativity when working with the favored, timeless color schemes of 2022. This comes in the form of trims that can be chosen, specifically in white—do you see a throughline here?

For this example, we’ll stick to our example of a house with a primary color of green. To match this, you could select a green door with white trim!
