Your garage should look just as beautiful and organized on the outside as it does on the inside. Once you've figured out a garage storage system, it's time to focus on how the outside of your space appears.

Frame your garage
Draw attention to your beautiful garage doors by framing them with greenery. Opt for tall, colorful plants or use a few green shrubs to add texture. You can also use decorative stone to create a natural frame around the exterior of the garage.

Add lighting
Your garage door should be seen even when it's dark outside. Install motion sensor lights on either side of your garage doors to illuminate the area when you have late-night guests. Make sure that the wall sconces being installed complement the style of your garage doors. For instance, you can blend wrought iron light structures with a reclaimed wood garage door for a shabby-chic look.

Consider material
Does your garage door reflect the style of your home? For instance, if you have a modern home, you probably don't want a garage door constructed out of reclaimed wood. Instead, consider a door that will simulate the qualities of your interior. For a contemporary garage door, try using frosted glass doors or sleek dark wood.

Use decorative molding
Frame your garage door by adding some decorative molding to the exterior. Before you choose the molding, look around at the architectural details on the exterior of your home. You can use those as inspiration for selecting the perfect style.

Put up a trellis
You traditionally only see trellises or pergolas in the backyard or on the patio, but this amenity can blend just as well with your garage. It provides some shade for any cars parked underneath the pergola and it's the perfect spot to hang plants or greenery.
