After the turbulence of 2020, 2021 offers the promise of the new and the hopeful. Home trends that continue to gain prominence and are considered a priority among homeowners and are also center stage for the garage door industry. Home security, smart technology and contemporary design can put your home’s garage door system squarely in the crosshairs of 2021 home trends.
One trend that is gaining further momentum is the need for home security. From smart home security to reinforced entry points and upgraded access systems, 2021 is about achieving peace of mind by prioritizing safety.

Another element to home security and a continuing trend for 2021, is utilizing the most up-to-date technology. With new smart home apps, homeowners can monitor or control their garage doors remotely via their smart devices, allowing you to check if your garage door is open or closed, or if someone is attempting to operate the garage door without permission. It even offers the added security benefit of keeping a log of all uses of the garage door with dates and times. Garage doors will never accidentally be left open because homeowners can check the status through their smartphone app and safely close the door. Apps can also alert homeowners if the door is open for an extended period of time or after a certain time at night.
In 2021, home design trends will continue to lean toward a sleek, no-nonsense aesthetic with designs favoring a contemporary style. To best complement modern architectural design for indoor-outdoor spaces, garage doors that feature clean lines provide an uninterrupted flow between these settings. Homeowners also understand the importance of functionality paired with aesthetics. As such, garage doors featuring premium insulation and durability are a top priority in addition to aesthetics.
But don’t be afraid to go bold. Homeowners are continually choosing colors and design options that help their homes stand out from the pack while boosting their curb appeal. That’s why enhanced customization is a trend that is here to stay.
