No curb appeal due to huge garage

3 months ago

Hello professionals! I am at a loss for how to improve the look of my house. This L-shaped, cedar house is built well, but without regard to how it looks from the outside. As you drive up to it, you are aggressively greeted by this garage. The roofline is an uninteresting 4/12 and the garage opening is a large 10' high. I just had a new, custom door installed, but the tiny swatch I was provided has very little in common with the color that actually arrived. Now it clashes. I'm trying to figure out if I need to change the trim color, add some board and batten or maybe a pergola or any eyebrow roof above the door? How can I make this area look nicer and more welcoming? Any tips are appreciated!
