Many people assume that carports aren’t pretty structures. But at Carport Kingdom, we certainly don’t think that’s true. Rather, we know that a carport can be both a stylish and functional addition to a property—you simply need to design it to match with the rest of the buildings and landscape on your property. Explore this guide on how to dress up your carport to create a quality, great-looking structure!

Get the Colors Right
Selecting the right color is the easiest place to start when thinking about the visual appeal of your carport. When you shop with Carport Kingdom, you’ll be able to pick from a range of colors for the roof, trim, and exterior of your structure. You could opt for a monochromatic look with the same color throughout, or you could go with a featured color on the roof and an accent on the trim.
If this carport is going to be located near your home, it’s important to think about the color of your house and how it will work with the colors of your new carport. Those colors don’t have to match exactly, but they should coordinate nicely so you don’t have a clash that’s unpleasant to the eye.
Pick a Style You Love
The style of carport you choose will go a long way toward determining how it looks in the end. This isn’t a matter of one style being better than the other. Rather, it’s more about what looks good to you and how it will fit with everything else on your property.
For example, if you go with a regular roof style on your carport, it will have rounded eaves. If you’d prefer something a little more angular, switching to an A-frame style roof will square up the edges and perhaps leave you with something that’s more suited to your taste. You can also add walls or partial walls on those sides to further alter the look of the finished product.
Doors and Windows
If you’d like your carport to look less like a temporary addition and more like a completed structure, doors and windows will do the trick. Of course, in order to take advantage of this option, you need to have at least one or two walls on your carport. You can’t add windows and doors to a building that’s only made up of a roof and four legs!
The addition of doors and windows to your new structure will not only offer a finished look, but they will provide some additional functionality, as well. As you plan your order, think about what you want this building to do on your property, and make sure every feature you add is going to work to serve your needs. A door might look good on your new metal building, but if it isn’t going to serve a purpose, you might want to leave it out.
Keep It Clean
When you first purchase your carport, it will be in pristine condition. While metal structures require minimal maintenance, it’s still important that you keep it clean so that it continues to look its best for years to come. If you want your carport to appear stylish well into the future, ensuring it’s uncluttered and free of debris is key.
Fortunately, metal buildings like the carports we sell at Carport Kingdom are extremely easy to clean and only need the occasional washing to remain in great condition. Make it a point to wash your carport down at least once a year—maybe more in a harsh climate—and you’ll love the way it looks.
