Details that soften and define can be a great way to give your garage a low- to mid-cost facelift without a lot of structural heavy lifting. One good option is a narrow pergola or horizontal trellis over the garage doors.
If you want to separate your outdoor space from your driveway or a street but you want to maintain accessibility, consider a gated arbor. These homeowners opted for a shorter, curved-top gate to create separation without blocking views. A mix of bright whites and cool grays give the space an elegant and sophisticated look.
