A portable garage is more than a place to park a car or keep tools that you use to care for your yard. A storage building is also a part of your property that you and others will notice whenever you’re in the backyard. Selecting the right color is essential.

Choose a Neutral Color

A portable garage should be aesthetically pleasing, but it shouldn’t be a focal point. When your family and friends spend time outdoors, you want people to focus on your house, garden, or pool, not your portable storage building. 

When it comes to houses, sheds, storage shelters, and other outdoor features, neutral colors are generally best. They’re visually appealing, but not overpowering. 

Shelters of America sells portable storage buildings with covers in several neutral colors, such as white, gray, and tan. You might decide to buy a portable shelter that matches the color of your house, or you might prefer to go with a contrasting color that will give your yard some visual contrast. If you don’t want people’s eyes to be drawn to your storage building, you can select a green cover that will blend in with the landscaping. 

The amount of sunlight you get in your backyard can impact your decision. A darker cover will cause the interior of your storage building to heat up more than a lighter cover will. If your yard has little shade and gets a lot of direct sunlight, a light-colored cover can be a good choice. 

You might want to take advantage of copious sunlight so you can work inside the shelter and not have to rely on artificial lighting. A translucent cover can maximize the amount of sunlight that enters your storage building.

Find a Portable Garage That’s the Right Size

Shelters of America sells storage buildings that can accommodate one or more vehicles, including boats and RVs. We also sell shelters in a range of smaller sizes.
