View your exterior from curb.  does your structure include any of the following:  front window trim, front porch, railings, pillars, cedar shakes, bricks, rocks around the garage doors, gables, dormers, etc.

If your home already has all of those features, then you may want to consider painting the garage doors siding colors to avoid that “busy look”.
