Your fence, in many ways, is an extension of your home and can be one of the first things people notice when they come to visit. But styling your home’s exterior may mean more to you than just upping your curb appeal. Fencing is a great way to incorporate personality into your property’s design.
If you imagine your home as a picture, fences are the frame. Ideally, you’re going to want to choose something that pairs well with your house design and color, even if it’s unique. But choosing the perfect design can be nerve-wracking, so here are some ideas for how you can add a bit of color and pizzazz to your fences or columns.
Pair The Color With Your House
This one’s pretty straightforward. If you’re having trouble looking for a color to paint your fence, an easy but chic technique is to utilize one of the colors you already have on your house’s exterior. Pull colors from:
- The primary color of your structure
- The trim of your house
- Or combine the two main colors on the fence, with one on the trellis and the other on the fence, for example
Choose A Painted Design
You don’t have to settle for a plain, single-color design. If something creative is more your style, adding a fun or elegant painted design on your fence is a great way to add some color while including the essence of your personality. You definitely won’t have to worry about blending in with all the other houses on your block!
Fences don’t have to be made of just one material. For example, if your home is made of brick, you can have a specialized design that combines both the main elements from your home, in addition to an accent material, such as brick, wood or iron. Not only is it unique, but it’s also a great way to save costs on an expensive materials since you won’t use it for your entire fence.
If you have a flair for the luxurious, adding golden touches to your fence can make your home look much more ornate and refined. It’s also perfect if you have a home exterior decorated with custom details already, and gilded touches will only mirror that lavish effect.
If you’re looking to add color to your fence, have a one-color backdrop, and accentuate it with a beautiful arrangement of flowers to bring some life to the perimeter of your home. It’s also perfect if you have a fence with a little bit of wear and tear, as people will be engaged by the flowers’ charm and unaware of any blemishes.
