You know that you need to be staining and sealing or painting your wooden fence every year or two to protect it from the potentially damaging effects of weather and moisture. While wooden fences provide many many benefits, they require more maintenance than almost any other fencing material. If you had planned to paint the fence this year but you just hadn’t gotten around to it yet, the good news is there’s still time (fall is a great season for everything from fence installation to fence maintenance). And we’ve got your inspiration right here with several paint colors that will give your whole yard a new look and feel.
Natural wood is a great choice for your fence, but one that you likely need to commit to early. For many people, the natural wood look is a phase that you go through before you finally relent and paint a fence. Stain is a beautiful way to change the look of a fence without giving up the natural look. You can adjust the hue with just a tinge of color or a bold color choice, but still allow the wooden grain to show through. While not impossible, it is difficult to return to this option once you layer on coats of paint.
White is a traditional choice for fencing, with the white picket look being the most iconic. If you haven’t had a white fence before, the bold, crisp, clean color choice can make the whole fence pop in a more noticeable way than you might be used to. If you also have white trim on your home, painting your fence white can tie everything together and create a unified appearance.
Grey is a great color choice if you’re still staining or if you’ve decided to commit to paint. In pairs well with both traditional home styles and more modern looks. It is a great in-between choice and really won’t look off in any scenario. In fact, if you have certain types of wood, a grey weathered look is the result of letting it age naturally (this is not an option with all woods, however).
If you’re looking to add a pop of dramatic color, but you don’t want to go too bold, blue is a great choice. It won’t have the same level of energy as a red, and in most cases it can blend into the background of sky and plants at least a little bit. If you want to be a little edgy with your blue, opt for something very bright or electric.
If black seems like a bold choice, it is. People will definitely notice it. Once you get used to it however, it behaves more like a neutral. It fades into the background, but still gives a modern feel.
