Tips for Choosing the Right Fence Color

Painting or staining your fence can bring an old fence back to life, or add some flair to a new fence.

You have decided to increase your property value, make your yard more secure, and protect your pets and children with a brand new residential fence. But now comes the hard part—what fence color should you choose?

Think About Your Style

First things first, what style is your home? That should definitely be taken into consideration when choosing your fence color. If you have a traditional Colonial, a clean and crisp white picket fence will look absolutely perfect but a towering wrought iron fence painted black might look a little odd. If you have a farm style home, a beautifully stained wood fence will probably match more than a vinyl coated chain link.

Think About Your Neighborhood

Beyond the style of your home, consider the policies and regulations surrounding fences where you live. The state, county, city, and homeowners’ association might all have different guidelines. Before you can choose the right color for your fence, make sure more than one or two colors are even options. Some groups will require you to stick to white, brown, or natural wood stains.

Think About Your Neighbors

After you take into account everything above, it’s time to think about your neighbors themselves, especially if you share a fence wall with them. The final fence color that you choose should match the style of your home, meet the rules that your city and neighborhood has, and blend in nicely with the area around your home. If you have a business, you might be able to get funkier with fence color. If you have a home, keep it simple so that you will be able to keep looking at it week after week without getting sick of it. The last thing that you want to be known as is the crazy fence man or woman.
