Want to know how to make your fence stand out from the crowd? Well, read on!
A fence can really make or break your home; it can be the difference between someone stopping in their tracks to admire your house from the street, completely overlooking it or, worse, thinking that it’s an eyesore. If you want to know how to make your fence (and therefore your house) stand out from the rest of the block, then you’re in the right place.
At Everlast Services, we have more than 20 years in the fencing, concreting and landscaping industry. This means we know all about how to create a truly unique fence that fits the aesthetic you’re looking for.
Here are a few tips and tricks to make your fence stand out from the crowd.
Select a Suitable Style
When installing your new fence, it’s important to keep in mind the aesthetic of your home and what kind of fence will best complement it. For example, if you have a modern-style home, aluminium slat fencing may provide the sleek and sharp lines you’re looking for. If your home is more quaint, you may want to go for a steel picket-style fence, which will provide you with the classic charm you’re looking for without disintegrating like regular timber.
Mixing styles, when done well, however, can also be extremely striking and help your home to stand out. For example, a heritage-style fence can look fantastic when paired with a modern home and vice-versa.
It’s also important to keep function in mind; for example, when choosing pool fencing, you will likely still want to be able to show off your pool. On the other hand, when choosing fencing for the perimeter of your home, you may want to choose an option which offers more privacy and security.
The materials your fence is made of will determine several practical elements. These elements include its ability to provide privacy, security and noise reduction. If you choose your fencing material correctly, you can kill two birds with one stone. You can fulfil both your practical and style needs.
Steel fencing is the perfect choice for security and durability and is also extremely versatile in the look that it provides as it can even mimic other materials like wrought iron. Aluminium slats, on the other hand, are sleek and modern but are also a great way to keep prying eyes away from your home. Glass fences will help to boost the value of your property without concealing any of your home’s beauty.
When it comes to landscaping and exterior design, choosing colours which complement each other is one of the biggest challenges. If you choose to paint your fence a bright colour, you need to keep in mind that it will be prone to fading. This is because the paint will be constantly exposed to sunlight.
One way to incorporate colour into your fence without having to worry about it being affected by the elements is by choosing Colorbond. Colorbond fencing is available in a wide variety of colour. Plus, it’s designed to be able to withstand anything that Mother Nature throws at it. One of the most appealing things about Colorbond is that it is equally attractive on both sides of the fence. This way, you don’t have to worry about any neighbour disputes when you have it installed.
Even the most plain and boring fences can be made to look spectacular. You just need to add a few decorations and accessories. One of the most effective ways to decorate your fence is by incorporating plants. This also means that your fence is seamlessly incorporated into your garden. One way you can do this is by having a garden bed at the base of your fence and planting your favourite flowers. Some plant species – like jasmine, ivy and some types of roses – will even climb up your fence and turn it into a kind-of vertical garden.
