If your fence is old, splitting, or leaning, it may be time to replace it. Wood is a great fencing material for pets, kids, and a budget-conscious household, however it does require some maintenance to keep it in great shape. Thinking about a stain or color for your fence doesn’t need to require endless trips to the hardware store to get swatches. Instead, ask yourself a few questions and before you know it, you’ll have the perfect color that reflects your personal style and ties your home together.
Match Your Shutters or Trim
This is the easiest way to bring your fence in line with the decor of your home. The look is classic and unifying, and that will definitely add curb appeal if you’re thinking of selling your home any time soon. Some hardware stores will even match the paint for you, so if you can take an inconspicuous sample of paint off of your trim, your fence can match your trim and shutters perfectly!
Are you looking for a bold color to brighten the look of your yard? Don’t miss a chance to make a statement with your fence. You can paint or stain the whole thing a bold color, or just accent areas of your fence, like the tops or just a few panels.
Match Your Landscape
Are you particularly proud of your gorgeous crepe myrtle? You can pair a color with the flowers either to match or to compliment your garden. If your prized flora is dark or deeply colored, you may want to consider a white or light colored fence, while if you have a fruit-bearing tree, you may want to get something darker so the berries or fruit don’t stain and ruin your fence.
Make it Your Own
If you live with an HOA in your neighborhood, you may have to get approval to do something adventurous with your fence, otherwise, there are no rules to how you can color or paint the perimeter of your yard! Entertain an option with multiple colors, like stripes or polka dots, or even a mural if you’re so inclined. It’s your yard, make your fence stand out! You can even just paint the side facing in a funky pattern and have the outside of your fence a plain, solid color.
