Are you looking to install a new fence or give your wood fence a new colored stain? Whether you have a wood, vinyl, composite, aluminum, or steel fence, it will need to be a color of some sort. Make that color count toward your home’s curb appeal with these tips below. Here are a few pointers about how to choose a fence color for your Maryland backyard.
What Is Your Home’s Color Scheme?
The first question to ask is, “What’s your home’s color scheme?” What colors exist in your home’s exterior? Using one or two of the same colors in your house is a good way to decide your fence colors.
For example, if your home has white trim, a white fence will probably look great! Alternatively, your home might have a rustic color palette, in which case a wood-looking fence would be best.
Stand Out or Blend In?
Another question you can ask is whether or not you want your fence to stand out or blend in with the property. If it stands out, it can be clear where your property border is and be a statement piece that completes your yard. If it blends in, it will not distract from other focal points and look more natural.
Light, Neutral, or Warm?
Fences can be as light as white, neutral as tan, gray, or green, or as warm as a dark red or reddish brown. You can think about this facet as you would in interior design. The answer will boil down to personal taste and your property’s other home exterior elements. Do you like it light and airy, neutral and calm, or warm and cozy?
What’s the Mood?
The point above blends in with the question of mood. Some fences can be very dramatic and contrasting, while others are more earthy and calming. Colors make a difference! The mood you create in your backyard will tie style elements together aside from color alone.
