How to Fence Your Home and Maintain Curb Appeal

A great fence can add to the curb appeal of your home. The wrong type of fence can damage your curb appeal and depreciate your property. No one wants to live in a home where the fencing makes it feel like a prison, or where the fence actually makes your home worth less. How do you get the fence you want or need, and maintain your curb appeal?

  • Pick a material that either compliments your home. This one depends on how you want it to look in the end. Having one that contrasts your home can add curb appeal and make the home stand out better, whereas you can also have a fence that blends in nicely, that adds to the appeal as well. Different materials also stand up to time and weather better than others. Finding one that works with your home, and lasts a long time can be key.
  • Choose an appropriate colour. Bright colours can be used to draw your eyes to the property and make it feel warmer and more inviting. Colours that blend in with the vegetation and garden can be a great compliment to the home, and make it a beautiful inviting property, while ensuring that your property is also secure. There is no hard-fast rule to fence colours but the colours you choose can change the impact. The only word of caution is to avoid colours that are just the in thing right now. These may further age and date your home should they no longer be in style.
  • A design that compliments and fits in with your home can help with the curb appeal. Depending on the style of your home, you can find a fencing style and design that fits in with it. You don’t want a super modern fence with an older style home as it will only date the home and reduce the overall curb appeal.
  • Remember the fence alone may not make the difference. Planters along the fence, different foliage complementing and growing up the fencing can also make a big impact and help with the curb appeal.

No matter what style or colours you choose, it is important to remember, what you think is the perfect fencing for you home, may not be what someone else views as perfection.
