For years, Americans have been dreaming of owning a white picket fence. But is that really the look you want for your home. Whether you want to spruce up your old fence or paint your new one, there are some things you should know about choosing your paint or stain color. Let’s take a look at how you should choose your fence color.
What is Your Home’s Style?
The first thing you should do when choosing a fence color is to determine what is the style of your home. Choosing a color based on your home’s style is important so it doesn’t clash. Look at the style of your home as well as your personal style. A colonial-style house may look nice with a crisp white fence but it may not look right with a Mediterranean or estate-style house. Look carefully and consider everything fully before applying a color.
Review the Regulations and Policies
Before choosing a color, it is important to talk to your neighborhood or homeowners’ association (HOA) to see if there are any restrictions to painting your fence. Many HOAs only allow a certain color or a range of neutral colors like white and silver or natural-color wood stains. Make sure you are free to do what you want or be prepared to repaint.
Selecting the Color
The final thing you should do is select a color that complements not only the color of your house but one that also blends in with its surroundings. A bright color may be fine for one person, but the last thing you want to do is upset everyone in your neighborhood. Choose a color that will accent your home and make the neighborhood look good. In a yard that has a lot of foliage, choose a neutral dark-green paint or an oak stain to help the fence blend into its surroundings. Choose your color thoughtfully and make sure it isn’t too bright.
When choosing a color for your fence, it is important to choose the one you and your neighbors can live with. Feel free to talk to them and choose something that will match their home as well.
