This fall, give your fence some new life. After all, the long, hot summer dried it out. If you’re thinking of ways to make the fencing around your home stand out from the rest of your neighborhood, here are some ways to do it.
Adding some new color is a great way to rejuvenate your home. It’s also great if you want to make your wood fencing look different.
When you repaint your fence, you are also taking care of it. You know what a white picket fence looks like, but that doesn’t mean you need to settle on that look. Express yourself in unusual ways based on what’s allowed in your Homeowners Association guidelines.
For instance, yellow and turquoise are unique colors that you probably won’t see around your neighborhood. You can also consider using green, grey, and red to stand out from the vibrant colors of the fall foliage that will start popping up as September turns into October.
Add a Pattern
Alternatively, you can paint the boards of your fence a different color. Mixing and matching complementary colors can help increase your home’s resale value and curb appeal without running the risk of becoming an eyesore.
However, another idea is to add a pattern through stenciling. Using a neutral color will help any effects such as zigzags, arrows, mandalas, and geometric shapes pop off the surface of your fence. For even more family fun, ask your kids to choose a pattern that they like, and they can try adding it to the fence by themselves.
Add a Mural
If you’re feeling artsy, you can design and draw a mural on your fence too. Whether you want to put it on the garden fencing bordering your neighbor’s yard or if you want to place it on a fence facing the street, it’s a good idea to check with your HOA before you do anything like this. Luckily, you can do it even if art isn’t your strong suit. You can always ask a friend, neighbor, or professional artist to create something for you instead.
