Choosing a Fence to Match Your Home Style

You’ve designed your home to be uniquely your own, don’t ruin the look with an outdated or damaged fence! You can bring your home’s design full-circle by choosing a fence that complements your home. Paying attention to extra details like your fence will ensure that your home has a unified look and that nothing detracts from the beauty of your home.

There are a variety of fencing styles that will complement any sort of home design. Below we will dive into some of our favorite fence types to match your home’s style.

Traditional Homes

Traditional homes have the most flexibility when it comes to choosing a fence style. One of the first options you should consider is a wood fence. Wood fences with vertical planks provide privacy and security for your home and are available in different wood types and stain colors to create a custom look.

Another great option for traditional homes are iron fences. Iron fences tend to have a more upgraded look as opposed to a wood fence, but they don’t provide as much privacy as traditional wood fences. When considering an iron fence, keep in mind that by themselves they will not prevent small pets from getting out, or outside critters getting in.

A newer fence type that fits traditional homes well are vinyl fences. Vinyl fences are a low-maintenance option, as they don’t require and painting or staining. Vinyl fences are installed and ready to go for your family to enjoy for years to come. With vinyl fencing you can enjoy the same privacy features of a wood fence, with the benefit of little to no repairs in future years.

Contemporary Homes

When it comes to contemporary homes, one of our favorite options is a horizontal wood fence. Horizontal wood fences have the benefit of privacy that you expect from a wooden fence, but because of the horizontal plank placement, your fence will have a more modern look. You can leave the wood in its natural state, or you can stain it to complete your desired style.

Basket weave fences are a take on the horizontal wood fence we mentioned above. Like the horizontal fence, a basket weave fence has a contemporary look, but with extra flair. The basket weave fence might be the right choice for you if a standard wooden fence (either with horizontal or vertical planks) is too simple for your taste.

Vinyl fences aren’t only a choice for traditional homes! Vinyl fencing can be installed and styled in a contemporary way. Take a look at our Persimmon fence, it combines the durability you expect from vinyl with a contemporary twist to fit your home’s style.

If you are looking for a customized solution, custom fencing may be the right choice for you.
