Deciding to put up a fence is a big investment for most, so you want to make sure you choose wisely. Your fence should be functional, but you also want it to enhance the look & value of your home.
Here are some basic tips to help make your decision.
- The architectural style of your home: Whether it's Victorian, Georgian, Federation or Contemporary, selecting a fence design that complements your homes style is key. If you're not sold on a fence design that suits your home's era, you can go for a custom design to work in elements you like, with those in keeping with your homes era.
- Colour: You can either make your fence a feature point of your home, or blend in with its surrounds, depending on the colour you choose. When considering colour try matching it to something else on your house. It could be your roof colour / render colour or window colour for example. You may want to even consider your garden colours when making your decision.
- Aluminium, Steel, Wrought Iron or Timber? Each has its own benefits and has an equally impressive end result. When choosing a material think about what's best for your purpose, environment and budget.
- Security minded: A perimeter fence is a great deterrant for intruders. You may want to consider adding a video intercom and automation for peace of mind and convenience.
Lastly, get creative! A fence can be a work of art and a real talking point of your home. Explore the many options available when deciding on a design.
