Building a home is a process and each part involves immense labour of love, even if it is just the fences. Yes, even the tiny wooden picket line around your backyard matters. So, in case you do not want to take the easy way out and go for whatever is cheap, here are some ideas for fences that will make your house look like your home and make those snooty neighbours of yours jealous while at it.
- A little wild, a little bright
Contrary to popular belief, it is actually easier and cheaper to have fences that will make anyone’s jaw drop. Consider this one for example: a line of wild shrubberies that run all the way round your property. They will add a warm green tone to your abode and, when they flower, will put the painter’s palette to shame.
- White picket fence
Or you could go the traditional way and opt for the white picket fence. These fences are understated yet beautiful. They are also easy to maintain and take care of.
- Colourful wrought iron fences
Who said wrought iron fences are boring? Prove everyone wrong by painting your iron fences all the whimsical shades in the world. Better yet, let your child have a go at it.
- A swivelling little wooden door
Picture this: a pebbly way that runs from your door to a sweet little wooden door that swivels on either side. Add a garden on either side and you will have neighbours swooning all over at the sight of this rustic piece of gorgeousness.
- A lovely line of trees
A line of tall, stately trees that run around your peaceful home. They swish when the wind blows and turn bright orange in fall and catch bits of rain and snow on their lovely leaves. Paints quite a pretty picture, doesn’t it?
- A stark white garden gate
The bright alabaster tone of the gate contrasts with the lush green garden beyond and the brightly coloured flowers in full bloom. Everyone who claims white is boring will bite their tongue at this.
- For the quirky hearts
A wise person once thought that anything can be a fence. Even lines of cycles or brightly painted flower pots resting on top stacks of rocks. The quirkier it is, the better.
- Shiny steel fence
Simple yet effective. These are also very low maintenance and will complement both stately and homely abodes.
- Simply slats
Simple wooden slats will sometimes look way cooler than its very expensive counterparts. Paint them black and grey for a sauve look or go for a lot of colours.
- Frosted fences
Frosted glass fences are a really cool way to go. They look chic and artsy and will offer a peek into your lovely gardens without really revealing too much. You may also mix and match stained and frosted glass panels to make it look even more sophisticated.
