Fence Painting Tips | Choosing The Right Colour For Your Fence

Fence painting tips

At Fence Makeovers we specialise exclusively in fence respraying. We would like to share with you some fence painting tips which we think are useful.

Changing the colour of a fence has an incredible impact. Not only will your fence look new and fresh – your outdoor space will appear completely different. The effect is transformational.

Choosing the colour to suit your outdoor space

What should you consider before you go ahead with the fence painting project? We think picking the right colour is the most important step.

We see a fence as a backyard’s canvas, so we usually recommend simple colours. Light ones:  whites and light greys OR the dark palette: dark browns, charcoals and blacks.

How to decide on light versus dark fence colour


When deciding between light and dark colours we recommend that you consider:


The Size Of Your Backyard.

If you have a smaller garden – white or light grey will add an illusion of space.  Bigger space – dark colour will look very modern.

Outdoor Plants

Would you like to show off your outdoor plants? Black, grey or charcoal will make the green truly stand out.

Style Of Your House

If your house is modern or you like the ‘beach’ style – white is your best choice – it will brighten the backyard up. For backyards with a swimming pool – darks looks awesome next to water (the colours we use most often with the swimming pools: Monument, Basalt, Black Ace).
