What Are The Best Colours For My Fence?
Picking the right colour for your fence can be tricky. Choosing the colour which is right for your space can transform your garden. At Fence Makeovers we specialise in fence respraying and would like to share with you some tips on picking the best colour for your fence.
When picking the best colour for your fence, we consider the following factors:
- The size of the backyard
- The number of outdoor plants
- The style of your home
Choosing the colour to suit your outdoor space
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 black. Colorbond colour palette which includes 14 hues, is a good example of beautiful, balanced shades inspired by nature.
How to decide on light versus dark fence colour
When deciding between light and dark colours we recommend that you consider:
1. 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 contemporary and modern.
2. Outdoor plants. Would you like to show off your outdoor plants? Monument, Basalt or Ironstone will make the green truly stand out. The colour we use most often in green garden fence makeovers, is Monument.
3. The style of your home. If your house is modern or you like the ‘beach’ style – white or a very light grey is your best choice – it will brighten the space up. We like Surfmist, Dune and Shale Grey.
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).
The most popular colours
We recently had our 37 year old super six fence painted by Fence Makeovers. Bart did a wonderful job in turning an ugly fence that detracted badly from the aesthetic of our yard, into something that gave our backyard and garden a clean and fresh new look. Bart also painted our faded old colorbond garden shed to make it look new again.
Bart was very professional and helpful with every aspect of the job, from choosing colours to making sure that none of our garden plants were damaged while he was working. He was friendly and accommodating and worked quickly, quietly and efficiently the whole time he was on the job. We would have no hesitation in recommending Fence Makeovers to anyone who wants to turn an ugly fence or shed into something that they would be proud to have on their property.
