If you’ve been shopping around for a new style of residential fence to install on your property, then it might be beneficial to check out some of the newest trends in the industry. Although trends are known for coming and going, they can give you some great insight into the direction that fence style is moving. Check out these fencing trends to get some better ideas for your own installation.
Fences that feature horizontal lines are a big trend because of how they enhance the overall beauty of the design of your property. The look is modern, sleek, and simple. It especially complements new homes. Use traditional materials by just turning them sideways to create a look that is both trendy yet familiar and timeless.
Wood is one of the most popular and most commonly used materials for residential fencing. However, recently the industry has seen an increase in homeowners being interested in using alternative materials to wood. Some of those materials include vinyl, steel, and other composite materials. They are popular because they offer a low-maintenance lifestyle and are eco-friendly. Wood is susceptible to pests, rotting, and other issues that many homeowners don’t have the time or budget to deal with.
This trend doesn’t have to do with the fence itself, but how you adorn it. Use plants, flowers, vines, and other natural elements to integrate into the design of your fence. It bridges the gap between your fencing and your landscape design. Take some of the elements of your landscape and give them some height by installing planters and flower boxes on your fence. You could also weave flowers and vines through the framework of the fence to create a more whimsical look and to create more privacy.
Lighting is a great way to enhance the atmosphere of your property, especially when entertaining at night. Using your fence at a platform is a great idea as it will surround your home in illumination, beauty, and enhanced security. Try cap lights for your posts or even strong lights along the length of the fence line.
