Homeowners are naturally look for ways to improve the value of their homes by giving their home curb appeal, but how many overlook some of the simplest ways to make their homes aesthetically appealing when viewed from the street or footpath?
The answer, perhaps unsurprisingly, is most homeowners. Yes, most homeowners overlook many of the simplest ways to enhance the aesthetic appeal of their property from the street and instead spend far more on their properties than they need to.
From trimming the hedges and planting shrubs, to adding house numbers and changing the colour of the window trimmings. Not to mention installing a new slat fence with security gates to keep your home safe. There are countless ways to enhance your home’s appearance, something we at Sheriff Fencing & Gates know all too well as Perth’s favourite fencing contractors.
Select the Right Style
With so many fencing styles to choose from, homeowners will naturally find themselves a little overwhelmed at times. From metal fences to slat fences, garrison fencing to aluminium fencing, homeowners have a wealth of materials and styles to select from these days.
Slat fencing is one of the most popular fencing styles in recent times and not without good reason. Attractive, secure and privacy enhancing, this style works well with all property styles and comes in a wide range of options, more than enough to ensure you’re able to select the perfect fence and gates to enhance your home’s curb appeal.
Choose a Colour that Suits
With even more colours to select from than fence styles, if you found it hard to decide on a suitable fence style you’ll really have your work cut out for you when selecting a colour for your new fence. Here are a few tips for selecting an outstanding fence colour.
- Look for connections in colour schemes between the colours available and the landscaping of your garden and the exterior of your home.
- Choose a colour for the fence that works well with the pathway and driveway of your front yard.
- Neutral colours that blend in with the landscape and delineate the space between ground and sky make for a great effect.
- Consider a really bold colour, something that stands out and attracts attention, or perhaps something unexpected, something different from the prevailing colour schemes.
The colour you choose for your fence says so much about your home, and it also says something about how you see yourself in your neighbourhood. What’s more, don’t be afraid to opt for a fencing style and colour that’s different to that of your neighbours. There’s nothing wrong with setting the bar high.
