Fences really enhance a property and can add a level of security to your space. Whether residential or commercial, you’ll find that fencing will help you achieve a number of goals, including:

  • More privacy
  • Keeping pets and children enclosed
  • Preventing trespassers
  • Preventing animals from entering
  • Enhancing the view

Once you’ve selected your fencing, however, you may want to look at painting it. There are several options for fence colours, including leaving it as plain wood, staining it, or you can paint the fence.

Choosing the Right Fencing Colours

Selecting the perfect colour can take some time and like your home, it may require some paint testing to see which looks best. Here are a few things to consider.

Light colours make spaces look larger. If you have a small garden, you may wish to paint the fence white or a pale colour to provide the illusion of more space.

Darker colours tend to look more modern or contemporary and can be rather professional when used correctly. If you are fencing for a business, you may wish to use one of the darker logo colours to help with continuity.

If you have a plentiful garden, plants often look best against a darker grey or bright white fence. However, dark coloured fences are truly stunning in a garden with a pool.

The Most Popular Fencing Colours

Wondering what colour people use most for their fences? The biggest contender is white or off-white, but there are other colours that are quite popular, as well.

Grey: Whether warm or cool, you can’t go wrong with a pale grey for a small space or a darker grey if you want something a bit more contemporary.

Green: Another very popular option is a shade of green. Usually these lean toward a darker, grey or brown toned green that matches with nature.

Beige: This pale tan colour or even moving into pale yellow, can be a good addition to a home and makes the fence look sunny and bright, even if the actual tone is not that bright.

Brown: It may sound dull, but there are so many shades of brown that you can easily find the right one for your needs. In most cases, you can simply stain the fence to get the shade you want. This allows the wood grain to show through, as well.

Before you can paint it, you need to install the fence. Groundforce can help you with that. Learn more about our fencing choices today.
