If you are going to paint your fence a dark black, dark gray or dark brown color such as B. Sadolin Ebony, creates a dramatic, modern backdrop for your garden. If you use your space to entertain and enjoy a simple, clean design, these colors will add a real architectural feel to your garden.
Classic fence colors such as earthy green and brown tones are deliberately chosen. They complement the natural colors you would see from plants and trees in your yard, allowing your fence to blend seamlessly into your yard. Classic colors like Cuprinol Wild Thyme, Ronseal Dark Oak or Ronseal Harvest Gold draw your attention to what’s growing in your garden. Try to think about what you want your fence to do – do you want to make sure it blends in or stands out?
If you want to make your fence stand out, why not choose fun pastel or bright colors? You can choose a color you’ve always loved or think about what kind of flowers grow in your garden and paint your fence to match. If you want to get bolder, painting your fence with two tones or stripes will definitely make a statement in your garden!
If you’re painting the fence in your front yard, you might want to think a little more about how the color of your fence will compare to the colors used outside your home. What color is your house? What color is the trim? What colors can you use for your fence that complement the colors already seen? These are all questions to ask yourself before deciding on a color. Think of color as language and use a color scheme to decide what you want to say about your home before people even walk through the door.
