HomeBlogFence Painting: How to Choose the Perfect Color

Does your faded, weather-beaten fence need some TLC? A fresh coat of paint can make it look brand new! But with so many color options to choose from, picking that perfect color can be dizzying. Do you play it safe with neutrals or go bold with vivid hues? Does the color complement your home or landscape?

Fence Painting: How to Choose the Perfect Color

If you’re facing a similar dilemma ahead of your highly anticipated fence painting project, take a minute to go through these color considerations:

  1. What’s Your Exterior Siding’s Color? If your home’s siding is a neutral beige or gray, you’ll want your fence to complement it without blending in all the way. Go for off-white, light gray, or taupe fence colors to coordinate. For a home with blue, green, or red siding, match the undertones but go a few shades lighter or darker.
  2. What Type of Fence Do You Have? The material of your fence will also impact your color options. If you have a classic wood fence, timeless white is a safe choice for making your home pop. A natural stain that enhances the wood grain is also a great option. Grays and darker neutrals will hide wear best in an aluminum fence, besides giving it a more prominent and modern look.
  3. How Big is Your Yard? A small plot can handle a punchy red, sunny yellow, or even black fence painting. Larger properties, in contrast, are better suited to lighter tans, taupes, and beiges that recede into the surroundings.
