Modern-style fencing adds to your home’s curb appeal. Additionally, the type of fence you choose will determine the level of security and privacy you can enjoy. For any modern-day homeowner, finding a fence that can serve this three-fold purpose is always an advantage.
There are numerous modern fence styles, and thanks to human ingenuity, the list will only continue to grow every day. Here’s a look at a few of these modern fence styles:
The white picket fence will never go out of style, and it’s as popular a style today as it was when it was first designed. Although not very secure, picket fences are very attractive and inviting. Walk down the street in any neighborhood and you are sure to find several picket fences.
You can have a wooden, vinyl or metallic picket fences. You can also play around with the pickets in terms of the spacing, and the design at the top to add character to your home, as well as give your fence a more contemporary look.
Bamboo fences are an absolute sight and the natural-looking color of the bamboo stalks goes well with just about any landscape. The bamboo stalks can also be stained for a more sleek appearance. The fence design is also elegantly simplistic as it’s just stalks of bamboo lined up with wooden frames at intervals.
Textured Concrete Fence Walls
Textured concrete fences are stunningly beautiful and very modern. The solid design makes this fence look elegant and it’s great choice to any homeowner looking to add style to their property. Aesthetics aside, these fences are functional and an invaluable addition to the security and protection system of any property.
Estate fencing is another contemporary fencing style. It sits low and is typically a three-rail fence with the horizontal rails supported by the connecting frames or posts. The design is simple, yet sleek, and the fence can be made from wood, vinyl or metal. You can paint the fence any color, but white is usually a popular choice – especially if you have a lush garden on your property.
Wrought iron and aluminum are the most commonly used metals in fencing. Depending on your individual taste, you can choose to go for a minimalist look or opt for a fence decorated with elaborate and detailed designs in different shapes. Not only do metallic fences look good, but they are also good for enhancing privacy and security.
Stone fences look great – and so do the metallic fences! Combine the two into one and you have a stylishly modern design. Mixed-material fences exquisitely bring together the best of what each material has to offer, often times striking that elusive balance between functionality and aesthetics. You can also have the traditional wooden fencing and have it supported by sturdy metallic frames.
Glass fences and railings are perfect for the modern home with a pool. This contemporary fencing lets you enjoy an unobstructed view of your yard, unlike other fencing materials such as wood or stone.
