Choosing a fence around the house allows for creativity, traditional materials also give a modern look

A fence inherently belongs to a family house in our area. Its primary purpose is to provide privacy and security, but more recently it has also fulfilled an aesthetic function. With the development of industry and new technologies, the number of possibilities and unprecedented combinations is growing. How to choose the right fencing for your dream house? First of all, you need to be clear about what is important to you. Do you want an impregnable fortress? Luxury? A touch of romance? Or perhaps a traditional look? You have a plethora of materials to choose from, from concrete to Plexiglas to wood. Let’s take a look at a few tips.


Focus on quality

The fencing around your property will be in plain sight for a long time, so you need to choose materials that are resistant to the weather and the ravages of time. These can include:

  • metal,
  • plexiglass,
  • concrete.

These types of fences are functional in terms of safety and also aesthetic appeal. On the financial side, these materials are more expensive but are virtually maintenance-free and longer lasting compared to a traditional wooden fence. Plexiglas is a novelty in private use and looks ultra-modern in combination with metal elements. The big plus (and minus) is the transparency and the feeling of being exposed, unless you live in complete seclusion. In case you guard your privacy closely and don’t want your direct neighbour to know what you had for dinner last night, a concrete fence is a good choice for you, providing you with a perfect feeling of security. Combined with wooden planks, you can create an interesting and novel look.


Tradition in a new coat

If you prefer the good old classics, choose a wooden fence. Today, even wooden fences can look modern. More and more often we see wooden planks set into posts horizontally in the manner of a fence. This is an excellent compromise between the clear Plexiglas and the opacity of concrete slabs. The advantage of wood is the variability of appearance – you can choose from a huge variety of colours and varnishes, which you can combine at will.
