COLORBOND® fencing has become a signature of Australian homes. Over the past 50 years, its quality features have seen it grow to be one of the most popular fencing and screening choices amongst Aussie home owners.
Deciding to choose COLORBOND® over other fence types is a simple decision. However, deciding on a fence colour can prove difficult. It’s not for lack of choice, as COLORBOND® provides a diverse colour palette to suit just about any home or landscape.
Rather, the difficulty lies in choosing the right colour to achieve the look you’re after.
If you’ve been stuck trying to decide on the perfect COLORBOND® fence colour to suit your home, here are 4 tips to help you make the right decision…
1. Imagine your fence as a photo frame
A boundary fence is like a photo frame – it borders your home and can either make a statement on its own, or be seen as purely functional.
Pick up a sample of COLORBOND® fence colours (available at our Fyshwick office) and then stand across the street from your house. Hold up each sample and contrast the colours with your picture perfect house. Imagine that the fence is a photo frame, and consider which colour makes the statement you’re trying to achieve.
You could also ask a friend, family member or neighbour for their opinion.
2. Use an online design program
There are many online programs designed to help you test colour palettes and make decisions regarding your home’s façade.
Even a standard application such as Paint can be used to manipulate an image of your house and determine whether a light, neutral or bold colour would suit the style of your home and landscaping.
3. Book a consult with a designer
Interior designers are experts at understanding how to colour match and achieve a desired look.
A simple one hour consult may shed some light on the perfect colour scheme to match your roof, brick and garden. Remember, your COLORBOND® fence is built to last and will be with you for many years to come. So don’t hesitate to seek the help of a professional in deciding which colour to choose.
