When you own a home, you have the liberty of painting your fence whatever color you would like. Most people like to stick to traditional colors when painting their fence, but do not be afraid to think outside the box. Regardless, here are a few tips when considering paint colors for your fence.

Darker paint colors allow the foliage and shrubbery in your yard to stand out. The contrast in colors allows the green to pop. Most of the time you will see dark fences or the polar opposite, white picket fences.

If you are having a difficult time deciding, here is a helpful tip: print out a picture of your home. Make several copies of this photo and with the color of your choosing, draw in the fence. This will give you a better visual than just imagining it. Do not be afraid to experience with different shades and colors you may not have considered before. You will be amazed how seeing something can completely change your opinion.

After this, buy wood samples that are the same as your fence material. Narrow down your color choices, and apply the paint to them. Hold these samples in front of your house to see how each color or shade looks. Hopefully this will help you narrow down your choices even further, if not solidify a decision for you.
