4 Ways to Personalize Aluminum Fences
Strong, sturdy, and dependable are words often used to describe aluminum fences. But ask any homeowner in the know, and they may use words like fun, exciting, and customizable. It turns out there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to aluminum fences. Oh, these fences are still durable, rust-free, great for security, and affordable, costing less than most metal fences. What surprises some individuals, however, are the many ways they can be accessorized and personalized. Here are some of our favorite ways to enhance an aluminum fence.
Gates for Aluminum Fences
Fence gates are ideal for making a grand entrance to a property. Homeowners looking for a quick boost of curb appeal may prefer an estate gate at the foot of the driveway, while walk gates are equally magnificent, adding a touch of elegance to any yard, garden, or pool area. If you’re looking to maintain a sense of balance and conformity, gates can be kept even with the surrounding fence, although many individuals opt for a different dynamic. Arched fence gates are visually striking, bringing movement and flow to a fence, while others prefer a flat-topped design, yet setting it higher than the fence to bring dimension and enhance geometric appeal. There’s also a choice of using a single or double gate, giving homeowners even more options.
One of the most popular after-market accessories are decorative post caps to cover the fence’s exposed picket tops, also known as finials. Caps come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, designs, and colors, making it easy to find something you’ll love. Traditional designs include flat- and ball-shaped caps, although ornamental options also abound, including fleur de lis, spear, triad, and quad finials. Some caps even have solar lights embedded into them, providing striking mood lighting along your property’s perimeter once the sun goes down.
Aluminum Fences Scrolls
If you’re looking to add character and eye-catching flair, decorative fence scrolls provide the desired appeal. Designs range from the simple, yet elegant butterfly to more ornate models such as the estate scroll. And how you employ these ornaments is up to personal preference, as some homeowners embellish only the fence gate, while others adorn them on every fence panel. Scrolls are also a great way to make a fence flourish, with gold scrolls on a black fence offering an especially elegant aesthetic.
For a splash of color, hang flower boxes along the fence. It’s a great way to both expand your garden and form a barrier that is bursting with color. Flowers boxes take up minimal space, yet offer more opportunities to grow your favorite flowers, or even herbs for the kitchen.
