2023 is just around the corner, which means we’re eager to discuss fencing trends predicted for the New Year. Typically, at FloriFence our busiest seasons are in the spring and summer, but it’s never too early to start thinking of your next remodeling project. If you’re looking to change up your fence design with something truly unique, consider one of these five trendy designs for 2023:
Mixed horizontal and vertical wood fencing
Vertical wood fencing has been the norm for decades, but recently some homeowners are changing things up by building their wood fences horizontally. This can create a striking, rustic appearance for backyard fences. Try mixing the best of both worlds by using a vertical wood gate for your horizontal fence. This gives you the rustic appeal of the horizontal look, but with added dimension and texture that transforms this look into a truly modern one.
Wire and wood fencing
If you’re looking for a simple and affordable yet strikingly modern fence design, try a wire and wood combination. This fence design is minimalist and works for both suburban and rural areas. It is also one of the most aesthetically pleasing and affordable options and requires little to no maintenance throughout the year.
Decorative vinyl fencing
Most vinyl fencing is designed to look like wood fencing, but that’s not your only option. Vinyl fencing can be designed in large slats with decorative cut-outs or designs engraved. This creates a striking, modern look to your fencing that will make all of your neighbors jealous. This option is expensive, though, so many homeowners opt for this type of fencing only for retainer fencing or a small section of the yard.
Decorative fence toppers
A classic privacy fence is never a bad choice, but if you want something more interesting to look at, consider adding a curved topper to create a wave-like pattern for your wood fence. For aluminum, instead, add an ornate fence topper to create a more regal appearance for your fence and gates.
Most homeowners paint their wood fences for their protective coating, but this isn’t your only option. If you have a fence with a beautiful wood grain consider staining it instead to preserve its natural beauty. Wood stains are just as effective as paint at creating a water-resistant barrier, and are actually easier to reapply because you don’t have to strip the old coat to paint over it.
