Design Trends: Horizontal, Cable & Mixed Materials
If it’s time to replace an old fence or deck railing, consider some of these latest trends. We offer a wide range of styles, materials, and designs that can be customized to enrich the look of your home. The goal of our custom designs are to complement the existing architecture so that it looks like it was always part of the original plan. By using different styles and colors, you can open up views in some areas and create privacy in others.
Trend #1: Horizontal
Horizontal board fences are a fresh take on the traditional wood privacy fence. The horizontal board creates a clean, modern look while maintaining needed privacy. Below is an example of a modern Western Red Cedar fence that was used to elegantly section off the Japanese Garden style space and create a truly tranquil retreat.
Here, the use of horizontal boards creates just enough privacy while adding a creative backdrop to the enclosed area.
Trend #2: Mixed materials
Most people tend to approach fencing design with a fixed mindset, believing that they need to settle on a single material or style for their entire project. On the contrary, we find that mixing multiple materials and styles can lead to a distinct and appealing result. The below project illustrates this perfectly by featuring a wood-framed mesh double gate, stainless steel cable railing and a Cellular Vinyl pergola.
Trend #3: OpenView Cable Railings
Cable is a great railing solution to ensure unobstructed views and add rich architectural details. Perfection Fence OpenView series of cable railing combines the highest quality cable materials with our signature vinyl post options. Below is an example of stainless-steel horizontal OpenView cable railing framed by ForeverVinylTM posts and caps for a clean look and unimpeded ocean view.
In the following image, our OpenView cable railing beautifully compliments the design of this bungalow while adding needed safety around the deck- all without blocking the view of the pool area.
Count on Perfection Fence for all your custom design needs. Keep in mind, “custom” doesn’t always equate to costly. Instead, it simply implies that your fence will be made to perfectly fit and often enhance your space. In fact, using the right materials and styles from the start (versus retrofitting) is a more efficient and cost effective means to getting exactly what you want!
