Your neighbors recently installed a fence around their property. You'd been thinking about getting one for your own place for a while, but seeing how nicely their fence accented their house sealed the deal for you. Now you just need to figure out some good house and fence color combinations.
Fencing is common on many properties, residential or not. While the primary purpose of a fence is to keep a place safe or secure, it can also serve an aesthetic purpose. Some people may already have a very specific fence in mind, while others might want to browse their options and seek professional advice for what will look best around their property. In either situation, Northland Fence has your back. With over 15 years of experience in the fencing industry, we're well-versed in fence design and can help you find the perfect fence for your home.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind when you're thinking about how to pair a fence with your home. One of those things is the base color of your house, another is the accent colors, and the third is the style of your home.
A good way to look for inspiration for potential combinations can be walking or driving around your neighborhood. See what other people have done and take note of things you like and things you don’t. Not everyone’s taste is going to be exactly the same, regardless of current trends.
White and black still remain some of the most popular fencing color options for a good reason. They go with nearly anything, and if you decide to change your house color later, you’re less likely to need to change your fence design, too.
The popularity of certain fence designs can vary depending on what kind of home you’re looking at. For example, a more modern home might be more inclined to have an ornamental steel fence whereas a ranch-style home might have a more classic vinyl or picket fence.
If you have a brick home and are looking for fencing options, it’s important to keep in mind the kind of brick you have. Some bricks are more sandy in color, while others are a much richer red clay color. This could impact what color of fence you might want.
Generally speaking, white and black are always safe options for nearly any home exterior.
Do contrasting tones look okay? Does a light-colored house mesh with a dark-colored fence?
This appearance is actually not uncommon in the world of fencing. Some people like a fence that pops because it stands out against the house, while others would rather their fence blend in more. If your fence is darker than your house, it can be less attention-grabbing, making your house more of a focus. Depending on the purpose you want your fence to serve, a contrasting fence color could work very well for you.
Some people would prefer that their fences not be so showy. Perhaps they want it more for the security of keeping their pets and kids in than the additional visuals it can provide. Sometimes we just want a nice fence that compliments our yard or garden.
This is always possible. You could get a vinyl fence in brown tones, or a nice black ornamental fence that blends well with nature, too. The ability to see through an ornamental steel fence combined with black blending into the surroundings well makes it mesh fairly well with any yard or foliage.
Chainlink fencing is another solid option, especially for a garden where your goal is to keep out any critters. With our vinyl coating on our chainlink, they have a nice black finish to help better blend in with your garden or yard without taking away from it.
Many people like sprucing up their home to add just a bit more appeal to it. Sometimes a new coat of paint can do wonders for the exterior of a home. People often ask us about color combinations and what works best for curb appeal.
This answer, of course, depends on the color of your home. If you have a neutral-colored home already, finding a nice blue or green can change things up a bit. Alternatively, if you have a darker neutral color, a nice pop of white can make a huge difference.
What other ways can you boost your curb appeal?
If you’re uncertain about exactly how you want your home to look, there are many online resources like Pinterest or even Google Street View that you can use to look at other homes from around the world.
At the end of the day, the most important person to ask is yourself and those who live in the home. You should be the person who is most happy with the color of your home and fence.
Sometimes, though, knowing what options you have that are readily available can help narrow down the choice for you. That’s why our team at Northland Fence always has our fencing materials in stock and available for you to see at our showroom. Browsing the color selections and seeing them in person can help you figure out which one really catches your eye.
If you live in an HOA, it is important to note if there are any color restrictions before you make a decision so you don’t have to worry about being potentially fined.

The fence around a property doesn’t have to be the same exact color as the main color of the house. White and black fences, for example, can complement nearly any house color. Some people might choose to have their fence match the accent color of their house.
If you want a color that you won’t have to worry about ever clashing with your house, white or black are both very solid options.
Attractiveness varies depending on your own taste, your surroundings, and even the style of your house. While neutral colors can usually be safe, that doesn’t mean that other colors like yellows, greens, or blues can’t also be attractive in the right scenario.
