Fences have not been common in the past, yet today they become important and fashionable among homeowners. They not only protect your home from the unwelcomed guests, but also add the last feature for the home’s façade. Of course, you have to match your existing interior design with the future fence if you aim to decorate your home and not destroy its interior forever. Right away we would give you an advice: don’t build a concrete oh high brick wall to cover your home from the neighborhood. It will only make your house look ugly and unfriendly.

If you have no idea how to increase home value with a new fence, this is the right article for you. Below you can find seven modern fence styles to make your home look and feel a better place.


1. Stone base with metal bars

Stone and steel sheets is a perfect combination that can look amazing and at the same time provide one of the highest levels of security. If you also opt for the see-through feature of the metal bars, you can highlight the exterior design of your home.

Metal grills have been used by fence contractors since the beginning of the previous century. But they look dull without some additional design. To make them look appealing you can move away from traditional horizontal strips to irregular and even chaotic patterns. Use different materials, mix grills with bricks and even coated wood to create a sophisticated exterior boundary.
