Designing a fence rightly is as important as installing it perfectly. You need a professional for the installation so that the border fence is perfect, in terms of design and security. But, while you work on the design aspect of your home fence, it is essential to think creatively as well.
Some designs would look great in the albums, but might not be suitable for your needs. Communicating your needs and purpose of installation of the border fence will help the professional suggest you the right designs. Here are a few things to consider while going for installation of a fence.
Things to Consider

While you decide the design plans, a few things need to be taken into consideration so as to get the best output. If possible, you must complement the style of the fence, with that of your house. Like for a modern style house, a modern fence will be perfect.
Multicolored Fence
Consider the climate of your area while choosing the right material. Also, whether you need complete privacy, semi-privacy, or see through boundary fence is the main aspect while deciding the design.

Apart from this, take into consideration whether you need a fence within a fence. This means a border fence for the entire house with added fences for pools, gardens, entryway, etc. In this case, you need to ensure that each of these complement each other and also the house.
Design Ideas
Picket White Fence
Wooden fence is the most common fence which can be installed in various design patterns. An extremely classy look can be achieved with a white picket fence. If you want a rustic fence to embrace your house, go for a split rail fence using pine or any other type of wood.
Backyard Fence
A solid wooden privacy fence or bamboo privacy fence with slats installed against each other with no space in between is the best idea. Also, you can opt for a concave or step design for the fence line to add to the look.
Contemporary White Fence
While you install a vinyl fence, a classic semi-privacy design can be formed with the basket weave pattern. This looks a class apart when colored in white paint. You can also get the designs customized according to your choice. Also, instead of having border fence line straight all around, you can play up its height.
Bamboo Fence
Adding variations in the height will instantly beautify the design. A mixed fence design is another unique way to add boundary to your house. This can be a mix of solid wood privacy fence and picket fence, or solid wood and crisscross design. A mix and match offers you a chance to experiment with two designs instead of one.
While you finalize the design for your home, make sure you do not ignore minor details. Like, there are a number of designs in support posts which can be considered so as to complement the fence.
White Vinyl Fence
The top part of the post is often decorated for this purpose. Also, a classic privacy fence gate available in a number of designs with light fixtures on each supporting post of the gate will rightly finish the fence line design pattern.
