How painting your fence panels provides atmosphere to your garden

Different colours can invoke different emotions within people, which means they’re a brilliant tool in helping to create a specific atmosphere for your space.

At Welch Fencing, we know the same logic is true when applied to your garden setting. More specifically, to your fencing panels. So, if you’re thinking about painting your fence panels to give them a refreshing update, or you’re looking to change the mood of your garden space, here’s our quick guide on how painting your fence panels impacts the atmosphere in your garden.

Black/dark paint

This is bold choice that’s perfect if you’re trying to make a dramatic statement in your garden. It’s a colour scheme that requires a lot of thought before committing to it, but if you implement it with care, you’ll bet left with a beautiful neutral shade which you can use as the focal point of your entire garden design. Dark tones, especially black, give your garden more of an edge when compared to lighter colours. Subsequently, they’re a bit more suited to modern garden settings over more traditional spaces. The dark shade helps to highlight any greenery within your garden, while adding definition to your space with a clearly defined border.

Driftwood colour

A modern day favourite. ‘Driftwood’ is one of the most versatile colours that you can apply to your fence panels. The welcoming, rustic warmth of the soft grey hue pairs well with pretty much everything. The versatility of this colour is what makes it so unique – whether you’re opting for a more traditional design, or something with a bit more of a contemporary feel, the weathered wood effect of driftwood paint will help you to subtly create a relaxing atmosphere, regardless of your design.

Light wood shades

The perfect choice if you’re looking to create a bright, summery garden atmosphere that’s ideal if you love nothing more than spending time in your garden hosting friends and family. Lighter wooden shades evoke an inherently social atmosphere, and offer a timeless charm that will never go out of fashion. As a result of its endearing quality, classically light shades fit well in a variety of garden settings, from modern contemporary, to classic naturalistic. If you’re on the fence about what colour to choose, a light wood shade is definitely the safest bet.

A fresh coat of paint is a great way to give your fence panels a new lease of life. However, if they’ve seen better days and a new coat won’t quite cut it, you’re in the right place here at Welch Fencing. If you’re in need of any replacement fencing boards, concrete posts or ancillaries, we’ve got plenty of options for you to explore right here on our site!

Most of the timber fencing that we supply is pressure treated, which minimises the amount of moisture both entering and leaving the wood.
