As the name suggests, a privacy fence is meant to offer your property a little more privacy. With that said, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a fence that looks stylish. There are plenty of manners in which you could style a privacy fence so that you are more proud of its overall look. These are a few options you could try to put a little more style into your privacy fence.
A lot of privacy fences will come with a flat top railing, but it’s perfectly fine to expose the tops of your fence since it’s made from pickets. It’s a little out of the ordinary, but it creates an interesting look for your fence.
By having exposed pickets serve as your top, it allows you to decide what shape your panels will have. Some of the more common selections include convex and concave.
Double Top Rail
On the opposite side of the coin, rather than exposing the picket tops, you could double up on your fence railing. The first rail is placed wherever it’s needed to keep all of the boards where they need to be. A top rail gets placed just a little higher than the initial rail. This method of construction is perfect if you want to add a lattice panel onto the top of your fencing. However, if you don’t want to go with a lattice panel, there are other options.
Instead, you could go with straight balustrades placed between your two fence rails. You could have horizontal slats go between the rails as well. Going with designs such as these allows your fence to achieve a more modern appearance.
Wood doesn’t necessarily need to be the one material in your wooden privacy fence. You could also use other materials alongside it, like metal or stone. If you put privacy panels between posts made of stone, you create a wonderful classic look, or you could try to achieve a modern look by using metal alongside your wood instead.
