One of the best comforts of home is the privacy it gives you. Even in your Pasadena backyard, you want to feel like you can retreat from the world in your little slice of paradise. Separation from prying eyes, other houses, and the hustle and bustle of the roads around you can help you achieve the feeling of seclusion. In Los Angeles, installing a fence is a vital step to achieving home privacy. Here are some unique modern metal fence design ideas!
Modern Metal Fence Design
1. Horizontal Slats
Installing slat fencing is an easy way to modernize your yard. Metal slats are tough, long-lasting against the elements, and easy to maintain. Slat fencing provides significant privacy. If it is painted black, it has a very modern look. Metal slats do not warp, twist, or show signs of wear and can be used as part of a gate and other outdoor hardscapes to get a cohesive look throughout your yard.
2. Wrought Iron Fencing
Wrought iron is a timeless outdoor staple that can be contemporized to match your aesthetic. Wrought iron fences allow ventilation for your yard, provide home protection, and are remarkably durable. They can be modernized on the top with more angular or geometric patterns. Keep in mind, though, that wrought iron must be repainted periodically.
3. Mixed Materials and Metals
If you already have an existing fence made of other materials, try mixing in metal to modernize it. Using multiple materials can be a creative design choice that turns your fence into a statement piece. Replace alternating sections with metal slats, wrought iron, or artistically etched metal. We recommend choosing neutral hues for a modern look.
4. Vertical Metals
Try getting creative with a vertical metal fence to add height to your landscaping. Large metal panels installed vertically can be both modern and sophisticated, looking like a contemporary art installation and providing the utmost privacy. Or, install a metal floating vertical fence that allows for more airflow while contributing to a modern feel. Alternatively, black steel pikes are another unique, artsy option.
