Modern Fences for Modern Homes

August 3, 2018 ~ Posted By Jim Jenkins


RiverPlace, just outside of the Frederick City Limits, offers home buyers the potential to live in a modern environment.

When you drive through neighborhoods in the Maryland, DC and Northern Virginia area, one of the trends you’ll encounter are more contemporary building styles in new developments. For example, the River Place townhomes by Wormald resemble a futuristic city with their clean lines and minimalist facades. Visit any of the newest Toll Brothers homes in Loudoun or Montgomery County and you’ll see homes that combine elements like brick and stone to form homes that look as if they were plucked right out of stylish urban metropolis.

If you’re looking for your first home or wish to move to a more urban and modern community, you’ll also want a fence that complements a contemporary home. There are some great modern fence and gate options available to you, many of which combine manufactured with natural materials. Here are some of our options for fences for these modern style homes:

Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl fencing represents the new standard for most housing communities sprouting up in the area. Vinyl fencing is one of the most durable fences as it never fades, warps, bows or rots and can

withstand the harshest weather conditions. These modern house fence designs maintain the beauty within a planned community and create great curb appeal when it’s time for putting the house on the market.

Vinyl fencing offers homeowners many choices when it comes to colors and textures—some vinyl now looks like wood to where you must get up close to see that the fence is manufactured and not

natural! You can also have your panels be one color and your posts a different one to create a more futuristic and eye-popping space. Many homeowners prefer vinyl privacy fences to create a private oasis in their backyard while making use of vinyl split rail or pickets in front.

The best thing about vinyl fencing is that you’ll install just one fence as they last for many years. Depending upon the community you choose, you can often roll the cost of your fence into the mortgage. When you purchase a Wormald townhome at Eastchurch in Frederick, you automatically get a six-foot, white vinyl privacy fence!

Aluminum Fence

Aluminum fence with a flat rail to enclose the panel complements a minimalist style home.

Aluminum fence is a popular option for modern homes as this fence’s panels carry the clean lines from the home to the ends of the yard. Home owners traditionally install aluminum fence with ornamental fence caps or finials; for homes with a modern look, a clean fence rail at the top of the panel helps maintain the minimalist look the home conveys. You can also combine other elements such as brick or stone for a base and then install an aluminum fence on top to create more visual interest.

Wood Fence

Even though wood is one of the oldest and most traditional of fence materials, you can still create a modern look with a contemporary wood fence! For example, you can build a privacy fence where the wood planks are attached horizontally as opposed to vertically. You can also choose to create a wave effect with the boards or integrate metal shelves and lights within the fence. You can also stain and seal the fence with colors that complement the home—such as black, gray or dark brown. You can also build fence made from square pickets and install a top rail that squares off the fence, giving it a more modern look.

True, you will need to maintain this fence and reseal it or replace boards or panels over time, but wood fence makes sense if you’re trying to design a minimalist looking perimeter to match the look an feel of modern architecture on your property.
