Many homeowners want a simple and straightforward gate that exactly matches their choice of fence. Others want to flex their creative muscles and make the gate area stand out. For the latter folks there are a few rules of thumb that can help:
Open Up the View:
Choosing a style of gate that is more see-through than the fence beside it is the simplest and most eye-catching option. Note: the gate doesn’t have to be the same material as the fence. For example, choose an Iron Gate with a privacy Vinyl fence. The observer’s eye will be drawn to the area that isn’t closed off with privacy boards and the entire fence system will feel more inviting.
Add an Overhead Feature:
This can be a simple Vinyl Brace or a more elaborate Vinyl Arbour. A good tip: if you choose a gate height lower than usual it will enhance the view of the arbour from all angles.
Add Pillar Posts:
Oversized Vinyl Pillar Posts work beautifully with Vinyl gates to give your real estate a stately profile.
