Window Grilles

You might think that trying to name the biggest fencing trends of 2022 is an impossible task. After all, fencing trends don’t change that much each year, do they? And when you consider how early the New Year is, it’s hard to know what new trends – if any – will emerge in the coming months.

Regardless, based on recent consumer behaviour and spending habits, things like sustainability, environmental awareness, remote work, and outdoor living will still influence the type of fencing that people buy in 2022 and beyond.

Let’s take a closer look at exactly what those things are.

Lighting on outdoor fencing

More and more people are entertaining outdoors. Purpose-built outdoor entertainment spaces, like decking, verandahs, and pergolas, are becoming a highly attractive option for homebuyers and owners. They give people an easy and accessible way to entertain friends and family, spend time with the kids outdoors, and unwind in the elements.

This has led to an increase in demand for associated lighting solutions for outdoor fencing. While most outdoor entertainment spaces have their own lighting, additional fence lighting can help draw attention to other features in your backyard, like your beautiful garden beds and decorations. They can also serve a practical purpose by providing light for paths and walkways.

However you wish to integrate fence lighting into your outdoor space, there are many ways you can do it. You can hang them high up to illuminate downwards, and vice versa. You can install them on hand rails to provide lighting for stairways. Again, the options are virtually limitless.

Recyclable components

Sustainability is incredibly important to new homeowners. This involves using recycled and repurposed materials to help reduce the number of materials that go to waste. As a result less waste goes to landfill.

Fencing solutions like TimberSLAT™ (which is made of aluminum) are just one of many examples of this. TimberSLAT™ both looks and performs just like real timber, replicating the natural grooves of a real wood grain while being low-maintenance and easy to install. Better still, TimberSLAT™ is resistant to termites, peeling, and flaking, so it will preserve its original charm for many years to come.

Privacy and security

With more people working from home than ever before, having a safe and secure place to work and live is becoming a high priority. This means that for some people, having a traditional balustrade fence is not enough. They want a fence that establishes a clear barrier between themselves and their neighbours. And that’s exactly where boundary fencing comes in.

Although not new, boundary fencing is increasing in popularity each year. Made from premium Colorbond steel and available in over 26 designer colours, products like the ColorMAX® range offer the privacy and security you need to feel safe in your home. The highly durable, 5-layer steel components will last for many years, with virtually no maintenance required.

Plus, you can personalize the look and feel of your ColorMAX® fence, with your choice of 3D lattices, timber slats, plastic post caps, and ball caps. This way, you enjoy a safe and secure fencing solution, one that will give your home a unique personal touch as well.

These are just some of the many fencing trends in 2022 that are dominating the industry right now.
