The arches, scrolls, pickets, and other accents that are used on an iron pool fence are the small touches that really finish off the look of the fence. These might seem like subtle points – and they are, really – but they are important points because they will help you achieve exactly the finished product that you have in mind. By taking the time needed to pick out even the smallest details, the project as a whole will wind up exceeding your expectations.
In terms of finishing touches, arches are one of the more noticeable and noteworthy additions you can make. Typically, an arch will be used as part of a gate, serving as both an added decoration and an indicator to tell visitors which section of the fence will open up to let them in. Without an arched gate, those unfamiliar with your pool might not easily be able to identify the gated section (unless something like a path points the way).
The pickets – the vertical pieces which actually do the job of keeping people and pets away from the pool – are one item which you might not think could be customized in any meaningful way. That is not the case, however. You can choose twisted pickets for an interesting look, or those with a hammered finish. Also, there are pickets which include scrolls for an additional decorative element.
With any construction project, it is often the small details which make a big difference. That holds true here as well – pick out all of the little touches that you want to include in your fence and you will love the final result once it has been installed. Iron pool fences may be about safety first and foremost, but that doesn’t mean you can’t think about style along the way.
