Gate accessories turn a gap in your fence into a place of welcome.
What was just a gate will become a welcoming entrance to your home, and can help your house stand out from others on the block.
There is an excellent selection of accessories for your gate and fence posts, from which to choose.
Many accessories have other functions too, on top of looking good, which add to their value.
Next time you’re passing through the gate, think of much nicer it would look if you add an accessory or two to brighten up the area.
If you want to make a statement with gate accessories, then take a look at these pointers:
- Lighting adds security
- Topping off the gate posts
- Ornamental lighted post caps
- Add a touch of color
Let’s take a closer look to see how an accessory can brighten up your humble gate.
Lighting adds security
A gate is an entrance to your home or backyard.
Without any lighting it can be dark and a bit off-putting for visitors, but not for those who want to sneak onto the property.
A light, or a set of lights, on the gate and the approaching fence posts will welcome visitors.
A well-lit gate will also tell others that you can see what’s happening out there.
Our White Aluminum Imperial Solar Light adds a nice touch of security to the gate area, without turning the spot into the entrance to the county jail.
The well-lit entrance will also catch the eye of visitors who may be looking for your home.
Top off the gate posts
Your gate posts do an essential job of keeping the gate in place.
By adding a few ornamental gate post caps, you will be making them stand out that bit more.
There is a great range from which to choose, such as the Gothic Post Cap or the New England Ball cap, which will give the gate a touch of elegance.
Post caps are easy to retrofit, as you can get fence post adapters which fit onto the post and into which the cap easily clips.
Ornamental Lighted Post Caps
If you really want to make a statement with the gate accessory try adding an ornamental lighted post cap.
The elegant style of the light will make the gate stand out, and the neighbors will be wondering where you got such style.
The Black Aluminum Elegante Solar lamp fits easily onto your gate post and it will immediately add a touch of class.
Adapters are available for easy fitting.
As the lamp is solar powered you can do all the work yourself.
There is no need for running unsightly wires or trying to find a power source in the garden.
The Stained Glass Wellington lamp really is something that bit different and is as easy to fit as the other fence accessories.
Add a touch of color
If you have a metal gate consider painting it a different color to the fence.
It will make make the entrance area stand out a bit more.
An advantage of vinyl fencing is that you can choose from a range of colors.
A custom-built gate, in a different shade, will make a statement about your sense of style.
By lighting the entrance at night you will not only draw attention to the gate, but you will also enhance security.
A wooden gate will benefit from regular painting, and by trying a different color you will be making a statement.
