How many times have you dreamed of marrying Tom Selleck and settling down in an adorable cottage surrounded by a white picket fence? While Tom Selleck has come to symbolize a version of the perfect man, the white picket fence has come to symbolize the perfect home. But these fences aren’t merely fanciful—they’re also practical. Typically standing no higher than 48 inches, they are great for keeping pets and children alike contained without obstructing those idyllic views. A white picket fence can also partition off different sections of a garden and won’t keep that curb appeal hidden from envious neighbors. While this type of fence is typically constructed from wood, they can also be made from PVC and vinyl. Although some people may opt for a more natural finish, most prefer the look of a crisp white paint. Here’s a tip: An oil-based paint is a better bet when it comes to staying fresh for years to come. There are also a variety of picket styles to choose from, including dog ear, gothic, spear, and more. After you get inspired by our white picket fence gallery, you can choose what works best for you and then get to work on planning the other part of your happily ever after.
