The Illusions accent gate idea is so simple, it’s practically unfair. But it works. And it works great!
What’s the difference between a matching gate and an accent gate? Good question. In the context of Illusions Vinyl Fence and Eastern Ornamental (Aluminum) Fence, a matching gate is a gate that matches the look and style of the fence pretty much exact. A nice matching gate can certainly look perfect in certain situations (such as the image below). Whereas an accent gate is something different and special that calls attention to the gate. Often times, a curved or arched gate is used for effect. Sometimes it’s just a gate from a different style of fence altogether. Either way, it adds an interesting visual element to the look of the fence and entranceway. Pergolas, arbors, and majestic posts can also be used to give life to the accent gate.
