Adding Charm and Security by Using Wrought Iron Gates in Your Home

Whether you are building a new home, remodeling an existing one, or just want to add a touch of class, wrought iron says quality. Wrought iron is made by heating a bar of iron until it is pliable. Then it is hammered and bent into shape twists, spirals and swirls and used to create beautiful fences, railings and gates that can be used in home or commercial applications. Just think of all the photo-worthy ways you could incorporate wrought iron gates into your home.

 

Safety

If you have small children or pets in the home, low iron gates are a beautiful and effective way to block an entrance (or exit) into certain areas of the house. The doors can remain open while the gate allows your child or pet to be within eyesight and not feel isolated. This would be a great use across a kitchen opening or at the top or bottom of a stairway.

 

Security

Life in a big city can be full of excitement and adventure, but depending on where you live, you may find it wise to install bars over the windows for added security. Don’t settle for just any old straight metal bars – you are not in jail here – choose the glow of decorative wrought iron gates to cover your windows and your home will look stately, rather than prisonlike.

 

Beauty

An iron gate lends unforgettable charm to your backyard sanctuary. A delightful iron gate with a curved top and a few ornamental features turns the walkway to your garden into a gateway into paradise. Add a gate to a backyard gazebo or the entrances of a breezeway to keep animals out and add a decorative touch.

 

Professional installation will ensure that your gates are attached securely and are durable as well as beautiful. Have your contractor discuss with you all of the ways that decorative wrought iron gates can add to the safety and curb appeal of your home.
