Iron Door Styles
Iron doors are available in a whole range of styles, to match the many types of home decor out there. We can create single doors, double doors, driveway gates, and more.
Ornate doors are most closely associated with traditional wrought iron. These designs have many curls and scrolls of metal, and the effect is an elegant, dramatic look. It is the perfect way to elevate your home and make it stand out. Wrought iron adds timeless style to any home.
If you have a modern style with lots of clean edges, however, you can get an iron door to match and reflect your contemporary style. There are modern styles with simple, minimal designs, but others are more decorative and abstract. Many include geometric designs as well.
Rustic designs are another popular choice. These combine simplicity with tradition, and they are designed to provide functionality as well as aesthetics. Rustic wrought iron can create a farmhouse look, or bring in the feel of a French country house to your home.
One of the best things about our forge iron doors is the ability to express yourself through the styles and designs. Your front door makes an impact on visitors, so why not create a design that reflects your home as a whole? Our designers can help you realize your vision and fine-tune your ideas.
Wrought Iron Durability
Wrought iron is a great material for doors and gates because it is one of the strongest options available. Durability is one of the most important traits to look for in a door, and it’s one of the many reasons to seek this material out.
Wrought iron stands out from other materials because of how it is created and to create one, workers will heat it, hammer it into shape, and then heat it again. The repeated heating makes this material more durable than other kinds of iron.
Daily wear and tear won’t affect wrought iron, and it takes a huge amount of force to damage or bend it. Even when it is damaged, it normally bends instead of breaking.
Unlike wooden doors, iron doesn’t shrink and expand throughout the year. The former also tend to warp over time, and they will need to be replaced eventually. By contrast, well-maintained iron doors likely won’t need a replacement during your lifetime.
Wrought iron’s strength makes it a great asset when it comes to security. Unlike wood or glass doors, iron can’t be easily broken. Having a sturdy front door can deter thieves, and it can help you sleep a little more soundly at night.
Caring for Wrought Iron
Wrought iron lasts for decades when properly cared for, and it’s easy to keep your iron in top condition.
Iron can also stand up to all kinds of weather conditions. It doesn’t catch fire or rot, and it won’t get scratched over time.
Wrought iron only requires minimal care to protect it from the elements, and rust is the biggest threat to your door. A coat of anti-rust paint will prevent corrosion and decay. The heat from the sun can fade wrought iron, so look for paints and finishes with UV protection.
It’s also a good idea to clean the iron occasionally, to remove dirt and dust that can wear away the paint. There’s no need to use any special tools to clean wrought iron. All you need is a gentle soap and water to wash away debris.
Customizing Your Forge Iron Doors
Iron doors are an eye-catching feature in any home. If you want to make sure your personality and vision for your home shows through, you can come up with a unique design for your iron door.
To get started on a custom design, consider creating a motif that you want to appear throughout the ironwork on your door. For example, a scrolling shape or a geometric design that you want to feature prominently.
You can also consider the scale of your design. Do you want small, intricate patterns or something large and eye-catching? The size and detail in the ironwork will affect the overall look.
Custom doors give you the chance to get more creative with designs. Botanical styles with flowers, bamboo, or trees are a popular choice for custom doors. Some people take inspiration from vintage decor. You may find the perfect style in art nouveau decor or mid-century modern designs.
Wrought iron can be worked into all manner of intricate shapes, so there’s no limit to what you can come up with. You can browse our gallery for inspiration on single and double doors, along with other custom designs.
