  • Post category:General

We’re proud to supply a wide variety of wrought iron gates and railings here at SL Wrought Iron, serving customers all across the North West. With decades of experience behind us, we know exactly how to help our customers match their choice of wrought iron gates or railings to the style of their property. Sometimes it’s an easy decision, whereas in other instances, it can be surprisingly tricky to narrow down your choices. 

So if you’re still making your final decision, we’ve rounded up some of our most popular ranges according to the styles of property they’re most often matched with. It may help to give you just that burst of inspiration you need!

The best-wrought iron gates or railings for a rural style

For a country house or one nestled in rural scenery, we’d always highlight our Ribchester range first. Its distinctively ornate detailing makes it the epitome of the highly popular Victorian style, evoking long walks, sunny days, and high tea. It’s without question the perfect gate to add that extra bit of country charm to your property. 

Customers who find themselves taken with our Ribchester range also often find themselves considering our Chatburn range, and for good reason. Those distinctive Victorian touches are once again evident, although this time paired with straight lines, giving it a subtle but palpable modern touch – one that still doesn’t dampen its affinity for rural homes and properties. 

The best wrought iron gates or railings for a modern style

The round tipped bars of the Great Harwood range give it an immediately softer, more luxurious feel, and that’s one of the elements that make it so perfectly suited to more modern styles of home. The detailing, too, is a little more modest, with simple rings to give the range that extra touch of character. 

And speaking of which – if simplicity is what you’re looking for, look no further than our Longridge range, the ultimate in simple but stylish design. Its bars end in measured, uncomplicated arcs, giving the entire railing an exceptionally pleasing symmetrical feel. 

The best wrought iron gates or railings for a blended style

If you’re looking for the best of both worlds, we’d always recommend giving our Belthorn range a look. It effortlessly fuses modern rounded tops (similar to the Great Harwood range) with more classically-inspired Victorian twists, seamlessly combining traditional charm with the softer appearance that’s so characteristic of modern styles. 

Those are just our suggestions, of course, and they’re not necessarily hard and fast rules. Indeed, sometimes contrasting the style of your home and the choice of your gate can create some fascinating final effects – and some make some quite unique impressions on passers-by, visitors, and potential buyers, too! Ultimately, the decision is yours.
