  • Post category:General

When it comes to enhancing the security and aesthetic appeal of your home, few additions can match the elegance and durability of a wrought iron or metal gate. However, with a wide variety of styles available right here at SL Wrought Iron, choosing the right one that complements your home’s architecture and reflects your personal taste can be a task in itself! So, to help you out, we’re going to explore a few of the different styles of metal gates we offer, and provide some guidance on selecting the one that best suits your home.

Classic wrought iron gates

If you have a more traditional or historic home, then our Chatburn Range is a timeless choice that’s absolutely perfect for you. The intricate designs and ornate details of our Chatburn range adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any home. The distinguishing feature of these types of gates is their scrolling patterns, curves, and decorative finials, making them visually appealing and a perfect match for Victorian, Georgian, or Colonial-style homes. They’re durable, stylish, and a great option if you’re looking to add a traditional twist to your home.

Contemporary metal gates

For modern or minimalist homes, sleek and clean-lined metal gates are an excellent option. And we’ve got the perfect range to help you achieve just that – our Barnoldswick range of gates and fences are characterised by their simplicity and geometric shapes. They’re distinguished by a more conservative, toned-down design that complements a modern home aesthetic really well. Whether you require a new driveway gate, fence, tall side gate or you’ve got something else in mind, our robust Barnoldswick metal gates and railings may be just what you need to elevate your home aesthetic.

Metal gates to suit any home design

If you’re looking for a robust, modern, stylish selection of metal gates and railings, then look no further than our Great Harwood range. These gates are a great addition if you’re looking to add style, interest, or cultural heritage to your home. With round tipped bars, this range offers a softer, more luxurious aesthetic than many of our other options here at SL Wrought Iron, making them a perfect all-round choice if you’re not sure which direction to go with your gate style.

Considerations for choosing the right gate style

Now that we’ve explored a few of the options we can offer you, here are some factors worth keeping in mind when you’re selecting the gate option that best suits your home design.

  • Architectural style – this is an essential starting point. It’s always a good idea to begin by taking the architectural style of your home into account to ensure the gate harmonises with the overall design!
  • Purpose and function – you’ll also need to determine the primary purpose of the gate, as our choice may be influenced by whether you’d like it for security, privacy, or purely decorative reasons. This will help you prioritise certain design elements or features.
  • Neighbourhood aesthetics – this is a slightly more optional obligation, but you might still decide it’s worth doing; take a look at the surrounding homes and gates in your neighbourhood to ensure your gate maintains a cohesive appearance while still standing out in its own unique way.

Selecting the right metal gate style for your home involves careful consideration of various factors, and finding a gate that aligns with your home’s overall aesthetics can enhance its curb appeal, security, and create a welcoming entrance that reflects your personal style. And if you’re looking for the perfect gate to fit your home, then you’re ion the right place!
