Various Styles of Historical Homes
Gothic — This style of architecture became popular starting in the 12th century. Arches, strongly representative of the Gothic look, were often used in construction. Bars were also often used as window decorations. For a Gothic-style home, you’ll want to choose an iron door with an ornate design and a pointed arch to match the period.
Cape Cod — This style of architecture became popular in New England during the 17th century. The gabled dormers of Cape Cod houses are a familiar look to many homeowners. Because of the clean cottage style, you’ll want to choose an iron door with little ornamentation. Straight lines with a simple, symmetrical design will work best with this architecture.
Georgian Colonial — This style of architecture became popular in the 18th century. Based on symmetry and proportion, the exterior of a Georgian Colonial home consists of minimal ornamentation except for the most expensive constructions. You’ll want to choose an iron door with square lines for the finest look. If you want a more decorative appearance, opt for an iron crown above the door to add interest.
Victorian — This style of architecture became popular in the early 19th century. Tudor, Romanesque, and Queen Anne designs are all examples of Victorian architecture. For these homes, you’ll want a highly decorative iron door with an intricate design. Choose arched, double doors to reflect the period and to add a majestic beauty to the exterior of your home.
