There is a cornucopia of choices when it comes to iron doors for your home. There are doors that resemble something from a castle keep, doors that let in the light, and doors whose iron decorations resemble something tie-dyed. Picking the one that will work the best for your own abode can give you choice over-load.
The best way to decide on the door is to narrow down your options with a few questions about its function, and then keep your search within those parameters. It will make picking the right one easier, and will also make sure you pick the one that really does work best for you.
What are these questions?
- Where is the iron door going? If you are picking a door for the front entrance, you will probably want something that protects your privacy and looks elegant yet imposing from the curb. Something with pretty wrought iron decorations over frosted glass will work very well. On the other hand, a door leading out to the backyard should emphasize the view from indoors, and you probably won’t be as concerned with the privacy factor. The metro line, with its in-built windows, might be a better pick for a back door.
- What effect do you want from the door? A door with a lot of glass lets light into your house, making your rooms look bigger and saving you money on lighting. A narrow, tall door can make your front look bigger, and the inside feel taller. A wide door can make a house look more spacious, and it can make getting large things in and out easier.
- What will match the rest of the house? If you are going for a modern feel for your home, steel muntins on glass is a good choice. If your decorating style tends toward a more rustic look, wavy lines of iron will complement your home well.
