Wrought iron is a classic element, and bringing this strong look into your home can make it stand out in subtle, yet bold ways.
According to Monte Cristo Ironworks, Oklahoma City's family-owned-and-operated iron experts, wrought iron can be used to add a new look to doors, home interiors and exteriors and beyond. Iron can add a rustic, antique look to a home or can have that modern, futuristic vibe. Either way, wrought iron gives you the ability to go a different direction and make your home stand out in ways that wood and composites can't do.
Dustin Chilcoat, owner of Monte Cristo Ironworks, shares six ways iron can be incorporated into your home design.
1) Doors for extra light and openness. Ironwork is a stylish replacement for old wooden doors and remains strong for many years. Most of Monte Cristo's classic designs have an operable glass, which also let in light.
2) Solid steel doors for added security. Steel doors can be both interior and exterior doors designed to offer extreme protection while looking beautiful. These steel doors can be matched to your existing doors and can be fully customized to your size, style, and finish preferences.
3) Decorative iron scrollwork that is customized for each home. Flights of fancy start here with beautiful iron scrollwork for doors ranging from traditional to modern styles. The options are endless when it comes to using decorative scrollwork to boost the appeal of a home.
4) Ornamental Corbels to support shelving. For countertops made of heavy material, such as granite or marble, iron corbels and brackets add not only needed support but elegance and style, as well.
5) Quality iron mailboxes for curb appeal. Adorning one’s home with ornamental decorative ironwork makes a robust statement about old-world refinement. Adding a decorative iron mailbox communicates to the world a bold view of the estate’s stability and strength.
6) Western Multi-slide aluminum units to create indoor/ outdoor space. The choice of builders for over two decades, the Volume Program’s Series 600 Multi-Slide Door features moving walls of glass that stack or slide into pockets for extra-wide openings that eliminate the barrier between indoors and out.
Thermally broken aluminum and dual-paned low-E glass make the Series 600 energy efficient. Sealed stainless steel ball-bearing rollers make it easy to operate, even with large panel sizes, and a 90-degree alternative eliminates a connecting post for uninterrupted indoor-outdoor living.
