10 Beautiful Pieces of Custom Iron Artwork That Make an Impression
There is ironwork and there is First Impression custom ironwork. Until you have really seen and felt the First Impression difference, you may never truly appreciate the beauty and quality of a custom piece, made to order, from scratch, each and every time, reflecting the buyer’s personal style and taste.
With the real estate market in a volatile place, more and more homeowners are making improvements to their homes that will both increase its beauty now, while the resident can enjoy it, and improve resale value when the time comes to sell. Our custom artwork doesn’t just include doors, gates, and spiral staircases – we also offer a broad range of other made to order products that can really change the appeal of your home, enhancing it in ways you probably can’t imagine until you see it with your own eyes.
1. Glass Panel Railing
A First Impression glass stair railing is a work of art! Imagine coming in from a long day at the office and seeing a beautiful open floor plan right through the railing! Spectacular! Glass stair railings can be fabricated around an existing staircase or added to an iron spiral staircase that we make and install for you. Either way, adding a contemporary styled glass railing to your home might just be the smartest home improvement you make this year!
Ding Dong! With an entrance fit for a king, this beautiful piece of art is sure to be the envy of your neighbors! Fabricated and mounted from 16 gauge steel, a First Impression addition will make your homecoming extra sweet. Unlike many other iron improvements, you can take this one with you!
3. Tuscan Bridge
There are no trolls under this bridge; at least, not last time we looked! A hand forged iron bridge may be just the unique touch you need to finish off that outdoor oasis this season. Bridges can be made in any style, size, color and shape and will be made to measure down to the exact fraction of an inch if necessary. Place one across a pond, near a fire pit, in a courtyard or under a tree – wherever a bridge fits, we can make it happen.
While we literally have a catalog of hundreds of designs, we can always make room for one (or ten!) more. Our customers tend to have a great eye for detail, and we want to make sure that we can offer a product that will hit the mark every time. A First Impression custom design can be sketched out with the help of one of our highly trained and experienced Design Consultants and then fabricated in our Gilbert manufacturing facility from start to finish. Imagine a grand entrance like this on your home!
A screened in porch or courtyard is just the place to hang out in on a cozy spring or winter evening and this southwest themed First Impression enclosure provides just the right amount of airflow while keeping out the bugs, and letting in the light. Sun, cowboys and cacti? Sounds like a perfect Arizona evening to us!
6. Redwood Gate
There is nothing like the smell of redwood to welcome you to a backyard and we couldn’t agree more. We offer both redwood and composite wood gates that are both durable and beautiful. Requiring little maintenance, a First Impression wood gate can make your yard’s entrance look stunning!
7. Bristol Ceiling Panels
Imagine looking up from your chair and seeing these exquisite ceiling panels above you! Oh my! Live in the lap of luxury with these delicate Barcelona inspired panels which have been custom made to match all of the exterior doors on this home for a true custom feel. Lights have been mounted above them to give off a wonderful warm glow in this room. We love it!
We’ve all seen security doors that make a home look like a prison, and this one could not be further from that. Custom fabricated from 16 gauge steel with hidden vault pins for extra security, this Barcelona French security door keeps this home’s back patio doors safe from intruders, while still letting in light and air. With beautiful Tuscan scrolls, a kickplate and slimline locks which match or coordinate with one of the 60+ powder coat colors, you cannot possibly be in or outside and have that closed-in trapped-behind-bars feeling! You’ll simply marvel at the work of art before you!
9. Vistancia Window Security
This design is one we call “Vistancia” and was named after and inspired by beautiful custom homes in Peoria, Arizona. Our customers love this design which is reminiscent of hearts and delicate scrolls, and it has become a popular one for covering windows. This front door has long window either side, so we made them a security door with window guards to match in the same design. Window guards can be made to fit any window and can be opened from the inside in the event of an emergency. This is one of our favorites!
10. Fireplace Grill
Wouldn’t this be impressive in your backyard? Although small, a fireplace grill can make a big impression and we know you would love to show it off! Whether you choose a southwest inspired design or something more contemporary, a little design flair like this can really make the finishing touches to your backyard fire feature. We can fabricate a design to match any existing backyard ironwork or make a suggestion from our extensive catalog, the choice is yours!
