Iron Products – How to Pick the Right Design to Fit Your Style and Budget

Are you confused by all the options you have when picking just the right look for your next home improvement project?

Modern, industrial, classic, and so many more design influences to choose from. This can be a challenge when deciding on the exact custom iron products for your Arizona home. Getting a handle on the industry vocabulary, and then defining your personal style, can be tricky. And add to that the thousands of custom design options available with First Impression Ironworks, it can be daunting to choose which style will work best for you and your home.

Here are 5 Tips to help you get started with picking the perfect Iron Door or Gate.

1. So here’s where to begin: You’re going to be living with this product on your home for years, so make sure it’s a style that you LOVE. Step one is to look for inspiration. Have a little fun and find out your personal style here! HGTV has made it easy to narrow down what appeals to your eye and hopefully gets your creative juices flowing.

2. First Impression Ironworks has made step 2 stress-free! Whether you are looking for a security door, iron entry door, or iron & wood gate, our designs are easily accessed here so you can filter by your interest and style! This way, even before our expert ironworks design consultant comes to your home, you’ll have an idea of what’s possible and what you like in general.

3. Do you want to design something totally custom?Like something unique that you’ve never seen before on a door or gate? We’re able to make your wildest dreams come true by building the door or gate that you’ll love! Where is your inspiration being drawn from? Do you love the show Game of Thrones? Perhaps we can match a pattern from one of the chairs in the show or even a rug. Are you inspired by Andy Warhol? We can grab inspiration from there as well, duplicating a pattern just like he does on his pop art.

4. Now, take a step outside. The style of your iron door or gate should complement both the outside and the inside of your home.
What type of architectural style does your house have? Mediterranean, Tuscan, Modern, Craftsman? By noticing key items in the home, such as arch ways and light fixtures, can help narrow down the type of selections you would want to make.

5. Will you be painting your house anytime soon or are we keeping with the current color scheme? If we powder coat the door silver now, will it match with the future changes you plan to make? Perhaps we pick something that will match with the now and transition into changes you make.

In the end, be true to your own tastes. “Be faithful to your own taste,” said Billy Baldwin, “because nothing you really like is ever out of style.”
