8+ Varieties of Wrought Iron Doors for Your Properties

What do you usually have in mind when you think of wrought iron doors? Most people will probably associate them with fences or garden doors. Others may also imagine them as part of a mansion instead of a regular house.

Whatever it is, you can do a lot with wrought iron doors. You do not have to own a mansion or a fancy business property. To add some curb appeal, elegance, and luxury, you can use them for everything you want.

1. The Black Single Wrought Iron Doors

Even if your house is not that big and simple, you can still make it look elegant. One way to do so is to have a wrought iron door. You can have more than one, though. If you do not want to overdo it, the front door is enough.

Once of the weaknesses of having a glass window on the door is the peeping tom. Another one is a possible break-and-entry. To avoid the latter, apply some wrought irons to cover the window on the door.

2. The Dark Brown, Double Wrought Iron Doors

Having wrought iron doors does not mean they always have to be all black. There are other neutral or monochromatic colors to choose, like dark brown, army green, navy blue, and even dark grey.

These double doors are dark grey and pretty wide. Obviously, they are also for bigger buildings, like apartments or office spaces. For a more majestic touch, the handlebars are also made of brass and are on the center of the double doors.

3. The Black Single Wrought Iron Doors with Panels

For another variety, you can have your single wrought iron door with matching panels on each side. The wrought iron bars can be molded into the shapes of vines, so they will not feel like iron bars of a prison.

The matching panels (also with vine-like, wrought iron bars) make a nice addition to the already majestic-looking door. For the windows on the door and the panels, make sure they are not super clear to avoid peeping toms looking in easily.

4. The Black, Double Wrought Iron Doors with Mirrors

Here is another way to have your wrought iron doors look especially fancy and more private: place mirrors instead of windows. That way, your guests will not be able to peek inside as they stand by the door.

If the rectangular-shaped double doors feel too strict and rather uptight to you, the top can be made into a circular shape. The long, handlebars on the centre of the doors can also be made of brass or iron bars too. It is up to you.

5. The Black Single Door with Golden-Painted Wrought Iron

If you would like to have more colors, here is a design that might suit you. The single door is still black, but the wrought iron design is painted with gold. The design does not always have to be like vines.

In fact, this design is much simpler. If this is not for private homes, you can definitely use this design for your office property. Create your company logo on this door, and the signature sticks to the mind of every visitor.

6. The Dark Double Wrought Iron Doors with Stained Glass

These dark double wrought iron doors can be either black, blue, green, grey, or even brown. These doors are well-matched with a dark, red brick wall as the building exterior. They represent majesty, privacy, and perhaps they also feel a bit chilly.

What makes these doors look more private (and not-so-inviting) is the stained glass window behind the wrought iron design. It definitely helps to hide what is inside while the door stays shut. They look much better for companies or other business places.

7. The Dark Double Wrought Iron Doors with Steel Bars and Hinged Glass Windows

Why choose these dark double wrought iron doors? No worries, the steel bars in the design will not make you feel like you are in prison. They are quite widely-gapped between one another, and there is an ornament on the top.

The glass is hinged, so you can have easy access to clean and ventilate when necessary. There is even a window lock control for the opening and closing of the glass frame.

8. The Well-covered, Dark Wrought Iron Door

Last but not least, this is the wrought iron door without any window. Everything is well-covered in iron. You can go with any monochromatic colors you can think of. This type of door is usually created with electronic devices to operate it.

This type of door may not work well in tropical areas, because it can entrap heat inside. However, this type of door is also not that good when the temperature gets too cold. The bottom line is, whatever behind this door should be just stuff instead of humans.

You can vary the designs when it comes to wrought iron doors. Make sure that whatever you choose is suitable for what you need.
