by Charlie Brown on Aug 21, 2013
Wrought iron decor is one of the classiest ways to stylize your home. These pieces of art are elegant and stylish and the presence of intricately carved designs in magnificent colours makes it a must-have for any home to make it look effortlessly chic. Whether you need a tasteful headboard or a simple coat hook to complement walk in tubs, wrought iron decor can suit any need without compromising on the style. When it comes to wrought iron decor, you need not restrict yourself to just the interior spaces. These pieces of art can be used creatively to decorate the external areas of your home as well. The availability of various colours, shapes, materials and designs makes this a very viable option for decorating your home. Given below are some top reasons as to why you must contemplate decorating your home using wrought iron decor pieces.
When it comes to selecting wrought iron decor for your home, you cannot ignore its sturdiness and strength. Wrought iron is extremely durable and therefore, it has an upper hand over the delicate, easily breakable decor items like glass or ceramics. Iron is available abundantly on the planet. If that wasn’t enough, the human body also boasts of traces of this metal. Certain decor items like shelf brackets, hinges and the likes in intricate designs can take the appearance of your home notches higher. Besides, metal wall plaques are a common phenomenon and can easily lend a stylish accent on stodgy home interiors.
2.) Classic piece of metal:
If you thought that wrought iron pieces are a modern phenomenon, you must mull that over. For centuries, people have made use of this artistic metal not just for decorating their homes but also to create their weapons for the war. Although previously the wrought iron was used largely in wars, it later on went ahead to become a trendsetter, with more number of people opting for wrought iron to decorate their homes. In modern times, adding a wrought iron wall decor can lend a vintage touch to your home. Simple use of wrought iron headboards for the bed instead of the usual wooden ones can take the appearance of your home notches higher.
3.) Wrought iron is very adaptable:
It goes without saying that wrought iron is known for its strength and robust nature. However, it is also a metal that can bent into any shape. Therefore, the amount of flexibility that is offered by this metal is immense and this gives manufacturers the creative freedom to experiment with various shapes and designs. These designs and patterns go well not only for a traditional atmosphere, but it works wonders for modern households as well. Therefore, while some people may opt for more traditional metal plaques for their living rooms, some modern households may choose a wrought iron mirror with contemporary designs to match their walk in tubs. The possibilities are simply limitless.
Besides, if you live in a bungalow setting, you can also opt for wrought iron spiral staircases to add a whimsical touch to your homes. There is so much that you can do when it comes to using wrought iron decor for your homes.
4.) An almost wooden finish:
Most of the times, on close inspection, you will realize that wrought iron looks eerily similar to wood in terms of the texture. Therefore, you can use this to your advantage and give your home a creative spin by experimenting with various wood-based colours. You can never go wrong with wrought iron decor.
