How to Make Metal Doors More Stylish
After reading Part II, you should now be able to decide whether a metal door is the best choice for your application or not. If you decide that protection weighs heavier on your decision than style, but would still like to improve the appearance of a metal door as much as possible, the following tips can help you.
To make metal doors more stylish, you’ll need to make them blend in better with the overall design of the home. You can accomplish this by doing the following:
Add stylish accessories – Door handles and knockers come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Just because the door is made of metal doesn’t mean that you’re left with limited accessory options. Find accessories that are unique so that the attention of your visitors is diverted from the material of the door.
Try a new color – Metal doors can always be painted another color. You can try using a color that will make the door stand out or blend in with the color of the home. Try looking at magazines to find color combinations that will work for your metal doors.
Change the glass panels – If your metal doors have glass panels, you might want to consider changing them. Changing the panels can work wonders on a door design.
Add decorations – Door ornaments are usually used during Christmas, but there are ornaments that are perfect for any season. Spend some time to search for ornaments that can make your door more interesting.
Paint faux windows – Faux windows are a great way to spice up your metal doors. However, you may need to hire a professional to paint them on.
Paint wood designs – Some painters are capable of making your metal doors seem like wooden ones. With the right type of paint and the right techniques, your visitors may not even realize that the door is actually made of metal.
A little bit of creativity can make your metal door more stylish. With the right design, you’ll be able to balance protection and style perfectly. If you need a little help with creativity, you can hire a professional designer to create designs that would look good for your home.
