Three ironwork materials that can modernise your home

Looking for a bespoke way to modernise your home and add a contemporary feel? 

Over the past several years, we have worked with numerous individuals on a mission to modernise their properties with contemporary, made-to-measure driveway gates, pedestrian gates, railings, balconies, balustrades and handrails.

As a result, our design and manufacture team have created all kinds of bespoke solutions crafted from our Leicestershire workshop – we can work with you to create a unique feel to your home.

Thanks to our extremely flexible manufacturing process, we are able to meet all kinds of requirements. We utilise a wide range of materials and techniques, including:

1. Wrought iron

Wrought iron is a wonderful material in that it adapts easily to different styles. It’s not only suitable for traditional Victorian-style railings, but can also be used to create all kinds of minimalistic modern or complex contemporary designs. Wrought iron is extremely hard wearing and our iron railings are galvanised to make it highly resistant to corrosion. 

Unlike iron railings from high street DIY stores, our railings are made from heavier, higher quality materials, and are manufactured to meet specific size and design. 

2. Aluminium 

Aluminium is ideal for a very clean, almost industrial contemporary look, whereas pairing a wood effect coating with a fresh, modern colour can put a new spin on a farmhouse classic. This is a really great way to and personality and style to your home as well as having the advantage of privacy. Aluminium is a great option due to the fact it can be constructed similarly to classic wooden gates; precision cut and joined from component parts to create a solid gate with minimal visibility. 

3. Steel 

We also often use steel to create bold definition and effects. We can also utilise laser cutting techniques on sheet steel to fashion fine, intricate lines which look stunning and add a contemporary, bespoke feel to your property. This is a great way to create a modern and eye-catching design. 

We can even add personal touches with decorative finishes to enhance your gates and railings, including a wide selection of post tops and motifs. As with our railheads, these can be left in the colour of your choice or finished with highlights in silver, gold or copper. We have access to a vast array of suppliers’ inventories to ensure you have exactly what you want.
