After finding the perfect wrought iron front door for your home, your job is not yet done. There are two other pieces of wrought iron door hardware you need to match with your new front door. The first ones are iron door handles. The second ones are iron door locks.
When selecting the right iron door handle and iron door lock for your new front door, you want to choose a style and design that complements your iron front door. Fortunately, there are plenty of different iron door handle and iron door lock designs and styles to choose from to find the perfect ones.
What Wrought Iron Door Hardware Will Fit Your Front Door?
To help start narrowing down your selections, the first thing you need to know is what wrought iron door hardware will fit your new front door. Your new iron front door will have pre-made holes where the door handle and door lock get installed.
If you already received your new door, measure the size of the circular openings to help match the right size iron door hardware. Otherwise, if you are getting ready to order your new iron front door, take the time to ask questions about what door handles and door locks will fit your new door.
What Styles Do You Like?
Your next consideration is, of course, what iron door handle and iron door lock styles you like. The door is going to be installed at your home, so you want to make sure it reflects your tastes and preferences. You can choose from ornamental, traditional, luxury, artistic, modern, contemporary, modern-contemporary, and other such styles.
What Matches Your Wrought Iron Front Door?
It is equally important to match door handle and door lock styles to your wrought iron front door when deciding which ones you like. For example, if you want a modern wrought iron door, then you would want to choose an iron door handle and iron door lock that also reflected the modern style.
On the other hand, if you selected an ornamental wrought iron door style, then you would want to choose a more classic and ornamental style of door handles and door locks. Certain styles and designs of door handles and door locks can work with several different styles and designs of iron doors.
If you are shopping online or virtually, you can ask your iron door manufacture to help. Most are happy to either send you pictures or schedule a Zoom call so you can check out the different styles and designs to pick the right ones for your new iron front door.
Other Considerations to Remember
There are two final considerations you need to remember to include in the selection process:
- Door Finish – The finishing or color of the wrought iron door should match or complement the finish on the iron door handle and iron door lock.
- Door Design – The design of the door should flow smoothly and easily make it appear as though the door handle and door lock were part of the original door design.
As can be seen, selecting the right iron door handle and iron door lock for your new front door is as important as picking the best wrought iron front door for your home.
