While winter doesn’t want to release its chilly hold on Minnesota, the Twin Cities spring housing season is heating up. Charming older homes in Minneapolis and St. Paul have a lot of curb appeal. Often, a significant part of that charm is an ornate iron door.
Wrought Iron Doors in Minneapolis and St. Paul
Decorative wrought iron doors became popular in the early twentieth century. The homes of wealthy families along Summit Avenue in St. Paul and Mt. Curve Avenue in Minneapolis featured ornate doors that provided security and beauty to the street-facing sides of their homes. Owners of more modest homes followed suit.
Today, many historic homes in neighborhoods across the Twin Cities have decorative wrought iron doors. You can find them adorning homes in the suburbs, too. Heavy iron doors provide security in densely populated neighborhoods. But they also add a lot of beauty and character.
Upgrading a Wrought Iron Door
If you do not properly maintain your iron door, it can make your home look worn out or even a little scary. If you’re selling your home this spring and your iron door has seen better days, it’s a great time to replace it with a new door that will catch buyers’ eyes.
We craft our custom iron doors from USA-made steel for superior strength and durability. We’ll work with you to design a door that complements the design of your home and appears original to your property. Every design element of your door is hand-wrought by our experienced artisans. We can even incorporate glass into your design to add protection from the elements.
If you are putting your home on the market this spring and need to replace your wrought iron front door, now is a great time to get started on your project. Find inspiration in our gallery to get your creative juices flowing. Then, contact the Artistic Ornamental Iron team to get started.
