Ornamental Iron Work: Uses and Tips

Ornamental ironwork has been used in various applications since the start of the 20th century. These installations are extremely resilient and durable and even today, some properties have ornamental ironwork pieces that are over a century old. Today, methods like basic metalworking and machining are used by hobbyists in their general metalworking projects. However, only skilled and expert artisans are able to provide ornamental iron work services.

Types of ornamental ironwork features


We at Boston Ironworandle this specialized job in an expert manner and have completed scores of ornamental ironwork design and installation projects such as:

  • Gates and fencing – These installations can be made of wood, aluminum or vinyl; the latter two are very low maintenance options while wood has a classic appeal.. However, you can get the best of both worlds by opting for ornamental iron features. If you find that ironwork fencing doesn’t fit into your budget, you can still choose to get a wrought iron gate installed. It will have a stunning impact and add drama to your property.
    Railings– There are many different types of railings that could be used in a structure, such as sloped rails for staircases, guard rails, balustrades, balcony railings etc. The design concepts and structure of all these features are different and it’s important that you get expert wrought iron designers to provide solutions that match your needs.
  • Stairs– While many homeowners opt for timber staircases, you should consider wrought iron staircases. These have a very classic and luxurious look and can add to the uniqueness of your home. What makes these features even more appealing is that they complement the appearance of traditional as well as modern styled architecture. Outdoor stairs made of this metal require very little maintenance and that is a definite benefit too.
