An impressive facade as this would look plain with a simple black aluminum gate though it matches a section of the facade. To achieve a look that is far removed from plain gates, the owners decided to create a designer entrance gate with a mix of steel filigree patterns and flat brown bars.

14. Gate with circular designs

Retain privacy and decorum by having a gate that has an opaque surface like the one here. The intricate design made of strips of steel makes this a glamorous gate that any owner would be proud to open for guests.

15. Welded aluminum gate with personality

Why settle for plain dull gates when more artistic options are available. Aluminum gates with design overlays fit into any boundary walls.

If you are planning to use any of these designs then you should improve the entrance path to your home too.
