The main gate plays a significant role in adding character and personality to the house facade design. It urges strangers passing by and visitors to form an opinion about your home and lifestyle, but it also satisfies the functional requirement of providing privacy. Although gates are made of a wide variety of materials like iron, wood, steel and aluminium, wrought iron gates are the most popular due to their strength and durability. They also have unmatched classic elegance that boosts the stylishness of the façade. 

In this ideabook, we showcase a few designs that are perfect for Indian houses.

Some more gate designs

Here is another simple yet elegant iron gate design that can perfectly complement any classic, rustic or contemporary house. Featuring a linear pattern and a see-through construction, the door aligns well with the stunning façade. Also, its grey-black colour creates a striking contrast with the white walls.

If you want something simple yet sturdy for your main gate design, then this option will definitely serve your purpose. Displaying black colour and horizontal lines on the sides, a gate design such as this can seamlessly blend with the clean lines on the exterior of small Indian homes. Also, the centre of the gate is completely covered with a black sheet and does not offer views of the inside, helping to maintain the required amount of privacy.
