Gates must blend flawlessly with the architecture and landscape, and enhance the beauty of the building. It could be an ornate gate, a gate with simple straight lines, or a traditional one. An ordinary gate would not go well with a traditional or historic style building. A gate must enhance the beauty of outdoor decor and not overpower it. The shape and size of gates vary depending on the architectural style of the building. A gate with simple, straight lines will be a total misfit in a traditional setting. A garden gate would be quite different from an entrance gate or a driveway gate. The design could vary depending on whether it's a walkway gate, an entrance gate, or a courtyard gate. The design would also vary depending on its function. A ranch-style gate would be solid, have maximum strength, with a centre medallion and rock posts on either side. A contemporary style gate would have a stylish look and unique design. Automatic driveway gates would keep children and pets in a safe enclosed area and have remote control openers.
Where to start? The first thing to consider when coming up with a new entrance design is the location. If it is a new property you may have many options, although Convenience is one of the most important things to consider. You don't want to have to make a "U-Turn" to get into your property, you also have to consider who/what will be coming through that entrance...guests, contractors, builders, cement trucks, semi trucks, all will need the Room to enter your property safely. For existing properties the choices can be limited, but that does not mean you have to have an ugly entrance.
You have the perfect location, now what? Unless you are a contractor or designer, it is best to let a professional do the design work for you.
