Handmade gates can add an extra dimension to the architecture of your property. Gates that have been carved by hand and designed specifically for you and your land can add an extra bit of warmth to your home. Handmade gates that are made with care by experts are quality products that make you feel instantly at home when you pull up into your drive. The gates can be used for both security, by making your home inaccessible to anyone who isn’t welcome, and for beauty, through the dark colours that come with varnished wood.
Gates can be used for a wide range of functions but security is the most obvious and common. Gates can help keep unwanted people or animals out. If you live in an area that is surrounded by livestock then they can be a sure way of preventing a flock of sheep or a group of horses from appearing on your drive and eating the flowers on your land. Conversely they can also be used to ensure that your dogs or other pets do not wander off into the country side. Similarly gates can be used for added safety for your children. If your children are old enough to play unattended but are still inquisitive enough that they might run out the end of the drive then a gate could be useful to ensure that their adventurousness does not get them into trouble. Gates are also a good deterrent to criminals as they would know that it could impede their escape thus making them less likely to attempt to burgle your property. Some other home security ideas are shown in the video below:
Handmade gates are a lot nicer and aesthetically than factory made steel gates. A wooden gate made out of nice timber is more rustic and suitable for home compared to a metal gate which is more in line with a factory or place of work. It is much nicer to come home to a handmade gate that has been designed specifically for you rather than a steel gate that is used by home-owners and factories alike. The gate can also be used to set the tone for your garden. If you are looking to have a private garden then a tall gate is advisable. A tall dark coloured gate combined with a well-built brick wall can create a high-end feel to your property whilst providing both security and privacy. Conversely a lighter, pedestrian gate can provide a bit more warmth to the property and make your home seem more approachable to guests. It might be easier to breach but a beware of the dogs sign or a lone CCTV camera can offer sufficient deterrent to any would be burglar.
