Fashion and Houses are an Interesting Match
Country houses and cute little homes tucked away in between modern homes in the city often have wrought iron railings.
This looks great on them, but unfortunately, gives a bit of a dated look to railings on modern houses.
There are easy to update, however, if you have them on your house at this point. Like the l shaped desk, the difference between a dated, ugly looking desk and an elegant, graceful desk can be a matter of a few color changes and a few years change in design.
This is because offices and homes change in fashion much like clothing. Clothes and jewelry become outdated and quickly become something that people associate with aged looking things, and wrought iron has a tendency to be right up there with leggings in a ‘this is in fashion, now it’s a total fashion taboo’ back and forth. Unlike leggings, however, you can’t simply take off the leggings, put them in a drawer and forget about them until they are in fashion again. You have to pay attention to how you’re going to keep your metal in fashion even after it makes your house look dated.
This is because there are a lot of things about metal that make them work great once in awhile and cause problems at other times.
For railings, wrought iron has very little support space. It often hovers over a grand total of a few square millimeters of space, and that is all, while wood has a few square inches of space to support it. This can be great, but it adds to the look of wrought iron being problematic once in awhile. Keeping your wrought iron from rusting is another thing you need to keep in mind, as wrought iron can rust, and that can get very ugly and problematic.
