Front gates are often an afterthought, and some homeowners just settle for generic metal bars. But gates should be treated as the grand entrances that they are—giving guests a taste of the style of the home and the personality of the owner.

We “toured” Instagram to get a glimpse of different styles of gates from all over the world. Get some design inspo from these unexpected and beautiful styles:

Abstract

Staggered metalwork patterns on a clean, linear gate make this style work for grand but modern-style homes. 

Circle and slats

This is a simple but bold gate. The circle is a lucky touch too—it resembles a Chinese moongate. 

Picket and latticework

If your house is contemporary-country in style, this gate in the East Coast of the US—which combines all the country details like a picket fence and latticework—is perfect for you. 

Midcentury squares

 

This midcentury-era gate in Dallas, Texas combines a grid with metal squares to add privacy. It’s an easy but graphically striking solution. 

Flowing patterns

This glamorous gate in Sydney with a flowing, swirling pattern also has Art Deco touches, as seen in the door handle. 

Lasercut

This technique has become a growing trend, as it could let you customize intricate patterns and designs. You can have something like this done locally at Cutting Edge, tel. (02) 837-2773 and 837-0687.

Birds and palms

Another lasercut gate, but with a more traditional, whimsical design. The birds are a nice touch. 

Tropical dream

Stable Door

 

If you’re dreaming of your own ranch, this gate (and fence) type can work for your vacation home in Baguio or Tagaytay.
