5 Styles Of Gates You'd Want To Have

Gates don't just add privacy—they make a statement all on their own!

Metal and wrought iron gates are a common sight. Some go as high as the house’s second storey, while others give a peek of the front door. But your gates and fences don’t have to be the same as your neighbor’s (unless it’s your village’s policy). Here are some ideas:

1. Contemporary Filipino

This bahay kubo-inspired home in the South has a metal gate as its main entrance, but it is made special by Filipino elements like capiz-like details and ara-al stones. Light shades of brown work well with the abundance of greenery around the house.

2. Industrial

Gather scrap materials and use them to form a one-of-a-kind gate. This house in a village in Quezon City is hard to miss, thanks to its gate that stands out from the rest. The homeowners fondly call the house number their “baked mac.” 

3. A bright and airy front porch

A stylish facade can also extend to the porch. Have a bench where you can spend mornings reading the paper while having a cup of coffee or afternoons just having a lazy, quiet time. Add some throw pillows to make this spot cozy. 

 4. Modern Minimalist

If you’re into modern minimalist interiors, let it show on your gate and front door. It’s simple yet it packs a lot of style. In this house in Bacolod, the gate is a prelude to its modern minimalist interiors—straightfoward, no- fuss, clean-lined, and beautiful in its seemingly barebones state. The shadows cast make for an arresting visual feature. 

5. Earthy

This model home in Tago by Manosa Properties in Tagaytay sports the developer’s trademark Filipino design. Adobe walls front the house and create a sophisticated and well-thought-of facade. Greens surrounding the house add to the organic feel.
