6 More Gates For Every Home Style
Give guests a warm welcome with a front gate that matches your personality
Our home’s gate is what guests (and even complete strangers) would see first, so why not put your personal stamp on it? Ideally, you should match your front gate’s style with the overall look of your exterior façade.
Get visual cues from the lines and architectural details, or let your fence and gate’s materials echo those used in your home. Here are some gate design ideas for every house theme:
