How to Give Your Home a Guggenheim-Worthy Makeover with Iron Doors

Are you an art lover who adores the Guggenheim and has a thing for all things modern?

From the Museum of Modern Art to Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim Museum, simple French iron doors to elegant glass creations have long been part of creating an environment conducive to creativity, inspiration, and enlightenment.

However, let’s be honest here: It would cost a fortune to design and build your home with a Guggenheim-worthy makeover. Also, it would prohibitively be more expensive to keep up day after day.

So how can you bring a little bit of the avant-garde into your home in style?

While most people start redesigning their home with the obvious: a new paint, installation of damask wallpaper, and putting up cotton or silk upholstery, replacing your doors is the quickest way to give your space a new look.

The best way to recreate the Guggenheim's look at home is with iron doors. Here’s how you can use them as accents throughout your house or as the focal point of a room.

Your Entryway

Your entryway is one of the first things people see when they walk into your home.

This makes it a prime location for adding a bold statement piece like an iron door with sidelights and transoms.

If you have an open concept living room and dining area, consider placing a large iron door between them. This will create a dramatic entryway that will make guests feel welcome as soon as they walk through the doorway.

You could also use a single large black French iron door on its own for an elegant look that's perfect for formal events or hosting dinner parties.

Turn An Ordinary Room Into A Statement

If your room feels uninspired or boring, get an arched French iron door installed. The dramatic lines of the interior iron doors can add interest and style to any space.

If you want to divide two rooms but still keep them open and connected, use iron doors as room dividers instead of walls or curtains! It will give you privacy without closing off access to fresh air, all while creating an illusion of having multiple rooms

Combine It With Other Materials For Contrast And Depth

The best way to ensure that your iron doors will stand out is by combining them with other materials.

For example, if you have an antique wooden table in your living room, placing an iron door next to it will create contrast between the two different materials.

Paint iron doors white and add a sophisticated rectangular door handle for a modern look that would fit perfectly in an open concept home with high ceilings and a monochromatic color palette.

Iron doors also make excellent closets and kitchen pantry doors because they're durable while still looking stylish— no matter what season it is!
