What Is an Iron Impressions Grille?
Although “iron” is in the name, Iron Impressions is actually an alternative to traditional iron. Iron Impressions is a lightweight, composite material that mimics the look of cast iron. It’s a routed product that starts with one big sheet and can be customized to fit almost any design. These grilles can be used for custom door inserts, added to ceilings, interior wall dividers and more to provide a decorative element to any home. Beyond offering a wonderful aesthetic addition to any home or business, Iron Impressions also provide a variety of other awesome advantages. If you’ve been thinking about adding more to the design of your door or ceiling, you might find the benefits of Iron Impressions to fit exactly what you’re looking for.
They Are Beautiful and Completely Customizable
The before and after photos speak for themselves, but Iron Impressions grilles offer a unique and beautiful design element for your home. One of the most exciting advantages of the material is that it’s completely customizable and can be designed to fit many areas throughout your house. You can stick with a theme if you want, such as a Tuscan or modern style, or go for something completely different. Some of the most popular areas of installation include:
Your entryway is one of the first elements many guests notice about your home. An Iron Impressions grille can be added to the glass over your current doors to provide a gorgeous, completely unique look. They are a great way to give a rich, high-end iron look to your home without a big commitment. These grilles can be paired with clear impact glass or textured privacy glass, depending on your preference or what type of door you have installed. They can also be added over mirrored glass to help give some dimension to the appearance of your door.
Iron Impressions grilles can be applied to a ceiling in so many ways that may not be obvious at first. Especially in a tray ceiling, an Iron Impressions design can completely transform an entire room. There is also the option to pair the design installed in your ceiling with your staircase railing or other areas of your home. For example, say you have a medallion-style staircase railing in your foyer. You could also have that same medallion mimicked in the design of the grille for your ceiling to create a cohesive, luxurious look and feel. With all of the intricate design possibilities, these grilles can add so much more visual interest to an otherwise typical ceiling and room.
Niches and Walls
Another potential area of installation that may come as a surprise is niches and walls. If you have a room with a niche, you may be stumped on what you can do to decorate it to its full potential. Of course, most homeowners tend to use a niche as a bookshelf or other sort of storage area, but you could also add an Iron Impressions grille to it. The same goes for walls and interior wall dividers. A custom Iron Impressions grille can be designed and installed as an interior wall divider, or even just added to a regular wall for decoration.
Behind a Bed
Going beyond doors, walls and ceilings, Iron Impressions can also be added behind a bed to provide a subtle, high-end flare to any room. The bed is typically the focal point of a bedroom, and when you add an Iron Impressions grille behind one, it can almost act as a work of art on display.
2.They Are Weather Resistant
Our Florida climate brings seasonal inclement weather, including rain and wind that unfortunately causes wear to our homes. With Iron Impressions, you don’t have to worry about the harsh wear and tear that you might experience with traditional iron designs. The material is highly weather resistant and won’t rust after repeatedly getting rained on. It’s also impermeable to bugs that may try and crawl their way in through your doors. Weather resistance also makes this material relatively low maintenance, so you can enjoy the beautiful look of an Iron Impressions custom door insert without worrying about it breaking down after a few rain showers.
3. They Add Value to Your Property
When you have an elegant, beautiful entryway to your home, it typically helps add to the resale value of your property. That’s exactly what a custom Iron Impressions door insert can provide for you. Should you ever be in the market to sell, an Iron Impressions grille can add great curb appeal to your property. Beyond the outside, they can also add increased value from being installed to areas on the inside of your house as well. The overall elegant and unique design just adds more of a decorative element to your home that may help you if you decide to sell it down the line.
4. They Can Be Applied to Commercial Buildings
Of course, an Iron Impressions grille can take any home to the next level, but it can also help give any commercial building some decorative flare. From restaurants, to clubhouses and waiting rooms, these grilles can be applied in the same way as any other residential property. Because of the overall versatility and ease of installation with this material, it makes it a perfect addition to many commercial businesses wanting to customize their look or just revamp their space.
5. Installation is Quick & Seamless
One of the most beneficial advantages of Iron Impressions grilles is the ease of installation and seamless customization. After discussing the overall design concept and approving the art proof, production time for an Iron Impressions grille can take anywhere from five to six weeks. Once built, most projects can be installed that day depending on the number of pieces and intricacies of each unique design. Since the material is so much more lightweight than traditional iron, installation becomes much easier. Not to mention, that lightweight material won’t add excessive weight to your doors or add stress to your walls and any other areas of installation.
