There are different reasons to consider the inclusion of iron at different points within your home. You will notice the use of iron throughout homes that are considered "higher end" as well as those that are not owned by wealthy people. This is due to the versatility of iron as a medium, and the expense only being seen as ornamentation is added. You can literally get iron security bars added to doors and windows of your home for a very reasonable and low price, which will also add to the security of your home. The cost of these additions will be offset by the savings that you see over time by preventing breakins. While they may not be as beautiful as a wide open window, they can be designed to not look too imposing.
Higher end homes will also employ the same mentality of security and personal protection, while also adding to the ornamentation of these elements in order to keep them beautiful. Yes these types of additions are going to add to the cost, but the beauty of the entire thing is that they do not detract from the strength and security that is added. The elegance of ornamental pieces that are added do not reduce the strength of the entire piece, ultimately giving you the ability to budget the same security aspect to fit the amount that you would like to spend. The more you are willing to spend on a gate or door, the more ornamentation can be added to it. That same piece can also add many custom aspects that are not seen in any other homes in your area, due to the fact that each piece is hand crafted to the specifications you set. When it comes to security iron and ornamental iron, the two styles and functions can intersect without an issue.
Style and functionality are able to mix quite well with ornamental iron in a way that few other security aspects can. Generally, it is nearly impossible to improve an alarm or camera system to make it elegant. It is seen as a function first addition, and while it might detract from the aesthetic beauty of the place it is seen as a necessary evil. Ornamental iron on the other hand has the ability to put beauty first and still be a fully functioning security aspect. Almost any other type of beautification attempt is going to weaken the security aspects, like the addition of glass where there was once wood or metal in a door. Yes, it will open it up and make it look nice but it will also make it far easier for a thief to enter the house. Iron security doors will allow for the addition of artistic elements that are also beautiful, solving an issue with being safe at the expense of feeling like you are in jail yourself.
