The Appeal of Steel

source: Bobby McAlpine

When browsing through my archive of room photos for inspiration for our new home, I realized many of my favorite rooms have steel framed windows and doors. And I must not be alone in liking them, because they keep popping up everywhere. For good reason.

Steel framed windows and doors add an instant focal point to your room and exude immense character. They can be sophisticated modern with a touch of industrial chic. They can be farmhouse rustic with a French or Italian vibe. Or they can bring a hint of greenhouse charm, slightly reminiscent of a conservatory.

Their only downside is the cost. Few people have the money to shell out on brand new windows when redecorating their home. But that doesn’t mean you can’t steal the look. Scroll to the bottom for a super simple and chic solution.

Want the look of steal windows and doors sans the price tag? Paint the trim of your windows a deep, rich grey or black like below. While the look won’t be identical due to most windows having thicker trim than those of the steel variety, it will be pretty close. If you really want to nail the look, choose a paint with a chalky, matte finish.
