Urban loft apartments in city centers, rural farmhouses, and new ultramodern homes in the tech-savvy suburbs of Seattle and San Francisco do not display a shared design philosophy. However, in both residential and commercial environments, each architectural style can benefit aesthetically and functionally from black steel framed windows and doors. Whether your project involves a turn-of-the-century cottage or an industrial and ultramodern loft space, black steel framed windows and doors can complete the style while filling the interior with light and securing the property.

Why Are Black Steel Framed Windows and Doors Popular?

Black steel framed windows and doors are exceedingly popular because of their versatility and strength. Not only can steel be fashioned into various shapes, but it can also last decades with minimal maintenance when treated with a protective, corrosion-resistant coating. Stylistically, black steel framed windows and doors complement myriad architectural styles and are defined by timeless elegance.

Interestingly, black steel framed windows and doors predates steel as a building material. Consequently, the style calls back to a time in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century when wrought iron doors and frames were popular. Iron eliminated the need for much of the heavy wood that supported glass in previous windows, allowing architects to open up buildings and take more significant advantage of natural light. Steel offers considerable strength enhancements, surpassing iron and other metals. Additional improvements in glassmaking and insulation help to make black steel framed windows and doors the apex of home security and comfort.
