The design of the entrance gate makes an important contribution to the overall look of your home as it’s the first thing that everyone sees, when they are either walking by on the street or visiting you. It should be designed so that it goes beyond the functionality of providing security to showcase the external view of the home. A variety of materials and ideas are available for making an entrance gate stand out, and it’s vital that the ideal combination or design is used to elevate the look of a home.

An entry gate needn’t necessarily be ornate to stand out. In some cases, a simple design that blends with the design style and the exterior façade can work just as well. That’s just the case with this wooden gate. The horizontal slats provide the needed privacy by blocking views of the entryway and the carport. However, the distinctly modern style of the gate perfectly blends with the contemporary home design and the materials used for it.
Here, the professionals have opted for a gate that comprises two sections. The solid structure in the middle blocks the views, whereas the horizontal slats at the sides offer a peek into the driveway. Notice how the main gate pillar design incorporates a nameplate as well as a decorative feature to lend a unique look to the façade.
