Elegant doorways need style and light: Metalier Liquid Coatings

At Metalier we specialize in making entrances and doorways into design statements.  Metalier’s liquid metal is a good place to begin if you want to make a statement with your door.

Doorways can be simple or exotic

Like the mosque doorway pictured doorways can be as exotic as your imagination will allow.  The photograph in this blog comes courtesy of David Latt’s blog “www.menwholiketotravel.com”.  The mosque is in Morocco and features detailed and beautiful tiles and metalwork on very tall doorways.  David tells us that the mosque overlooks the breakwater and harbour.  It sounds almost too good to be true.

Doorways need light

When you are designing your doorways you need to give consideration to lighting.  This applies to every material you use but is particularly so when you are using metal, whether it is Metalier liquid metal or sheet metal.

Metal gleams, shines and reveals its light when it is in the light.  That message was brought home loud and clear to us when we had a kitchen with a stainless steel bench.  There were no curtains or blinds as the location meant there was no need for privacy.  The morning sun would stream in and hit the bench.  It was blinding!  We had to put a towel over the bench – which somewhat defeated the purpose.

The stainless steel example was extreme but, nevertheless, it reinforces the point.  Metal reflects light and needs good lighting so that it appears burnished, rich and full.  Metalier liquid metals are real metals and require the same lighting as their sheet metal cousins.  This can be natural light from outside or it can be artificial.  In corridors and apartment doorways, it is particularly important to make sure that the lighting will enhance your beautiful doorways.
