Custom Hardware, Rustic Charm: Building Your Dream Cabin with Old West Iron

Building or renovating a cabin is an exciting journey that allows you to create a space brimming with character and personal touches. One of the most impactful ways to infuse your cabin with unique charm is through custom iron hardware. Whether you're constructing a brand-new retreat or breathing new life into an old structure, the right hardware can transform your space into a true reflection of your style. Old West Iron offers a variety of design collections that make it easy to craft a distinctive mountain paradise. Here are our top recommendations for four popular cabin design styles.

Rustic Hideaway

This style is often favored for hunting and fishing cabins, remote family getaways, and refurbished structures. It's free of pomp and frills, carrying a simplistic, cozy air that makes it the perfect place to vacation or call your forever home. For this style, we recommend our Colonial Iron Design Collection. The most common finishes for this style are black, wrought iron, or raw/unfinished, which enhance the rustic, unpolished look. Key pieces include:

Colonial Iron "L" Plate

HCH-336 Authentic Old World Cabinet Handle

  • Twig Cabinet Handle: Brings a touch of nature indoors with its organic form, for those who want to add a subtle but unique statement piece.

Western Ranch Style cabins embody rugged principles but replace unadorned hardware with more ornate and artistic shapes and colors. Often decorated in copper and turquoise tones, these cabins are tranquil, colorful escapes filled with western culture. We recommend our Authentic Arrowhead Design Collection for this style. The most common finish colors for this style are copper/aged copper, raw, and oil-rubbed bronze. Essential pieces include:
