Enhance Your Home With Decorative Columns & Millwork

Whether you use columns as an aesthetic design element or give it a supporting role — your home will be greatly enhanced by fitting columns into your architectural plans. Since ancient times columns have graced private homes as both decorative and structural — supporting a wall or roof.

Although the classical designs of ancient Greek and Roman columns (Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian) are as popular today as ever, don't feel bound to build the expected, since manufacturers of pre-made interior and exterior columns offer homeowners many different shapes, styles and sizes to choose from. Remember that you can choose any of these to start with and have them customized to your specifications.

If you are planning to use columns in your home design, fiberglass columns are worth consideration. Fiberglass columns are nearly indistinguishable in appearance from traditional wood or stone columns, but have the advantage of affordable cost and zero maintenance. Fiberglass columns are impervious to insects and fungus, non-porous and waterproof. Many manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty.

Dramatically transform any room in your home using decorative molding and interior columns. The interior design of this house plan will inspire the use of both.
Enhance Your Home With Decorative Columns & Millwork

Interior columns be can used either as an architectural or decorative element to provide a timeless beauty. Depending on the overall décor, you can use the classic Greek Doric, Ionic, or Corinthian interior columns or you can utilize a more modern interior column design. Interior columns can be used to support arches, doorways, mantels or even cabinets.

The easiest and least costly way to give your home a unique look is to use architectural millwork. Traditionally, this is considered woodwork like doors, window casings and baseboards. They come ready- made from a lumber mill. Today, millwork refers to many other prefabricated architectural products, particularly those made from polyurethane and fiberglass to create unique columns, balustrades, arbors, crown molding or any other design element you might want to create.

Ornamental molding comes in many shapes, styles and sizes. Small details such as gingerbread designs, friezes and embossed ornaments or larger architectural features such as columns, entries and fireplace surrounds are all examples of ornamental molding.

Wainscoting is the name given to wall paneling that covers the lower portion of an interior wall and is often topped with a chair rail. Wainscoting has a number of practical and stylish advantages. Whether you prefer a cottage style beadboard wainscoting or a more traditional/formal wainscoting, both can add a lot of appeal to a room. It can also offer a bit of protection for your walls from dampness, nicks, scuffs and other small imperfections that affect plaster and dry wall.
