Stylish Columns & Millwork

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.

Make A Statement With Stylish Columns & Millwork
The use of columns and millwork in your design can give your home a unique look and elegant appeal. Perhaps nothing is more inviting about a home than a cool and relaxing front porch adorned with details like beautiful columns and porch railings and balustrades. Because of its inviting charm, it is no surprise that front porches are one of the most demanded items by customers searching for home plans.

When using columns, always make sure that you choose a size that is proportionate to your overall design. Columns can appear overwhelming if they are too large or weak and spindly if they are too small. If your plan calls for a certain column size, do not change it without consulting you architect/designer or builder otherwise you may be disappointed with the end appearance.
