Flat Decorative Columns
Columns are your go-to if you are looking to add an air of ancient Greek or Roman architecture to your space. Where in older periods they were used for structural support (think the grand Colosseum), today they are less for support and more for decorative purposes.
Columns come in three designs: flat, round and half columns, based on their shape.
Flat columns assume a plane shape and will not protrude significantly out of the wall like round columns.
They are a delightful addition to a room because:
❖ They give the illusion of sturdiness and support.
❖ They are useful in hiding any blemishes on the wall.
❖ They add an air of sophistication to the space.
There is no limit on how eccentric to go with your choice of flat column. If you’re keen on old styles, then you will probably be on the lookout for Corinthian, Doric or perhaps Ionic columns. If you are less interested in the style names and more on the detailing, your focus will probably be more on how simple or detailed the column surface is.
The good news is that whatever your interests, we have you covered in our wide array of flat column options. What’s more, they are made from the finest, dense, architectural polyurethane that is durable and has numerous amazing features:
❖ The Greeks and Romans fashioned their columns out of marble or stone. Polyurethane provides the same illusion of grandeur but at a much more affordable cost.
❖ It is easy to work with using simple tools and equipment. This makes it great for DIY projects with minimal assistance.
❖ It is resistant to harsh weather conditions such as high heat and humidity. This makes it ideal even for areas that are more prone to high moisture conditions.
❖ It is resistant to rotting, cracking or warping.
❖ Because it does not expand and contract easily, the paint will not crack nor permit moisture to accumulate beneath it.
❖ It does not allow the growth of mildew or fungus and is less prone to insect attack
❖ It is environmentally friendly and does not contain toxic fluorocarbons
❖ It is long-lasting. One installation of a flat column will last until you are ready for a make-over.
The flat columns come pre-primed and ready for your creative input as far as the shades go.
Tip: Most people go with white paint if they want to add some to the column. White is preferable as it is the color of the primer and will automatically blend well with it. White is also speaks to elegance and has been used on columns for eons.
