Columns are probably what you’re thinking of if you want an air of ancient Egyptian or Roman architecture in your space. In older periods, they were the pillars supporting arches and high beams in buildings such as temples and were made of concrete or marble.
Today, they are made out of varying materials in addition to these, such as polyurethane, and are less for support and more for decorative purposes.
Columns come in three designs: flat, round and half columns, based on their shape.
A whole/ round column is as cylindrical as the name suggests and will completely project out of the wall. They can also be used as stand-alone columns not leaning against any wall.
They are a delightful addition to a room because:
❖ They give the illusion of sturdiness and support even where they offer none.
❖ Two half columns can be put together around a pole or exterior feature such as pipes, to make a whole column.
❖ They are a great way to introduce one to a new space such as where they flank the entryway to a large drawing or dining room.
❖ They add an air of sophistication to the space.
Whole decorative columns come in diverse options to suit your unique needs and interests. They are mostly in Corinthian, Doric or Ionic styles that are individually beautiful and tasteful. These are differentiated by height, thickness, and base and capital features, and are well suited for different spaces depending on the room and the end goal for the decor. The column face will either be plain or fluted, each of which is equally amazing depending on your taste.
Whatever your fancy, we have you covered in our extensive array of whole column options. What’s more, they are made from the finest, dense, architectural polyurethane that is durable and has numerous, amazing attributes:
❖ It is easy to work with using simple woodwork tools. This makes it great for DIY projects.
❖ It is resistant to high weather conditions such as heat and humidity. This makes it ideal even for areas that are more prone to high moisture conditions such as the house exterior.
❖ It does not rot, crack or warp easily.
❖ Because it does not expand and contract easily, it will not cause paint to crack nor permit moisture beneath the paint layer.
❖ It does not allow the growth of mildew or fungus and is less prone to insect attack
❖ It is environmentally friendly as it does not contain toxic fluorocarbons
❖ It is durable.
The whole columns come pre-primed and ready to paint in your desired hue.
Tip: Most people go with white paint if they want to paint the columns over before installation. 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.
