Ekena Millwork Stainless Steel Bradford Bracket for Kitchen

Keith from Lynchburg, Virginia sent in pictures of how he used the Ekena Millwork stainless steel Bradford bracket in his kitchen. To begin with, the architectural depot customer attached the brackets to his wall and wood shelf. Secondly, he added a metal article to the wood shelf to attach hangers for the kitchen pots and pans. The combination of wood shelf and the steel brackets created a modern, rustic feel. After the rest of his kitchen project was complete, Keith sent in these charming project pictures.

Constructed from stainless steel, the Bradford bracket is perfect for modern homes as most appliances are stainless steel. Not only are these brackets elegant, but also they are incredibly durable! The long lasting steel insures durability for any home improvement project. Additionally, Bradford stainless steel brackets have ¼” material thickness that is perfect for countertop and shelf applications, as seen in Keith’s project picture. Finally, installing these stainless brackets is such a simple task that does not require a long time!

Ekena Millwork Acanthus Ceiling Medallion for Minimalist Kitchen

Jennifer from Orange City, Florida had a vision in mind when she purchased the Ekena Millwork acanthus ceiling medallion earlier this year. After a couple months wait, Jennifer sent in beautifully minimalistic photos of her completed kitchen project.

With this in mind, a minimalist, geometric light fixture accompanied Jennifer’s ceiling medallion. Since the light fixture was black, Jennifer painted part of the ceiling medallion black as well. The black and white contrast between the details of the ceiling medallion makes this specific project simply striking. Lastly, Jennifer commented the following: This medallion really added a custom look to my kitchen! I love it!

First thing to remember about the ceiling medallion is that it is made of solid urethane. Urethane is durable and lightweight, which makes it perfect for interior home improvement projects. The acanthus ceiling medallion is delivered primed white and can be painted completely or like the one in the picture. Additionally, the ceiling medallions are available in one piece or in two pieces. Overall, these ceiling medallions are durable, easy to install and can be used on the interior or exterior depending on the project.

Fypon Wood Grain Urethane Brackets

While we at Architectural Depot receive several charming project pictures, a stunning photo of Fypon wood grain urethane brackets was submitted recently by Sarah from Seminole, Florida that deserves some recognition. Rather than leaving the brackets as the plain primed condition it was delivered, Sarah painted them. By adding the cranberry red paint, the brackets matched the door and the plants in the front of the home. Finally, the customer used her brackets to add dimension to the face of her beautifully colorful home.

Since the material composing the brackets are urethane, the brackets are primarily a lightweight decorative product. Urethane is cheaper than wood, but that does not mean it is not a wonderful quality product. Especially relevant, the fact that the brackets that Sarah used had a wood grain texture made it look like wood. Unlike wood, the urethane material does hold up against water and insects; the brackets can be used outside. Finally, the brackets having simple installation instructions, so adding that simple statement of style to a home isn’t going to be difficult!

Hy-Lite Decorative Windows Shine Light in Home

From Atlanta, Georgia, Suzanne, one of our creative customers, sent a few lovely project pictures.  In her email, she stated that the “tiny bathroom” was “depressing with NO light.” In the pictures, she used a Hy-Lite Oval Window to shed some light in the restroom. After everything was completed, Suzanne wrote: “it is not necessary to have a big space to make a big difference.”

Composed of acrylic material, Hy-Lite decorative glass windows are lightweight and incredibly easy to install. The U-value of this oval window is 0.52. Generally speaking, it is in the lower end of the U-value scale that ranges from 0.25 to 1.25. The lower the U-value, the better the window insulates!
