Ekena Millwork Deco Ceiling Medallion

This beautiful ceiling medallion resides in the lovely state of Kansas in the home of a valued Architectural Depot customer named Bill. Its story is like most other Architectural Depot products: it was needed by a customer, chosen, purchased, delivered and installed.  But, with this particular ceiling medallion there was more to its story.

Bill had an idea in mind for the lighting in his living room. He wanted it to be simple and neat, yet elegant. There are plenty of ceiling medallions that fit that description on Architectural Depot, so he looked at them. The choice might have been difficult since there are so many options, but Bill bought the Ekena Millwork Deco ceiling medallion. It arrived to his home within a week or so and he went to work on it. Painting it an elegant shimmer silver color, he installed it and the perfect light fixture to go with it. The original simple ceiling medallion became a chic ceiling medallion with subtle flare.

The Ekena Millwork Deco ceiling medallion is perfect as is in its primed white state or dressed up in a decorative finish. They are composed of solid urethane for maximum durability and detail. It is lightweight which makes it perfect for quick and easy installation. Finally, these medallions can be used in both the interior and exterior of one’s home!

Custom Double Panel Vinyl Shutters

The state of Ohio has such beautiful architecture that can be seen from the Cincinnati Museum Center to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. The historic buildings inspire others when remodeling their own homes. This is the case for Steve from Mentor, Ohio.

Steve recently was in the market to increase the curb appeal of his home with the addition of new shutters. On his home, he had already installed some shutters, but due to the natural effects of weathering, they were faded.  He enjoyed the look of the shutters when they were in their prime, but now, they were an eyesore. Steve wanted new shutters.

After perusing ArchitecturalDepot.com, he found the perfect shutters for his home. He went with custom sized double raised panel shutters in a nice burgundy red color. The shutters are made of vinyl material so the benefits are incredible! They are fade proof, weather resistant and incredibly easy to install! We think they look great on Steve’s home!

Nantucket Window Planter Box

Did you know that there is a variety of different products offered on Architectural Depot? There are plenty of items for the interior of the home that can range from beams to wainscot paneling. From awnings to planter boxes, we have a diverse collection of products for the outside of the home!

You see pictures on social media sites like Pinterest and Instagram with such cute homes and the loveliest of gardens. The issue is not everyone has a place to dedicate to a whole garden. The solution to a dull, drab garden-less home? Planter boxes that you can hang right below a window. These are perfect for any size home!

Rick from Saint Petersburg, Florida just sent us his finished project that featured the Nantucket window box on his home.  He chose to purchase a black window box which created a beautiful contrast between the color of the home and the box itself. By purchasing the box with installation brackets, Rick let us know that it was “very convenient” and he was glad with his purchase at Architectural Depot.

The new Nantucket window box features a bowed front, raised panel design, pronounced crown molding detail and built-in overflow drains. It includes a sub-irrigation water system that helps the root growth. There are several sizes available for purchase along with different color options. The best part about these window boxes is that it comes with a 15 year limited warranty.
