Ekena Millwork Ashley Ceiling Medallion with Light Fixture

Tim and Katie from Canton, Michigan sent in gorgeous pictures of their completed ceiling medallion project. They purchased a couple different ceiling medallions, but to keep this post brief, the one we chose to focus on was the Ekena Millwork Ashley Ceiling Medallion.

Delivered in a primed white, the two of them decided to paint it. Katie, an interior designer, went ahead and chose the antiqued bronze and flat gold paint for the medallion. It looks stunning. Perfectly matching the lighting fixture, the newly added medallion truly ties the room together.

Our ceiling medallion collections are modeled after original historical patterns and designs. Made out of lightweight yet durable solid urethane, the medallions are perfect for easy installation. With a couple of screws and adhesive glue, the medallion can be installed to its proper place in a jiffy.  They are fully primed and ready for your paint.

Square Tapered Columns for Backyard Project

Square Tapered Columns for Backyard  Project

Looking through past project pictures, we stumbled upon this particular project. The customer used the Endura-Stone square columns in their backyard. As depicted by the project picture, these columns add timeless elegance to the already lovely backyard scene.

Beautiful and easy to assemble, these columns made this specific home improvement project a breeze! This column is crafted in fiberglass-reinforced polymer (FRP), a durable material for modern times, and one that has the elegance of stone. Our FRP columns are comparatively lightweight, easy to install and impact resistant. The columns are resistant to environmental damage that naturally occurs with exterior wood columns because of the fiberglass-reinforced polymer (FRP) material.

Milton Ceiling Medallion on High Ceiling

There is nothing quite like an ornate chandelier paired with a richly detailed ceiling medallion on a high ceiling.  Recently, one of our customers sent us a picture of her Milton ceiling medallion accompanied by a stunning chandelier. The customer, Elie, bought the 54 ¼” diameter ceiling medallion to hang up high, so she did not hesitate to purchase the large ceiling medallion. If she were to purchase a smaller ceiling medallion, it would not have been as striking due to the lack of size. The contrast between the primed white ceiling medallion and the black chandelier with sparkling ornaments was a nice touch.

The Milton ceiling medallion is modeled after original historical patterns and designs. It is manufactured with solid urethane thus making it lightweight yet durable. The urethane medallion is white and has the option of being painted, however, it is factory primed upon delivery. Finally, ceiling medallions are simple additions to one’s home that can enhance the value of the home monumentally.

Cozy Springtime Ceiling Medallion

All the way from Columbia, South Carolina, Ellen sent us a beautiful picture of her installed Ekena Millwork springtime ceiling medallion! With a plan in mind, Ellen bought the ceiling medallion for her living room. Decorated with colorful couches and vibrant flowers, the white ceiling medallion elegantly accented the white moulding trim. Ellen was going to paint it, but decided that since the medallion came primed white, that was sufficient for her.  Finally, Ellen’s dog gave her the seal of approval by cozying up in the living room where the medallion was installed. Overall, the springtime ceiling medallion was up to par with the customer’s standards.

Available to use on both the interior and exterior of one’s home, the springtime ceiling medallion is a perfect fit for any home improvement project.  Notably, this product is lightweight because it is fashioned out of urethane. Urethane, though it is not heavy, is incredibly durable and resistant to the natural effects of weathering. Unlike polystyrene foam, urethane looks and feels like wood and will not warp under high heats.  Additionally, the medallion comes delivered to the customer fully primed and ready for paint or faux finish.  Arguably, most customers leave their ceiling medallions white, but the others that do paint it always let us know that it was easy since they were primed. Lastly, our warehouse team can ship these ceiling medallions within 24-72 hours of ordering it online.  Seldom are these on back order, which is encouraging since they are in high demand.

Fypon Urethane Bracket for Kitchen Remodel

Earlier this summer, Guillermo from Odessa, Texas purchased a pair of Fypon urethane brackets. The reason for this purchase was to enhance the look of his newly remodeled kitchen. Painted to accent the surrounding walls, the corbels found their permanent homes parallel to the kitchen stove. Overall, Guillermo was satisfied with the ending result of his kitchen remodel with the addition of the two brackets.

First, Fypon urethane brackets are a beautiful architectural product that makes a simple statement of style and elegance. Urethane is high-density rigid foam like product. In other words, urethane products are lightweight and quite durable that are quite affordable. Additionally, customers can use this bracket on the inside of the outside of their home since it holds up against water and insects.  In Guillermo’s project, he used it above his stovetop, which will not be a problem. Urethane will withstand both the moisture of the steam and the heat of food cooking. Finally, when the bracket is delivered to the customer, it will come pre-primed white and ready for painting! This is perfect if the bracket will need to be painted a different color after purchase.
