Clarksville Brackets for Kitchen Remodel

Of all the rooms in one’s home, which one has the best lighting? In case you didn’t know, the answer is the kitchen. With the best lighting, it makes sense that homeowners pay attention to every detail of their kitchen. We at Architectural Depot encourage that and give it our all to help homeowners achieve the look they want with our products.

Sally from Tulsa, Oklahoma recently remodeled her own kitchen and were looking for some final additions above the stove area. They chose to go online and purchase a couple Ekena Millwork rubberwood Clarksville brackets for their kitchen. After the brackets were delivered, she painted them to match the other items in the kitchen. Installing it with adhesive glue and some wood nails, the brackets were put into their place. The brackets created a clear border for the stove area of the kitchen and they look great!

The Clarksville bracket comes in several different wood species. Not only is this bracket beautiful, it also is load bearing, so homeowners do not have to worry about whether or not the bracket can hold its weight. With proper installation, this bracket can support up to 250 lbs. It comes delivered to the customer fully sanded and ready to be painted or stained.

Behind the Scenes: Shipping Balusters

Last month, we checked out the Ekena Millwork Arcadian balusters being individually assembled. This week we take a closer look at how our shipping team sends them out.

At first glance, one can tell that balusters are pretty large items and customers never buy just one. Typically, customers purchase several balusters along with other components to create a beautiful balustrade railing. With all of these fairly large items, it makes sense that our expert shipping team uses large, custom build crates to ship the products to the customer. The crates can transport up to 30 balusters for customers with bigger projects. The crate is made out of wood bound with steel strapping and, just for good measure, wrapped with several layers of polyolefin film.

Molded after original historical patterns and designs, the Ekena Millwork balusters are true to make a bold statement of elegance. Balusters are made from lightweight, yet very durable, urethane material that allows it to be resistant to the natural effects of weathering, rotting and insect exposure. The shipping team sends the balusters factory primed and ready to paint or apply a faux finish to each customer.

Endurathane Faux Wood Beams

Many homes have high ceilings that often get neglected because the task of getting a tall enough ladder is unappealing. This should not be the case! Homeowners should take pride in the uniqueness of their home and utilize it. Most commonly, customers who have high ceilings use either photos or art to climb the wall to the ceiling, large fireplaces extended up the wall, light fixture and ceiling medallion combos or beams.

One of our recent customers from California shared their home improvement project with us that featured our Endurathane Faux Wood Beams. Though the customer’s ceiling is not extremely high, it is higher than the normal ceiling height seen in average homes. Before the Endurathane beams were installed, the room looked quite plain. Since their addition, there is more depth to the room and it matches the ceiling fan and nightstands.

Our Endurathane faux wood ceiling beams are an amazing investment, providing an exquisite look to your home interiors. They are not susceptible to common issues of organic wood such as rot, termites and warping so maintenance is virtually zero. Additionally, these beams are lightweight, so installing them on one’s ceiling is a breeze! Finally, the beams are cost effective in the end. They are 2-3 times more affordable, all the while having beams that are indistinguishable from real wood.

If you are considering purchasing your own faux wood beam, check out the full collection via the link below!

Tuscany Vinea Wrought Iron Corbels

Christy from HouseSold Realty emailed a finished project picture of her newly installed Tuscany Vinea Wrought Iron Corbels. Perfectly matching, the corbels and the clock complement each other in color and style. Christy used these corbels to load the weight of the wood beam shelf along with the miscellaneous items on it. The load bearing capacity of these corbels are the perfect amount for this particular project.

The Tuscany Vinea Corbel is durable and long lasting. When installed correctly, these corbels can support up to 110 lbs of weight! Not only are they functional, they are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Place the corbels under an extended granite workspace counter, island or shelf area and you will see a dramatic impact on the look and feel of the room.
