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.

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. Each corbel is crafted using 0.6 mm metal and given a nice powder coated black finish that makes it such a nice product.

He painted the ceiling medallion an antique bronze color to match the light fixture. There was a seamless transition between the end of the ceiling medallion and the beginning of the light fixture. The fine details of the ceiling medallion mimicked the wrought iron braces of the light. Martin did a wonderful job on his project by making every detail count.

There are several different styles of shutters out there in the market. There are different sizes, material and shapes that make shutters a unique touch to any project.
Recently, Donna from highland Heights, Ohio sent in a project picture featuring a pair of paintable Mid America four board shutters with an arch top. Typically used on the outside of the home, our customer chose to go off the beaten path and install the shutters inside. She painted them with creamy grays with a touch of aquamarine. The customer installed the shutters with a DIY mirror in the middle. We think it looks great!
First, the Mid America shutters are made out of vinyl materials. Vinyl is not only durable, but it also is fade resistant. This is perfect because shutters are installed on the exterior of one’s home! Potential sun damage is a real factor to consider when purchasing exterior shutters. Essentially, these shutters will not crack or fade from being the natural effects of weathering. Finally, the addition of these shutters ton one’s home is the most cost effective way to add value to one’s home.
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.
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.
