Acanthus Twist Ceiling Medallion with Chandelier

They are making a comeback. In the past, they were thought of as a stuffy architectural item of the elite, but that is not the case any longer! These simple additions can make a room come together and add a sophisticated presence.

What are these mysterious items? They are ceiling medallions!

There is a lot to consider when purchasing a ceiling medallion like the size, style and material.

Making the decision on which ceiling medallion will be the only hard choice because we have the most options and the best prices!

Matthew from Ohio purchased the Ekena Millwork Acanthus Twist ceiling medallion. He then paired it with an elegant chandelier. The details of the ceiling medallion perfectly accompanied the chandelier and its lights.

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.

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

Ekena Millwork Tristan Ceiling Medallion

Martin from Wheaton, Illinois purchased an Ekena Millwork Tristan Ceiling Medallion not too long ago and just sent us his finished project picture. Wow. It looks amazing.

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.

The Ekena Millwork Tristan Ceiling Medallion comes in a standard factory primed white color that is easy to paint or apply a faux finish. However, there are so many more options to choose from that are available online. Customers can pick a colored finish, whether or not the medallion is split in two or whether there is a center hole drilled out. The combinations are endless, so finding the right ceiling medallion for your next home improvement project will be easy.
