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. Finally, these ceiling medallions are in stock and ready for immediate shipment!

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.

Urethane Railing for Stairs at Lake Erie College

Did you know that there are thousands of different railing options on ArchitecturalDepot.com to choose from? Customers can even customize their orders for deck railing. Simply call one of our sales representatives and allow them to help you build the perfect railing that is up to code standards. They would be more than glad to help!

Recent customer, Herb from Lake Erie College, purchased several railing components for the next college renovation project. Ordered in a plain white color, the railing components matched the door’s trim while contrasting beautifully with the stairs. Going forward, the students at this college campus will be able to safely walk down the steps of the building and into a brighter future.

The customer used the following railing components on his project:

Each component is made out of premium urethane material. The benefits of urethane outweigh other common baluster materials like resin, plastics, wood and aluminum. Unlike those other materials, urethane will not crack, warp or split. This material is impervious to insects as well. With all of those benefits, the urethane railing components are perfect for exterior use.

Behind the Scenes: Ekena Millwork Dublin Casing

Pictured below are several Ekena Millwork Dublin window and door casing on a padded rack. We use these padded rolling racks to transport larger products. By using these racks, the probability of scuffmarks on the products is reduced exponentially. These particular Dublin casings are on their way to be trimmed by one of our warehouse team members. After they are trimmed and inspected for quality control, the Dublin casings will be packaged and shipped to the customer.

Our beautiful casing adds a decorative, historic, feel to walls, ceilings, and furniture pieces. They are made from a high density urethane which gives each piece the unique details that mimic that of traditional plaster and wood designs, but at a fraction of the weight. This means a simple and easy installation for you. These are also commonly used for an inexpensive wainscot look.

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.
