Exterior Decorative Foam Columns ~ Column Cladding ~ Production

Columns are probably the most spectacular element of the house facade decoration. Egyptian and Roman colonnades make a lasting impression. By general appearance, the columns are divided into so-called orders:

  • The Greek warrant is Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian.
  • A Roman warrant is Tuscan and composite.

In turn, the column of any order consists of three main parts:

  1. the capital of the column – the upper curly part
  2. column barrel – smooth or with slots – flutes
  3. column base – lower curly part

In modern architecture, the following proportions of diameter to height (base, body, capital) are considered to be classical proportions for the manufacture of columns:

  • Tuscan column – 1: 7
  • Doric Column – 1: 8
  • Ionic Column – 1: 9
  • Corinthian Column – 1:10
  • Composite column – 1:10

Of course, the trunk of a classical column should have a narrowing in height – entasis. But, due to the technical complexity of execution and high cost, we offer a cylindrical body of the column. Entasis column we can do without a reinforcing layer. We produce the column trunk to the floor of the column, which allows you to draw up an existing carrier column. Our catalog offers three types of slots – flutes. For the bases and capitals of columns, we also produce halves. The column elements we offer are from the Doric order.

The surface quality of the protective layer of our columns allows us to use them in addition to the facade of the house and the interior. In comparison with polyurethane analogs, our products are more than 2 times cheaper.

Decorative columns for the home – use, advantages, types

Classical, oriental, and some modern styles of home decoration imply an abundance of complex architectural structures, and shapes – pilasters, columns, balustrades, and cornices. Modern technologies make it possible to minimize costs for them and to simplify as much as possible the procedure for erection, installation and replacing products made of plaster, brick, wood, stone, and reinforced concrete with their imitation. High-quality Indoor Decorative Columns have found particular distribution and recognition in this area.

You can buy these products quite inexpensively – they will cost several times cheaper than their construction in the traditional way. You can immediately order a ready-made structure, and simply install it even without the involvement of professional builders. Next, it remains to complete only the final finishing – paint or plaster.

Interior Decorative Columns

Modern interior columns for a home are made of polyurethane or foam. Unlike traditional structures, they do not play the role of load-bearing elements but serve only for decoration.

This is a versatile and practical solution for styling space, zoning a room, and creating a rich, solid atmosphere. Moreover, all this is at a price that is affordable even with a limited budget. To save as much as possible, they choose decorative columns for the interior made of foam. Polyurethane options are more durable, expensive-looking, and practical designs that are not subject to rotting and the spread of fungi.

Among the options, you can also choose Decorative Half Columns Interior, which are structures in the form of half a column, one side mounted to the wall. They allow you to create a special chic and luxury even in a relatively small room, when it is irrelevant or not possible to install a full-fledged pillar in the middle of the room. With their help of them, they decorate the space, highlight functional areas, arches, doors, and mask engineering structures on the walls – air ducts, and pipes.

Decorative Columns Exterior

In the construction of houses, and cottages in a classic, artsy modern style, Decorative Outdoor Columns are actively used. They add high cost, and prestige to the facade of the house, making it richer and more effective. The quality factor of the building is emphasized.

If the column is to perform an exclusively decorative function, foam and polyurethane products are also used outside the house. Decorative Porch Columns gained popularity. With their help of them, they decorate the entrance group, making it more expressive, richer, and more beautiful. They are installed on the sides of the front door.

Decorative columns for the exterior and pilasters are also often used in the design of facades. The building is acquiring a status and solid appearance, and the cost of such structures is quite low. Installation requires minimal preparation, so you can handle it yourself.

Depending on the style of home decoration, classic decorative Roman columns are most often used here. In modern trends, smooth, even pillars without threads or even rectangular structures are used. The material of manufacture allows you to cut out almost any pattern.

Advantages of decorative columns for the home

In general, if the column is needed only for decoration, and should not serve as a load-bearing element of the building, decorative pillars for the home should be ordered for the following reasons:

  • variety of designs, including products with individual configurations;
  • environmental friendliness, safety, and absence of toxic substances in the composition;
  • durability and wear resistance with minimal maintenance;
  • low cost;
  • ease of installation, and transportation;
  • low weight;
  • elementary care and maintenance.

When operating, it is worth considering the fragility and relatively low strength of decorative columns, especially those designed for use inside the house. Therefore, you need to protect them from blows, and damage from sharp objects.

Decorative designs can be ordered for any budget with any design – from laconic minimalism to artsy classics. Opt for quality products made from durable materials that can last for decades.
