For years the basement has been considered a dark, damp, forgotten zone in the average North American home. Basements were the place where old appliances went to die and long forgotten keepsakes were stored in piles from floor to ceiling. In short, the basement was the last place in a home where anyone would want to spend their time.
But these days there's a new trend in home design. Homeowners, Contractors, Architects, and Interior Decorators have discovered that the basement is a perfect place to design a family fun space or even an additional guest room for visiting friends and family. One challenge to this bonus room make over is the cold and uninviting basement pole known as the Lally Column.
"Lally Column" (Sometimes referred to as a "Lolly" Column) is the term used to describe typical cement filled steel basement poles found throughout the Northwest and Mid-Atlantic regions of North America. These circular metal tubes are commonly used in basements and garages to support overhead beams and girders.
While these concrete filled metal pipes are an effective means to holding up a ceiling, most homeowners consider them to be an unsightly eye sore when designing home decorating plans for their basement living space.
In answer to this home makeover dilemma, Architectural Depot has designed decorative basement pole covers with warm wood veneers and paintable finishes. Our stain grade basement pole coverings are made of real wood veneers in Cherry, Maple, and Red Oak and if you prefer, there is also a paintable version.
Whether you are a licensed Contractor or just your average Homeowner, these decorative Lally Column Covers are easy to install, adjustable, and add the perfect finishing touch to your basement remodeling project.
The Architectural Depot Lally Column cover is a breakthrough in home design and decoration. Taking what was once considered an obstacle to basement remodeling and turning it into a value adding asset for homeowners across the country. What was formerly a cold, immovable obstruction can now be transformed into a decorative accent to your new family living space adding warmth and value to your home.
