Square Stone Columns

Unlike round columns that we usually see, square columns give off a certain edge that would definitely give element to your house or an establishment that you own. In huge establishments, columns are installed not only for its integral part in supporting the structure, but to enhance the appearance of the establishment as well.

In weddings, it is important to define the element of your design according to the interior or exterior appearance of the venue. If it should happen that the venue you chose has square columns, you should know how to decorate it in order to optimize its unusual structure.

Cast stone columns are lovely to look at by itself, but if you are stuck with plain and boring pillars, you should definitely do something about it. However, if you notice chips, cracks, stains and other damages, you should contact a professional right away, especially if you are working with structures in large houses.

For assistance with columns, custom designs and such, call Marvelous Marble Design Inc at 1-888-272-0630.

Materials for Decorating Columns

  •      Garland
  •      Glue
  •      Faux flowers
  •      Tulle
  •      Measuring tape
  •      Scissors
  •      Tape
  •      J hook
  •      Satin / silk cloth

What next?

Technically, let your imagination drive you. Unlike round columns, square pillars have flat surfaces, which make it easier for you to decorate it. If the columns appear mundane, add some color and texture to it. You can either use soft cloths like satin or silk and drape it around the edges to give off a more dramatic look.

You can also make faux flower garlands and wrap it around the pillars. This will work well especially in spring/summer themed weddings. Square pillars can also be repainted. Hire a professional painter to do the job and either marbleize your columns or splash some artistic and abstract designs to it.

  •      Paint glaze
  •      Vein color paint
  •      Soft rag or sponge
  •      Roller brush

What to do

Regardless if you have Greek or Italian marble columns, let your designer decide the best shades and patterns to apply. If you have ideas regarding marble structures, you can also give your input, so as to express your own element.

  •       Choose the proper paint intended for interior or exterior marble design.
  •      Clean the surface of your columns so the base coat can be applied. For this, a roller brush would evenly do the trick.
  •      Add the glaze for a see-through effect. The more glaze you use, the more see-through your background will be.
  •      The veining bands will come out by using a medium brush. Ask the artist to blend them carefully. The key is to avoid any sharp edges.
  •      The twist and twirls can be more emphasized by using a narrow brush. Let the paint dry.
  •      For a polished look, seal the column using a satin sealer; or if you want a glossier effect, a gloss sealer will do.

The column lacks an identifiable base and is generally a wider type of column that is grooved or fluted from the top to the bottom.

Ionic column design

The main features of the ionic column design that sets it apart from the Doric include its intricate curves, squared base that is thinner than Doric design, spiraling horns, and a capital that is carved, scrolled and heavy. The legendary designs that have Ionic designs in history include erechtheion in Athens and the Coliseum in Rome. Though the Ionic design is like the Doric design in many aspects, it is considered to be a stronger and elegant improvement.

Roman and Tuscan

The Tuscan columns are the simplest of columns. They are tapered, do not have flutes and their shafts are very smooth.  They are mainly plain but a lot more improved than the Doric column with a base and capital that are plain and diameter seven times smaller than the height.
