Architectural Details and Everyday Eyesores
Architectural Details Solve Industrial Details of Everyday Eyesores
Architectural features and details play several roles in defining the style, beauty and functionality of interior spaces. They add visual interest, contribute to the style of the decor and can add elements of superior craftsmanship and artistry to your home. Your attention to the details should include changing your everyday eyesores with products that not only add beauty but also contribute to their functionality. Everyday eyesores are the industrial details which provide heating and air conditioning, lighting, privacy, security, safety and all the comforts of the modern conveniences we enjoy in our homes and commercial spaces today. If you have a historic home or a “classic” style the architectural features and details are essential to its integrity and should be retained and preserved whenever possible.
Everyday Eyesores or Industrial Details
Replacing everyday eyesores is a perfect example of adding details with superior craftsmanship which compliment the architectural style and define and contribute to the classical integrity of the decor. The white, louvered HVAC grille is an industrial detail that is mass produced cheaply in foreign countries and installed universally as builders grade products in all homes and businesses. In this case the transformation adds to the beauty of the established architectual details and style.

Everyday Eyesore – Filter Grilles
Architectural details give a house interest, texture, depth, a story and so much more. And while details can liven up and enrich our experience of a home, it often isn’t thought about until the end. This everyday eyesore is even more noticeable with the architectural improvements that have been made to the decor. Filter grilles are particularly a problematic eyesore and there are limited solutions that are both handsome and functional. Beaux-Arts Classic Products makes the best return air filter grilles in the marketplace. We have recently improved our excellent filter grilles by converting them into “magnetic” filter grilles.

Foundation Vent Cover Everyday Eyesores
The trick to thinking about what to do about transforming your everyday eyesores with details that will add to their functionality AND appearance is knowing your options. Another terrible eyesore are exterior foundation crawl space vent covers. There are no attractive options and they have a terrible impact on the appearance of the exterior of your home. We created this product because our home is required to have flood ports in the crawl space. We purchased automatic Foundation Vent Covers from GAF. As you can see there is nothing architecturally attractive about them. Beside that, after 3-4 years they are not functioning. There is no way to know that they are not working. If it happens during winter months you risk frozen pipes. If it happens during spring/summer you have a moisture problem. So we developed the BEST foundation vent covers in the marketplace. All of our products are designed and manufactured by us in Salisbury, Maryland.

Our Foundation Vent Covers are cast in the highest quality urethane resin which will withstand UV rays. We offer 12 finishes which are heat cured and an integral part of the grille manufacturing process. They come with the Decorative Grille, Blocking Plate and 2 pieces of screen mesh.

Another application of our superior Foundation Vent Covers is for Encapsulated Foundation Crawl Spaces. Over the last 10 years builders and architects are recommending a new approach for crawl spaces, encapsulating the foundation with heavy plastic sheeting to prevent the moisture from ever getting into the crawlspace to begin with. Encapsulation also includes a drainage system that takes water away from the foundation as well as a powerful dehumidifier that controls the humidity especially during hot summers and rainy seasons. The old foundation ports or vent holes are also sealed and covered on the inside with heavy plastic sheeting. If it sounds great, it is.
I think it is important to show the industrial eyesores our beautiful details transformed.

Finally, Radiator eyesores are transformed with our 3-dimensional grille designs. We are the only manufacturer of 3-dimensional grille designs. There is no comparison between a laser cut grille or metal mesh screen to fabricate a radiator cover. Our Louis XIV Grille style is a favorite for radiator covers.
A radiator without a cabinet is less efficient than a radiator with a cabinet. Without a cabinet, the heat radiates outward too quickly and the cold air on the floor never gets heated. The coldest air in any room is always on the floor. If the floor remains cold, then your radiator needs a cabinet to improve overall warmth. A nice cabinet with a Beaux-Arts’ Radiator Grille will enhance the look of any room.
Beaux-Arts Classic Products makes the best radiator grilles. However, we don’t make cabinets since almost every radiator requires a custom sized cabinet. This is due to the size of the radiator, placement of the valves, and location of adjacent walls, windows and door molding. Full size radiator cabinets are expensive to ship. So, it is best to have a local handyman, cabinet maker or builder construct and install a custom cabinet for you. Beaux-Arts can help plan and design a custom radiator cabinet. All you have to do is photograph your radiator and email or text (301-789-6016) it to us along with the dimensions (width x depth x height). Tell us what style grille you prefer.
We will send you a custom radiator cabinet design made exclusively for your radiator. Your design will arrive via email in .pdf format, which will be easy to either print or send by email. Once you have the design, you can use it to find someone locally to make the cabinet for you. You can even use the drawing to solicit bids from more than one carpenter. Plus the same person can install the cabinet for you. Another added benefit of employing a local craftsman is no shiping charges.
