First impressions matter!
Architectural Pier caps or concrete pier caps are architects’ first choice for adding an elegant look and splendour to any gate post, concrete column, wall or fence.
Your walls and gateposts are the first things that people notice about your property. Thus, choosing the right design and colour for your pier caps makes your home stand out in the neighbourhood. Aesthetics apart, pier caps also protect the gate pillar or the concrete column from weather damage.
HERE ARE THREE TIPS TO HELP YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT PIER CAPS FOR YOUR HOME.
1. CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE
To achieve the desired aesthetic result for your home, it is important to pick the right sized when installing pier caps based on the exact dimensions of your entrance gates and concrete columns.
Typically, pier caps or pillar Caps are designed to have an overhang, in-order to shield the concrete column or pier. However, too much of an overhang can result in disproportionate appearance and be an eyesore. An equally critical for pier caps to be exactly proportionate to the size of concrete columns and piers to achieve the desired aesthetic effect.
Similarly, when using pier caps on the fence for your home in Sydney, you need to be mindful of the height restriction and ensure that the additional height of the pier cap does not add to the structure of your fence.
2. BLEND WITH THE SURROUNDINGS
Consider taking cues from your surroundings to choose the design and colour for your pier caps. You may match the design of the pier caps with the architectural theme of your home. Explore flat top pier cap for its unmistakable modern, minimalist style, the popular and classic pillar caps with a chamfered lip or a ball finial to protect the entrance from any further damage and add a classy touch to the street of your house.
If you prefer a bold and visually striking look, you may contrast the colour and design of the pier caps. Do you prefer a seamless, unified look? Consider choosing a colour for your pier cap that complements the architectural columns, or even the pavement outside.
