By Nick Bell, Senior Designer White River Hardwoods
The image below left is an opening from the RCR project. A customer wanted to replicate this design, but the space they were working with was more modest.
The space had a lower ceiling and had less width on one side. These constraints meant that the original design could not simply be applied to this new space.
The first major revision was at the top of the opening. Rather than have a large header and a large crown detail, the two needed to be combined. The Traditional CR820 was used as the top of the header and then continued around the room as the perimeter crown.
The pilaster base was used unchanged from the original design. It is on the tall side for this opening size, but the customer loved its form and did not want any adjustments.
There are a great multitude of ideas and examples throughout White River’s website and catalogs, in both photography and drawings. Do not despair if your space does not fit these examples perfectly.
