Finials Architecture: Popular Finials to Use Outdoors

Once you have a garden design plan in place, you are on your way to creating the look for your garden landscape. Create a garden wish list so you know what will work for you in your garden. This should include plans for your garden and highlight spaces for entertaining your guests. Some homeowners will add charm to their garden by creating patios and decks with seating spaces. Sometimes, if space permits, a courtyard would also be created to accommodate time for spending in the garden. There are also gardens which invest in giving a good time by creating secret gardens as part of their landscape. Such gardens are intended to offer a private retreat and are welcomed because they offer us a chance to withdraw and meditate for peace.

As you plan to add a structure to your garden landscape, you will also begin to invest in accessories to add to your garden. Some of these additions would include sculptures and ornaments like garden finials and orbs. Many homeowners are fascinated with the use of garden finials and some invest in large finials to set a focal point to their courtyards resting such ornaments on pedestals along driveways as an instance.

So, what are finials and why the interest in them? Mention the word “finial” and most of us would think of the base of the lamp shade or the end attachments you would use on your curtain rods. Some of us may also use smaller finials which act as decorative objects for the bathrooms or foyers. When used indoors, they have acquired a form with all other accessories, some more telling than the others when used as pineapple finials or when they are created to acquire the look of an animal like a horse finial as an instance.

However, finials go further than just adding a presence in the house. While they once adorned the top or corner of a building often residing on rooftops, architectural finials are now used to add a unique dimension to the garden creating either formality or informality where they are used. Many of these finials now come in many forms from heavy cast stone pieces to expensive bronze forms to fiberglass resin finials which are designed lightweight. Walk around any garden and you will notice that finials have formed part of the landscape. They welcome the look of the classical past and add a sense of history and appeal to the location where they are placed.

So, what are the kind of architectural finials which add interest and why?
