Crooked House Numbers

Crooked House Numbers

Everyone knows of that one house in a neighborhood that’s curb appeal just isn’t up to par with the rest of neighboring homes.  Yes, “that” house.  You know the one I mean! Grass a little too high, hedges a little untrimmed, house numbers peeling.  While all these play a part, the condition of your address plaque can say a great deal about your home and plaques with number that are falling off or crooked can reflect poorly upon visitors as it is the primary identifier of your home.

A simple solution to peeling, crooked numbers is an address plaque made of aluminum that can be mounted on your home or in your yard.  Also, weather resistant, aluminum will allow your address plaque to stand the test of time.  Metropolis Iron’sselection of address plaques come with numbers in a standard 5” print, but can be customized by to 8”.  In addition, our line of address plaques offers homeowner an array of attractive designs to choose from.

Small Drapery Medallion Available from Metropolis Iron

Small Drapery Medallion Available from Metropolis Iron

In the world of drapery hardware the most commonly requested size of drapery medallions is by far medium sized medallions.  While medium medallions can be used for a variety of window treatment designs, in some design scenarios, a medium drapery medallion will be too large and overwhelm the design concept.  This is when using a small or extra small drapery medallion can be the perfect design solution.

Small drapery medallions range in diameter from 1 ¼” to 2” and are dainty enough to be used in even the most intricate window treatments.  Metropolis Iron’s standard projection for small drapery rosettes is 3”, but we also offer custom projections up to 8” for any window treatment scenario.

Where Should I Mount My Address Plaque?

Incorrect Address Plaque Placement

Whether you’re searching for an address plaque for your own home or as a thoughtful gift for friends or family, take a few moments to consider the placement of the address plaque in relation to the home.

There are various places that an address plaque should be displayed including; near your front door, on an exterior wall, on a mailbox, or in the yard.   Take a walk across your street or several yards away from your home’s entrance to ensure that rescue personnel and your guests can see your address from where you are considering mounting it.

Take a few digital photos of the area you are considering for address plaque placement to guide you as you shop at Metropolis Iron online.   If you have a wall mounted mailbox in your entryway, consider mounting the address plaque near the wall mounted mailbox to complement it.  If you have a column or post mounted mailbox alongside the curb, consider an address plate for the column or an address plate for the post-mounted mailbox.  If you are seeking an entryway-mounted or wall-mounted application, search for address plaques or address plates which can be easily adhered to the mounting surface with a couple of screws or construction glue.

Iron Corbels Stand Test of Time!

Posted by Misti On July 9th

Scored Scroll Iron Corbel

Using iron corbels for your kitchen counter helps provide the necessary support that keeps your counter strong and sturdy.  Generally, any counter top that has a hangover of more than eight inches should be supported with some sort of counter top support brackets.  And if your countertop is of a heavy material like granite or marble, then you need corbels that are strong enough to provide support and sustain the weight of such heavy materials.

Iron corbels are popular because they are extremely sturdy and practically indestructible.  Meaning, no matter how big or heavy your countertop is, an iron corbel will support it without any issue of breaking down or bending.  All you need to do is to ensure that the corbel has been mounted properly and securely.  On the other hand if you use corbels made of wood or other materials, a delicate or carved design will fail to provide the necessary support to the heavy countertop.  They also have a higher probability of chipping, scratching getting damaged because the materials are so much softer than iron.  Another added benefit is that an iron counter top support bracket will not rot or decay with use as is the case with wooden corbels.

Since strength is not an issue where iron is concerned, you can choose ornately designed iron corbels to further add to the beauty of your kitchen counter.  Metropolis Iron’s large selection of counter top support brackets provides a designer option for any kitchen!   We can even custom design one for you.
