A finial (also known as a spire) is typically located at the highest peak of a conservatory above a gable or hip end.
Dormers, lanterns, and entryways can all utilize finials and there are countless styles and varieties available. A finial’s finish matches the conservatory. In some cases a finial can be used as a lightning rod.
Appliqués are small decorative ornaments that can be placed on base panels, pilasters, or ring and collars. Several styles and sizes are available. All designs are based on the historic fleur-de-lis and rosette motifs. Available in all standard and custom finishes.
Ridge cresting typically adorns the ridge line of decorative conservatories. Classic English conservatories featured ridge cresting and Solar Innovations, Inc. offers several styles to replicate these historic designs. The ridge cresting is used in conjunction with finials to create a classic aesthetic.
Decorative corners and brackets have three functions. The first is an ornamental purpose, where the bracket is known as a spandrel. This piece can be placed in the eave of a structure. The second use for the decorative corner is as a shelf support. The corners are structurally sound and can be used as support shelves to hold accessories, books, and other household objects. Lastly, decorative corners can be used as plant hangers. Mounting the bracket to a wall will provide a solution when hanging baskets.
