Home Decorating Idea: Vent Cover

By Joe Peters

There are definitely home decorating ideas that you haven’t discovered, like vent cover designs. Often when you pick up a magazine, perhaps while waiting at the doctor’s office, a vent design in the home decorating section catches your eye. When I wanted to get ideas on vent covers for aesthetic purposes, one of the best resources of free home decorating ideas is the Internet

If you’re into home decorating, you will realize soon enough that vents are usually eyesores in a well-decorated room. The problem is that these vents need to stay because they are necessary for proper ventilation. So, what you can do is to make sure the vent cover you choose will blend in well with the rest of the furnishings.

I just thought, if I were to design a room similar to those decorated by professional interior decorators, the vent covers will have to be much prettier than the generic look. Changing the vent covers requires a whole lot of effort regarding planning and the actual decorating, but the results are definitely worth it.

Try to use your imagination when thinking of vent cover designs. What colors invigorate you? Is your eye drawn to wood, vibrant color, or chrome? If you know the style you want, you can decorate your vents with the sense of security that comes from knowing your choices will be comfortable, stylish and long-lasting.

When choosing vent covers, always consider the material of the cover. Solid brass is the sturdiest material for vent covers. Aluminum is the material of choice of home owners who want something less expensive than brass but just as durable. Easily paintable, aluminum can be used in any room, no matter what the general decor is.

Wooden vent covers are extremely beautiful especially if the woodwork is done by an artist. Woodworkers like using oak, maple, and cherry because these are the most durable wood around. You can use a colorant to personalize the look of your air vents as wood absorbs color better than any material.

If you’re on a budget, you can get plastic vent covers. One drawback of using plastic, though, is the way it looks.

Your vent sizes may limit your choices for you. The best thing to do is to measure the dimensions of your vents to get the best possible design that will actually fit your vents. So that you get it right the first time, original vent cover to expose the ventilation opening.
