Fluted detailing is an architectural feature that has been around for centuries. Originally used in classical architecture, fluting is a design element that can be added to almost any type of structure to add visual interest and character. While it can be used on both the interior and exterior of a home, fluting is most often seen on doorways and window frames. Whether you choose to feature it on the exterior or interior of your property, there are plenty of inspiring ways to style your home with fluted detailing. Whether you choose to use it on furniture, walls, or ceilings, fluting can add an elegant touch that will elevate the look of any space. Here are twelve inspiring ways to use fluted detailing in your home. Enjoy!
1. Classical Fluted Accent Wall
In this idea, we will make a classical dining area with fluted detailing on the walls. The fluting will be done in a light cream color to match the area rug and furniture. For the dining table, we recommend a rectangular table with fluted legs and a dark wood finish. To complete the look, add some simple yet elegant decor items such as white pillar candles and fluted vases. Once all set, define the space with area rugs to flatter the fluting and add a touch of sophistication.
