Flush Mount Vent Covers
Floor mounted air vent covers are usually one of the things you’ll need to consider when getting new flooring. Depending on the flooring manufacturer you choose, they may not offer matching air vent grilles, and even if they did, chances are they aren’t flush mount ones.
Top Mount vs Flush Mount Air Vent Covers
If matching air vent covers aren’t available through your flooring supplier, you can certainly find some standard top mount ones from a local hardware store. They are usually made of three materials, plastic, metal and wood. The plastic ones look cheap, break easily and oxidize over time. The metal ones, on the other hand, bend easily and look cold. Wooden ones are great, but chances are they won’t match your flooring unless you re-stain them. Even if matching top mount grilles are available, there are still reasons why they are less desirable. The first reason being that they protrude from the floor and could become tripping hazards. The second reason is that they look like afterthoughts when compared to the sleeker, more contemporary flush mount ones. Floors are flat, so should the floor vent covers.
Custom Made, Unique Design
So you might be thinking, why can’t you just get those flush mount air register covers Home Depot carries? It’s because they are made to match the thickness and colour of the floorings they sell, not yours. Our flush mount air vent covers are custom made from your pre-purchased flooring so they will match and blend in perfectly. Also, most of the pre-manufactured grilles have the same vent patterns, boring, isn’t it? When you order your flush mount air vent covers from us, you can customize the vent pattern however you like. You can see some of the more popular patterns in the gallery on this page. If you need irregularly shaped or sized vent covers, we can also accommodate.
Registers vs Grilles vs Vent Covers
The terms air registers, grilles and vent covers are often used interchangeably. Air vent covers and grilles are used interchangeable, and usually don’t have a damper to control the air flow, whereas air registers do. If you’d like air dampers on your flush mount air vent covers, just let us know when you place the order. We also offer other custom vent products such as cold air return register covers and top mount floor vent covers.
