Why choose Architectural Radiance Metal Infused items?

Architectural Radiance is the only company to unlock the secret of marrying the beauty of natural wood with a splash of moden decor colors and infusing them with the radiance of real aluminum, brass, copper or rusted iron.  We also produce a traditional natural finish product in many standard colors that is of the highest quality.


What does "Color Trend Palette" mean?

The current Color Trend Palette Collections are products that are made with specific coatings and measurement specifications. These products can be ordered today from our website. In addition to the Color Trend Collections, Architectural Radiance can provide bespoke, custom-designed items for the designer / architect for one-of-a-kind design elements. From fabric applications to corporate identity to eye-catching art, the custom possibilities for the metal-infused finishes are almost unlimited.

How do I calculate the number of square feet needed for my wall and ceiling project?

Each wall product is packaged in 35 Sq.Ft. boxes.  Here's how to figure out how many boxes you need.

The math is pretty simple for most rooms and walls.


1.  Measure the area to be covered in inches
2.  Multiply Width x Height
3.  Divide by 144 to convert to square feet
4.  Add 10% for expected waste
5.  Divide total by 35 and round to next whole number to determine number of boxes to order




1.  Wall 145 inches long x 96 inches high
2.  145 in. x 96 in. = 13,920
3.  Divide 13,920 ÷ 144 = 96.67 Square Feet
4.  Multiply by 1.10 and round up to the nearest whole number = 107 Square Feet
5.  Divid 107 Sq. Ft. ÷ 35 and round up to nearest whole number = 4 boxes

Order 4 boxes (35 square feet each)


How much waste should I allow for when ordering wall and ceiling planks?
10% for a standard rectanular shape.  15%-20% for triangular shapes.


Can I mix and match Color Trend Palette finishes in my wood wall and ceiling box?
Although we don't mix colors in each box, for a standard-sized project you can often achieve the same result by purchasing boxes of different colors and mixing them yourself.
