The ratio of the height (h) and diameter (d) of a column are determined by the column order (style). The column’s diameter will range from 1/7 to 1/10 its height, depending on the order (see image above).
The following steps will help you pick your decorative column:
Step 1. Select a style that fits your design or space
Step 2. Measure or determine the height for the desired column
Step 3. Use the figures above to select the appropriate column a related ratio.
1. For the Corinthian order
2. Column height desired is 8 feet (or 96”)
3. The ratio is diameter (d) = height (h) ÷ 10
- d = h ÷ 10
- d = 96” ÷ 10
- d = 9.6”
In this case, we would select the closest standard diameter, which is a 10" column.
A column is typically freestanding and round. They are at times wrapped around an exterior corner, fixed flat against a wall, or fitted to an interior or external corner (see images below).
The cross-section of the column is typically smooth or fluted (grooved), but there are variations.
