Help finding metal vents

Postby wwilber » Wed Jan 03, 2007 5:42 pm

Has anyone had any luck finding reasonably priced metal vents in either a stainless or nickel finish?

I think these will probably work, provided your wall vents are a relatively common size:



Put "R672C" into the search field to see several size options. These are polished chrome, but they'll look more or less like stainless.

This company carries wood vents, which would look pretty sharp flush mounted in the door once you get them stripped and stained. They carry all sorts of wood species.



Good luck!

Nice Laser Cut Wood Grilles

Pattern Cut has wood vent grilles reminiscent of concrete screen block walls.
I have used Pattern A and Pattern G on a few projects, each time painting the grille to match the adjacent wall or wallpaper.

They will cut the grille to any size.

Forgot to post the price for the metal vents previously (remembering your cost concerns). The ones from Altlanta Supply were in the $30 range.

Thanks for the tips and insight. I will be exploring some of these options soon, and will update with the progress!
