Whether you’re updating the look of your home with decorative floor registers or adding practical floor vent covers over air ducts, you have plenty of options. From lightweight plastic to warm wood and durable metal, floor vents come in a range of materials and colours. Looking for a simple white floor diffuser for the laundry room? No problem. Want to spruce up your living room floor vents with an intricate wooden cover? You got it. Today’s floor registers and grilles can complement a variety of decors and blend in seamlessly with any flooring finish.
When choosing your floor registers or grilles, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. A register covers air duct holes in walls or floors and often features adjustable louvers or dampers to direct airflow. Grilles, on the other hand, do not have adjustable louvers. They simply cover the vents where air is blowing between the room and the central heating or cooling unit.
