What Are Pilasters?
Pillars and pilasters are often used interchangeably however, a pillar is a tall vertical structure of stone, wood or metal, used as a supporting architecture for a building. Whereas, a pilaster is a rectangular column used to give the appearance of a supporting structure from the wall to which it is attached, however, its main purpose is to project an ornamental outlook. Pilasters simply add architectural elegance and detail to any entrance.
