Pilasters can also be used decoratively around fireplaces or instead of normal casings to create an opulent grand entrance for any formal room or doorway. They can stand alone or be integrated with wainscoting, chair rails, baseboards or crown moldings depending on the application.

They can also be modified to go around or into a corner.
