Corbels and brackets are, basically, decorative architectural pieces that support or enhance another object.
While we are usually all about the importance of adding items that totally renovate a room, or add functionality to a space, in this case we call attention to the importance of small details. Just as jewelry adds pizazz to a basic outfit, embellishing the existing structural elements of your home with budget friendly adornments, like corbels, adds character. What you get is a huge impact for a minimal investment.
Make a statement and express your personal style by strategically incorporating decorative corbels and brackets into your overall room design. Framing a window, beneath a range hood, supporting an open shelf or flanking a doorway, these design elements are suitable for every decorating style.
Today’s kitchens are prime real estate for utilizing corbels.
- Supporting the overhang on islands and peninsulas. (position chairs or stools under the countertop before deciding on the placement of the brackets)
- On either side of a wall of cabinetry
- Under a built in desk top
- Placed as bookends on an open shelf
When placed under a cabinet or counter, corbels give the illusion of support, adding to the visual impact of the structure. Let your imagination run rampant and visualize a mantel, library table or entryway surrounded by iconic, classic sophistication.
Available in a variety of sizes and materials, decorative and supportive brackets give homeowners quite a bang for their buck.
