Corbels for Additional Support
Corbels will dress up and add extra support to bookshelves, fireplace mantel shelves, bars, kitchen countertops or any ledges. There are a lot of corbels specifically designed for this purpose. Supportive corbels and wood brackets (for additional countertop support) are usually much deeper than wood corbels intended for decoration only. Boston corbels and Los-Angeles counter corbels are great examples of clean line corbels that are perfect for additional support for kitchen counter or a bar shelf. Traditional corbel's design makes it easy to incorporate them into any decorative scheme. If you want corbels that will serve double duty - be decorative and provide extra support - we have selected just for you.
The simple and graceful lines of corbels are very appealing. Open-side design gives corbels a light and airy appearance, delightful carving on the front of the corbels is not overpowering - just enough to add some decorative details and express your personality. Corbels for counter and kitchen island support have an ergonomic design, they curve-in allowing knee room for comfortable setting - counter brackets.
