5 Ways to Bring Corbels Into Your Home Décor

Posted by Richard Enriquez on

Corbels are a great way to add decorative accents to your home. They can be used in many ways, from being just another accent to becoming the focal point for the entire room. This blog post will offer some common corbel designs that you can use to inspire your own space.

A popular choice among architects, designers, and homeowners, corbels can be made from wood, plaster, urethane, and other materials. Corbels can be used to support kitchen cabinets, between window frames, and around islands. The possibilities are endless with corbels.

Corbel tips for your next project

#1 - Add Corbels to your kitchen Island

For a kitchen island, corbels are extremely useful, as they can support the structure, and they are best used between counters so both sides are equally supported. It is essential that all corbels are at least half of the depth of the overhang or ¾ inch. This will give you better results.

#2 - Add Corbels to your range hood

Over an oven range, a corbel makes an impressive statement. You can choose a style that matches your current kitchen style or adds a touch of fancifulness to a more simple kitchen.

Measure the width of your existing range hood and compare it with the maximum depth at which the corbel can be set.

More than 50 styles of decorative corbels are available at Mouldings, Corbels & More in a variety of sizes and species. click here.

Corbels can add depth and charm to your shelves. You can paint them unfinished or stain them if you buy them prefinished. For example, a wooden corbel should account for 70 percent of the overall depth of a shelf.

If you want to add an extra decorative touch to your kitchen, go with mouldings and carvings that match the wood. Their depth will make them a focal point of your decor. If you want a more casual look, you can simply paint or stain them.
