A corbel is a decorative bracket that is used to support an overhanging countertop or shelf. Corbels are typically made of wood or metal and are often designed to complement the style of the kitchen, such as traditional or modern.
In addition to providing support, corbels can add visual interest and a sense of craftsmanship to a kitchen design. They can be used to create a focal point on a kitchen island or to add character to a range hood. Corbels can also be used to support open shelves or to create a built-in look for appliances such as microwaves or wine refrigerators.
Corbels can be purchased in a variety of styles and sizes, or they can be custom-made to fit the specific needs of a kitchen design. When selecting corbels for a kitchen, it is important to consider the weight of the countertop or shelf they will be supporting, as well as the overall design aesthetic of the space.
