Many of us like to experiment with new cuisines in our kitchens. While the outcome might vary as far as the actual dish being cooked is concerned, it is almost always the same for our kitchen countertop?it ends up bearing the brunt of our endeavors!
If it is a rustic kitchen decor with an all wooden cabinetry in natural wooden hues, then you better opt for hand carved wooden corbels that are made of wood. The best thing would be to select the same material as the rest of the cabinetry and paint it the same color as well. You can opt for various types of wood like alder, maple, birch, oak, cherry, teak, etc. The rest of the popular materials of corbels like marble and polyurethane are mainly popular for kitchen decorating.
Some of the popular designs of corbels that you can use for granite countertops are: plain, shaped bar bracket, corbel shaped bar, leaf bar, open back bar, traditional scroll, woven, tropical corbel, mission, grapevine, metaline, eagle, and horse corbels. Simple as well as intricate metal designs are available in the market.
When you have a contemporary kitchen decoration with white or beige cabinetry and black granite countertops, the best thing would be to opt for iron corbels. Metal corbels look perfect when they are paired with a light colored background.
Corbels use almost the same functional area as brackets, the only difference between the two is the width; corbels being thicker than brackets. When you choose kitchen countertops with a heavy material like granite or marble, then corbels or brackets become an essential part of their installation.
If we consider engineered quartz countertops, they are available in a wide range of solid colors. Also, the color of an engineered quartz countertop surface is uniform throughout, which is not the case with a granite countertop. They do not need sealing either, and are easier and cheaper to install. However, after the installation, the joints of an engineered quartz countertop are easily visible which hamper its overall appearance. Such joints are not visible in the case of granite countertop installation.
