Wooden, metal, marble, and polyurethane are most sought after when it comes to durability and strong support for granite countertops as well as kitchen islands. Selection of the best type of corbels for your countertops depends upon the kitchen decoration theme as well as the colors of the countertops. Granite is available in colors like black, white, red, green, and blue.
Both quartz and quartzite are used to make premium, designer kitchen countertops. Both stronger than granite and have a natural beauty at par with that of marble and other exotic stone surfaces.
When acidic solutions used as ingredients in daily cooking, like orange juice, lemon juice, wine, coffee, alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, etc., are brought in contact with the granite countertop, the surface can become dull or even etched. The expensive granite you invested in, can lose its sparkle and shine. As far as possible, to minimize the damage, clean spills right away.
Corbels come in a huge array of designs, sizes, shapes, and materials. You will find them in almost all imaginable shapes from the standard L-joints to attractive and elegant designs found in classic style stone corbels. Different contemporary designs like vines, flowers, grapes, leaves and many other abstract designs that go with that particular kitchen style will also be available. Along with the patterns and sizes, there is a huge variety when it comes to materials for corbels.
Installing a granite slab is a very laborious and tedious task, due to which, the installation can cost almost three times the amount spent on the slab. Granite also requires an additional supporting structure during the installation as it is very heavy. However, once a granite countertop is installed, it becomes a permanent structure. Removing it later can even harm the adjoining structures. Their biggest advantage is that they sport a luminous surface and give a very rich look to the kitchen furniture.
Granite is the most expensive countertop material available today. Its installation requires new cabinetry to be placed as a part of the entire kitchen makeover. This substantially increases the cost of installation. Moreover, granite slabs have to be selected, matched, cut, polished, sealed and installed with little room for error.
