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.
Though granite countertops can withstand tons of abuse, its surface can get chipped if steaming hot pots and pans are placed directly onto the granite. This is because the hard granite stones comprises some soft, thin strips of granite, which cannot absorb all the heat applied to its surface. Thus, one must be careful to place hot dishes on trivets and hot pads.
Corbels are an excellent option if you are looking for a solid support for heavy countertops like those made from granite. However, when it comes to choosing the best corbels for granite countertops, there are a lot of things to consider.
Granite countertops have to be sealed on a yearly basis to maintain their shine and luster. Neglecting sealing on a regular basis can cause the granite countertop to become cloudy and stained. Kitchen sinks have to be carefully purchased, because replacing the sink installed in-between the granite countertop will prove expensive, as it will require the removal of the entire granite slab.
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.
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.
