Choosing a Design
Depending on the goal of your renovation, you may want to find a corbel design that is appropriate for the time period your house was built. If your home was not built during a period that corbels were popular, there are still a wide range of design options ranging from modern simplicity to complex Victorian. Corbels can be purchased in a variety of styles and finished in a color that complements your home décor.
Where to Install
Whether your home’s entry way is graced by pillars or not, you can still install corbels on both the interior and exterior of the house. For the exterior, they are often installed along the eaves of roofs to add an extra accent. On the inside of your home, corbels are a great addition to any fireplace mantel or beneath a kitchen island. They can be used to support cabinetry or countertops, and can even be placed in doorways or long hallways to add interesting visual breaks in the wall.
Once you’ve determined what kind of look you want for you home remodel, it is easy to find a corbel design that matches your theme. Corbels can be ordered for both interior and exterior installation, and will instantly give your home a fresh new look. The detailed mill work used in your corbels is a tasteful way to update your home today.
