In fact, corbels can create instant architectural excitement in any room of your home. Corbels work beautifully with granite countertops, but can work with any horizontal surface. Corbels can dress up a kitchen stove area, being placed on the wall above the stove on each side of the stove hood area.

Osborne carries a wide variety of corbels that are not only heavy enough to serve as effective bookends, but beautiful enough to fit any décor!

For interior entryways you can position the corbels facing each other—beautiful! Even the simplest everyday things, if placed on top of a decorative corbel, suddenly become a showcase that attracts attention. Removal of the corbels from work that has been completed in this manner would be impossible without deconstructing the cabinet work. For proper alignment of the corbel, you can place the corbel on the wall using the hanging method described above, pressing firmly to fully coat both surfaces with the wood glue. The screws and/or bolts used in the next step effectively clamp the two wood surfaces together as the glue dries, forming a tight bond. Take care not to use a screw that is so long it will go entirely through to the front of the corbel. If it is not possible to attach the corbel with screws from behind the corbel, you can screw the corbel into the mounting surface from the front, and simply cover the heads of the screws with wood putty when done.

Corbels to be used under a countertop should be at least 1/2 of the depth of the overhang which it will support, and look even better when they are 2/3 or ¾ of the depth of the overhang. Using 8 or 9 inch corbels provides extra support and makes the corbels a bit more visually appealing. In this case you should install the end corbel(s) against the wall. Corbels can give any room a warm, casual feeling, or an air of formal elegance, or anything in between depending on the style you choose. Your imagination is the only limitation in finding places to put these beautiful focal points! Choose beautiful carved wood corbels to make any breakfast bar a show-stopper! Use corbels under your cabinets for an instant, elegant upgrade. Your fireplace is where your family gathers often, and you can make it a showpiece by adding just two well-chosen corbels.
