What is a Corbel/ Bracket?

Posted by Holli McRae on 7/31/15 8:30 AM

A corbel/ bracket is a structural or decorative bracket placed between a vertical wall and a horizontal surface (ceiling, counter, tabletop, roof). Corbels are made from wood, plaster or marble, and synthetic materials. Generally when they are made from sythetic materials (polyurethane) they last much longer. Worthington brackets actually have a lifetime warranty. Brackets that are made from polyurethane are not load bearing and are for decorative purposes only. You can definitely get creative with them since they can be cut just like a typical wood bracket. You can use them for shelves or even curtain rods to add a little touch of unexpected pizazz to your home.
