Brackets and corbels have been key functional elements in architectural design for hundreds of years. A bracket is defined as "an overhanging member that projects from a structure (such as a wall) and is usually designed to support a vertical load or to strengthen an angle," whereas a corbel is "an architectural member that projects from within a wall and supports a weight, especially: one that is stepped upward and outward from a vertical surface."
Corbels are decorative wall bracket types designed to give support to heavy weights. They serve an artistic and functional purpose, and are used in place of shelf brackets when the load to be supported is great. These are distinctive elements that come in varying shapes, designs, and sizes.
It's always the little touches in a home design that really captures your attention and focus - like icing on a cake. Using decorative brackets and corbels that align with, and complement the style of your home adds to the aesthetic and actual value.
