Corbels and brackets are mostly used in design plans as countertop support brackets, but can also be used in a variety of other places in your home and yard.

Corner Brackets: 

Corner brackets are great for a variety of design uses.  One fantastic design idea is to use a set of ornate corner brackets to embellish a window or entry way.  Also, in a home with post and beams or a screened in porch or lanai with posts, corner brackets can be used to add depth to posts.

Hanging Brackets:

Hanging brackets can be incorporated into interior or exterior design plans in a variety of ways including hanging plants, bird feeders, and candles.

Mailbox Brackets:

Mailbox brackets are used as support from your mail box to the post and while many designs are made for functionality, a decorative bracket is extremely functional and also provides curb appeal to your home.

Mantle Brackets:

While mantle brackets are generally wooden, an iron mantle bracket can be a unique alternative.

Shelf Brackets:

Decorative shelf brackets provide a wonderful alternative to drab, industrial, shelving units.  Shelves with decorative brackets can provide a unique display area in any room of your home.
