Why Use a Corbel?

Sometimes designers are intimidated by large corbels and tend to undersize them. A larger corbel will bring attention to an island. In the kitchen, a corbel serves a real function, it holds up a counter top overhang, but at the same time, it makes a statement of style and importance. The right size is based on the designers’ message. If the kitchen’s message is “harmony,” the designer can choose a more common size corbel, around 10” to 15.” On the other hand, if the designer wants a 9’ island to say, “Look at me!” and make a grand statement, then an 18” to 30” corbel will accomplish that goal. Metropolis Iron’s full line of corbels differs in sizes for all design options. If your design includes larger corbels, just ask! We love custom orders!
