With New Countertops Materials Available, Metropolis Iron Expands Line of Corbels


Travertine, a natural stone, is the newest trend in kitchen designs, but with a heavier, bulkier material, studier corbels are needed. Metropolis Iron’s expanded line of corbels will support even the heaviest countertop projects!

It seems like every month design magazines are touting the latest and greatest in kitchen countertop materials and each month the materials get heavier and bulkier. The latest trend in kitchen countertops is travertine. Travertine, similar to marble and granite is a naturally beautiful stone that is formed over years of accumulation of minerals under intense pressure & heat. This natural mineral is made when minerals dissolved under water leave behind sediments on the outskirts of beaches. Because travertine is a natural stone, there is a large variety of designs, colors and shades in which it is formed that include walnut, cream, gold, beige and ivory. Most of the colors and designs are formed naturally over time by the mixing of impurities and iron components.

As with any stone countertop, extra support should be considered when installing a travertine countertop. Using a countertop support bracket or corbel from MetropolisIron.net will provide the support needed by a travertine countertop and add an extra decorative touch to your kitchen. With the emerging need for stronger supporting corbels, Metropolis Iron has recently expanded their line of countertop support brackets.

Metropolis Iron Owner, Misti St. Pierre, feels the newly expanded line, “First and foremost adds safety to the countertop installation. It would be devastating to have a young child hang on the edge of an improperly supported countertop only to have it pull loose and possible cause injury. It secondly protects the expensive investment made with the installation of travertine tops”
