Traditionally, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is where people congregate, and in many cases, it is connected to the dining room, the breakfast nook, the garage and/or the living room. The kitchen should reflect the wants and the needs of the owners. When the layout perfectly caters to your specifications, it is great to have the kitchen with the right architectural elements, so it doesn’t look like just anybody’s kitchen.
When choosing the architectural elements, you should decide on the focal point of the kitchen. The kitchen island is usually the gathering place in most kitchens due to its size and the fact that it is conveniently placed in the center of the kitchen space.
One thing to remember is that while the kitchen is an entirely different part in your home, it is still part of your home and should not clash with the overall decor. There are a lot of different kitchen styles, but it is easier to decide upon the kitchen design if the kitchen is separate from the rest of the house, which in most cases it is not; you must think of ways to tie the kitchen in with the rest of your home almost seamlessly.
The kitchen designs and styles have evolved through the years; the kitchen decor in your house should too. Corbels are a great way to bring some style and architectural structure to your kitchen. The best part about the corbels is that they come in a wide variety of different styles which can be incorporated in the existing style of your whole house.
Corbels can also be worked into the rest of your home decor to reiterate a theme. You may also be able to achieve that look by using some of our other wood products, such as quality carvings and wood rosettes to fill in the gaps and add personality to the kitchen cabinets and other built-in furniture in your home. There are styles that work better with a more understated and straightforward kind of designs and more embellished corbels with more elaborate designs. You can stain them to match the wood of your dining room table and other wood products in your kitchen and any adjacent rooms.
Corbels adorned with grape, acanthus leaf, and floral design will look fantastic in a traditional kitchen as well as in a cottage style kitchen.Corbels with the carved grape design are very popular for installation on the cabinets of Tuscan-style kitchen. The Tuscan kitchen designs use vibrant colors in the palette of gold and rich earth tones. Stone and rock are commonly used to create a more rustic feel in the kitchen. The kitchen lighting tends to be softer than the lighting in other rooms of the house. It is also essential to find some antique accessories for the Tuscan style kitchen.
Our corbels can be finished in whatever way you would like them to be, so making them look antiqued is a snap. Corbels with the floral design are often used on French-provincial style cabinetry and custom furniture. French provincial kitchen style is ruled by symmetry and balance. The color palette has a great variety of colors; most of those colors are muted by black and grays. The style tends to use a lot of natural materials in it; so sticking close to the look of the wood (even if it is stained) would help pull the look together.
Each one of our gorgeous hardwood corbels is unique, and each serves a different purpose aside from the difference in the designs. Some corbels are more durable and robust in the design to be used for support of kitchen countertops, while others corbels are more for decorative appeal. Some of the corbels models are made with both specifications. The large sizes of the grape and floral corbels make them perfect for Kitchen Island application. Large corbels add a significant aesthetic impact as well as reliable support for a counter.
