Corbels in the kitchen and a winner


What in the world is a corbel! Well if you didnt know by its fancy name Im sure you recognize it. It's a fancy piece of architecture that looks as though its holding up a beam or your cabinet. That's my definition on it anyway. If you remember back when I gave my kitchen a makeover on a budget I added these two at the end of my cabinet.


Dont let them fool you by their fanciness. They are not real wood. They are light and easy to work with. Im not sure what they are made out of but it's like a stucco material.

Here are a few different designs that would make a great addition to your kitchen. I love the sleekness of this black one.

So many to pick from..


You cant have just one

Look at the length on this sweetheart!

Now that I have your heads full of corbels and dreams... Look whats floating around in my head at the momment.

Im so wanting these..

Wouldn't my new dishwasher look so fresh with some added trim..

Yes, that is black paint that dripped on my fresh painted cabinets. Showroom ready?..NOT! We live in this kitchen. I paint in this kitchen. Oh yeah. Want to know the winner of that sign? Is there a Rambling Girl in the house!

  4. Wonderful corbels, Susie!

    You should have heard me trying to explain corbels to the cabinet maker and trim guy, when we built the house. I got out a catalog and a couple of photos and then they understood corbels. Oh,(lightbulb moment) they said....brackets. I'm still trying to figure out how to do corbels under the range hood cover. You've inspired me to keep trying!

  8. HI! Just to let you know...there are decorative corbels and purpose corbels. The decorative ones are just that..pretty, the purpose corbels help hold up counter tops. Our guys cannot add a piece of granite to an island if the over hang requires corbels until the corbels are installed. These are usually the kind of islands you eat at...and since granite is so heavy we see a lot of corbels, wood and iron are the most common. Okay...I've talked your ear off...Just wanted to share!
    I love your blog!!! God Bless you!!

  13. I was HOPING to NEED corbels when they put in my granite, but they said I didn't NEED them, so engineer dude(dh) didn't want them! I loved them, so in time maybe I will add some somewhere! I love them!

  22. I really like all the corbels but I LOVE your kitchen cabinets. Could you tell me what color paint & glaze you used? I wanted to do mine a cream w/a taupe glaze but didn't know how that would look with my white appliances & trim. Your colors are the perfect solution. You did a great job!
    Congrats to Rambling girl...you lucky thang!!

  28. Hi Susie,
    Thanks so much for your sweet comment! I did check the highlighted posts and you did have the paint can & glaze bottle pictures on there . After I clicked them I could read the names. I thought the paint might have been a custom color - this is even easier. Thanks so much for your help!

  36. Corbels are definitely a great accessory to any home renovation. They add character and charm to any area. It's really a way to dress-up and room in your home.

    Some really great pictures.

  37. I added some of those under my bar a few years ago and just love the way they look. Maybe I'll do a post on them sometime too. Love the post about your son! I have a 7 month old. So, I will someday know what you're talking about!
