To really take your kitchen to the next level, we are now offering an extensive line of corbels. These beautifully carved elements truly bring your personal style to the room by adding that extra touch of architectural detailing. With more than 100 hundred corbel options that can be stained to match any of our RTA cabinet sets, you’re sure to find the size and style to fit your dream kitchen.
Corbels have been used in architecture for centuries. Originally, their purpose was to help bear the weight of a wall, ceiling, balcony or other heavy structure. Today, corbels don’t necessarily have to hold a weight load; they can just be used to enhance your interior design scheme. Our extensive line includes a wide range of styles and sizes that will nicely complement any of our RTA cabinets.
Corbels can easily slide into your kitchen design. Considering that our RTA cabinets are built for stability and durability, your corbels probably won’t actually be holding something up, but the trick to seamlessly incorporating them into your design is to make it seem as if they are. Here are some ideas for adding them into your kitchen décor:
• Attach corbels on the underside of island countertops. Your island is probably one of the most used surfaces in the kitchen and some added detail can really turn it into a stunning piece for the room.
• Use on corners and edges beneath wall cabinets to really tie all the cabinetry in a room together.
• Corbels are fantastic elements for placing around kitchen range hoods to create a lovely focal point.
• If you have an open floor plan, consider using the same or similar corbels in the living and dining areas to tie the design schemes together. They are perfect add-ons to mantels or shelves.
We have unfinished wood corbels available to match any design style. Whether you prefer traditional, arts and crafts or even modern décor, we have you covered. For example, if you have a very formal, elegant kitchen, look for intricate and detailed carvings like those on our Acanthus or Grape Wood corbels. For sleeker, minimalistic looks try those in our Mission or Traditional lines.
Our corbels, just like all our unfinished accessories, are constructed of solid wood so you get the durability and stability you have come to expect from RTA Cabinet Store. They are available in a variety of different wood species, including cherry, alder, and maple, but since they are unfinished you can easily stain them to match any of our cabinet lines. Don’t forget to order a pint of stain with your order.
It’s those added details that truly make your kitchen your own, and corbels are perfect for accomplishing this. With our budget-friendly line that includes options for every cabinet and décor style, corbels can easily take your kitchen from ordinary to extraordinary.
