Anyone have brackets/corbels under top cabinet ends?

domesticahMay 25, 2011

Hi there. We are in full swing on our kitchen, and I am thinking of putting brackets/corbels under the ends of my upper cabinets (sort of like shelf brackets)...I have been searching for a picture to show our carpenter, but cannot find any...does anyone have this feature and can share a photo?

This is another "white" kitchen, simple shaker cabs.

Thanks for your help. : )

I've seen this on two blogs (and probably elsewhere):

I notice all 3 pics of corbels on upper cabinets so far have beadboard. What's your backsplash?

The link below has some kitchens with longer sides, rather like corbels, but not quite. They also have tile backsplashes, so you can see a slightly different look.

Check out the kitchen in the movie Something's Gotta Give. Corbels on subway tile backsplash...I'm assuming it could be done IRL.

Thank you so much for coming to my rescue jessicaml, vickimp, nhbaskets and adh673. I love how you did the brackets under the counter in your kitchen nhbaskets and on your hutch adh673.
I am especially partial to painted kitchens so I love thet kitchens on cote de texas blog and somethings gotta give (hooked on houses is an awesome site!!!) It never seeks to amaze me how many thoughtful and generous people are on this site -- taking time to look for pictures and posting them. Thanks again for your help.

Thank you boxerpups! Wonderful pictures...

Jesscam1, my backsplash is a compromise with my husband (yes, he cares! : ( ) I wanted subway or marble, he wanted a diagonal wave tile (subway frame). It will be white, so hopefully it won't be a detractor. So I am wondering if the brackets should go all the way to the end of the cabinet...love the corbels in the kitchen with hammered copper hood above (very much like the somethings gotta give house). Thanks again all for the inspirational pics. : ) have a great night.--

Fori is not pleased

Mine hold up shelves:

Note: if you do this you'll lose a tiny bit of rear counterspace clearance unless you have deep cabinets (these are 30" lowers and 18" uppers). And if you do, tall people will not see them at all, unless there is seating nearby or they are viewed from the side. All in plain sight to me, but the spouse could see none of it. Hm. These were sized to fit a mug I broke right before the remodel finished. Hm!

Hi fori,love that shelf, great idea.

anyone know an online source for corbels? trying to find 11 x 11 ones...
Closest ones are this one

http://houseofantiquehardware.com/Wood-Shelf-Brackets/Large-Cherry-Shelf-Bracket

and this one http://www.vandykes.com/product/9-1-2-curved-bracket-corbel

(sorry for the pastes). I really wanted something with a outward curve...not that easy to find. : )
