Although home accents are not the main visual pieces of your home, you can do a lot with them in such subtle, yet, powerful ways. Oftentimes, they’re not the first thing your guests will notice when they enter your home, but they do add something special that you can’t quite put your finger on.


When adding accents to your home design, corbels and brackets are two elements you’ll want to consider. Both corbels and brackets are multi-purposed; they are load-bearing and decorative elements. If you’re looking for ways to add structural support and decorative touches at the same time, then these are perfect for you.


Between shelves, gazebos, pergolas, porches, countertops, doors, and doorways, your home will not be the same without them. Instead of having rigid and empty corners and angles, corbels and brackets will fill the small spaces, softening the corners of your home interior and exterior. When used for shelving, corbels and brackets can transform an empty wall. In this way, they provide extra storage space and a designated place to display decorative items.


You could say corbels and brackets belong to the same family of home accents. However, there are some differences between the two. Brackets tend to be thin and hollowed out, as compared to corbels. Corbels have a thicker, fuller shape than brackets. The depth and width of corbels tend to be evenly balanced. On the other hand, brackets can be up to four times as wide as they are deep.


Another aspect to consider is the material used to make the corbels or brackets. At CJ’s Hearth And Home, we carry metal, PVC, and wood options.


Metal Brackets

Metal brackets are mostly for interior use, but they can come in handy for outdoor uses, too. They can be an elegant alternative to plain metal or plastic. They’re especially great for adding heavy-duty support to shelves, cabinetry, and countertops. You can use them to add a decorative touch to the underside of a floating shelf or kitchen island.


PVC Brackets & Corbels

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), also known as vinyl, is a popular type of plastic used in various home materials. PVC is a good choice because of its durability, water resistance, and easy maintenance. On top of that, PVC tends to be budget-friendly. PVC corbels are often installed below the roofline, adding structural support to the roofing. PVC brackets and corbels also have interior uses, providing support for overhanging countertops, floating shelves, kitchen bars, or kitchen islands.


Wooden Corbels

Besides metal and PVC, there are also hardwood options that come in different shapes and styles. With wooden corbels, you can easily decorate the corners of doorways. As opposed to wood corbels that are already finished with paint or stain, there are also unfinished options that are sanded and ready for you to stain or paint to your liking. We carry both vintage and rustic options; be sure to choose the style that fits the rest of your room decor.


There are some factors to look out for when selecting the right corbels and brackets. You’ll need the right wood for finishing with a stain or paint; choose a style that doesn’t distract from the rest of the room design. Pay attention to the weight capacity; make sure it’s strong enough to hold the weight of the shelf or countertop being paired with it. Additionally, if you know which shelf you want to pair with it, make sure it’s big enough to hold the depth of the shelf.
