Corbel Installation in Durham

Durham Cabinet Refacing with Corbels

If you want to elevate boring or flat cabinets or add attractive shelving elements, consider the traditional beauty that comes with installing corbels. Our cabinet refacing company in Durham will work with you to design and install the ideal cabinet features for your home, and, for many homeowners, this includes adding both decorative and functional corbels to wall cabinets, kitchen islands, shelving, and breakfast bars.

What Are Cabinet Corbels?

Corbels are supportive brackets that are carved or cut to be decorative as well as functional. These classic elements have been used for centuries as supports for roofs, walls, and shelving, cut or carved from stone. Their 90 degree angled protrusion gives them a beak-like shape, which is where the name ‘corbel’ as a derivative of ‘corvellus,’ the Old French word for ‘raven,’ comes from. Wooden corbels became popular in the Victorian Era, where they were incorporated into designs in cathedrals, libraries, and community buildings.

Today, they are more often used to refresh and revitalize features throughout the home than for structural integrity. While they were originally cut from stone, today’s corbels are made from stone, resin, metal, plaster, or wood. You’ll most often see them in doorway corners, under shelving or countertops, or under cabinets.

Choosing the Optimal Corbels for Your Home

Corbels offer near limitless design features, ranging from the intricately carved traditional styles with leaves, vines, and flowers to the clean cut of modern design.

Traditional Wood

Traditional wood corbels are typically machine-carved or hand-carved and can compliment rustic or traditional kitchens with the attractive details.

Mission Style

Also called Shaker Style, Mission style is characterized by vertical lines and recessed panels. While they date back to Spanish missions in California in the 1700s, today, they’re often incorporated into modern design.


Modern corbels are sleek and clean, with minimal detailing that are designed to highlight a more functional aesthetic.

Acanthus Leaf

Dating back to Ancient Greece, Acanthus Leaf is a very intricate, complex design that features vine and leaf carving. This is ideal for an elegant design aesthetic.


Simple, curved corbels are an excellent addition to both contemporary and traditional designs and will add a clean beauty to your space.
