Overhang Support

When extending your peninsula or island 12 - 15" past cabinet support, it will be necessary to support the overhang with brackets.

Side view of a Corbel support

Corbels or brackets, usually made of wood or metal, need to be half as long as the overhang. Shown here is a wooden corbel.

Angled front view of Corbel support

Corbels or brackets should be placed on a bracket plate and spaced 24" apart to evenly distribute weight.

Overhangs that exceed 15" require support to the floor.
