Corbels for Beauty!

Posted by Misti On December 23rd

Metropolis Iron CorbelsIf you are a regular reader of our blog, you know we love to write about the functionality of corbels or countertop support brackets.  We constantly write about all the pro’s of using corbels; how they can extend the life of your countertop and how they add much needed support when a heavy material such as granite is used, but we rarely talk about the beauty of corbels.

Corbels add a much need aesthetic value to the underside of countertops.  Kitchens are a gathering place and one of the most used rooms in a home.  Since we spend so much time in our kitchens, we should be doing our best to create a cozy, warm atmosphere.  Corbels can create an added look of beauty and eye appeal and in an area that generally isn’t thought of being an area to decorate; under your countertops and overhangs.

Address Plaques that Withstand Harsh Winter Weather!

Posted by Misti On December 16th

DurableWeatherPlaque Winter seems to be upon the northern states a bit early this year with the majority of the country covered in snow and experiencing colder than average temperatures…and it’s not even technically “winter” yet!  The need for outdoor home décor that can withstand even the harshest weather is great.  Metropolis Iron’s line of outdoor address plaques, to be affixed to your home or placed in your yard, are made to stand the test of time in any climate.

Designed with weather in mind, address plaques from Metropolis Iron are fabricated from aluminum, which is durable, non-corrosive and able to withstand any climate.  Address plaques are important as they give homes an identity especially to emergency response vehicles and become particularly important during snowstorms as mailboxes with home numbers can become buried in snow.
