About polyurethane corbels
You can avoid spending a lot of money on wood corbels to give you the custom look on the inside and outside of your house because you can now have the same benefits from polyurethane corbels. You can install them and have the same effect, being worried only about cleaning and maybe painting them.
The architectural features that the corbels can be use for are for porch posts and railings, for a decorative touch or to support posts or overhangs.
You can use polyurethane corbels on the inside as well. You can use them for creating focal points, to support shelves or for design. This is a great alternative from hiring a carpenter to do all this in a house. The result is still the same. You can apply any paint you want on them and you can also ask for any architectural style you desire.
