Many customers are interested in overhangs for their islands, etc., but are not always sure if there will be enough support provided by their cabinets. We often hear, “How much of an overhang can my island have?” While there is no standard answer to that question, we do not recommend an overhang larger than 12″ without some sort of additional support, in most circumstances. At PGC, we recommend an invisible support bracket be used, which we sell and would install.

There are also other types of brackets, or corbels that also be used. Keep in mind that there can be limitations on overhang sizes based on the room size, cabinetry, etc. If you have questions in regards to overhangs, please make sure you give us a call, or stop by our showroom.
