An elevated countertop brings a countertop to a new level of majestic appeal. Today, Im focusing on how to install an elevated design that is considered fine hardware and can enhance the finest of kitchens. Federal Brace cannot make any recommendations on specific applications, because every application is different. But they can give some general information on particular styles of countertops, which I will do in this blog.
The first thing to do before ordering the brackets is to see how many you will need. Federal Brace recommends that you use a bracket at least every 18 to 24 inches on an elevated counter application. You will need to make sure that the bracket you select works with your sub-counter arrangement.
Now that you have your support in hand you will want to set to mounting the bracket using the mounting plate at the base of the support. You can set the height of your elevated counter by moving the mounting position down from the bottom of the sub- countertop. The supports gusset will extend out and over the sub-counter.
