Thinking Outside the Gingerbread Box

Often when many think of decorative brackets, the images of gingerbread porches and fancy exteriors of the Old South come to mind. Architectural components or gingerbread brackets aren’t just for sprucing up porches, overhangs or gables anymore. Brackets (including vinyl brackets) have come a long way from the ornate and detailed designs of the past. They have evolved into large, over-sized structures with simple, clean lines that subtly add to the visual aesthetics of a building.

But, what about going way outside the box? Vinyl brackets and components don’t have to be used for exterior, traditional purposes only. Below are examples of what some of our more creative customers have done with our products (and more can be seen on Houzz.com and on our Pinterest boards– just search for Durabrac).
