SUMMARY

One interesting thing to consider is that your countertop may not require support and this can be advised by your countertop expert. This depends on the amount of unsupported span and the substrate or material of countertop you choose. More importantly, decorative bar supports can dress up your design and complete the look you are trying to achieve.
