As you remodel or renovate your Triangle area kitchen or bathroom, one decision you’ll be faced with is the right “edge profile” for your countertops. There are quite a number of variations to pick from and it’s not always clear to novice eyes what sets them apart. Much of it comes down to style, but there are also practical reasons to pick one over another.
Why pick a demi-bullnose edge profile?
One profile that causes some initial confusion with customers is the demi-bullnose edge. It’s not confusing because of any complicated design, but it has terminology that most probably aren’t familiar with. Bullnose profiles are a family of designs that add rounded corners to the edges of the counter. A half bullnose rounds only the top corner, while the full bullnose rounds both the top and bottom.
A demi bullnose is a variation on the half bullnose because it leaves the bottom corner flat and only rounds the top. The reason it is differentiated from the normal half bullnose profile is that it is given an oblong taper that adds a little extra style to the curve. People choose the demi-bullnose edge profile to have a unique, modern but sophisticated look that catches people’s attention. It is also a safe option since the shaper edge is rounded off entirely, making it less likely to bump heads and also less likely to be chipped.
