The Triangle area is experiencing a boom in population, and that means there are many people building new housing and renovating old ones. As they turn to the most important rooms in the house (kitchens and bathrooms), decisions have to be made on what kind of countertop edge profile to choose.
The edge profile is the shape of the edge of the countertops. Some leave it at the original 90-degree angle, also called an eased edge, while others adjust the edge with bevels and rounding. Rounding the edge is called a bullnose. A half bullnose only rounds the top edge, and a full bullnose rounds both the top and bottom edges of the counter.
Why choose a full bullnose edge profile for your counters
When considering all the options for an edge profile, it is difficult to know which to choose. Generally, the half bullnose is seen as a way of adding a soft, welcoming touch to a kitchen or bath by smoothing away the harsh edges. This is done for stylistic reasons to encourage a more modern, sophisticated look.
Safety is another reason to opt for the full bullnose profile. When both edges are smoothed, a head going down or coming back up can hit a sharp angle. It is also good for the safety of the countertop since there is not as much opportunity for the edge to chip as the kitchen or bathroom sees heavy traffic and use.
