If you're considering adding natural stone to your home or business, you may have heard of the term "bullnose edge." But what exactly is a bullnose edge and why is it important in stone design? A bullnose edge is a type of edge treatment for natural stone that creates a smooth, rounded finish.
At Stone Center, a premier natural stone supplier located in Columbus and Cincinnati, we offer a wide variety of bullnose edge options for our customers, including bullnose edge tiles for easy installation. Here's what you should know about bullnose edges.
There are several types of bullnose edges that you can consider for your natural stone design project. Each edge style creates a different look and has unique benefits.
The full bullnose edges feature a complete, rounded edge that creates a smooth and seamless finish. This type is often used on a countertop edge and table, as well as stairs and other applications where sharp edges could be hazardous.
A half bullnose has a rounded top and a flat bottom, which provides a clean and modern look. It's a popular choice for backsplashes and wall caps.
The demi bullnose edge is a subtler version of the half bullnose with a more gradual curve. This type of edge is ideal for creating a soft and gentle look on countertop edges and tiles.
The ogee edge has a more decorative look with a concave top and a convex bottom. Many of our clients use it for fireplace surrounds and other decorative elements.
Finally, the double bullnose edge has a rounded top and bottom, providing a fully curved finish. This type of edge is popular for pool coping and other outdoor applications. At Stone Center, we offer a wide variety of bullnose tile edge options to choose from so you can find the perfect one for your project.
