Half Bullnose Edge
A half bullnose edge on a countertop is a type of edge profile that is characterized by a rounded edge that is half as deep as a full bullnose edge. The edge is rounded and smooth and can create a more elegant look to the countertop. This profile is created by using a specialized router bit or by hand-carving the edge.
A half bullnose edge is a popular option for countertops made of natural stone, such as granite or marble, and can also be used with other materials like engineered stone, quartz or solid surface countertops. The rounded edge not only adds an elegant and refined look but also can make the countertop more comfortable to use, as it eliminates sharp edges.
Additionally, it is also a functional edge profile, as it makes cleaning and wiping down spills, crumbs and other debris much easier. It also can help to prevent chipping and breaking of countertops, especially if it's used in heavily used areas like the kitchen.
