Our countertop installers installed this very easily and successfully on our new laminate countertops. If you have any install advice on countertops that would be great!
Do you have any posts on how to prep the cabinets once you’ve lined them all up where they are supposed to be?
They all seem to fit – but then my husband saw them and said how on earth do you attach them to each other and attach a counter to them?
Backsplashes and Edging Options by hometips.com
The finishing touches to a countertop-a backsplash and edgings-perfectly complete the style statement.
Natural materials such as wood, stone, and ceramic tile have separate backsplashes. Wood edging can be shaped to match architectural details in your decorating scheme. They are often made from the same materials as the countertop itself, though they may include colored or patterned accents. Plastic laminate and solid-surface countertops often have backsplashes included, creating a seamless look. Often, the countertop’s edging is used in the backsplash to create a uniform appearance.

Most styles are about an inch deep or a little longer; make sure the style you choose won’t block drawers or cabinet doors. Square edges cost less, but they are generally easier to chip, and their sharp corners are painful to bump into. Plastic laminate and tile countertops can be banded with stainless steel or wood, but be sure that wood is firmly attached to tile with epoxy grout to prevent debris from collecting between the two materials.
How To Finish Exposed Edges On Granite Tile Countertops by homeguides.sfgate.com
Countertops are also typically much thicker than a single tile, which means the front edge of the counter must also be finished as well. By installing this tile slightly over the edge of the counter, you can place a vertical cut piece on the front of the counter; the bullnosed edge will cover the top of this piece, finishing the entire edge at once. The bullnose blade is a rounded blade that will grind off the edge of the tile. Glue the edge down first using wood glue, then sink finish nails into it to help secure it in place. Choose a decorative molding that picks up one of the colors in the granite or in the backsplash tile to coordinate it. Secure a 2-inch-wide board below the edge with clamps to help hold the heavy decorative railing in place while the thinset dries for 48 hours. The visible portion of the strip will curve out from under the granite and down over the front of the counter.
Choose a finish that is already present in the kitchen for the most cohesive look. Granite tiles do not come with a finished or polished edge, which can leave a rough area on the edge of the counter. A bullnosed edge is a slightly rounded, finished edge that gently curves downward. Bullnose the granite tile right on site with a tile wet saw fitted with a bullnose blade. Just push the edge of the granite into the blade several times to achieve the bullnose edge. Select a molding that is at least as wide as the counter is thick, taking into consideration the thickness of the granite. Stain the edge the same color as the cabinets to help blend it in with the rest of the kitchen. Use thinset mortar to secure the moldings to the front edge of the counter, covering the unfinished edge of the granite tiles and the counter’s front. Part of the metal strip will install below the front granite tile laid on the counter.
Metal Countertop Edging by bobvila.com
They have all different sizes of metal banding for countertops.
I think it said it’s got holes in it and they’ll only do custom (non holed) with a minimum of 2400 sq ft. Their web site is really nice and has a lot of cool retro items. I believe they have the inside piece that you are talking about.
