Last month I listed some criteria for
choosing a countertop backsplash. But
the job isn't done until you've chosen an
edge detail. You can put any backsplash
on nearly any countertop, but the countertop
material plays a greater role in the
selection of an edge detail than it does
in the selection of a backsplash. Some
edgings work well with certain materials
and not so well with others.
Slab countertops made from cultured
(synthetic) marble or solid-surfacing
materials can be tooled easily to form a
variety of edge profiles (see Figure 1).
You can get everything from standard
bullnose to custom metal or wood inlays.
One local company I work with will fabricate
any custom detail
