Counter top edging

Posted by Krista Atkins Nutter at May 04. 2006
Looking for ideas on a counter top edging that's clean and durable. I'm using a combination of counter top materials in my kitchen - soapstone slabs, soapstone tiles, and butcher block. The small areas where I'm using soapstone tile on the counter will need an edging, but it's adjacent to the butcher block, so I don't want to use a wood edge for fear that it won't coordinate well with the BB. The soapstone tiles don't come in a bullnose or other profile, so I'm wondering if my only option is a prefab edging from a major home improvement warehouse? Any ideas for a clean, modern look would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You could attach stainless or aluminum angle to the slabs from the underside, so you only see a metal edge. Aluminum angle is fairly cheap, and can be found at most hardware stores.
