countertop corners (by J [FL]) Posted on: Sep 10, 2021 8:11 AM

As I posted before, I am building a new countertop with plywood and laminate.

I've seen where some will make a diagonal cut across the corners of the top so that they are not 90 degrees anymore.

Is this necessary? What does it do, add stability in case someone puts something heavy near the corner?

I have another rental where the corners are 90 degrees (someone else built it before I bought the house) and there has been no problem with damage at the edges.

It's just cosmetic. Some people like one thing, some another.

I'd just go with the square corners. --24.180.xx.xx

One observation I might make is not to do bull nose. It will save your floor to have a straight edge. I have bull nose here in what was my mother's kitchen and I can't count the number of times something went off the edge onto the floor. I cover the counter top with paper towel when I cook so it's not always easy to see where the edge is so it's kind of my fault. But sometimes the bull nose makes a mess all by itself. I do not know the reason for bull nose but I would say skip that. --108.24.xx.xx

J, check out countertop edging on Loweís website. You will then have a better understanding of how they are attached. --149.76.xxx.xxx

When I make a laminate kitchen counter top, if the corner is going to be exposed to heavy traffic, I will round the corner. Not square, not diagonal but rounded. --47.155.xx.xxx
