The post popular type of worktop or countertop edgings are those made from laminate material in the factory and come with both the front worktops edge and the backsplash all in one piece with the worktop. In other words there are no joined worktop and backsplash edge seams. The reason for the all in one made laminate worktop and edging is the ease of cleaning plus the rounded edging is very appealing to the eye. Some edgings on kitchen worktops that are not made and folded but joind at the edge actually peel off if poorly joined. An added plus to the rounded edgings made from one piece of worktop laminate is its imitation of granite.
Granite worktops are usually more expensive than laminate although granite and some more expensive laminates may be the same in price. A granite edging can have the rugged look of stone cut in the quarry which the one piece with the worktop laminate worktop seeks to imitate. Since concern for worktops is in appearance and comfort to the body as it works up close to the worktop, there are edgings that feel more comfortable than other edgings or have a more polished appearance.
Finding the type of edging that suits your budget as well as your tastes and personal comfort if you are a person who spends a lot of time in the kitchen sometimes means shopping around and visiting a few showrooms at local kitchen distributors or carpenters. Worktop edgings are like the hemlines of countertops or of worktops. Depending on the size of your worktop, the edging can flow as a seamless finish to your worktop or can be deliberately enhanced to add distinctive features to your overall kitchen design just like a hemline. So, whether your worktop material is from one of the hundreds of patterns and colors or from the exotic corian or one of the fashionable granites, its edging is the added touch of style and elegance to your kithen design.
A worktop edging that feels comfortable when pressed upon while working on it is, of course, preferable to one that feels uncomfortable and can actually leave an indentation on your arms. But, like in hems, it is nice to know that you have many different edges to choose from and should make a point to discuss your options with your kithchen installer.
