linoleum counters

A smooth radius on a kitchen counter in the home of one of my clients. This counter is covered with laminate, not linoleum, but you can get the same basic look (at least where the corner’s concerned) with linoleum. (Please note: The cabinet visible here is original to the 1940s house. My clients hired me to tune up the original cabinets, add a few new ones that would match them, and install retro counters.)

This is the third and last post in a series about making linoleum counters and table tops.

Let’s talk about corners.

I find corners, whether square or rounded, the most challenging part of making a linoleum topped counter or table. When you’re working with metal edging, measurements have to be ultra-precise, and bending the material can be a challenge. Here are some tips.

Square corners are sharp — never more so than when metal edging is involved. If you have small children or are making a top for a confined space, sharp edges may be inadvisable.
