What is a bullnose worktop? Bullnose worktops explained
When we think of the edge of a worktop most of us picture a worktop with a traditional single rounded edge at the top called a single round. However, it’s possible to get worktops with all sorts of edges, including a bullnose worktop.
Bullnose worktops are favoured for their curved edges and simple aesthetic whilst more complex designs such as a single ovolo or single Spanish offer a more complicated finish. As contemporary buyers continue to favour softer, more curvaceous and minimal designs bullnose worktops have become increasingly popular.
From full bullnose worktops to half bullnose worktops and ogee worktops, read on to find out all you need to know about bullnose worktops.
Bullnose worktops explained
What is a bullnose worktop?
Bullnose worktops have rounded edges at both the top and bottom. These edges are both safe and stylish providing a clean, fluid finish which fuses perfectly with the sleek design of a contemporary kitchen. Whether you have handleless cabinets, rounded surfaces or a beautiful, smooth quartz worktop, a bullnose edge will complement the look seamlessly.
Unlike a single or double round, a bullnose edge has a slimline curve that’s more oval shaped than round creating a more mathematically accurate, continuous arch. The curved edge has a smoother incline stretching around 2.5cm at its widest for a more modern look.
A half bullnose or a waterfall edge is a slight variation on a bullnose edge, ending with a flat bottom so the curve is only at the top.
Bullnose worktops were first used to complement the edges of curved cabinets however today our love for sleek, minimal aesthetics make bullnose edges a top choice for lots of homeowners.
Indeed, the curvaceous edges of a bullnose worktop have numerous practical benefits for the modern home. For example, bullnose worktops are safe for all members of the family and extremely long lasting because their edges are positioned out of harm’s way.
What is an ogee bullnose (or full bullnose) worktop?
An ogee bullnose or full bullnose worktop is an intricate design featuring three layers of rounded edges which flow fluidly into each other with a width that increases with each layer. The ripple effect created by the three layers is similar to an s laid on its side.
The final edge on an ogee worktop is a full bullnose edge that’s rounded at both top and bottom. The overall look is one of luxe and opulence, reminiscent of the stacked layers on Ancient Greek columns
What is an ogee half bullnose worktop?
An ogee half bullnose worktop has the three layers of an ogee worktop but the final worktop edge is only rounded at the top so the bottom is flat, giving the worktop a slick, stylish look. If you want a worktop with a finish that’s really special, a full or half ogee worktop is ideal.

What must I have on site when you arrive to do the templating?
Before the survey you need to ensure all cabinets are level, have sufficient braces and are secure firmly to the wall. Make sure you know the final location of the sinks, hobs, taps and any other fittings required with your bullnose countertops and have these available on site. Please ensure after the survey cabinets are not moved as the measurements taken during the survey are crucial for a perfect worktop installation. Any changes after the survey will cause significant delays and incur extra charges.
Can we plaster the walls after you have templated?
No, this needs to be done before the templating. Tiling should be done after the bullnose worktops are installed.
