Granite Tile Countertop Edge Ideas

by Martin Giff

QUESTION:

I am planning to install 12-inch black granite tiles on my kitchen countertop and am wondering what to do about the edging. If I use a wood trim, how do I finish it? I would love it to be black also... maybe lacquer?


ANSWER:

Well, I'm not a professional wood worker, but any type of lacquer or varnish will need fairly regular maintenance and re-application. So, I wouldn't do that.

I'd just use an oil-base solid stain rated for outdoor use. Stain the wood before attaching to the counter. But again, check with a pro experienced in finishing wood.

Of course, you could cut the tiles to make an edge or buy pre-formed edge tiles.
