metal edge 300x225

A metal edge treatment adds an authentic retro flair to laminate countertops and tables.   A few good resources for metal edging include:

Also, a great blog for researching retro resources is Retro Renovation.  Pam Kueber wrote informative posts back in February and May about where to buy metal edging.

Does your laminate countertop have an edge?


I am really trying to fight the granite conspiracy. we are planning an offwhite shaker kitchen and I think black formica with a metal border would look fabulous. What I can't seem to find is an example of a 1-in brushed aluminum or stainless edge that does not have channels. Can anybody help? ALSO, need a fabricator in Westchester, NY THANKS
