Ceramic slabs normally used for kitchen tops have a variable thickness between 12 and 20 mm.
When one needs the view effect of a thicker top or one is willing to show the top side, then it is possible to replicate the side.
📐 The process foresees a 46° cut, gluing, and grinding with the addition of a wood lintel or composite material.
📐 The minimum height of the reposition edge cannot be inferior to 20 mm.
📐A further variation of the top with a repositioned edge is the one where the edge goes also under the kitchen top. This is the typical case of kitchen tops jutting from the cabinets – so they need to be clad on the lower part as well – or kitchen islands or peninsulas.
If the kitchen top has a repositioned edge, the rubber hammer cannot be used to push it. All operations must be carried out with bare hands.
