Terms of the Trade: What Is a Bullnose Corner?

Lead Image

Bullnose corners are essentially rounded corners on the edges of walls and other surfaces in construction. As seen in the photo, they are commonly found in adobe-type structures, but have made their way into contemporary design as part of new construction homes. They give a finished look, and are easy for any DIYer working with drywall to achieve. Just use a rounded corner bead applied the same way as drywall tape, making sure the drywall sheets are cut short on the edges so they don't overlap.
