There are many decisions that surround your countertop, but today, we’ll focus on the countertop edge profiles. While these might seem like small details, they significantly impact the overall appearance of your countertop.
Let’s explore the countertop edges that have captured the interest of many of our customers. Perhaps these options will interest you too!
Striking a balance between round and square edges, the eased edge boasts a soft square shape. It’s visually appealing and safe, ensuring no discomfort if you accidentally bump into it.
The flat edge profile features a simple, straight, and squared-off design, offering a clean and minimalist look to the countertop. This edge is popular for contemporary and modern kitchen designs, providing a sleek and unobtrusive appearance.
The 1/2 bullnose edge profile is characterized by a rounded top edge that smoothly curves into the vertical surface of the countertop, creating a semi-circular shape. This design provides a soft and elegant touch, making it a safe and practical option, especially in households with children.
The 1/4 bevel edge profile features a slight bevel or chamfer on the top edge of the countertop, usually at a 45-degree angle. This subtle bevel adds a touch of sophistication to the countertop while maintaining a sleek and minimalist appearance.
The double bevel edge profile is similar to the 1/4 bevel, but it includes bevels on both the top and bottom edges of the countertop. This design adds an extra level of refinement and creates a more pronounced, eye-catching bevel effect.
For those seeking a softer, rounded edge, the bullnose profile is an excellent choice. You can opt for a full bullnose or a half bullnose, with the latter being safer for households with young children to prevent accidental bumps.
Adding an ogee edge to your countertop enhances the elegance of traditional kitchens. The top curve leads to a pedestal, while the bottom curve acts as the base, giving it a sophisticated touch.
The demi bullnose edge profile showcases a smooth, rounded top edge that curves into the vertical surface of the countertop, creating a half-circle shape. It offers a classic and timeless look, suitable for various kitchen styles, and is known for its comfortable feel and easy maintenance.
When selecting a countertop edge, it’s essential to have your countertop material chosen first, as it influences the edge profiles available to you.
For quartz countertops, you have the advantage of versatility, as most edge profiles complement quartz beautifully due to its sophisticated appearance.
For granite countertops, the eased, bullnose, bevel, and ogee edges are among the best options.
Additionally, consider your kitchen style as it can impact the edge’s overall look. Ogee edges tend to complement traditional kitchens, while the eased edge works well with various design styles.
At Cutstone Company, we take pride in crafting unique countertop edge profiles that cater to your individual preferences and needs. Our team is dedicated to helping you find the perfect edge profile that suits your countertop project.
