Don't Leave the Edges to Chance


When picking out a natural stone countertop, shape is an important factor, particularly contributing to the kitchen’s functionality and flow. However, when it comes to the visual element, the edge that one selects for the countertop—also called its edge profile—can have a major impact on appearance as well. Just as the shape of the countertop comes in many styles, so too do the edges. It may seem like a trivial detail, but aside from affecting a countertop’s appearance, the shape of the edges can also affect the cost, the ease of cleaning, and the safety of the countertop.

Having to make decisions on each aspect of a kitchen’s design can certainly be time-consuming and sometimes frustrating, but attention to the finer details can have a major impact on a kitchen’s distinctive look and character. Selecting just the right countertop’s edge profile can make that kind of impression, so it’s important to work with a company that installs granite countertops in Roswell that has designers on staff who appreciate the kind of impact that an edge profile can make. Though the options can be numerous, given variations on customary edge profiles, there are some basic forms that are common.

Square Edge

Typically, this common edge is the standard thickness of 3 centimeters (1.25 inches) and is popular for its simple and classic-looking design. The edge is square—thus the name—and its thickness is the same as the rest of the countertop.

Waterfall Square Edge

The difference in this square edge countertop is that the edge of the counter top continues to run vertically the entire length down to the floor. It is often found when used with kitchen islands.

Mitered Edge

This is basically a variation on the square edge profile. However, the mitered edge itself is a bit thicker than the rest of the countertop and thus the entire countertop appears to be thicker than it is.

Eased Mitered Edge

Still a square edge variation, this version of the mitered edge has corners that are slightly rounded and thus gives the entire countertop a much softer appearance. A double eased mitered edge is rounded along both the top and bottom.

Bullnose Edge

A bullnose is a rounded edge profile. A demi-bullnose is rounded at the top but flat across the bottom. A full bullnose is rounded into a semi-circular shape so that there are no sharp angles and appears as one continuously smooth edge.

Beveled Edge

This is actually a square edge that has been cut along its top at around a 45-degree angle. Instead of the corner being rounded as in the mitered cut, it is shaved straight, which leaves two oblique angles rather than a square angle.

Ogee Edge

An ogee is a type of style that is shaped to look like an S-shaped curve. It is a traditional appearance that steeply slopes down as well as vertically near the edge’s top half. At its midpoint, the slopes become much less steep.

As you can tell, selecting just the right countertop’s edge profile can make a dramatic impression, so it’s important to work with contractors who install granite countertops in Roswell that have an appreciation for these various designs.
