Luxury Stones for your Kitchen, Bath & Home
Selecting your edge profile for your new countertops is one of the ways to add to the style of your remodel project.
Countertop edges add a wonderful dimension to stone tops and amplify their natural beauty. Costs per linear foot depends upon which countertop edging profile you select.
Eased Edge – This edge treatment for your counter is one of the more common edges and offers a clean and simple look for your granite countertops. This edge is used on most granite backsplashes.
The eased edge offers a square flat face with a slightly rounded edge. A quarter round granite edge has a more rounded edge on the top.
It offers a softened and simplistic look to any countertop. This edge is one of the more economical edges so it seems to be a more popular choice for those on a budget.
Half Bullnose – The half bullnose edge can also be called the roundover because instead of being squared off, it is rounded over.
It offers a smooth and round surface. It can show a larger cross section of your stone. This edge is usually the least expensive treatment that gives you some rounding.
The half bullnose edge can also be called the round-over because instead of being squared off, it is rounded over. It offers a smooth and round surface. It shows a larger cross section of your stone.
Full Bullnose – The full bullnose profile is by far one of the more contemporary looks for a granite countertop. Most traditional and country style kitchens will find this type of edge to be a perfect match.
A side view of full bullnose shows the shape of a half circle. This edge is perfect for families that have children and concerned about little ones bumping into robust edges.
A drawback of the full bullnose edge profile is that spillage from liquids may run down the side of the cabinet. Just something to keep that in mind if you have frequent liquid spillages.
¼ inch Bevel Top – Bevels are cut at 45 degree into the edge of the stone. The deeper the cut, the wider the bevel face is. A bevel edge may chip more than a rounded edge if the stone has a tendency to chip.
¼ inch Radius – This profile edge is somewhere in between the eased edge and half bullnose. Simple and elegant
Cove- This profile edge has a slight ¼ inch channel grove in the top corner. This is typical in what you may see on dining room table edge. This would be an excellent look for an island countertop.
Ogee – An ogee profile edge takes the shape of an “S” when viewed from the side. This is often the most elaborate edge treatment offered by granite fabricators.
This edge offers a classic, decorative look that is perfect for a traditional kitchen. You can tailor the curve to be deep and dramatic or can have a more subtle line..
Double Ogee- This profile edge is the same as an ogee, but has a double “S” elegant look.
Dupont – Sometimes called “Bird’s Beak”, the Dupont edge looks like a demi bullnose with a notch at the top. On certain stones it may have more of a tendency to chip.
Real craftsman can create an unlimited array of edges by gluing together different profiles. These profile edges can make a granite countertop appear very thick throughout. Of all the granite countertops edges, this is by far the most expensive.
Half Round- This laminated profile edge has a smooth, rounded finish. The edge is very comfortable edge to work up against. This is a perfect edge for young children as the edge is not sharp.
Bullnose- This laminated profile edge has rounded shape. The edge has half circle shape if seen from the side
Flat Polished – This profile edge is a very simple, elegantly refined look. The edge is flat with the upper and lower part having a small highly polished arris.
Bevel Laminated Edge- This laminated profile edge has a ¼ inched beveled edge.
Ogee Bullnose – This profile edge has the elegant look of an ogee curved edge, but the smooth curve of a bullnose. Perfect choice for families who want the elegant look but have rounded edges.
Roman Ogee – The standard Roman Ogee is a popular edge profile. The elegant curves add a charming detail to your countertops.
Double Ogee – This laminated profile edge is the same as an ogee, but has a double “S” elegant look.
Mitered (waterfall) – Waterfall Edge
A rounded, waterfall edge creates a sleek, clean look which is perfect for a modern style kitchen. The edge is half round on the top and gives the appearance of no edge at all – the granite seems to just dip over the countertop and run down all the way to the floor. There’s no actual starting or stopping point. A waterfall edge creates a beautiful focal point in the room, showcasing the stone as a piece of art.
In addition to its incredible aesthetic impact, the waterfall countertop edge is safer than most other granite edge types as there are no sharp corners that may cause an injury. It is, therefore, one of the best options for families with young children.
