Edge profiles are often overlooked but they can really bring out the color and style of your kitchen. You can customize the edge profile on any surface material including granite and quartz countertops to match your desired aesthetic, whether it’s a clean and simple eased edge or an elegant ogee edge profile.
When it comes to designing your dream kitchen or bathroom, every detail matters. Countertop edges not only serve as a practical purpose but also contribute to the overall aesthetics of the space. In this blog, we will delve into the fascinating world of countertop edges, exploring various types and helping you make an informed choice that aligns with your style and functional preferences.
Countertop Edge Options
The eased edge countertop offers modern simplicity, offering a clean and simple profile that blends seamlessly in any kitchen or bathroom design. With its gently rounded top edge, it provides both aesthetic appeal and practicality, making it a family-friendly choice that requires minimal maintenance.
The mitered edge countertop creates a seamless and visually striking appearance for kitchen and bathroom surfaces. Instead of a standard square or rounded edge, mitered edges involve cutting the countertop material at a 45-degree angle, creating a diagonal joint at the corners. This technique is often used on thicker countertop materials like quartz, granite or marble, where the countertop surface and edge are made from a single piece or two pieces glued together. Mitered edges provide a sleek and modern look, eliminating the need for visible seams or edge joints.
The bevel-edge countertop features an angled edge at the corner. This edge profile will accentuate the border while keeping a simple yet elegant look. There are different variations of the beveled edge, like double bevel, where both corners are cut at an angle.
The Quarter Round countertop edge is a subtle yet distinctive choice, often described as the ‘gentle curve.’ Its rounded profile adds a touch of softness and sophistication to any kitchen or bathroom.
The bullnose edge countertop not only offers a visually pleasing and luxurious appearance but also ensures safety and comfort in your kitchen or bathroom. The absence of sharp edges makes it family-friendly, reducing the risk of accidents.
The cove countertop edge is a hidden gem in the world of edge profiles. It is characterized by an inward curve that makes a unique charm to your kitchen or bathroom design. This edge style offers a blend of contemporary flair and functional benefits. The gentle curve makes cleaning a breeze, as there are no sharp corners for dirt to collect.
The waterfall countertop edge is a dramatic and eye-catching option that has gained popularity in recent years. It extends the countertop material down the sides, creating a seamless effect. This style works exceptionally well with materials like quartz, and it can transform your countertop into a striking focal point.
This edge profile combines the graceful curves of the ogee edge with the smooth, rounded finish of the bullnose, resulting in a stunning and intricate design. The upper section features the S-shaped curves of the ogee, evoking a sense of luxury.
It features two gracefully flowing S-shaped curves, one on top of the other, creating a stunning visual effect that adds a touch of elegance to your kitchen or bathroom. Double ogee edge countertops beautifully complement materials like marble or granite, enhancing their natural beauty. While it exudes a sense of luxury, it’s also a practical choice, as the rounded edges are comfortable and safe, making it suitable for family-oriented spaces.
