You’ve picked out your countertop material, but one of the finishing touches to your countertops is the Profile Edge. What is a profile edge, you might ask? A profile edge on a countertop is the part of the countertop that overhangs above your base cabinets or island.
In this blog we will explain the edge profiles we offer, but if you do not see one you are interested in, please contact us.
Eased Edge (Straight Edge or Quarter Round)
The first edge profile is the *Eased Edge (Straight Edge or Quarter Round), this edge has a 90 degree edge that is slightly rounded. It’s the most common type of edge you’ll find in kitchens and bathrooms because of its clean, simple and modern look. The only difference between the Straight Edge and the Quarter Round Edge are the corner or radiuses.
*This edge is what is included in all estimates. All other edge profiles can be priced out upon request.
Full Bullnose Edge
A Full Bullnose Edge has a round top and bottom edge giving the appearance of a narrower or thinner countertop.
Half Bullnose Edge
The Half Bullnose Edge has a soft rounded top edge with a straight bottom edge. This edge highlights the thickness of the countertops.
The Ogee Edge, the most ornate of the edge profiles, are typically chosen in a more traditional style kitchen. The edge has a concave arch that flows into a convex arch.
The Bevel Edge is marked by a sharp 45 degree angle. This cut displays a defined border giving an elegant finish. Bevel edges can be modified to a ¼ bevel cut or a more defined ½ bevel cut.
Lastly, a Mitered Edge is when two pieces of stone are cut at a 45 degree angle and put together with a seam. This edge gives the appearance of a thick countertop, appearing seamless.
