Choosing The Best Edge Profile For Your Countertops
Once you’ve chosen the countertop material, color and design for your space, the edge profile is the most important decision left to take. This detail is often overlooked and many Pennsylvania homeowners wish they had spent more time considering their options.
Your countertop itself, whether in the kitchen or bathroom, is constantly being seen and touched so it’s important to consider the impact your countertop edge will have on the aesthetics of your space. To define your new granite or quartz countertops and the overall look of your space, we’ve created a guide showcasing the various edge design options we offer and help you understand how to complement the style you’re aiming for.
Eased & Polished Edge
As part of our standard edge collection, our eased edge features a squared edge with “softened” corners. An eased countertop edge is a great option if you’re searching for something that is simple and does not distract from other design elements you want to highlight in your space. This option can complement any style and are very common for quartz countertops and stone countertops in general.
One of the most popular options from our standard edge collection, the full-bullnose edge features a rounded edge that gives a soft touch to any countertop design. The full-bullnose is a timeless classic and is a great choice for spaces with young children since the countertop will not have any sharp edges or corners.
