The details are what make a kitchen or bathroom unique. However, the details that go into finishing a space can be overwhelming. Countertop edges might seem insignificant, but they can play a big role in creating a finished design. Here is a quick description of common countertop edge styles.

When simplicity is what you are going for, the standard edge is a common choice. The square standard edge creates a clean line with a basic 3cm edge. The edges are “eased” or softened for practicality.

A mitered square edge gives an extra-thick look. Popular in contemporary homes, two pieces of granite are mitered together at the sides, making the slab appear thicker. This edge style is a great choice when the countertops are serving as a focal point.

Bullnose edges have a rounded edge. Countertops can be cut to have a full bullnose edge, a half bullnose edge, or a demi-bullnose edge.

A bevel edge has a 45 degree angle.

Ogee has a double curved edge. Ogee edges create a good contrast when paired with the simpler square edge.

There are many other custom edge styles. Consult your granite fabricator to see what edge styles they offer.
