At GMS Werks, our team of natural stone professionals has helped many customers build their dream kitchen and bathrooms! Below, we discuss the different types of countertop edges and which one is best for your kitchen style!
Eased edge countertops are a very simple yet stunning design. Sometimes called straight edge, this style is a common choice in both traditional and modern kitchens and is a great choice for small kitchens with narrow walkways. An eased edge style is slightly rounded at the corners, which is both safe and comfortable. Eased edges work with every countertop material, and are very difficult to chip!
Beveled edges feature an angular design. This edge cut makes for a well-defined border that frames the countertop while maintaining an elegant finish. If you choose beveled edges, you will also have to determine the size of the angle. You can opt for a ¼ inch cut, or choose a more defined option at ½ inches. You also have the option of having just the top portion beveled, or both the top and bottom beveled. Although this edge style looks a bit more elegant, it is comparable in price to standard countertop edges!
Bullnose edges are one of the most popular edging options many homeowners choose. With a soft, rounded edge from top to bottom, bullnose edges work great in any design style! Many homeowners say this is the perfect edging style for granite countertops Omaha! It is also a great choice for homes with children since the countertop won’t have any sharp edges!
Half bullnose edges are very similar to bullnose but different as its roundness comes at a wider angle. This makes the countertops look a little thicker than full bullnose, but looks great in any design. Half bullnose edges look best with natural stone, and are very easy to clean!
Lastly, we have ogee countertop edges. This edging style has many different variations to choose from, including: cove, flat, deep, half or classic! Classic ogee edges feature an elegant “S” shape, and its curve can vary depending on the style! If you have a larger kitchen and want to add an elegant look, ogee edges are the perfect choice!
