Many people underestimate the importance of putting some thought into the countertop edge of their counters. However, the edge of your countertops can have a substantial impact on the overall appearance that your counters provide. You may need to cater your countertop edge to your stone choice, because some materials are shaped slightly more easily than others. However, paying careful attention to the countertop edge that you want can make a huge difference to the appearance of your kitchen, bathroom, or other areas.
Square Countertop Edge
Square countertop edges are extremely popular. These edges are exactly what you would think, squared at the edges and rounded just enough to increase their safety level. The thickness of the countertop edge can also impact the appearance of the counters. When the square countertop edge has normal thickness, it will provide a classic, simple look. This look doesn’t emphasize the appearance of your countertops and often allows other areas of your room to serve as the focal point. When the square edges are thicker than normal, the countertop will generally be the focal point of your room. This can help to provide a much different appearance.
Waterfall edges are another popular choice for the countertops of the island in your kitchen. These countertop edges are square and end with a waterfall at the edge, where the countertop cascades down around the edges. Implementing a waterfall edge for your countertop can go a long way toward improving the appearance of the countertops.
Bullnose countertop edges can often help to provide a classic, traditional appearance for your room. These edges are rounded and can come in multiple styles. For one thing, double bullnoses edges can involve multiple rounded shapes. Full bullnoses countertop edges are usually thinner, while a half bullnose results in a thicker countertop.
Another option for your countertop edge is a bevel. This countertop provides a subtle, angular edge for the counters. This helps to provide a contemporary look for your room. Like with bullnose countertop edges, these countertops can come in different styles in order to provide the best appearance for your space.
Ogee edges of countertops form an S-shaped curve as the edges of your counter. This type of countertop edge is great for adding to the appearance of a traditional style room. Ogee edges are often extremely popular options for countertop edges due to the appearance that they provide.
Dupont countertop edges have a 90-degree angle from the top of the countertop. This angle then turns into a curve near the bottom of the countertop. The unique appearance of a Dupont countertop often provides an array of benefits for your building.
Triple pencil countertop edges are counters that maintain the appearance of three edges stacked up. These edges are called pencil edges. The stacked appearance helps to ensure a unique appearance for the countertops of your room. This can often substantially improve the appearance of the space.
