Edge profiles are often overlooked, but they can really bring out the color and style of your kitchen. Whether it’s a clean and simple eased edge or an elegant tapered edge profile, you can customize the edge profile on any surface material, including granite and quartz countertops, to fit your desired aesthetic.

When it comes to designing your dream kitchen or bathroom, every detail matters. Countertop edges not only serve a practical purpose but also contribute to the overall aesthetics of the space. In this blog, we’ll dive into the fascinating world of countertop edges, exploring the various types and helping you make an informed choice that suits your style and functional preferences.

Countertop Edge Options


Relieved edge countertops offer modern simplicity, offering a clean and simple profile that fits seamlessly into any kitchen or bathroom design. With its slightly rounded top edge, it provides both aesthetic appeal and practicality, making it a family-friendly choice that requires minimal maintenance.


Beveled edge countertops create a seamless and visually striking look for kitchen and bathroom surfaces. Instead of a standard square or round edge, beveled edges involve cutting the countertop material at a 45-degree angle and creating a diagonal joint at the corners. This technique is often used on thicker countertop materials such as quartz, granite or marble, where the countertop surface and edge are made of one piece or two pieces glued together. Beveled edges eliminate the need for visible seams or edge joints, providing a sleek and modern look.


The beveled bench has an angled edge at the corner. This edge profile will highlight the border while maintaining a simple yet elegant look. There are different variations of the bevel edge, such as the double bevel edge where both corners are cut at an angle.

Quarter Round

The Quarter Round countertop edge is a subtle yet distinctive choice, often described as a ‘gentle curve’. Its round profile adds a sense of softness and sophistication to any kitchen or bathroom.

Full Bull Nose

Bullnose edge countertops not only offer a visually pleasing and luxurious look, but also provide safety and comfort in your kitchen or bathroom. The absence of sharp edges makes it family friendly and reduces the risk of accidents.


A Cove countertop edge is a hidden gem in the world of edge profiles. It is characterized by an inward curve, giving your kitchen or bathroom design a unique appeal. This edge style offers a blend of contemporary flair and functional advantages. The soft fold makes cleaning easier, as there are no sharp corners for dirt to collect.


The waterfall countertop edge is a dramatic and eye-catching option that has gained popularity in recent years. It creates a seamless effect by extending the countertop material down the sides. This style works extremely well with materials like quartz and can transform your countertop into a striking focal point.

Ogee Bullnose

This edge profile combines the graceful curves of the pointed edge with the smooth, rounded surface of the bullnose, resulting in a striking and intricate design. The top features the nail polish’s S-shaped curves, evoking a sense of luxury.

Double Ogee

It features two elegantly flowing S-shaped curves, one above the other, creating a striking visual effect that adds elegance to your kitchen or bathroom. Double ogee edge countertops beautifully complement materials such as marble or granite, enhancing their natural beauty. In addition to exuding a feeling of luxury, it is a practical choice as its rounded edges are comfortable and safe, making it suitable for family-oriented spaces.
