The shape of your countertop’s edge can have a huge effect on function, impacting everything from cleaning to safety. It’s the surface you’ll come into contact with most as you move through and use your kitchen, so its shape matters. Here are a couple of examples of some drastically different countertop edge profiles.

The popular edges are, for the most part, practical for any use in the kitchen or bathroom. So the primary factor to consider when you make your edge profile choice is aesthetic. Which do you like the best? Which will compliment your space? Is your kitchen is contemporary or industrial? Whether you pick something modern like a beveled edge or more traditional like a bullnose edge, you will need to consider the look and feel of your kitchen space before having your stone fabricated.
The thickness of the countertop makes a difference in which edge profiles are available, and which look best. The standard kitchen countertop is 30 millimeters thick, luxury countertops are cut 40 millimeters and some economy countertops are 20 millimeters thick, supported underneath by a layer of medium density fiberboard.
