So you are finally remodeling your kitchen and have chosen a beautiful granite countertop. You’ve picked a color and pattern that compliments the room perfectly. But an equally important decision that you have to make but probably overlooked is what edging treatment to choose. In today’s blog, kitchen remodeling expert The Kitchen Store walks you through the different edge profiles available today and gives a brief explanation of each so you can select the perfect one for your kitchen
Pencil Edge Countertop
Also known as a quarter round edge, this style has an angled edge that curves slightly upon reaching the vertical face of the countertop.
Square Edge Countertop
Square edge countertops are simple but elegant and are a favorite among kitchen remodeling service providers. This edging treatment gives you clean, straight lines and is suitable for modern interiors.
Eased Edge Countertop
This style is a safer variation of the square edge countertop since the edges are smoothed over to decrease sharpness without being too round. The 90-degree angle is still maintained but with a softer finish.
Beveled Edge Countertop
This is one of the flashier options with a mirror-like edge cut at a 45-degree downward angle. It also makes cleaning up spills much easier as liquid cannot flow to the bottom due to its design.
Double Bevel Countertop
If you want an added wow factor then the double bevel is a perfect choice. Both the bottom and the top are cut at a 45-degree angle and is a good choice for both modern and traditional designs.
This design features a slight curve on the top surface of the countertop with a straight bottom portion. This profile allows liquid to smoothly run off the countertop which is a great feature that can preserve the life of the cabinetry beneath.
