Marble & Granite Countertop Edge Profiles
Granite and marble countertops can have practically limitless possibilities for edge profiles. When you are ready to purchase your countertop, you will be offered a variety of edges. Some very basic edges will be included in the square-foot or linear-foot price of the countertop. More decorative or complex edges can be added at an additional cost, which is usually nominal considering the investment you are making in the countertops.
The most basic countertop edge is the Straight Edge. It is a squared edge, with only a very slight bevel, called a chamfer, to take the sharpness from the edges. Demi Bullnose is a variation where the top edge is rounded more dramatically, and a Full Bullnose converts the edge of the countertop to a perfect half-circle. Quarter and Half Bevels are also popular, and the bevel can be carved on either the top or bottom.
Fancier edges are available, usually at extra cost to the consumer. Perhaps the most popular is the Ogee Bullnose. Inspired by medieval European architecture, the ogee edge consists of two graceful, sweeping arches, one concave, and the other convex. It adds a very elegant look to countertops, as does the Waterfall, which is three cascading convex arches.
