Countertop Edge Types to Fit Your Kitchen Design

Redesigning a space is an exciting undertaking and one full of decisions. One design aspect that continues to get the attention it deserves is countertops. Kim Berndtson of Kitchen & Bath Design News explains that the countertops’ “prominent status [is] rightfully justified, given the important contributions they make to the aesthetics and function of a space, as well as the influence they wield over defining and refining subsequent selections.”

While color, texture and thickness are all important considerations for your surface design, don’t ignore the impact a countertop edge type can make on the space.

Caesarstone Edge Options

There are several different types of countertop edges you can choose from to fit both design style and lifestyle. For example, in lieu of hard corners, there is the more rounded option of the radius with its curved edge, or the even rounder edge of the bullnose. Those trying to avoid a harsh edge but still preferring an angular shape might opt for the softened right angle of the miter edge or instead aim for the squared-off bevel edges. And for the traditional sloped edge, the ogee design is also available. Caesarstone offers these different types of countertop edges plus some variations on each.

Choosing the Right Countertop Edge

Not sure what type of countertop edge suits your style? The design pros at Houzz have some suggestions for how to choose. First, always remember that sometimes less is more. When creating a space, it’s important to avoid having all the intricate details compete for attention. In situations where this may be a risk, opting for a surface in standard shape and thickness is best.

A great way to make the countertop the focal point of a space is to choose a mitered edge. A more rounded feel that comes with the bullnose edge is perfect for the classic look of the traditional kitchen. An ogee edge is a traditional choice that can add an interesting contrast in the modern kitchen. In fact, sometimes playing with contrast and experimenting with textures throughout can pay off big and create an inspired space unique to its owner.
