Factors to Consider When Selecting Edges For Your Countertops  

One of the decisions that you will have to make when you are having new countertops fabricated for your home is what type of edge to use on the countertop. The edges are a design feature that helps to complete the look of your countertops while also adding style and character to them. At The Countertop Shop, we offer seven different edges for you to select from. Here are a few of the factors that you should consider when you are selecting edges for your new countertops.

The Material That the Edge is Being Completed On

Think about the type of material that the edge is being completed on. A great fabrication company can help you determine what types of edges are ideal for the type of material you have chosen. It is recommended that you avoid intricate edges on more exotic stones or on soft stones. That’s why it’s so important to work with professionals who know what kind of edges are safest for each surface.

The Desired Look and Theme Of Your Space

An ogee edge has a classic, yet upscale appearance that many people love on marble countertops placed in kitchens. Eased edges have clean lines that are often found in more modern spaces, while rounded edges create a standard look that can fit in with any kitchen or bathroom theme. Take the time to look at samples of various edges and whether that look will fit in with the desired finished look of your bathroom or kitchen.

At The Countertop Shop, we are pleased to offer these edges at no additional cost; Eased edge, ¼” round edge, half bullnose edge, full bullnose edge, bevel edge, waterfall edge, and ogee edge. Each edge has its own unique look which can help to differentiate your countertop and enhance its overall appearance.
