Countertop Edges


There are a few things to keep in mind when pairing a countertop material with edging. First, you will want to consider your budget. Next, you will want to review the type of stone and the style of the space it will be in. Finally, you will need to examine the size of the countertops and which edging style best suits them.

Some countertop materials have a limited number of edge styles they can accommodate. Before making your decision, contact our design team to assist you. Even better, visit the Choice Granite & Marble Showroom. There, you’ll be able to see and feel the various edge options available to you.


beveled edge

Beveled Edge

Beveled edges provide a well-defined border that frames the countertop. This style maintains an elegant finish with a 45-degree angle. Customers can choose to go with a ¼” or a more defined ½” bevel. Beveled edges are a popular choice due to their appearance and general affordability.

double thick

Double Thick Eased Edge

This style of eased edge is roughly 2-½” thick. Complementing modern aesthetics, it is substantial and beefy. Clients usually select this option to set their island apart from the rest of the kitchen.

eased edge

Eased Edge

Eased edges are perfect for small kitchens and narrow walkways. Their rounded corners are subtle yet provide safety and comfort. This feature also prevents chipping and is available for any countertop material. Choosing an eased edge style is popular among clients. This is because they are an inexpensive option for modern or traditional kitchens.
full bullnose edge

Full Bullnose Edge

Bullnose edges offer a soft finish and sophisticated look. This style results in curved edges along the top and bottom of a countertop for an even finish. Perfect for kitchens and bathrooms, this style works well with any countertop material. It is also easy to clean and safe for children.
half-bullnose edge

Half Bullnose Edge

Half bullnose edges combine a soft curve with a flat bottom. The soft, rounded top makes this edge a popular choice among kitchens of all sizes. Additionally, half bullnose edges provide the illusion of a thicker countertop. When compared to a full bullnose edge, a half bullnose edge merges safety with a bolder look.
ogee edge


An ogee edge has curves that vary from subtle to dramatic. This style of edge is very popular for natural stone counter materials. Given the extra depth it adds to countertops, the ogee is best for larger kitchens.
chiseled edge

Chiseled Edge

If you are seeking a rustic and natural feel for your kitchen, consider chiseled edges. When added to granite countertops, chiseled edges expose the raw stone. This not only highlights the stone’s beauty but brings the “great outdoors” into your home.
