Countertop edges are the finishing touch to your countertop installation and are generally included with any new countertop purchase. There are many different types to choose from depending on the size of your kitchen and your preferred decor style.

Eased edges are great for small kitchens. They feature a soft square that offers an understated and unobtrusive finish. This is great for tight corners and narrow walkways.
Ogee edges are popular for natural stone countertops, but they can also be achieved on laminate surfaces. They feature an elegant “S” shape made of two curves that can vary from subtle to more dramatic. Since this edge add extra depth to your countertop, it’s best suited for larger kitchens.
Half bullnose edges, also known as roundover edges, add a delicately curved silhouette to any kitchen. These are rounded on the top and flat on the bottom, and they work for cooking spaces of all sizes.
Bullnose edges are curved along the top and bottom for an even finish. These edges are universally flattering for virtually any kitchen, making them an option for both traditional homes and contemporary spaces. The soft finish offers a sophisticated touch that is safe for kids and easy to clean.
Beveled edges are marked by their sharp 45-degree angle. This cut makes for a well-defined border that frames the countertop while maintaining an elegant finish.
Double radius edges are similar to eased edges, but there is one curve at the top and another along the edge. Additional, the curves feature a larger radius – usually a quarter of an inch around. This larger radius makes for a more dramatic profile, designed to make a statement in larger kitchens.
