Kitchen Countertop Edge Profiles

By Brian McMonagle

Kitchen Countertop Edge Profiles available in 20mm and 30mm worktops.

Pencil Edge

Pencil Edge is your standard rounded edge. The Pencil edge has a slight angular edge that rounds into the vertical surface of the quartz/ granite. It is most common in Kitchens as it’s easy to maintain. 

Waterfall Edge

Waterfall edge is a way to show off the veining in a slab with the three drop down edging on the countertop. Waterfall edges are trendy as they add the sleek finish to any kitchen. They’re very easy to clean.

E.g. - An elegant Tobacco quartz waterfall counter creates a minimal look.

Bull nose Edge

- This edge design brings out a glistening and contemporary look. Rounded, Smooth edging is provided for the Bull nose edge. The bull nose edge is a curved edge, not sharp

Bevel Edge

- A bevel edge has a 45- degree cut in the edge of the granite/ quartz. The deeper quartz and granite is cut the wider the face of the edge becomes. 

Box Edge

– The box edge creates a smooth yet subtle soft edge from under the counter all the way to the surface of the countertop. 

Sharksnose Edge

A sharksnose edge is a smooth edge. The edging looks very thin and is ideal for units that are “handless “. Sharksnose edge on a worktop can look wafer- thin and almost hovering above the unit. Sharksnose are the very popular with contemporary kitchens.
