Granite countertop edges can be simple or complex, with curves or sharp angles. Your contractor may use a different name for an edge than what is shown here. Be sure you understand what his or her definition is of the edge you are interested in.

 

Eased Edge - This edge treatment is very common and offers a clean and simple look for your granite counter tops. This edge is used on most granite tops. On granite counter tops, eased edge offers a square flat face with the sharp edge on top rounded slightly.  Sometimes, the eased edge is rounded enough to be called a quarter round granite edge.

 Half Bullnose or Roundover Edge - The half bull nose edge can also be called the round over because instead of being squared off, it is rounded over. It offers a smooth and round surface. It can show a larger cross section of your stone.

 

Demi Bullnose Edge - Unlike its name implies, this is not 1/2 of a bull nose. This edge is very smooth and flowing and shows a large cross section of the countertop making it appear thicker.

 

Full Bull-nose Edge - The full bull-nose offers perhaps the most contemporary look of the granite countertop edges. A side view of full bull-nose shows the shape of a half circle. The full bull-nose is gentle on the body and has no edges to chip. It also tends to make granite counter tops look thinner.

 

Bevel Edge - Bevels are 45 degree cuts into the edge of the stone. The deeper the cut, the wider the bevel face is. If the stone has a tendency to chip, a bevel edge may chip more than a rounded edge will.

 

Ogee Edge - From the side, an ogee edge forms the shape of an "S". This is often the most elaborate edge treatment offered by our fabricators. It's usually the most expensive as well. Ogee is used for a more traditional look.

 

Dupont Edge - Sometimes called "Bird's Beak", the Dupont edge looks like a demi bull-nose with a notch at the top. On certain stones it may have more of a tendency to chip.

 

Triple Waterfall Edge and Laminated Edge - Very elaborate edge profiles can be made with special router bits like this Triple Waterfall. Real craftsman can create an unlimited array of edges by gluing together different profiles.

   
 

Triple Waterfall Edge and Laminated Edge - These edges can make a granite counter top appear very thick throughout. Of all the granite countertops edges, this is by far the most expensive.

 

Chiseled Edge - Perhaps the most natural or rustic edge is chiseled. Some fabricators chisel this edge by hand. Others use pneumatic chiseling machines.

   
 

Chiseled Edge - The chiseled edge is rough and looks like a naturally broken piece of granite. It is often lightly smoothed and sprayed with a clear coat finish to make it shine.


Each of these granite countertop edges requires varying amounts of effort and time to create. The more elaborate the edge, the more it costs (usually!) Some fabricators have machinery that allows them to make fancy edges at a lower cost than simple edges. Most of the edges we are available by machinery.

We typically charge by the lineal foot for edge treatments. Contact me for more information.
