Countertop Edge Profiles
Countertop edge profiles create a unique statement and provide a finished look. At Star Lumber, we can cut your countertop edge into one of several types of edge profiles. For quartz and granite countertops, our edge profiles include pencil roll, ogee, bevel, full bullnose, half bullnose, and eased profiles. When you meet with your designer, you’ll be able to see examples of the different edges and get recommendations for the option that will best complement your countertop material and color.
Before making your selection, consider the overall style of your kitchen. Eased edges and pencil roll edges complement any kitchen design and have a flat appearance from the side. If you’re looking to add a little more interest to your kitchen or bathroom countertops, beveled edges are sleek and modern. Full bullnose and half bullnose countertop edges are rounded so there are fewer sharp corners. And if you’re looking for a classic style, consider an ogee edge with its gentle curves.
