Choose Your Favorite Countertop Edge Treatment
One of the most important ways you can customize your kitchen or bathroom countertop is the edge. Our edges add the perfect texture to bring together your countertop and the rest of your home. We offer a variety of edges and will help you find the right one for your project. Ultimately, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The best look is the one that makes you feel the best.
Another simplistic edge finish is the flat edge. It’s a great choice because is never goes out of fashion making it perfect for modern and traditional style bathrooms and kitchens alike. It’s not trying to be something flashy that it’s not. It’s just simple, flat, and here to stay.
The eased edge, or “straight polish”, is the most straightforward edge treatment. It leaves your countertop edge almost perfectly square, polished just enough to remove the sharpness and make it safer.
Half Bullnose Edge
The hall bullnose edge is a fairly traditional countertop edge, rounded on top and flat on the bottom. It’s safer for kids and matches the style of homes with lots of rounded edges. This finish helps give the edge a robust, thick appearance.
The ogee is a classic and elegant countertop edge. It’s basically a large concave groove on top curved into the bottom. “Oh gee, that’s one good looking countertop edge!” No really, that’s how it got its name.
This is when the top of the countertop edge is subtly cut off at a 45-degree angle. You can adjust the size of the bevel cut to your liking. At Explore Kitchens, we can also modify the angle of the cut, making it more obtuse or acute. (Because who wouldn’t like “acute” little angle!)
