Marble is one of the most beautiful materials in the world, and when paired with a unique style of edge, it can truly transform the look and feel of an entire space. For many homeowners, marble is a popular choice of countertop material because of its durability, ease of maintenance, and its natural beauty.
With a variety of edge profiles available, such as straight beveled, bullnose, and ogee, homeowners can create a truly unique and personalized look that matches their style and provides a welcoming aesthetic to the home.
In this blog post, we’ll discover some of the different options for marble countertops with unique edges and how you can ensure that you choose the best option for your kitchen or bathroom counters.
Best Edge for My Marble Countertop
In this section, we’ll discuss the various types of edge profiles offered by Marble Granite World, and we’ll talk about their advantages, disadvantages, and other attributes.
Eased: Eased edges are considered to be the industry standard. The edges are square yet rounded, meaning they’re generally safer if you have children or if your countertops are in a high-traffic area.
Quarter Round: A quarter-round edge may sound esoteric, but it’s basically a happy medium between straight edges and half-round edges. This type of edge provides a subtle curvature on the top and a straight edge on the underside.
Beveled: Beveled edges can come in a variety of sizes (small, medium, and large), and their name sums up their appearance pretty plainly. Beveled edges are similar to rounded edges, except the angles aren’t rounded and smoothed out.
Bullnose: Like beveled edges, bullnose edges come in half and full varieties. A half-bullnose edge is most similar to the quarter round but with a more pronounced rounding on the topmost edge. A full bullnose, however, is when both the top and bottom outer edges are significantly rounded. This is another good option if safety is one of your primary concerns.
Ogee: Last but not least, an ogee edge is kind of a wildcard. Ogee edges look fantastic in more traditional settings because of their flowing concave and convex arches, which are more ornate than other, more common edge options.
