Dissecting Countertop Edge Details

Posted on September 12, 2018

When it comes to remodeling your kitchen, the devil is in the details. While some of these details might seem small and insignificant, they can often make or break the entire look of your kitchen. These details can include anything from drawer pulls to moldings and chair rails. However, one of those seemingly insignificant details can often have a dramatic effect in your kitchen includes countertop edge details. If you visit a well-stocked kitchen showroom, you might notice that some of the countertops in their display areas have detailing around the edges. If you want your countertops to look polished and put together, adding edge details to your own countertop might be a great idea. Here are some of the most popular options you can choose from.

Eased Edge Detail

This is probably the most common edge detail you will see in a typical kitchen showroom. This is also the simplest option. Eased edges are simple flat edges with the corners eased out slightly. Since you are dealing with flat surface, a countertop with this type of edge is very easy to clean.

Bullnosed Edge Detail

A countertop with bullnosed edges will have a rounded edge without any corners. If you are having a difficult time visualizing this type of edge, imagine that the edges of your countertops end in a semi circle. Like an eased edge detail, bullnosed edges are also very easy to clean. Alternatively, you could also opt for a demi-bullnosed edge. This type of edge is only round at the top so your countertop will end with a quarter circle with a rounded edge on top and a sharper edge at the bottom.

Beveled Edge Detail

This is like a cross between an eased edge and a demi-bullnosed edge. Instead of having one edge rounded off however, to top part of your counter will end with a beveled 45-degree edge.

These are just three of the most popular edge details that you will see on countertops commonly found in a typical kitchen showroom. While there are other options available, they are often more complicated and harder to maintain.
