The Many Types of Countertop Edges

When it comes to your countertops, there’s more to em’ than the type and the color. There’s a whole world of different types of countertop edges that help define the look of your space. Whether your countertops are in a kitchen, bath, laundry room, or any other space – the type of countertop edge always plays a role. The types of countertop materials that have edges are basically any type of countertop. But the ones that allow you most options include granite, quartz, and butcher block.

Demi Bullnose

A Demi bullnose edge is a great countertop edge for any style kitchen. It provides a soft curve to the material and provides a nice softness to the space. Here we’ve paired it with a white classic kitchen complete with delicate finishes. Check out a demi-bullnose below:


A DuPont edge is a classic style edge. It really gives the space a dose of traditionalism and richness. Here we’ve paired it with a space that has two different finishes of inset cabinetry and the countertop material is to die for. We love it!


A mitered edge is a type of edge that is cut to form a point. Here we’ve created a mitered edge with a waterfall (counter that goes to the floor along the side of the cabinet). A mitered edge is great for any space, but here it bodes well for this modern kitchen.


An ogee edge is also one of those classic styles of edging. It’s traditional, delicate, and beautiful to look at. Here we’ve paired the edge with marble countertops. Can’t get more classic than that!

Square Polish

A square polished edge is great for any style such as modern or traditional. A square edge should not be taken as being too simple, because the clean lines and straight edges provide a nice balance to any space!

We’ve covered a few types of edges, but in reality, there are so many more to choose from! Plus, you could even create beautiful combinations pairing different types together. The possibilities are endless!
