KITCHEN GRANITE COUNTERTOPS

It's the details that make a kitchen unique. Every small choice intersects to create the finished product — and as many who have endured a remodel know, the small choices can be agonizing. Selecting an edge profile for your countertops is one of these choices.

Square and standard thickness. Less is often more. In a clean-lined and simple kitchen, a basic 3cm-square profile works best.

Square and mitered. Most of the time when you see an extra-thick countertop, it's a mitered edge. Meaning that the thickness is standard either 2cm or 3cm with a mitered frame around the sides, making the slab look thicker. This is a great way to make your kitchen countertops the focal point, and it can work well in either a modern or traditional kitchen.

Eased and mitered edge. This mitered stone top has a slightly eased edge and rounded corners. As you can see, the smallest change in detail makes the stone look very different.

Square with a waterfall edge. Another way to make your stone countertops a focal point is to run them vertically down the edge of the island.

Ogee. A traditional ogee edge on an island with a more contemporary square edge on the perimeter walls. It's another timeless classic that works well in traditional kitchens.

Marine edge. This is profile is more often seen on stainless steel countertops. It's a built-up thickness, but rather than mitered, the outside edge is raised. I'm assuming the term "marine edge" refers to how this detail keeps liquids from running off the countertop.
