Choosing the Right Edge Profile for Your Countertops

Thinking about new countertops in your bathroom or kitchen? Your choice doesn’t end when you decide what material to use. One of the key elements that will shape your design are the edge profiles.

 

A couple of things to keep in mind when you’re deciding on this would include the look of the overall space and its practicality.

 

Whatever edge profile you choose should look good with all other features of your kitchen or bathroom. That includes the cabinets and even door and drawer handles. When thinking about this step, it’s a good idea to work with a professional that can show you the best options with each feature. Make sure you take plenty of pictures of the things you’re planning on putting in your updated space so it’s easier to visualize your finished product.

 

In addition, you may want to consider different edge profiles, particularly if you decide to use multiple surfaces. More people are doing this in their space, but you need to make sure you use them in appropriate ways, like different edges on an island versus the main countertop.

 

No matter how great your remodel looks, make sure it works for you practically speaking. A chiseled edge might look fantastic, but it won’t be terribly comfortable if you constantly rub against it. From another angle, a beveled edge may look stunning, but if the surface you choose tends toward chipping, avoid that style as it tends to chip more easily in those counters.

 

The other thing to keep in mind is that each edge is different and the more complex an edge is, the more it will cost.

 

A designer is one of your most valuable allies in this process because they’ll know what will work both practically and from a design standpoint. Make an appointment with one and you’ll be able to discuss all that goes into your remodel so they can help you design a space that works well and looks great.
