Have you considered edge profiles in your search for stone worktops? Many people when choosing worktops forget to consider the different range of edge profiles. An edge profile is the decorative cutting at the end of the work surface and can make the difference with the look and feel of your new kitchen.
There are several different types of edge profiles available which include:
Ogee – The Ogee edge is a popular choice for stone worktops and is a classic design that has been used for decades in kitchens and it still looks great today. It gives your kitchen an understated elegance, while still providing all the practicality you need. The Ogee edge features a sophisticated S-shaped curve that provides a classic look perfect for traditional kitchens.
Bull nose - Bull nose is a rounded edge on each side of the worktop and looks very stylish. This is particularly useful if you have children or pets as it stops them from cutting themselves on the sharp corners of your kitchen worktop.
Bevel - A bevel edge is the most common edge profile for stone worktops. It’s a straight edge that has been chipped on the front and back to give it a slightly curved appearance. This style is equally at home on modern worktops or in a vintage kitchen that needs new life.
Half Bullnose - The Half Bullnose edge features a slight curve on the upper surface of the worktop, with a straight bottom portion. This edge is a great solution for when you want to soften the edges of a hard surface.
Now that you know about some of the different types of worktop edges, you can select the edge that works best for you! All in all, edge profiles are one of the easiest and most convenient ways to customize a kitchen design, even if it's just a little different from all the rest. They are a great way to add a touch of personality and uniqueness to your kitchen design, which makes for a more original and exciting project overall. So why not try something different?
