Choosing your countertops is a big decision to make. After all, they are a significant element of your kitchen. Another big decision to make is selecting the edge for the countertops. It may seem like a small detail, but the edge can change the look of your kitchen in an instant.
There are about 18 different countertop edge styles and options to choose from. The most popular kitchen countertop edge styles are beveled, bullnose, demi-bullnose, eased, and ogee, all of which create a different look.
You’ll need to consider the size of your kitchen, the cabinetry, budget, and the overall design feel you want. A decorative edge can make small spaces feel even smaller and require more detailed cleaning. If you have ornate cabinetry, you may want to consider a simple edge profile to avoid a busy, cluttered look.
