Countertop Edge Profile

The countertop edge profile seems like a small detail that is purely aesthetic, but it’s not. Its the surface you come in contact with the most so its shape definitely matters and makes it one of the most important decisions when it comes to selecting your countertop.

You can go with a countertop edge profile that is sleek and modern like a straight polish which has 90° angles with a slight bevel so the edges aren’t sharp and so they don’t chip. Or would you rather go with something more decorative and fancy like the Roman Ogee? The choice for your countertop’s edge profile is up to you, we just help turn your design or concept into reality.

Whatever your choice is for your countertop edge profile, we have several different choices to choose from here at In Home Stone. Please check out our helpful edge guides below for examples of how each profile looks on our countertops. If you are still having trouble feel free to contact us to discuss options.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you’re ready to make a valuable upgrade to your living space, here are some FAQ about natural stone and quartz:

  • Natural stone vs quartz

Natural stone is sourced straight from the earth. It can be found in a huge variety of unique colors and three different textures (polished, honed and leather), has good resistance, withstands high temperatures and has long durability. It has low porosity after being properly sealed which makes it ideal to be installed both indoors and outdoors.

Quartz is an industrialized stone made by combining quartz minerals with pigments and resins. Having the same marble look but maintenance and worry free is one of the main advantages of quartz as it is stain and starch resistant. Since quartz is over 90% a  manmade stone, it also allows for a greater variety of colors and style, resulting in beautiful countertops.

  • Maintenance

Natural stone requires sealing every five years to maintain its smooth look and durability.

Because quartz is fused with resin and other polymers, it does not need to be sealed regularly.
