From simple straight edges to the basins, edge profiles are an important part of kitchen worktops. No matter which stone you choose, these popular edges are great options for every kitchen. Not only they are very functional in preventing the injuries when you accidentally bump into your worktops, but they can also add to the overall appearance of your kitchen.
1. Volcanic edge
This edge is deeply rounded at the top and bottom. It is also called Bullnose. This edge profile is perfect for free standing kitchen islands, as it will prevent you from hitting on sharp edges. It is also great for families with small children for the same reason. When it comes to its design, it suits well both traditional and modern style kitchens.
2. Boulder Edge
This is one of the most ornate edges and it is also called the Waterfall. That name describes perfectly its shape. It has one basin followed by two bulges which remind of waterfalls. This edge type is most often used for shaker style kitchens. As it is rounded, it will be also a great option for families with children.
3. Square Edge
A simple, elegant line, like the square edges gives, is a good choice for minimalistic kitchens. A square edge is perfect if you don’t want to drive too much attention to your countertops, but want to highlight other elements of your kitchen, like the lighting for example. It is simple, yet very effective and elegant. This edge profile may not be the first choice for families with children for obvious reasons.
