Granite Edge Profiles
Decorative edge profiles are available and bring a unique elegance. As a leading fabricator, CRS Granite offers a wide selection of edge profiles to give your countertop that unique look of elegance. Our standard edges are included in the price of the countertop. More decorative or complex edges can be added at an additional cost.
The primary factor to consider when you make your edge profile choice is aesthetic. Which do you like the best? Which will compliment your space? If your kitchen is contemporary or industrial, an ogee edge will look out of place with its classic curves, and you’d be serviced better by simple radius or a bevel. A country-style kitchen would be enhanced by waterfall edges. And an ogee edge would fit nicely in a modern, elegant space.
Ultimately, you should choose the edge profile that you like the best. Remember that once you buy a natural stone countertop, it will last the rest of your life (and probably your children’s and grandchildren’s lives), so choose the edge that you love, even if it costs a little more. You’ll be glad you did.
The most common edge is the straight edge. It is a squared edge, with only a very slight bevel, called a chamfer, to take the sharpness from the edges. A popular modification to this is the quarter round, where the top edge is rounded off, or the double quarter round, where both the top and bottom edges are rounded. Bevelled edges are also popular, and the bevel can be carved on either the top or bottom edges or both.
Eased 1/8" Radius (No build-up)
Decorative edges such as our Classic are an extra cost because they are more complex than our standard edges. The most popular is our Eased 3/8" step back build-up.
Eased 3/8" Radius Build-Up
Eased 3/8" Radius 45 Build-Up
Eased 3/8" Radius Step Back Build-Up
Fancier edges cost more than our classic because they require more time to build & polish. The most complex is our Large Ogee. Inspired by medieval European architecture, the ogee edge consists of two graceful, sweeping arches, one concave, and the other convex. It adds a very elegant look to countertops.
