The edge treatment for your countertops can say a lot about your space. Though it’s a small detail, there are quite a few options to choose from, and many homeowners forget that they’ll have to decide until the last minute. Don’t get stuck with countertop edges that you’ll be second-guessing! The experts at Rock Tops can offer guidance and precision craftsmanship, so here we’ll go through a few edge treatments in detail in this blog.


Beveled edges are elegant design choices and a tasteful nod to the quality of the stone they ornament. If your space leans toward a traditional design sense, then these will fit right in. The term “bevel” itself refers to a 45-degree cut made right at the corner of the stone. We specialize in ¼ bevels and ½ bevels for a classic look with a low profile. On the other hand, if your countertop will be in a more modern setting or you would rather save money on this piece, you might opt for something more simple.

Eased and Bullnose

A simple rounded edge looks lovely in any setting, especially a kitchen or bathroom with a design that leans contemporary. An eased edge gives a countertop a much less severe profile, and it is a bit safer for little ones that aren’t looking where they’re going. For eased edge treatments we round off the top edge of the stone just slightly. Bullnose edges are even rounder, creating a quarter-circle or semicircle and the ends of your countertops. These can make a room look softer and more inviting to anyone that enters it. 

Ornate Edge Treatments

Here at Rock Tops, we’re glad to provide several more intricate edge treatments for our clients. Ogee-style edges have a beautiful S-shaped side profile that seems to cascade toward the floor. Dupont treatments give a tiered, official look to a counter. Cove edges are like a more eclectic bevel for those with more discerning tastes. These are all fun to choose from, design around, and create in our factory.
