Many people give careful consideration to the surface of their countertop – but did you know that the edge of the countertop can also be a design statement? The experienced crew at Ideal Tile & Terrazzo Ltd. creates a variety of custom countertop edges for Spruce Grove and Edmonton area contractors and homeowners. Using traditional methods in conjunction with state-of-the-art machinery, our certified technicians cut, shape and polish your edges to create your customized granite or marble countertop.
Going for a sleek contemporary look? A straight, squared off edge on a thinner piece of granite fits right in. The same edge on a thicker piece of granite has more visual presence and gives off an even more modern, even industrial look. A bullnose rounded edge or a double-bevelled edge can also work well with modern décor. If you want all-out drama, go for a waterfall edge, continuing the pattern and colour of your stone down the sides of an island. More traditional kitchens may benefit from the elegance of an ogee or double ogee that showcases classic masonry skills. Customizing your countertop edges is but one of the many small details that will come together to form a unique look for your kitchen or bathroom and one that shouldn’t be ignored or forgotten during your renovation.
Generally, “less is more” is a good rule of thumb when it comes to remodelling your home or business. It doesn’t make any sense to have everything competing for attention – you need to decide what you want to stand out most in the redesign. If you’ve decided that your custom countertop edges should be a focal point, we recommend that you go with a 2cm or 3cm thickness with your countertop materials to make them appear thicker and naturally attract the eye.
