Selecting the Countertop Edge

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

If you’ve had the pleasure of building a custom new kitchen, then you’ve been faced with the challenge of coordinating the counter, cabinet, flooring, and appliance details. One decision you have to make before you can order your countertops is selecting the countertop edge and backsplash. Ambassador Floor Company offers a wide range of countertop and backsplash styles and materials including marble, granite, quartz, recycled glass and exotic marble.

The most popular marble and granite edge profiles are half and full bull nose; quarter bevel; and radius top, cove, ogee and double ogee; chiseled and dupont. The selection of the countertop edge is primarily one of personal preference.

Read an informative houzz article highlighting countertop edge selection by writer Rebekah Zaveloff, entitled, “Kitchen Details: The Right Edge for Your Countertop”. Regarding the coordination of details in the kitchen design, the author writes, “Each kitchen has something that stands out and says “look at me.” Sometimes it’s the tile, sometimes it’s the lighting, and sometimes it’s the countertop material. I make it a rule to avoid having everything shout for attention; that way there’s some breathing room.”

The Ambassador Floor Company showroom is located at 17770 Chesterfield Airport Road, a quarter mile west of Long Road, in Chesterfield, Missouri. Please call the showroom at 636.728.1600 to schedule an appointment during or after hours.
