10 Quartz Edge Profiles

Once you have decided on the color of your quartz countertop for your home improvement project, it may seem that choosing the edge of your new counters is the most important decision left to take in order to ensure the perfect design for your space.

And while the color and patterns of your new countertops will definitely have a big impact on the overall appearance of the room, it is another easily overlooked detail – the countertop edge profile – that will affect the efficiency, safety and style of your new kitchen or bathroom to a much greater extent.

The shape of your countertop’s edge can have a huge effect on function, impacting everything from cleaning to safety.

It’s the surface you’ll come into contact with most as you move through and use your kitchen, so its shape matters. Here are 10 examples of some different countertop edge profiles.



Volcanic Edge

Deeply rounded at the top and bottom of the edge, this profile is sometimes also called a Bullnose or Full Bullnose.







Summit Edge

Both the top and bottom edged of this edge profile are rounded. It’s sometimes called a ¼ Round Double.








Moraine Edge

For a natural, rustic appearance, choose this hand-finished profile often named Chiseled, Broken Edge or Rock Face.







Treeline Edge

This angled edge is often called a Bevel.








Piedmont Edge

Softly rounded on the top edge. Additionally referred to as ½ Bullnose, Demi Bullnose or a ¼ Round.







Seacliff Edge

The edge is beveled, not rounded, at the top, often referred to as an Eased profile.







Boulder Edge

This profile, often called Waterfall, is one of our most ornate.







Rimrock Edge

The Mitered edge is an edge assembled from two pieces, to give a countertop with less weight the appearance of a much heavier one.








Basin Edge

Our thinnest Ogee profile. Also called a Saskatoon Ogee or Short Ogee.







Cornice Edge

Our fullest Ogee profile design, also called a Cove Ogee over Ogee.
