Worktop edge details
Here at MKW Surfaces, we create different types of worktop edge details to make your surface unique and stylish. Whether you choose marble, quartz and granite or any other stone, you’re likely to choose a worktop shape that suits your kitchen style and give it the desired look.
The small details are what makes work surface and every each piece unique. Choosing the right type of edge your project can be not only confusing but also time consuming.
MKW Surfaces is ready to advice and assist not only in selecting the right type of stone edge profile for different types of projects from small to large, residential or commercial, to complete the look you are trying to achieve but also ensuring the surfaces perform the way you want them to.
We have a vast range of edge profiles to choose from:
With a choice of a chamfered edge, rounded edge or moulded edge on worktop display, you can easily create a worktop that complements the kitchen interior and other kitchen appliances and furniture.
Here is a small list of the most popular worktop edge details that we provide to our clients in the UK:
- Chamfered edge: A chamfered edge, also known as transitional edge, is formed between two adjacent right-angle faces of an object. It is generally crated at a 45-degree to ease out the sharp edges for safety and to prevent damages.
- Square edge: Aside from chamfer, pencil or bevelled edge, the square edge is another popular worktop detail to compliment any kitchen design with clean and simple lines.
- Bevelled edge: The bevelled edge detail is not perpendicular to the faces of an object. Often bevel and chamfer edge profiles are interchangeable; however, they differentiate technically. The bevel is between 1-2mm thick.
- Waterfall edge: It is an intricate edge that may become a fresh addition to kitchens that don’t require standard finishing. However, these require more maintenance than most other edge profiles. It is most popular in Farm Houses and traditional spaces.
- Bullnose edge: It is a rounded edge profile to give a classic and timeless look to any traditional space.
- Chiselled edge: It forms a beautifully riven surface boasting an inward chip on the edge to form a rugged antique appearance.
Advice and guidelines:
Square and standard thicknesses: Simple, clean lines work best in a standard or simple kitchen. Every kitchen will have a focal point, so try to avoid focusing in intricate and/or heavily designed edges. Pencil, bevel or chamfer edge are the most popular type of edge detail which compliment any look.
Bullnose edge: a rounded edge profile with timeless looks, perfect for traditional spaces.
Waterfall edge: an intricate edge which provides a fresh addition to any space by breaking away from the more standard horizontal worktops. Very popular on islands, it requires more maintenance than other type of edges to clear foods such as salt, sugar, flour and other household items.
Chunky and thick looks: Mitred, square edges work best for extra thick worktops that are a focal point in a given room. Mitred edges are produced by making an internal 45 degree angle, metering a frame in them, providing an appearance of having a thick, solid block of stone which works for both traditional and modern spaces.
Eased edging: Eased edges not only softens the look of the stone slightly but provides additional protection to it.An eased edge profile makes the stone much less sharp and less prone to chipping in case of an accidents.
Ogee Edge: Ogee edge profile is a timeless classic type of edge that works very well on traditional kitchens by evoking the ornate looks of different, past times providing flow to the stone.
Chiselled edge: our skilled stonemasons chip away at the stone, applying a sealant to soften its edge, resulting in a worktop with rustic looks.
