Countertop Edges

Adriano Granite & Quartz expert countertop fabricators craft a number of different countertop edge options. 

Countertop Edges

Adriano provides two different edges to choose from as part of our standard process including an eased flat edge and a demi bullnose. We also have a variety of stunning edge types to choose from at an additional cost. If you have a different edge in mind that you don't see below, let us know! Chances are, we can make it happen. 
Eased flat counter edge


The eased flat edge is one of the most common choices among our clients. Simple yet modern, the slight radius is just enough to mitigate sharp edges.


The demi bullnose, or half bullnose, is our other standard edge. With the rounded top and flat bottom, the demi bullnose is a customer favorite.
Bevel countertop edge


The beveled edge typically features a sleek, 45° angle that frames the countertop. The elegance of a bevel is common in contemporary style homes.  
Dupont countertop edge


Commonly found in traditional homes, dupont countertop edges combine a sweeping curve and inverted ogee. 
Ogee countertop edge


Ogee countertop edges feature not one, but two S-curves. Dramatic, yet classic, ogees go great in spacious, traditional kitchens.
Bullnose countertop edge


From kitchens to bathrooms, bullnoses eliminate the worry of sharp edges. Featuring a radius spanning from top to bottom. 
Chiseled Countertop edge


A popular choice for farmhouses and the rustic trends, chiseled edges are also known as rock faces and emphasize the stone's raw edge.
Mitered Countertop Edge


With customizable edges spanning from 2"-6" a miter combines two pieces of stone. Much like with seams, we closely match the rock's natural pattern. 
quarter round


Quarter round edges are essentially a mix between the bullnose and eased flat edges. Quarter rounds feature a radius on the top and the bottom.

What do I need to consider when deciding between product types?

There are a variety of factors to consider when deciding between quartz, granite, quartzite, or other solid surface materials. In terms of a straight answer, there isn't one. Instead, it comes down to the aesthetic goals, the specific application, the countertop location, and budgetary restrictions. Natural stone products have a captivating element that customers have longed after for years. Whereas solid surface materials can oftentimes provide more flexibility and options in terms of unique molding and forming opportunities. It all comes down to what your goals are. One of our experts at Adriano will happily talk through the diverse options with our clients to find the best solution for you. 

What's the difference between granite and quartz countertops?

Granite and quartz countertops are both very durable products. The primary difference between granite and quartz is that granite is a natural stone derived from a slab. Whereas quartz countertops contain a large amount of natural stone, however, the countertops are a man-made, engineered, poured material.

Additionally, granite and quartz can have different edging and corner techniques. However, at the end of the day, due to being a natural stone, granite needs to be sealed. Whereas quartz is another natural stone but you don’t cut quartz sheets out. Quartz is typically poured and polished but does not need to be sealed. 

Both granite and quartz provide truly one-of-a-kind countertops, each containing unique color variations.

How often do you typically have to seal granite countertops?

If you google this exact question, you're going to get a variety of different answers. If we're being honest, some people never have their countertops resealed. However, that doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. Lighter-color granite counters typically need to be resealed more often due to being more porous than darker variations. If you are noticing divots, that's a tell-tale sign that you should reseal your countertops. Resealing your countertops increases the longevity of the counters. Adriano recommends calling us to reseal granite countertops bi-yearly.

Can granite chip?

Yes, granite can chip but you're going to have to try pretty hard to do so. As a solid stone, granite can take quite a bit of wear and tear. However, if a chip does occur, we can fill it with a mixture of granite dust and epoxy. 

Can I set a hot pan on granite countertops?

Under typical conditions, granite will absorb the heat from hot pans, trays, or pots without harm. However, trivets and other forms of heat protectants are recommended to maintain appearance and longevity.

Do natural stone countertops increase the resale value of my home?

Yes. In addition to its timeless appearance, natural stone countertops including granite and quartzite are known for their longevity and durability. 

Can you cantilever countertops?

In short, yes, you can cantilever countertops. The amount of which a countertop can cantilever depends on the material and its thickness. For example, thicker granite can naturally cantilever farther than thinner without supports, but there is a limit. If the look you're going for includes an overhang amount that requires support, there are a variety of brackets and supports our installation experts can utilize. The same is true in terms of quartz and marble.

How are seams made?

We create seams by joining two pieces of stone together to create a larger piece. For countertops, the edges of color-matched pieces are cut smooth, matched with the corresponding adhesive, and joined tightly until the adhesive cures. Then, any excess bonding material is thoroughly removed and the seams are polished. In terms of seam visibility, it depends on the product type, color, texture, and veining. Adriano Granite & Quartz strives to get our seams as close as possible and believe we are some of the best in the industry at matching seams.
