A key element to consider when designing your stone counter-tops

20mm Kitchen Benchtop Edge Styles

While there are a lot of edge profiles that can be created with marble, granite and quartz, these edge styles are some of the more popular that we see here at Aristocratic Stone. Take a look below for the benefits of each style and their thicknesses.

For classic benchtop styles like French Provincial, a Lambs Tongue would be better suited, while for a more modern kitchen, 20mm Pencil Round or a mitred edge would work well in your space.

40mm Kitchen Benchtop Edge Styles w/joins

Mitred and laminated joins are extremely popular with 40mm benchtop edging, but which one is best for your project?

The full bullnose example below is an example of a laminated edge, where two pieces of stone are placed on top of each other with a join in the middle. While very strong, this type of join is more noticeable and may affect the aesthetic appeal of your space.

Mitred joins are more popular here at Aristocratic and they involved cutting the two pieces of stone (usually) on a 45 degree angle, which are joined together at a 90d angle (See mitred pencil round and Mitred Apron).

This join is more visually appealing because it’s hidden more than a layered join, however, this type of edge is slightly more susceptible to chipping than a layered edge, but usually isn’t a problem for most.
