Mitered and Waterfall Edge Countertops Cincinnati OH
One of the most important details of countertops is the edge profile. Though a seemingly small detail, the edge profile you select plays a huge role in the overall look of your countertops. That’s why it is important to make sure you “get it right” when choosing your countertop edge and work with a Cincinnati countertop company that has the expertise to pull off the type of edge you want.
Mitered edges are commonly used to create a seamless flow from a countertop slab to a waterfall panel that extends to the floor. A mitered edge can also be used to add more stone to the underside of a countertop slab creating a distinguished look through the illusion of a thicker slab. If mitered edge granite is not what your looking for, we also offer mitered edge quartz as well.
Sometimes also called risers, waterfall edge refers to the way the countertop extend down the side of an island or cabinet, all the way to the floor. Waterfall edge countertops and islands will show off your choice like the piece of art it is, especially in open floor plans where your island can be seen from one or more rooms. Their sleek, clean lines complement both modern and traditional kitchen styles.

Mitered edges are becoming one of the most fashionable trends in countertops among Cincinnati homeowners today. Mitered edges exploded in popularity in California recently, and their reputation has started to extend to the rest of the country.
A mitered edge gives a seamless appearance between the top of the countertop and a second, vertical piece of stone that goes over the side to create a “wrapping” effect and produce a specialty edge. Mitered edges can also provide the appearance of a thicker countertop.
To produce a quality mitered edge, the countertop material must be perfectly cut at a 45-degree angle and flawlessly mounted for the stone pattern to remain uniform. Because of the complexity and precision of the cut, many countertop companies in the Cincinnati area do not offer mitered edges. But at Pure Granite & Stone, our expert countertop fabricators have mastered the mitered edge profile to provide you with the seamless appearance you’re looking for.
Waterfall edges (also called waterfall style, riser edges, and infinity edges) extend over the sides of the cabinet, often to the floor. This creates a seamless and uniform appearance throughout. The waterfall edge provides a one-of-a-kind look to cabinets, which is why they have exploded in popularity in recent years.
But waterfall edges aren’t just an ultra-modern décor choice—they’re also practical. Covering the sides of your wood cabinets in a durable surface like granite or quartz will protect them from scratching caused by the hustle and bustle of a busy household. A waterfall edge in a low-maintenance stone material such as granite will also make the sides of your cabinets easier to clean.
Waterfall edges are usually mitered, so they required a skilled hand to create cleanly. Fortunately, we have highly-skilled countertop fabricators on our team that can craft a perfect, seamless waterfall edge for you.
In a bevel edge, at least part of the edge is slanted. Bevel edges come in different sized angles, including 1/8 inch, 1/4 inch, and 1/2 inch. Larger bevel edges will reflect light more and create a big aesthetic impact. Smaller bevel edges are for a more formal and classic look.
Bullnose edges have a rounded shape on at least one side of the edge. There are demi bullnose edges (where the top of the edge is rounded and the bottom is straight) and full bullnose edges (where the top and bottom of the edge are rounded). Homeowners choose bullnose edges when they want a seamless “flowing” effect that the roundness of the bullnose edge produces. Also note: if you have children, a bullnose edge is one of the safest edge profiles from which to choose. Its rounded corners can help prevent injury.
Square edges can come in either sharp 45-degree corners on the top and bottom, or in an eased edge, which has softly rounded edges but yet still have a square appearance. Square edges are flat in the middle, small around the top, and small around the bottom. This is a timeless edge profile that often comes standard in many countertop installations.
Ogee edges are tiered edges with a distinct flowing pattern. The top of the edge curves down and out to the second level of the edge, which stands out farther than the edge on top. This is a popular upgraded edge profile because it really formats the space and provides a unique appearance. To select the right type of ogee edge for your tastes and room, it’s best to consult with a countertop design expert. They will help guide you to the right choice.
