Natural Stone Edge Treatments

Edge Treatments

Your choice of an edge is no small detail. A proper edge profile adds impact to the beauty of a natural stone slab surface and helps integrate it into the overall design of the room. Consider the space where the slab will be used. If soft, rounded corners are common, consider using rounded edges like a bullnose or pencil edge to tie things together. If straight lines are predominate, then squared-off edges could be used – straight, beveled and chamfer edges are all possibilities. Roman O’gee and other specialty edges often compliment cabinet trim or other architectural details.

With the right edge detail, your slab is sure to make a striking and lasting impression. Edges are available in a variety of thicknesses – ranging from 3/4" (2cm) and 1-1/4" (3cm) thick to 1-1/2" (4cm) laminated. Check with your local fabricator for more information regarding edge treatments.
