We offer kitchens suitable for any home, traditional or contemporary. And this is our guide to everything you should know about worktop edge options for your kitchen.
What are the different options for kitchen worktop edges?
There are a number of different options for the edges of your kitchen worktop. These options include:
- Pencil edges
- Bevel edges
- Bullnose edges
Pencil edges for kitchen worktops
Available as single pencil or double pencil edges, this type of edge for your kitchen worktop is very popular. With a slight angular edge that rounds into the vertical surface, this can be a good option for family kitchens, as it limits the amount of sharp edges. A double pencil edge rounds both the top and bottom corners, while the single pencil edging only rounds the top corner.
Bevel edges for kitchen worktops
This type of edge has a flattened corner at around a 45 degree angle, with the bottom corner coming to a point. This is a good way to add detail to any kitchen, and is mostly used for traditional style kitchens.
Bullnose edges for kitchen worktops
Bullnose edges are completely rounded creating an almost complete curve at the edge of your worktop. This is a stylish design often used in contemporary and traditional kitchens alike. This is also an effective option for family kitchens.
