From Basic to Bold: Customizing Your Granite Countertops: Edge Profiles, Thickness, and More!

Congratulations! You’ve decided to elevate your kitchen or bathroom with stunning granite countertops. But wait, the journey has just begun!  Granite countertops offer a surprising level of customization, allowing you to create a look that’s uniquely yours. At RSK Stone, your one-stop shop for countertop design and installation, we’re here to guide you through the exciting world of granite countertop customization.

Edge Profiles: The Finishing Touch

The edge profile you choose can dramatically impact the overall look and feel of your countertops. Here are a few popular options to consider:

  • Eased Edge: A classic, slightly rounded edge that offers a clean and timeless look.
  • Bullnose Edge: A smooth, curved edge that adds a touch of softness and elegance.
  • Chiseled Edge: A more rustic option with a slightly rough, textured finish.
  • Waterfall Edge: A luxurious edge where the countertop material continues down the front of the cabinets, creating a seamless waterfall effect.


Finding Your Perfect Thickness

Granite countertops come in a variety of thicknesses, each offering advantages:

  • 3/4″ Inch: The industry standard, this thickness is a good choice for most applications.
  • 1 1/4″ Inch: A thicker profile that adds a more substantial and luxurious feel. Ideal for larger kitchens or bathroom vanities.
  • 2 Inch: The ultimate statement piece, a 2-inch granite countertop exudes grandeur and unmatched durability.

Don’t Forget the Backsplash!

The perfect complement to your granite countertops is a beautiful backsplash.  Granite itself can be used for the backsplash, or you can choose from a variety of other materials like tile, glass, or even mosaic accents.
