To polish off your new granite kitchen countertop, you have a choice in bevel shapes that can be cut into the stone. While a squared-off (straight) bevel is always popular, there are a number of other choices on this page that may tend to complement your other décor and add a bit more elegance to the kitchen.
You have a wide selection of rounded, bullnose and ogee edge finishes to choose from. When considering the bevel finish, think about the “look” of your kitchen. Are your cabinets and cabinet doors going to be sharp-edged? You may want to stick to a straight-edge bevel. Or, are your cabinets and doors going to be rounded, or have an inset/outset that features a rounded design? In that case, you have a number of bevel choices that might closely match the bevel finishes of your cabinetry.
Another thing to consider is the pattern in your floor. For example, if you choose tile with a swirl pattern, a rounded bevel could be a good option for the countertop. However, granite countertop bevels are rather subtle – you can be safe in choosing any style you want since the bevel will not overwhelm any other part of your kitchen.
