Standard Edges and Upgraded Edges
1. Eased Edge
The most basic countertop edge is the eased or straight edge It is a squared edge, with only a very slight bevel and it takes the sharpness from the corners. In addition, the quarter round is a popular modification. Here, the top edge is rounded off. The double quarter round is another possibility. Both, the top and bottom edges are rounded.
2. Half Bullnose Edge
The bullnose variation is where the top edge is rounded dramatically, whereas the bottom is not.
3. Full Bullnose Edge
Full bullnose converts the edge of the countertop to a perfect half-circle. So the countertop is rounded on top and bottom.
