Corner Options



Quality in Counters will assist you in selecting the best corner radius for your project.

The "radius" refers to the sharpness of the angle that forms the corner.  A somewhat rounded radius is best for exposed corners.  It creates a beautiful appearance and adds to safety, particularly in high-traffic areas.

Standard Corners

For exposed countertop corners, our Standard 1/4" Radius is generally ideal.  It works well with all materials and provides a superb aesthetic line.

For practical reasons, a 90 degree radius corner is routinely used on the countertop edge where it meets a backsplash or wall.








Custom Corners

Custom corner radius designs can add versatility and interest to your project.  For a standard 1-1/2" countertop overhang, the maximum radius that can be used is the 1" radius (see below). 

A custom corner design we created is shown in the photo at the right.  The kitchen's base cabinets were bumped out at a certain location, so we designed the countertop's corners to gracefully integrate with the cabinet line.
