profiles that make a Bold statement

A mitered edge gives the appearance of a thicker countertop for a crisp, clean edge. This is a stunning option to showcase the bold veining of designs like BRITTANICCA.

Edge: Rimrock
The Rimrock countertop edge profile, also known as a mitered edge, is assembled from two pieces. This adds a weighty appearance to the design without requiring a heavier or thicker countertop. Cambria’s proprietary techniques combine the two pieces for a cohesive look. This edge is made from 6mm, 1cm, 2cm, 3cm, 4cm, or 6cm stone that is mitered to the desired height for the thicker edge aesthetic.
