What is a countertop edge profile?

Finding your Cambria edge profile
With 19 CAMBRIA EDGE PROFILES, there’s an option for every aesthetic from contemporary to traditional. Because Cambria’s quartz designs infuse veining, movement, and tones throughout the slab, the beauty of your design will carry through any edge profile you choose.
Fully and partially rounded edges add subtle softness to a space. The smooth detailing can make for a comfortable dining area at an island or add contrast to angular fixtures.
The Piedmont edge profile is softly rounded on the top edge. You may also hear it referred to as a Demi Bullnose, ½ Bullnose, or a ¼ Round. This edge is available in 2cm, 3cm, and 4cm thickness.
The Volcanic edge profile is fully rounded at the top and bottom of the edge. This edge style is sometimes called a Bullnose or Full Bullnose. This edge is available in 2cm, 3cm, 4cm, and 6cm thickness.
A hand-chiseled edge adds dynamic texture and a rustic look. The edge is not glossy and feels rugged to the touch.
This Cambria edge profile is hand-finished for a natural, rustic appearance. You may hear the Moraine edge profile called a Chiseled Edge, Broken Edge, or Rock Face. This edge is available in 2cm, 3cm, 4cm, and 6cm thickness.
Edges with ornate or cascading movement offer a sophisticated look for traditional spaces.
The Bryn edge profile is a traditional design with a twist. Often called a Reverse Waterfall, this edge is available in 4cm thickness.
The Rimrock 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.

A crisp, square-cut edge is straightforward, versatile, and modern—ideal for contemporary and transitional kitchens.
The Ridgeline edge profile is simple and bold. Ridgeline is available in 2cm, 3cm, 4cm, and 6cm thickness.
