On the Edge of Glory: How to Select, Reshape, and Engrave Your Marble Countertop’s Edges

We find that not a lot of people know about marble countertop edges, which is why we’re here to clear up the issue.

Keep reading to find out how to select, reshape, and engrave your marble countertop’s edges.

How to Select Your Marble Countertop Edge

To follow are a few things to keep in mind when choosing marble countertop edges:

Your Design

It’s always nice when your countertop edges coincide with the rest of the room’s design. If your kitchen or bathroom is modern, then straight and quarter bevel edges work best. If you’re working with a traditional kitchen or bathroom, you might gravitate toward rounded edges.


If you’re working with an especially busy room, sharp edges aren’t always the best idea. Instead, use something rounded, like half or full bullnose. This is especially relevant if there are children in the home.

Your Preference

At the end of the day, you can do anything you want with your marble countertop—you can even mix up styles and designs if that’s what you have in mind. There are no rules that you absolutely must stick to. Instead, think of it as more of an art project to get creative with.


Make note of the fact that intricate edge styles are going to be harder to clean, no matter what. Simple designs are straightforward with their maintenance, which is why it’s a good idea to keep decorative edges in less-frequented areas of your home.

Reshaping the Edge

If you’re looking to reshape the edge of your marble countertop, our first suggestion is that you contact a professional—like our team here at Bellezza! We’d be happy to take another look at your countertop and make adjustments to ensure it’s exactly how you want it to be.

Engraving the Edge

With the risk of sounding like a broken record, we have to say that engraving is something you should highly consider getting done by a professional as well. It involves laser equipment that many people aren’t experienced with, and the last thing we want is for your stone to get damaged or even worse, for you to get hurt.
