What is a Chamfered Edge?

A chamfered edge is a symmetrical sloping edge that cuts off the sharp 90-degree corner, giving the worktop a refined look. It’s a subtle detail that adds elegance and sophistication to your granite worktop.

Why Choose a Chamfered Edge?

  • Safety: The sloped edge reduces the risk of chipping and makes it safer for households with children.
  • Aesthetics: The chamfered edge adds a sleek, modern look to the worktop.
  • Ease of Cleaning: The slope makes it easier to clean crumbs and spills.

The Technicalities of Crafting a Chamfered Edge

Creating a chamfered edge requires precision and expertise. The process involves:

  1. Templating: Accurate measurements are taken to ensure a perfect fit.
  2. Cutting: Specialized saws are used to cut the granite slab.
  3. Profiling: The edge is crafted using advanced machinery to achieve the chamfered profile.
  4. Polishing: The edge is then polished to match the surface finish.
