For a sophisticated look, you can't go wrong with the classic ogee edge. Dress up your Quartzite countertop with this traditional edge profile that brings a touch of elegance to any kitchen or bath remodel. As you can see in this image of MSI's Allure Quartzite, the ogee edge draws attention to the movement and vivid coloration of the slab and provides a pleasing contrast to the clean lines of the shaker-style cabinetry.

With its elongated edge, the classic ogee profile is also fantastic for drawing attention to countertops with a rounded or organic shape, such as the Madreperola Quartzite slab shown here. The ogee edge also adds a bit of flair to a slab without a lot of color variance by giving it depth and visual interest.

One of the most dramatic edge profiles is the waterfall edge, as you can see in this image of Acquatic Quartzite by MSI. Waterfall edges are a beautiful way to showcase the movement and veining of your slab, while making a bold contemporary statement with your countertop design.
