Mitred Edge

Mitred Edge

A mitred edge in a worktop seamlessly joins two stone pieces at a 45-degree angle, creating a thicker look. It’s also used for upstands, corners and niche pieces in various materials. Mitred edges are prevalent for a clean, seamless appearance.

Mitred Edge Worktops

The function of mitred edges for worktops is to create a seamless and luxurious appearance, giving the illusion of a thicker slab of natural or engineered stone. Once two or more edges are cut at 45-degree angles, stonemasons connect the pieces at a 90-degree edge, resulting in a seamless continuation from one surface to the other. Mitred edging allows the design of continuous veining and patterns, providing a highly aesthetic feature to the kitchen worktops.
