Choose Your Overhang

Determine Your Countertop Overhang


When choosing a stone surface for your countertops, you will need to determine how much of an overhang you desire. GMSD’s standard overhang is approximately 1 1/2". This provides a slight "lip" that extends beyond the front of your cabinets. If you have space, and would like to create additional countertop space, you can extend your overhang. By adding another 8-12" to your overhang (provided you have adequate room), you can add valuable countertop space that can be used as an additional workspace or as a snack bar area. It is important to keep in mind that countertops with an overhang of 12” or greater may require additional support.
