Why We Love Waterfall Countertops

May 16, 2018

When you’re building or renovating your dream kitchen there are many design factors to consider but one of the biggest decisions to make has to be the choice of countertop. If you’re looking to create a beautiful focal point in your kitchen, we’re here to suggest opting for a waterfall island and tell you why…

A Waterfall Island Creates A Stunning Focal Point

Your kitchen should be both beautiful and functional and there’s no denying that a waterfall edge creates a show stopping focal point in any kitchen. Whether your material is a simple white quartz juxtaposed with a rich wood island or a gorgeous marble or granite with veining that adds character, by showcasing a large slab of your stone of choice a waterfall edge is guaranteed to draw attention in all the right ways!

Say Goodbye to Scuffed End Panels

Another great benefit to a stone waterfall edge is saying goodbye to scuffed and scratched end panels! The end panel of most kitchen islands tend to take a bit of a beating between kids and pets, guests and entertaining it’s easy for the wear and tear to take its toll. With a strong stone, you’ll avoid those scratches and scuffs and have a solid surface that’s easy to wipe clean!

Say Hello to a Crisp, Clean Look

One of the benefits of a waterfall edge is the crisp, clean look the space gets once it’s installed. Waterfall edges visually hide appliances and bring in a larger natural element which creates a more visually appealing space overall. The clean edges are minimalist and modern so if a more contemporary style of kitchen is your style, we can’t recommend this kitchen upgrade enough!
