Here at StoneWorks, we’ve been featuring waterfall counter tops on many of our recent, and more beautiful, kitchen projects.
Waterfall style countertops refers to the way the quartz, granite, or marble extends down the side of an island or cabinet, all the way to the floor. As kitchens become gathering places and bathrooms feel increasingly like personal spas, our most functional, practical rooms are trending towards greater sophistication. We believe that a waterfall countertop can be a stunning focal point, linking floor design with cabinetry in one dynamic sweep and elevating an ordinary island to the level of fancy furniture.
Once you find your perfect slab here at StoneWorks, you’ll want to feature it as much as possible. Waterfall counters will show off your choice like the piece of art that it is, especially in open floor plans where your island can be seen from one or more rooms.
Waterfall countertops add significance to your kitchen by creating a visually appealing focal point. Additionally, a waterfall edge design that flows down both sides of your kitchen island brings symmetry and balance to the space. Waterfall counters needn’t be relegated to strictly modern spaces. The mix of contemporary and traditional elements work together… their sleek, clean lines complement both modern and traditional kitchen styles. Don’t have an expansive space? No problem! You can still create a big impact in a small space with a waterfall edge countertop.
A waterfall can be helpful in covering cabinetry from splashes in areas like the bathroom. Waterfall edges cover cabinets and protect them from scratches, too. The overflowing design also conceals appliances and creates a calm, unified feel. Waterfall edges are safer for your little ones than countertops that jut out. If you have active children underfoot, a waterfall installation may be a good choice for your family.
Be sure to ask your StoneWorks designer about waterfall counter tops in your next kitchen project.
