As one of the most important aesthetic additions to contemporary kitchen or bathroom designs, the waterfall countertop grabs attention for the space that it’s in – serving as the ultimate “wow factor”. Rather than stopping at the edge of an island cabinet, a waterfall countertop drops down vertically at the sides. The design aspect makes a 90-degree angle at the countertop edge and creates a continuous flow of dramatic natural stone on display, all the way down to the floor.
Often crafted from high-quality materials like granite, marble, or quartz, waterfall countertops are often used mainly for appearance. Their minimal look and sleek appearance often contribute to contemporary interior designs.
The waterfall countertops also allow designers to stay away from the typical hard-edge designs, and their functionality means that the unwanted scratches or knicks that usually end up in most kitchens from children, pets, or other guests.
While the pricing upfront is more expensive than a typical countertop design, in the long run, you’ll actually be saving money, because there will be no need to be concerned about resealing the surface which other designs require up to twice a year.
