Waterfall countertop

    Waterfall Countertop

    A countertop where the surface material goes past the edge and continues as a vertical surface. This continuous flow of material, whether stone or acrylic creates a “waterfall effect”.

    Waterfall countertops look dramatic in any kitchen despite their simplicity. These are usually an option for kitchen islands, however, a single waterfall edge can attach directly to a wall or at the end of a U-shaped counter area. This choice costs more since the surface material is additional custom work and certain materials like marble have to be cut exact dimensions. The benefits are a bold look in your kitchen space as well as a vertical surface that as the same cleaning needs as your countertop. Stone materials with organic patterns like marble or granite are popular choices, followed closely by solid colors such as black or white.
