Give your kitchen a focal point and stay on trend by including a Waterfall Edge on your kitchen counter. Stonaa are experts in creating and helping you choose the right style for you.
What is a Waterfall Edge?
A waterfall edge is a 90-degree angle at the end of the counter top. Rather than having the counter’s material have a finished edge, the material continues down the side of the cabinets towards the floor. It received its name as, you guessed it, it looks as if the counter is pouring off the edge like a waterfall.
A huge variety of different materials can be used to create a waterfall edge. But marble, granite, quartz, and concrete are some of the most popular. They look gorgeous and the fluidity of the counter makes a statement.
Benefits of a Waterfall Edge
They create a focal point
A waterfall edge instantly draws your eye. Have your kitchen be functional and look beautiful! Break away from the traditional hard-edge look.
The corners and sides of kitchen cabinets and islands can really be vulnerable between pets, kids, everyday use, and parties. A waterfall edge covers the corners and sides with a durable material, helping you avoid scuffs, scratches, and damage. It also makes your counter easier to clean and maintain.
They Offer Variety
There’s endless possibilities for creating a waterfall edge to match your kitchen’s aesthetic. Concrete and wood are newer on the waterfall market. Marble, quartz, granite, and travertine are all favourite options. You can also create a kitchen island without the need of cabinetry!
Different Waterfall Edge Materials To Consider
Granite is durable, has a very high heat resistance, is incredibly low maintenance, and will last lifetimes. It’s a go-to for countertops and is great to continue down your waterfall!
Quartz is nonporous and resistant to staining and scratching. Super easy to maintain, it’s fabulous for waterfalls.
Marble waterfalls look gorgeous and each one is unique. It can be heat and water proofed, but is less desirable than its counterparts as it is quite easy to scratch.
Perfect for strangely shaped forms are concrete waterfalls. Durable, heat resistant, and scratch resistant. Because of their weight, they are typically made and molded right in your kitchen.
Complete your contemporary or modern kitchen’s sleek and minimal look with a waterfall edge. The fluid, uniform appearance creates the illusion that the area is larger than it is. There’s a wide variety of styles available to suit your kitchen. Single side, double side, groove, or box are all popular choices. Or create something fully custom! Adapt the waterfall to suit an island with a raised bar extension, create a seating area, hide plumbing and electrical work, or integrate some shelving!
