Waterfall Countertops: Exciting New Designs

Whoever coined the term “waterfall countertops” for, well, waterfall countertops, needs a lot more recognition! At first sight of such a countertop, the term may not cross your mind. After you see it though, you can’t unsee it. Waterfall countertops are conceptually exactly what their name suggests, and they’re one of the cooler kitchen design innovations in recent times.

Waterfall countertops come in all shapes and sizes, and can be made out of almost any existing material found in pretty much every kitchen design, new and old. Great, right? Why then is there such a craze around waterfall countertops? Why have they become so trendy? Here are some exciting new waterfall countertop designs to help us answer these questions:

First, What They Are

Touching on the exciting new waterfall countertop designs won’t make much sense without first understanding what they are. Conventional countertops usually consist of a slab (think marble) resting on top of base cabinetry. With waterfall countertops, the edges of the countertop simulate a waterfall, in which they don’t end or hang, but angle 90 degrees toward the floor and continue down the side of whatever it is the countertop rests on, be it cabinetry, seating, or other. Pretty simple, right? 

Quartz Waterfalls

When it comes to beauty and aesthetics, the countertop design pyramid peaks with stone. However, some stones, like granite, are incredibly difficult to shape and adjust, often cracking and bowing. Though Quartz is made up of 90% natural quartz, it’s man made, and the manufacturing process gives Quartz the versatility to be able to change planes and achieve the waterfall look. This makes Quartz one of the top choices for waterfall countertops. Check out this one.

Waterfall Islands

Of course, the exciting new waterfall countertop trends quickly found their way to being combined with other current kitchen design trends, like the kitchen island. A key feature to any kitchen island is its countertop, whether the countertop is flat at one height, or has different levels at different heights. Either way, take one side of the countertop whichever direction it extends to, for example, offer seating, and turn it into a waterfall! Makes sense, right? Here is a stylish example – scroll to #2.
