Waterfall Edge Granite Countertops

The Most Desired Kitchen Upgrade for Your Fall & Holiday Entertainment

Our customers are falling head over heels for the hot new look of a waterfall edge countertop. The amazing, clean-lined look of a beautiful waterfall edge countertop provides a huge style statement and a wow factor every time you and your guests enter your kitchen.

With the fall home remodel season approaching, it's’ a great time to talk about the latest highly coveted kitchen upgrade. And since the holidays are coming soon, you’ll want to consider this clean, gorgeous look for your new kitchen upgrade.

There was a time when granite countertops covered your kitchen cabinets from edge to edge with only a slight overhang. Some countertops included a larger extension that allowed for bar-height seating and dining. Today’s dream kitchen remodels include a crisp, clean extension of your countertop all the way from edge to floor, called a waterfall edge countertop.

Waterfall edge countertops (sometimes called risers) are more than just a passing trend. This new kitchen upgrade style is here to stay. More than just an aesthetic feature, there are also several practical reasons to choose a waterfall edge countertop for your kitchen update.

  1. Waterfall edge countertops are safer for small children than traditional countertops with edges that stick out.
  2. Waterfall edge countertops create a big look in a small space.
  3. Your kitchen island, cabinets or workspace becomes a work of art.
  4. Waterfall edge countertops add balance and symmetry to your kitchen space.
  5. Waterfall edge countertops create a focal point in your kitchen.
  6. A waterfall edge island can provide a contrast to other countertop surfaces in your kitchen.
  7. Waterfall edge countertops work well with modern, contemporary, transitional, and traditional kitchens.
  8. Oversized islands with a waterfall edge increase your kitchen’s functionality and entertainment options.
  9. In a monochromatic design scheme, your waterfall edge countertop flows seamlessly to the floor tiles.
  10. Waterfall edge countertops protect from scratches, spills, and splashes.
  11. Waterfall edge countertops conceal appliances and provide a cohesive look.
  12. A waterfall edge countertop can lighten up a space with dark cabinets and flooring.
  13. Waterfall edge countertops are also a great way to show off an unusual or exotic stone.
