The Beautiful Waterfall Edge

One of my favorite looks is what we call the "Waterfall" edge. This is when the countertop continues down the side of the cabinet to the floor. It makes the countertop appear monolithic.
It's finally becoming pretty popular around here and that makes me so happy!

The first three photos are from the same house from our portfolio. The countertops are white quartz. This is my absolute favorite kitchen in our portfolio.


The next two photos are from CaesarStone's website.

The photo below from Ikea Fans is marble.


I should have done the design below in my own powder bath, I LOVE it! The photo is from Great Interior Design.
The countertop below from Styles Kitchen & Bath is beautiful Chroma Quartz.

That is one of my all-time favorite counter effects of all time. Did you ever see the cascading, multiple waterfalls (I call 'em risers) I designed last year? Excuse while I post a link back to myself.

That's done in white Silestone and because it's pure white and finding the identical color epoxy is impossible, that material can't be seamed apparently. That same color matching problem is why I couldn't use a back miter edge to make it appear to be thicker. Instead I special ordered 4cm material. Oh amn, I could go on for days about the things I learned from this job!

I hadn't seen your waterfall/riser job until now! It's killer, I LOVE it! I wish someone would give us the opportunity to do a job like this. I'm forwarding the link to everyone at our company, they are going to go nuts. We're geeks like that. :)
