Waterfall Countertop Ideas

Waterfall kitchen countertops are a trend that is here to stay. They suit modern, vintage, Scandinavian and many other kitchen styles, adding a sophisticated touch to each of them. Granite, concrete, quartz, glass, wood – there are many ideas that you can try. But this is not the only reason to choose such countertops for your kitchen, I can give you many more!


A waterfall countertop perfectly conceals appliances and miscellaneous items, giving your kitchen island a cool, clean and uncluttered look. It has a frame over the cabinets that tidies up the space, which is essential for open plan layouts. Another benefit is durability: common endplates are often scratched by pets, children, and clumsy adults, but this doesn’t happen with waterfall tops. Just choose a durable material like granite or quartz and you won’t remember this problem.

A waterfall countertop is a great way to showcase the perfect exotic or unique natural stone you wish to decorate with. Choose an open floor plan to make the countertop visible from other rooms. It will be a focal point of your kitchen and a touch of luxury.

When you have a modern kitchen, clean lines and angles should be a priority. A waterfall countertop has a strong 90 degree angle on both sides, adding symmetry and a cool statement to your kitchen.


You can choose between glass, different types of stone and wood to complete your kitchen look and make the decor stand out.

Granite, marble and quartz countertops add a special charm to the wooden cabinets, making them look cleaner and more edgy. And of course showing off the texture and veining of your flagstone stone is a cool idea.

Reclaimed and weathered wood brings a raw and rustic feel to your kitchen. Sleek, contemporary wood countertops add no less modern flair than concrete or stone.

Tempered glass with unique patterns can add a unique aesthetic to the kitchen, although not as durable, it looks amazing.

If you want something different, make a waterfall countertop to show off the intricate patterns of stone, wood, and glass for maximum appeal in your kitchen.
