If you’re not sure what to imagine when we reference waterfall countertops, let us clear up the confusion. A waterfall countertop has a horizontal ledge that ends at a ninety-degree angle, then travels vertically to the floor. While this look adds a certain something to a modern kitchen, your kitchen doesn’t have to be sleek and sharp-cornered for the waterfall to work its magic.

If you’re like many of our customers, you’ll gravitate toward stone for this countertop, as stone comes in a variety of styles, designs, and patterns.
