The beautiful marble look of Cambria is the main element in this modern kitchen design. It is used as a full high backsplash to have the unique pattern of the mountain peak covered with snow. The same engineered stone is also used as the waterfall edge island countertop. To show the stone’s attraction, the island top has no sink, no stovetop, or additional functionality. Recess lighting is also focusing on the Cambria stone.

Eternity effect in a two-tone transitional kitchen: The eternity effect can be provided in different ways in your kitchen remodeling project. Using vertical lines is one of them. This example contains two of the vertical lines; Vertical subway backsplash layout and vertical long metal handle on the cabinet doors. The second idea is to have the waterfall edge island in the kitchen. In this way, you can keep the eternity effect. The third way is adding the perforated glass or clear acrylic glass into the design. Here, the perforated glass-raised breakfast bar is one of the greatest examples. For sure the designer’s point of view is pretty wide to apply this effect.

This kitchen remodeling steals my heart. The balance between the colors and the balance between the patterns are just right to have a clean and simple look but sophisticated as well. Dark cabinets are in harmony with the island waterfall edge countertops. The floor seems like a travertine flooring and also bonds well with the Cambria countertops. Nailed and upholstered counter height chairs are very classy.

Chalet Style kitchen is the trickiest design and if you are not in good hands the result is not satisfactory. The angles on the ceiling can either turn your kitchen remodeling into a disaster or as a miracle. I can see the miracle of contemporary design here. Let me walk you through the ceiling to the bottom; the bright white ceiling is the right choice for a chalet-style design. The large kitchen recessed lights are a good addition. The eye-level wall cabinets are the best decision for the Chalet Style design. I think the cabinet height is 36 inches for this project. The bamboo cabinets always have wonderful subtle inserts for any design. Here they combined well with white three-dimensional backsplash tiles and quartz insert. Engineered stone also served as a waterfall edge kitchen island and took all attention and nobody noticed the dead angles on the ceilings. The burnt bamboo color laminate flooring completes all the pictures. Double high five to the designer.

Craftsman style kitchen which collects the best elements together: First of all, if there is a corner window in the kitchen, this corner is booked for a corner sink. This hint works for all sizes of kitchens. Unfortunately, corner sinks are smaller than the regular sinks and the corner sink won’t let enough stepping area. The designer solved this problem by going to recessed corner sink cabinets. The benefit is definitely a wider sink. Since it is a step in position the countertop needs to be beveled. Here the countertop is ended with a half waterfall edge which provides the continuity look in the design. and also combine well with the kitchen island top which has a mitered edge as well. Let me take your attention to the wall cabinets; white wall cabinets are handle-free. If life gives you free cabinets in the kitchen, it means you should focus on your meditation. The less crowd in the big picture the better. Let me talk about the kitchen island: I really admired the out of box thinking of the designer. Usually, the curved kitchen island is like a quarter circle, or an arch piece to make the inward and outward curves. But the designer kept the convex part inside the rectangle island. This opens more square feet of space in the layout. Hats off design.
Material Selection For Waterfall Countertop Edge Island
The waterfall edge kitchen island is a visual treat therefore the right material selection for the island top affects the end result.
The soapstone, granite, Silestone, quartz, wood, and Caesarstone would be easily applied to the kitchen island. In some cases, waterfall edge kitchen islands can connect to a perforated glass or driftwood to make a raised breakfast bar or to have a gathering table.
Design Selection For Waterfall Edges
Luckily, this wonderful design element goes well with any design. The only difficulty comes with the patterned countertops. To match the patterns on both sides needs artisan labor and also increases the cost of the material and labor.
Hope you like my pictures and they will be inspirational for your next kitchen remodeling by adding a mitered edge kitchen island.
