One of our favorite kitchen countertop trends right now is what we call the Waterfall Edge, also known as Risers. This is when the countertop continues vertically down the side of the cabinet to the floor.


The Waterfall edge is a great way to show off an exotic and unique stone.

When using quartz it gives any kitchen a sleek and modern look.


Be sure to use an experienced and reputable fabricator when using the Waterfall edge.  It is a difficult design element to fabricate and definitely requires skill and experience.
