Countertops in contemporary life serve both a functional and an aesthetic purpose. The right stone choice helps elevate the experience from just another kitchen or bathroom surface to a striking design element in the home.
We are often asked by our clients and design partners to help create a vibrant focal point in a newly-designed kitchen. One exciting option is to create a stone island built with a sleek waterfall-edge. While conventional countertops feature a single horizontal surface, the “waterfall” option provides a continuous style with a vertical drop that cascades the architectural stone from counter to floor.
Kitchen islands and countertops built using luminous stones can integrate LED lighting panels to create a backlit feature. This translucent design showcases the patterns, colors, and angular lines of the stone while adding warm and layered lighting effects.
