A waterfall worktop is quickly becoming the must have look for any kitchen this year. This is a kitchen worktop that extends over the edge of the cabinets, and stretched down to the floor, bringing a range of advantages. Not only is this stylish and visually attractive, it’s also practical and protective too. But what should you consider when choosing waterfall worktops for kitchen islands? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design professionals, and this is our guide to everything you should know about waterfall worktops.
Considerations for choosing waterfall worktops for kitchen islands
If you are thinking of using a waterfall worktop for your kitchen island, there are a number of things to take into account. These include:
- the worktop colour
- the worktop material
Worktop colour for waterfall worktops
Because waterfall worktops involve extending the worktop all the way down the sides of the cabinet, to the floor, choosing the perfect colour for this worktop is paramount. While you might be tempted to use the same worktop colour and style as is used throughout the rest of your kitchen, you can actually mix and match instead. Why not use a colour that will contrast or stand out from the rest of the kitchen, creating a stunning visual effect. Neutral colours can also be a very effective option, for both contemporary or traditional kitchens.
Worktop material for waterfall worktops
Additionally, you will need to consider what type of material to use for your waterfall worktops. These typically are effective in acrylic or vinyl, and this will probably be a cheaper option too. However natural wood or wood effect is also a popular option, adding a natural touch to your kitchen design. Alternatively, for larger budgets, solid surface materials can be used to great effect.
