Why we love waterfall style kitchen islands

Kitchen islands are definitely growing in popularity. They are not only a modern and stylish addition to your space, but they are also incredibly useful too. As they become more popular, new styles of islands start to pop up. One of these is the waterfall style.

Waterfall kitchen islands are those that have a worktop edge that flows over the side of the surface of the island, then continuing down to the floor. Kind of like a waterfall. You can choose to have the waterfall added to one side of the island, or both if you prefer a more balanced look.

Now you know more about the style of waterfall islands, let's take a look at why they have increased in popularity.

They look Beautiful!

Whilst an island in its most basic form looks beautiful in any kitchen, adding in a waterfall to the island only increases the beauty and ensures that it really does become an eye-catching focal point too. Ideal if you use your kitchen as a social space and want to impress your guests.

There are lots of colour combinations

Waterfall islands come in a number of colours and finishes. Which means that you can make it entirely your own. Not only is this great for reflecting your own personal sense of style. But it also helps to create drama and contrast too. Especially if you decide on a contrast of colour or finishes, which will come together to create an eye-catching look.

They are practical too

Of course, waterfall islands are clearly good from a design point of view, but this is not the only benefit and positive that they have. One of the main reasons that they are a great add in to your kitchen is that they give you some additional space that you can use as a seating space or perhaps even somewhere to eat. Depending on the overhang of the waterfall part of the worktop, you may be able to fit some stools underneath, which means that guests, family or anyone who happens to be in your garden can take a seat.

As you can see, there are a variety of reasons why a waterfall kitchen island might be just what you are looking to add to your space. Of course, you are going to need a kitchen that is large enough to accommodate an island and you are going to need to make sure that you speak to an expert about what is achievable in your kitchen too.

That way you can have a kitchen island that not only looks great, but that adds in some functionality to your kitchen too.
