How do I use waterfall kitchen islands in an open plan?

  

If you have an open plan living area, or are considering creating one through a renovation—you should consider how to make the kitchen and adjacent dining area visually cohesive. One way to do that is with a waterfall kitchen island, which in addition to blending the kitchen and dining areas, also makes an elegant design statement.

A waterfall is when the counter material continues down the sides of the cabinets, usually on both ends—but it can be on just one—creating a cascading effect with the countertop material.

The countertop becomes a sculptural object, it is particularly striking in marble, granite, or quartzite. But other stones and even wood can be used. The countertops on traditional kitchen islands often extend beyond the cabinets the below so people can sit and eat at the island. But that can create an awkward look, with the corners of the counter sticking out into space.
