In this family-focused kitchen design, a waterfall edge on one end of an island bench creates an interesting (and useful) asymmetrical shape

“With four kids in the house, it was important the kitchen be durable and easy to keep clean. That was part of the reason for the dark woodgrain finish for the cabinets.

The other reason was to provide a nice contrast with the light-grey tiled flooring, white walls, benchtop and overhead cabinets. The metallic glass splashback ties in nicely with the floor tiles and stainless-steel appliances while adding another dimension to the design.

It was also important to have a large island to allow for both casual dining and food preparation, as it is the main benchtop space. Having the stone waterfall on only one end of the bench allows plenty of seating to wrap around the other end and along the front.

The stone overhang adds interest and changes the shape of the island from the typical solid rectangle. It helps remove some of the bulk, considering its size. There are plenty of drawers to make the most of storage space, plus a large pantry located just off the kitchen behind a cavity sliding door.”
