Tour This Artful & Sophisticated Modern Townhouse

Aria Stone Gallery Sea Pearl Quartzite Kitchen

Designed by a fashion and art buff, this townhouse is stylish with impeccable attention to detail with plenty of show-stopping natural stone design. Each room is styled using cool, neutral tones and plenty of natural light.On the main floor, the spacious living room opens up to the island and breakfast bar, featuring Aria Stone Gallery’s Sea Pearl quartzite. The mitered, waterfall edge on the island has complimentary hues to the artwork found in the living room. The modern, white kitchen cabinets offer an abundance of storage in this vertical layout.Off to the side of the kitchen is a powder room. The silver walls and simple, modern sconces set the stage for the floating Arabescato Orobico sink.

Moving on to our favorite room of the house, the upstairs closet. The second bedroom was converted into this fantastic walk in closet and a clever office space. The closet features a glowing, illuminated shoe wall and plenty of cubbies for accessory storage. A large painting was hung on a track that conceals seasonal items and suitcases. Honestly, who wouldn’t want to get ready for their day around all of this beauty.

The Master bathroom is a pure-white haven, clean and simple. The homeowner chose a Bianco Extra Marble countertop with his-and-hers sinks with simple modern finishings.

To wrap up this stunning perfection is the guest bathroom. This space may be small, but it is certainly not short on style. The Arabescato Orobico vanity is complete with a waterfall edge, which pairs nicely to the grey glass subway tile shower.

On the Edge: Mitered Edge & Waterfall Edge Countertops

When choosing an edge style for your countertop, table or bar, deciding on the right design can be intimidating at first. There are endless edge options for all applications and materials, but a mitered edge has become very popular among designers and homeowners due to their sleek, modern look.

What Is a Mitered Edge?

A mitered edge is created when the corners of two slabs are cut to a 45 degree angle to seamlessly join together. A mitered edge comes in handy when you would like the appearance of a thicker countertop, waterfall island, or custom trough sink.

When you see an extra thick countertop, it is probably not an 8cm or 3 inch thick slab. Rather, you are looking at a mitered edge that was flawlessly fabricated to look as if the veining “wraps” around the edges.

Using a mitered edge is a great way to make your countertops the focal point of the space as it will instantly create a luxurious and expensive feel. This technique can also be used in reverse to create custom built in sinks, cabinets, or other features.
