Curved kitchens on trendThursday, 21 June 2012 12:31
Curved kitchen designs are on-trend for 2012 as people move away from angular shapes.
A curved kitchen is a good idea for families with young children because it takes away the risk of injury due to sharp bench-top corners and cabinetry edges.
But other than the practical reasons curved kitchens are also a design choice.
They offer a fresh new look and give the kitchen a character unlike the conventional angular designs.
Pictured is an example of a curved design called the Gala available from German kitchen manufacturer Schüller.
Notice the curve continues from one point in the wall to another creating a continuous line of vision and leading the eye out to the beautiful view.
The curve is also a softer line than angular cabinetry and helps to create the idea of space in rooms that are otherwise quite small.
This particular kitchen range has a multitude of cabinet heights, depths and widths with more than 250 door fronts.
This is because each client has a difference sized space and a different curve in mind and these pieces fit together to create a bespoke design.
To replicate this trend in your home first look at the space you have, the functionality you need and the look you want.
Choose a colour and work from here, but remember to have your curve directing the eye somewhere exciting, not into a dead corner.
