Angular kitchen cabinetry is being replaced by curved lines as a new design trend takes over.
If you are planning a kitchen re-fit or renovation take a look at the curved kitchen trend and you may be surprised at how useful the design can be.
A curved kitchen has three main benefits over an angular one.
Firstly, it 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.
Secondly, the curve is a softer line than angular cabinetry and helps to create the idea of space in rooms that are otherwise quite small or require a small kitchen unit
Finally curved kitchens are a design choice for those who want something unique and on-trend.
A kitchen is a difficult room to take a fresh approach on, but few people have a curved design in their home.
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.
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.
