If you love relaxed open-plan living spaces, a curved kitchen could be perfect for you. Here are a few benefits of this kitchen design trend…

At the recent Decorex at Gallagher Convention Centre, visitors were introduced to the curved kitchen cabinetry trend by Curves & Bevels Designer Kitchens installation.

“Trends are not necessarily limited to strictly linear lines, rather edges are softened by carefully placed curves. The geometry of the design makes the kitchen a showpiece, which fits into the open-living feature of the modern kitchen design,” says Ann-Donne Strydom of Curves & Bevels Designer Kitchens.

“This particular design caters to a broad range of functions. It is ergonomically designed to accommodate food preparation with the kitchen adjacent to a dining area so that the space is functional for open-plan living and entertainment,” says Strydom.

5 Benefits of a curved kitchen

According to the Curves & Bevels Designer Kitchens team, these are the top five benefits of curved kitchen cabinetry:

1. Create a relaxed environment

Countryside hills, rolling waves… these gentle images reflect the curved design that makes the modern kitchen such a relaxing space.

Subconsciously we associate sharp, defined edges with danger, whereas rounded edges bring about a sense of calm which makes the curved kitchen design a much more relaxing environment.

2. Suited to open-plan living

The trend of open-plan living continues in the modern kitchen design which sees the kitchen as a focal point for family engagement and social entertainment.

The curved design is particularly well-suited to this inviting style with kitchen diners and breakfast bars gaining in popularity.
