House Rules Grand Final: why Wendy loves a curve
Tim & Mat’s curved kitchen island thrilled Wendy in the House Rules warehouse renovation. Here's why.
Nothing says bespoke like a curved edge, and the kitchen island in the Grand Final renovation on House Rules is a testament to the movement towards considered design. Taking influences from the grand old days of Art Deco design, curved finishes are making a huge comeback.
Getting it right can be a challenge however and there’s a lot to consider when designing a curved detail in either cabinetry or masonry when renovating. Here’s the trick to making it work:
Choose one feature piece in the room to ‘own’ the curve
Balance the feature curve with soft edges in other areas of the room
Contrast the curve with a sharp edge - this accentuates the elegance of the line and prevents the room from tipping into space-age bubble style
