Straight, clean lines: move over! Curves are in, and they’re showing up in every room of the house and every form. A curved feature softens the overall appearance of the home (as opposed to the severity of straight lines), resulting in an inviting, open, and dramatic effect.
Curvy design features can be the perfect solution to an awkward space; when done right, curves can even be a space-saving technique (though it’s counterintuitive). Bonus: if you have small children (or a tendency to bump into things), replacing your corners with curves will definitely cut down on the bruises and bumps. AND curves are a lot easier to clean than sharp corners!
Curves of all sizes and applications will beautify your home and set it apart from the typical linear layout.
Here’s three ways to incorporate curvature in your home:
A curved vanity, shower, sink, or tub creates more space in tight spaces and makes a boldly subtle statement; arched faucets in the kitchen and bath are simultaneously sleek, striking, and soft.
Like fixtures, curved furniture has an allure that straight lines simply don’t offer. Rounded seating also has the benefit of being more comfortable and ergonomically correct than linear furnishings. Get creative with curvy tables, kitchen islands, beds, ottomans… the possibilities are endless.
Actual curved flooring is risky, but rounded rugs and flooring patterns and transitions are deliciously different.
Walls, doors, stairs, and ceilings become showpieces when you put a bit of curve on them.
Embrace those curves!
