Don’t be afraid of Curves as they are popular when it comes to Kitchen Islands! A Curved Island adds some softness to sharp lines and corners that are often made up of a modern Kitchen. And if you really want to highlight your Curves, it’s best to make your Curves a feature in a contrasting material and or colour to the rest of your Kitchen.
Afraid of making your Curves look outdated? Then opt for modern materials such as fluting, timber or marble on your Curves. Not only are they practical to help create the Curve shape, but they will also add a touch of modern sleekness to your Kitchen. And if you aren’t looking at renovating your whole Kitchen or don’t want to change your joinery, then change your top only and have a Curved return. This is still in keeping with the whole Curved Trend but won’t be as expensive or extensive by changing your top only.
Tip: Since your Curved Island is in a Kitchen, you want to make sure the choice of coating and material is suitable to be around spills and stains. If you are adding timber to your Curved Island, then you want to make sure you coat it with a timber coating to keep it waterproof and protected. We suggest either using a clear coating to enhance the natural beauty of your chosen timber, or if you want to change the colour then use a timber stain. Otherwise paint is also another option for protection and if you are wanting some colour. We suggest using a water based enamel such as Dulux Aquanamel, Haymes Ultra Trim or Porters Aqua Satin or Gloss as these are chip resistant and harder wearing than wall paint. If you have laminate and wanting to paint this, it still can be done but before you apply the water based enamel top coat, you will need to give it a light sand and then use a special undercoat such as Dulux Precision Maximum Strength Adhesion Primer to make sure the paint will stick.
