10 curvaceous kitchen islands for a softer scheme that flows

A curved kitchen island often feels more inviting and sociable than a squared one, but it can also enhance the organic flow of a space and bring an extra layer of sophistication. We round up 10 beautiful designs.

1. Tom Howley's Shaker-style Devine collection, pictured here in Marjoram, is perfect for period-style properties. The curved, symmetrical central island featuring a hob represents an elegant twist on a classic design, and features plenty of clever storage options complete with curved doors.

2. London-based kitchen company PAD answered the client’s kitchen design brief using Chester cabinetry from PAD's Belgravia Collection which was lacquered in a Eucalyptus colour tone and partnered with Bianco Extra quartz worktops​. The curved island that can comfortably seat up to 4 people adds a softer tone to the design and features a range of storage cabinets, an integrated Belfast-style sink and a boiling water tap.

3. Mixing up materials in a dynamic way is guaranteed to create interest in a kitchen design – here a panel in Iron Pyrite, also known as fool’s gold, offers a metallic lustre and pale brass-yellow hue – ideal for adding some shine and radiance to a kitchen island front or splashback. The natural stone from Cullifords works well with the dark tiles on the curved end and wood effect finish on the door fronts.

4. The distinctive flowing Arkè Shape kitchen island by Pedini features a Lapitec worktop with an Avana Vesuvio finish, a Carbone Veneered Oak snack bar, and base units in Matt Lacquered Canapa 6401. The tall units behind the island are shown in Carbone Veneered Oak.

5. This curved and reeded island is without doubt the most captivating feature of this Art-Deco style kitchen. Featuring hidden storage and room for a breakfast bar and stools, this piece is perfect for socialising, whilst providing plenty of extra work surface. The island is painted in Little Greene Aquamarine Deep 198 and topped with Caesarstone 4023 Topus Concrete, complementing the overall ambience of the design.

6. This island design in a scheme by Sheraton Interiors features a vertical fluted front with cylinder-shaped columns that give it a sculptural appearance in a matt finish, which is a reflection of its modern design, handmade in solid tulipwood. The Diespeker terrazzo worktops are both durable as well as stylish and playful.

7. Here the curved River White quartz worktop from CRL Stone takes the user comfortably from the cooking zone to the dining and socialising area. The surface features an elegant marble-effect pattern of whites, greys and browns, and is repeated on the splashback for a seamless finish. Durable and easy to maintain, it is a practical kitchen surface and a luxurious alternative to natural stone.

8. Curved corners and fluted fronts add that extra touch of standout luxury, delivering spaces that are both elegant and unique. Here, Marron Imperial marble from Cullifords makes a distinguished statement, contrasting – but not clashing – with the crisp white cabinetry and surrounding scheme.

9. The Myers Touch redesigned the ground floor layout of this family home to create a large kitchen-living space. The design included a large statement central curved island unit choosing SieMatic cabinetry in a Sterling Grey finish matched with 30mm Corian Sparkling White worktops and a coved upstand for a seamless and luxurious look. The rounded island, which includes seating for 6-8 people, was designed to be a much-loved feature for the family; it distils the essence of the working space into a smaller and more efficient area whilst providing a lovely arc into the wider space.

10. Featuring a rounded design, and shown here in both Regiment and Copse Green and Hartforth Blue, the True Curve kitchen from 1909 serves the growing trend for those seeking to add warmer and more inviting elements into their interiors. Meticulously crafted and shaped, the curved cabinet door design pairs two doors together for a statement rounded island-end feature, which provides an area for entertaining. In addition, customers can opt for integrated chopping boards in either a Natural Oak or Walnut finish as part of the design.
