Kick Your Kitchen Design Plans Up a Notch with Creative Curves

Give your kitchen design curves in all the right places

It’s no secret that the kitchen is a major area of focus for new homebuyers. They’re willing to spend a little more on a home with a stellar kitchen, but they’re also willing to turn their backs on an otherwise perfect home if the kitchen isn’t just right. So, when you’re planning your kitchen design, you want to make it extraordinary.

You want to create a kitchen that makes even your standard house guests want to put down an offer every time they visit. Sure, you can start with smart cabinet design, high-end appliances and an open floor plan. If you do those things right, they’ll get you a great kitchen. But you don’t want a great kitchen, do you? When you’re done, your kitchen design plans should create the pièce de résistance that leaves you on the winning end of an aggressive bidding war. How can you do this? Get creative with curves.

If you need some inspiration, just take a look at some of the designs our master builders have recently completed.

This kitchen design draws you in with the inviting curves of an arched entryway and then knocks your socks off with its centerpiece: an artfully designed groin vault. You’ll notice that every opening to this room is flanked by an arch. Two of those archways are accented with recessed lighting to help the homeowner make the best use out of each workspace – a perfect marriage of beauty and functionality.

Yes, barrel vaults are the simplest type of vaulted ceiling. But that doesn’t mean they can’t get a little fancy in your kitchen design. Take this kitchen, for example. The simplistic barrel vault is repeated over and over and covered in stone to create a one-of-a-kind look that will add interest and value to any home.

If you’re limited on space or just looking for a more classic look, a dome ceiling above a kitchen island is a great kitchen design trick to have up your sleeve. As you can see from the kitchen designs below, you can dress up the dome with light fixtures, molding and creative painting techniques to make your domed ceiling a unique work of art.

When you’re looking to upgrade your kitchen, remember that anything is possible. The designs shown above are just a few ways you can use our archway and ceiling kits to create a masterpiece that will leave everyone in awe of your home. When you’re building a luxury home, your kitchen design plans should never be cookie cutter. Get creative with curves and you’ll not only add value to your home, but you’ll design a room that everyone wants to call their own.
