Interior trends come and go over time, and one trend that has been popular in recent years is curved walls. They can be used by architects aiming to transform an interior space, or to excite an outdoor space, or perhaps lead your site along in a particular direction. Curved walls are extraordinary. They can transform a room, sometimes taking it to its full potential by the way they alter the space of a room and separate areas to maximise a room. If you hire an interior design company in Melbourne they will be able to recommend how to plan your existing space with a curved wall.
Let’s explore what curved walls do to the interiors of a room, and any challenges we think you may come across.
Curved walls encourage good flow.
Rectangular walls, if you think about it, are actually quite boring and predictable. Curved walls are non-conforming and anti-conventional, making it stand out as extraordinary and popular for those who have an artistic taste. If you are unsure on how the curved wall will function in your particular space then hire a commercial interior designer to come and advise you. Once installed you will find that curved walls encourage flow to the space. It can be decorated, covering it with interesting wallpaper, making it a feature with a textured finish, or getting really creative with a bookshelf or artwork feature wall.
Curved walls can highlight feature furniture pieces
By centering your furniture in the centre space that is created by the curved wall, then you will utilize the space more effectively, as well as creating a central space for people and energy to flow around. Highlight a statement piece of furniture, such as a dining table, a minibar, or a billiards table by putting it at the centre of the room. This can create magic in how this space is a source of centralized energy as your furniture is not squashed up against a flat wall. Just like how an arena centres spectators’ attention to what’s in the middle, set up yours similarly, to enhance connection and interaction more.
Create a curvy theme
Favourable curves can be incorporated into a theme. If the building is made up of curvy walls throughout, you may continue that theme through the house or commercial space. The outdoor walls may be finished with timber battens facades, and then when you enter the interior of the building you can replicate that indoors with standalone timber batten walls that separate the space. If a curved wall sits against a straight one, then it creates a very different look. You may need to consider furnishings and bespoke cabinetry and shelving.
Add a little zest to an interior
Besides customization and adaptation, sometimes, parts of the house or a room just needs to be flaunted. Add a little zest to an interior by being proud of your curved wall. Add some details to it by creating texture. Decorate with tiles, make a gallery out of it, or highlight a piece of artwork and shine a grand spotlight on to it. We all know how popular it is these days to have instagrammable areas to take photos these days, think about when your friends come over and want to use your ‘feature wall’ for all their pictures!
Curved walls may be the answer to your space having a better layout and flow, making everything fit better in the house, and even highlighting statement furniture pieces. Many contemporary designs and collaborations have proven that curved walls serve a home with unexpected interest and versatile impact. Curved walls can stimulate one’s mind into thinking outside the box. Literally and figuratively.
