Arcs and curves add a distinctive, functional design to wood countertops.

They are a great option for some homeowners, both for their uniqueness and practicality. They can also provide more surface area that will come in handy during parties, events or when cooking for big groups.

Curved countertops give your kitchen a distinctive look, providing a truly, unique and personalized design. They may also facilitate a spacious bar-like seating area, great for hosting friends or having a quick bite to eat.

Aside from style, the lack of sharp kitchen counter corners may also be a desirable safety feature to consider when making renovations. Both the tops and bottoms of your kitchen counter can be curved and graded to help create a safer environment for children.

If you’re interested in getting an arced or curved countertop, but are not quite sure where to start, we can recommend a variety of established design elements to make the scoping process easier.


Included in these are Roman arcs, which reduce the arc length to create a shorter curve

As shown in the photo above. An ornate edge profile combined with a Roman arc is visually dramatic. Inverted arcs on corners are another unique tasteful design option. Round pieces can be manufactured to any diameter circle you desire, whereas rounded tops may help soften the look of your counters as well.

If you have your own design in mind, your countertop can be shaped to any custom size. This could facilitate a truly unique design, which may be especially useful if you have a uniquely sized kitchen. It’s important to work with a team that can adapt quickly and implement custom designs successfully.

Feel free to let us know if you have any other design elements in mind, and we’d be glad to assist.
