Caroline Pinkus is one of the trendsetters who have had a curved kitchen and can’t speak highly enough of the benefits of the one we fitted and helped design at her home in Stanmore.
Caroline said: “I decided to design a curved kitchen as I am a very enthusiastic cook, and a curve enables you to have everything in reach without spending too much time walking back and forth.
“It is not only extremely practical, but looks cutting edge and contemporary, without the cold clinical feel, as the curve softens the space and gives the room interest.
“Cameo Kitchens came highly recommended many years ago and we put in our last kitchen in with them, which lasted 25 years, and although still looked pristine, was rather worse for wear.
“Over the years they have installed many kitchens in various properties for us, all of which look fabulous and are of good quality.
“I worked on the design with a very patient Paul Mitchell, who unlike other kitchen designers, actually took my ideas, requests and demands on board and did what I wanted, my ideas being quite specific at times.
“This is a quality that you don’t find in many other companies, who try and push products. Over the years I believe that Cameo have indeed moved with the times, embracing the latest designs and equipment.
“They are not afraid of change, which in this day and age is both rare and encouraging.”
In terms of practical benefits, curved units offer a nice soft flow around the main working area of the kitchen.
They are more expensive than straight or L-shaped units but they do look fantastic and create a practical yet visually appealing result.
