Creating curves with Caesarstone® is entirely possible. Here are two ways you can achieve this beautiful design look for your kitchen or interior designs.

Method 1 - Cutting A Curve

Asking your stonemason to cut your Caesarstone with curved and rounded edges, as opposed to straight edges, is an easy way to create a more fluid benchtop design. This look is becoming increasingly popular in today's modern home.

Using this cutting method presents an opportunity to sculpt your cabinetry in line with the curve of your benchtop, producing an elegant yet timeless design.

For the luxury homebuilder, Wisdom Homes, “simple curves create the perception of space and add a premium feel to your home”. You can view more examples on how to achieve this look over in our blog.

Method 2 – Thermoforming Curves

For the ultimate in grandeur, select stonemasons can create a curved shape with Caesarstone using thermoforming—the highly-skilled art of bending Caesarstone to produce a sublime curve across a whole slab.

Stonemasons proficient in this art can take one of two approaches to thermoforming – either curving the slab around a template or a surface. As with any art form, thermoforming requires plenty of time and patience.
