Is it possible to have a round kitchen?

Is it possible to make a kitchen into a more round space, by adding to the walls in such a way that it becomes re-designed as a rounded kitchen space as opposed to something that is more rectangular in shape? Are there many practical issues to consider here? Thanks for your time.

"Very possible, and potentially very appealing from a design perspective. The key issue would be cost as everything would have to be made bespoke, and working with curves is much more time consuming, also there is potentially
A lot of wasted space fitting lots of rectangular elements( cookers, appliances, drawers) into a curved scheme"

"Anything is possible with the correct knowledge, information, materials and craftsmanship...
The idea is a fantastic idea, though you would obviously reduce the overall room space/size.
The units would have to be bespoke, but any good joiner/carpenter would have a range of solutions to do so without losing more space by having to use rectangular carcasses etc.
The comment regarding worktops is a fair one, and the best options would be solid wood or stone/composite though as with anything cost is a factor.
Something else to consider is the restrictions it would create in terms of plug sockets and isolation switches etc as they are rectangular and flat, along with any tiled splashbacks, which again due to dimension and form would leave you with very few options other than small-format tiles or mosaic.
Like I say, anything is possible, and I love the concept, so it would all come down to how far you wanted to go to create the look you have in mind along with a budget to fit it and do so?...
I've designed and installed round kitchens before and they're great features if done correctly and pretty rare!
Hope this helps a little"

"This would be possible but the amount of space that you would lose it wouldn't be practical, It will be like putting small squares into a large circle there would be gaps between the squares where it joins the circle wall and in between each square, so you would end up with less storage. Then when you have a countertop it would be very expensive to make a circle out of a straight worktop."

"yes, it's definitely possible. There is no work that cannot be done in decoration. good idea. a little more labour costs."
