Curved flooring transition between kitchen and family room?

Does anyone have a step down between their kitchen and family room that is a curved arch instead of being squared off? If so, I would love to see pictures.

Thank you!

A friend's mom did this. No pics, but it was a nice touch.
I'd be a bit careful about the edges. People tend to step off badly if it narrows or the path of traffic is such that were one steps it's not a normal step.

I don't know if that made any sense, but in the long run it looked pretty.

Here's my curved steps from kitchen into family room

And from family room into hallway

Hope this helps.

Thank you both!

@monkeyjac - the picture of your curve in the kitchen to family room is exactly what we are looking at doing except we only have one step instead of two. Is the edge of the curve a wood transition? I think that looks wonderful! We have wood floors in the family room, but will have tile in the kitchen; I think the wood at the curved edge would look really nice just as you have it. This is very helpful - thank you again!

Monkeyjac, your curved steps look really lovely. I also think the wood edge detailing probably helps the eye see the narrowed step so it looks quite safe.

Yes, the edges of the steps are wood. This was for two reasons: so you could see where the steps begin easier and because there was no easy way to end the tiles at the edge of the steps that looked finished.
