Asian Style Kitchen

Creating a kitchen with an Eastern vibe is about more than just decorating with Asian artifacts. Truly embracing Asian aesthetics means respecting the design fundamentals of the culture. This kitchen’s emphasis on horizontal lines provides the groundwork for its Asian-influenced design.

 

Designer Notes

Since crisp geometric shapes and natural materials are essential to Asian-inspired design, it was important for this kitchen to create a focal point that called attention to these design principles. By paneling the bar area and exterior wall of the kitchen in bamboo planks, a stunning focal point with Asian influence was achieved. To accentuate the geometric nature of the panel placement, perpendicular slabs of countertop were placed around the bar area. The work-area of the kitchen features cherry wood cabinets with a recessed paneling and a rich finish. Contrasting the dark sienna cabinets is a soft-colored laminate countertop meant to mimic soapstone. Porcelain backsplash tiles with floral prints provide the kitchen a touch of Asian décor, and the color of the tiles has tones similar to the cabinets. The flooring in the room is made from bamboo with a caramel finish, and has a similar look to the planks that surround the bar area. Finally, in the dining room there is a painting of Sakura blossoms on an orange canvas, which injects the space with color and another dose of Asian-inspired décor.
