Japanese Influence Kitchen

A traditional kitchen doesn’t have to cram ornamentation onto every surface. With a touch of Japanese influence, this traditional kitchen takes on a minimal look with clean lines and simple details. Open shelving and little upper cabinetry keep this space light while paneled dark cabinetry provides a strong foundation for traditional style. For a look at the products used to accomplish this sleek style, check out the design board below.

 

Designer Notes

This kitchen features traditional style with fresh, light design elements that evoke Japanese design. The Crossville Savoy white gloss tile mimics a shoji screen with its rectangular vertical pattern. Open shelving demands simplicity and order from the dishware it houses, and the surrounding windows flood light in this U-shape kitchen. Squared corbels carry this minimal and structural motif, suggesting a subtle nod to contemporary style. Paneled cabinet doors provide a foundation of traditional design, and the dark carbon finish gives the room weight. Formica countertops offer the look of Calacatta marble with easy maintenance, and polished chrome offers a bright touch to traditional pulls and knobs.
