The single most important aspect of Asian design is the sense of harmony that it reflects not just among individuals, but also with nature that surrounds you. It has been an intricate part of the region’s culture and the use of a bamboo plant or some other green shrubs on those sleek counters gives your Asian kitchen a more authentic look. But, getting down to the ‘bones’ of it all, try to use bamboo shelves and Eco-friendly wood to give your kitchen a true Asian flavor that goes way beyond the cosmetic exteriors and add-ons.

Sleek Asian kitchen with simple and uncomplicated cabinetry

A bit of glass, shoji screens and similar styled panels, Shaker-style cabinets, smart use of concrete and natural tones that exude a more ‘earthen’ appeal are ideal for creating an Asian kitchen atmosphere. Most Asian kitchen forms are naturally sleek, highly ergonomic and perfect for the stylish contemporary homes and apartments. Minimalism seems like a natural extension of Asian design and hence you will never have to worry about the kitchen looking a bit too gaudy.
