Asian-Inspired Kitchens: How to Design Your Own

Asian-inspired kitchens are becoming more and more popular in the U.S., but many people have no idea how to design their kitchen in an Asian style. Luckily, with a little creativity, you can create your own beautiful space that is perfect for you and your family!


Asian-inspired kitchens are becoming more and more popular in North America. They have a unique look that is elegant, modern, and classy. If you want your kitchen to be Asian-themed but don’t know where to start, this blog post will help you out! We’ll cover everything from the color palette to the layout of the room.

What Defines Asian-style Kitchens?

When it comes to Asian-inspired kitchens, there are a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost, you will want to focus on creating a space that is both functional and beautiful. This means including plenty of storage space as well as incorporating interesting design elements into your kitchen layout. Additionally, it’s important to consider the colors and materials that will be used in your kitchen. In general, Asian-inspired kitchens tend to use warmer colors and natural materials such as wood and bamboo.


The Asian design aesthetic has a clean, simple, and subtle beauty. Clean lines are the essence of Asian design, but not in a boring way. The decorative details are used to complement these traits but never overwhelm them which results in an interior with a layered minimalistic appeal.

Color Palette

The overall feeling of a Zen Asian-style kitchen is calm. The color palette reflects this with the use of whites, soft neutrals, and darker accents that add depth but never compete for attention in an already minimalist space. Pops of color can be used to add interest and life to the space. Sparing use of bright colors, such as green or blue will go well with your natural décor while still being eye-catching!


Don’t forget to add a little bit of green if you want your space to be complete. You can do this with plants or by adding other elements that remind you of the outdoors, such as bamboo mats.

Kitchen Cabinets

A balance between form, color, and height is important in Asian design. The cabinets should be balanced with one another so as not to appear mismatched. They also need to have an appropriate level of harmony for the space they are being used in order not jar its users’ eyes from their surroundings too much.


Shaker cabinets work well because of their simple lines and lack of ornamentation – everything you need for an Asian style. White cabinets provide a neutral backdrop that works perfectly with this style. If you need more inspiration on white shaker cabinets, be sure to check out our amazing collection!

Countertops and Backsplash

Granite and quartz are natural materials that have a wide range of advantages such as durability, cleaning ability, and low maintenance. We would recommend dark-colored countertops like black or gray to match the rest color scheme in your kitchen!


The backsplash is an opportunity to incorporate natural elements into the room. For example, pebbled or stone backsplashes will achieve this and concrete tile can also work most often with subtle colors that blend in nicely with other features such as wood flooring for a warm feeling of comfort during your mealtime!

Flooring and Lighting

Wood is the most common material for flooring in Asian-style kitchens. Flooring tends to be organic and warm.  Asian-influenced kitchens often have plank hardwood floors that have different color tones to them. Bamboo is a common choice for the floor.


Natural light is a big part of this design and it’s not just for brightness. The connection with nature can be felt through these large windows without panes or blinds, which allow you to see outside easily while still being able to connect with what’s going on inside your home!




If you’re looking to design your kitchen with Asian-inspired elements, these tips should be helpful. We suggest using natural materials like wood and stone for a warm feel. Using light colors will bring the space alive. For more help designing your kitchen in this way or any other don’t hesitate to contact us!
