Elements from nature. Asian design places a strong emphasis on bringing the outdoors inside through plants and natural motifs. Consider adding touches of glass or acrylic that has bamboo, grasses or leaves embedded within it, as in the shoji screen–style panels that front this kitchen window. You could also line cabinet panels with split bamboo stalks or add potted bamboo plants or wheatgrass to infuse the space with a sense of life.
This is one of the most popular kitchen cabinet hardware styles of the past 10 years. You will see these as often on classic cabinets as on modern flat-panel ones. They most often make the biggest statement when they’re run as long as possible on the door or drawer. This style has end caps that are flush, so that you don’t have little bits that stick out and catch the pocket of your pants. Anyone who has ripped a pocket while walking briskly through a kitchen knows what I mean.
