Moreover, a clutter-free Japandi kitchen promotes ease of maintenance and adheres easily to its style.

Simple but elegant Japandi design favors clean lines and a clutter-free sense of space. Try to select cabinetry, furniture, and appliances with straight or simple curved lines, minimum decoration and the least visible handles and buttons.

The Kitchen is one of the easiest areas in the house to accumulate clutter due to its frequent use and numerous cooking items. The basics of storage for Japandi style are hiding utensils and appliances as much as you can in order to emphasize simplicity and maintain a tidy kitchen. If you decide to display items on open shelves, keeping consistency in size, shape and material can help create an organized appeal. If your kitchen space is limited, it would be prudent to select items appropriate to what your cabinets can hold.

2. Choose neutral color.

Japandi's color palettes mainly consist of warm muted colors, such as beige, off white, gray, and soft earthly colors like brown and dark green. Kitchens with especially large furniture such as cabinets and a dining table, should keep a neutral color scheme to enhance a calming and serene atmosphere. Mind that strong intensely colored tableware or appliances can overwhelm or even visually disturb a Japandi style house. If using accent colors to add character to the kitchen, balance is a key; use these colors selectively and thoughtfully. Black accents often match well with natural Japandi styles, particularly with specific furniture like dining chairs and lighting equipment.

3. Make natural material items part of the kitchen.

Japandi style values natural beauty. Integrating natural materials like wood, bamboo, stone, and other organic materials into the kitchen design help to contribute create a warm, inviting, and cozy cooking space. Natural materials can be adopted from countertops and cabinet doors to small accessories including utensils and kitchen ware. Ceramic and clay objects contain unique textures and earthy tones that add an artistic touch to the kitchen. Another way to bring a touch of nature is by setting some indoor plants in the kitchen area.

4. Pay attention to the lighting.

Natural light is essential for Japandi style and helps to connect the outside world to the interior. Maximize natural light by keeping windows unobstructed. Instead of heavy drapes, consider sheer curtains or blinds of light color that allow in light. But it may be challenging to secure plenty of natural light sources in a kitchen with limited space. In that case, a sizable mirror can reflect the available light and help make the space appear larger. At night, ambient lighting is necessary. Select soft and diffused lighting.

1. Simple cabinet handles

2. Handcrafted plates with neutral colors

Handcrafted items always add rustic charm to the space. Japanese modern dishes often have soft colors as well as natural rough texture.

Fresh green colors can provide a natural accent, enhancing the simplicity of Japandi style. You can set out a small pot with herbs, some bamboo stalks, or a variety of your favorite indoor plants. Greenery works well with natural furniture.

5. Pendant light

Soft light can help create a relaxed state of mind in the evening, making the house feel cozy and comfortable. Pendant lamps can gently illuminate certain desirable spots, while the slender cords provide an elegant vibe. Consider natural materials like paper or fabric shades that emit a soft glow.

We hope that with these tips, you can now try transforming your own kitchen in a Japandi manner that matches your taste and life style. Remember, the essence of Japandi design lies in simplicity. It should maintain balance and harmony.
