Simplicity and Elegance Through Zen Design

Seeking greater tranquility and peace? Bring principles from Zen Buddhism—natural design, stillness, subtlety, and asymmetry—into your home with a zen kitchen.

Zen Kitchen Design

While Zen design is most often equated with the bath, the guiding elements of a zen space can be applied anywhere. Zen design is all about balance and harmony, and bringing together soft, earthy colors and natural materials. We find that a zen kitchen can be ideal for bringing people together to relax and interact.

What is zen design?

You may not instantly recognize a space as a “Zen design.” The intent is not to incorporate a Japanese aesthetic, but to create a place to truly relax and unwind.

Zen Master Bath Design

In a master bath, a Zen design means luxurious showers with multiple spray heads, muted colors, simple cabinetry, natural travertine or marble, and tiles with soft, flowing designs. And never forget to add a pop of green. Life is central to zen thinking.

Zen Design Ideas

– Smart storage and clean lines impart a sense of calm.

– A bit of asymmetry adds visual interest and keeps the kitchen from feeling too “perfect.”

– Natural wood and stone connects with the world outside.
