Six Steps to Bring a Little Bit of Japanese-Style into Your Room
Are you a lover of Japan culture or are you just looking for a new design for your bedroom? In either case, we will show you a few ways in which you can transform your home into a Far East sanctuary.
Step 1: Colors. The main characteristics of Japanese design are simplicity and calmness. Colors that the Japanese use are neutral tones, beige, off-white and multiple shades of brown or gray. If your budget is limited, you can buy a discounted paint or use coupons, either offline or online.
Step 2: Walls. Wall decorations should be minimal. Frame a couple of photographs (you can find them at a dollar store) and paint them in a nuance similar to your wall. “Moon mirrors” are quite common in Japanese culture. You can search for one at a second-hand shop or at a garage sale.
Step 3: Windows. The windows should have off-white or white curtains. Similar to previous elements, these textiles are inexpensive.
Step 4: Tatami. Tatami is an important object in the Japanese culture. Tatami is traditionally made of rice straw and is used as a floor carpet in traditional Japanese-style rooms. Originally made for the nobility, tatami mats have become a very common aesthetic object in Asian homes. You can easily find tatami at low prices (starting from $ 45.00) through specialized online stores. Tatami looks great over any type of floor, and it is as easy as scattering the mats.

Step 5: Buy a futon. Japanese furniture is minimal and low to the ground. Futons are a trademark of the Japanese furniture, so you might consider buying one. Futons can serve as a bed and as a couch, are highly customizable and can be found at cheap prices from thrift stores, internet retailers, Craigslist, or larger furniture shops like Ikea. Your Japanese style bed should be covered with a neutral-colored silk bedding ( Recommend : AtHomeMart, Dorel Home Products, Coaster Home Furnishings ).
Step 6: Don’t overdo accessories. Keep a minimal tone and place a plant, such as a bamboo or a bonsai in neutral-colored vases. You can find in second-hand stores all kinds of trinket boxes, small reading lamps, candle holders and many kinds of Japanese antiques. ( Reccomend : 9GreenBox, Furniture Creations, Gift & Decor ).
