Say "Konnichiwa" To Japanese Interior Design

A great way to liven up your home and breathe some fresh air into is to use some interior design inspiration from across the world. There are so many different trends and styles from various countries, so you should be able to find international inspiration no matter your usual tastes. One great option for most rooms is to go with a Japanese-themed interior design. The Japanese are known for their beliefs in all things zen and that everything should be as simplistic as possible. So, you can guarantee unfussy interiors that promote relaxation and wellbeing.

Are you ready to say “Konnichiwa” to a Japanese interior design? Here are some pointers to get you started.

Find Your Inspiration

If you are new to Japanese style and culture, it’s worth finding some interior design inspiration before you begin any redecorating. That way, you can see all of the different themes and factors that go into this kind of style. It also gives you a good idea of the parts of Japanese interiors that you like and would want in your own home, and those themes that you aren’t too keen on. You can find plenty of ideas and inspiration by looking online, flicking through interior design magazines, and even watching Japanese Tv shows and movies!

Go For Sliding Doors

One of the main things that make Japanese interiors stand out from all the others is the use of sliding doors. As homes in Japan tend to be small, the owners split rooms up using screens. They then add sliding doors in between the screens. So, rather than having a traditional Western-style door to each room in your house, you might want to switch them for sliding ones. These will also save you space as well as you don’t have to open the doors to a room.


Hide Your Clutter

The Japanese love minimalist designs, and that means that you won’t find a single piece of clutter anywhere in a house in Japan. So, you might want to figure out how you can deal with all of the clutter in your rooms if it is a big problem. One solution is to increase your home’s storage. If that isn't possible, it might be easier just to have a clear out and throw out all of your old belongings that you no longer need or use.

Boost Natural Lighting

Japanese style is also noted for light and airy rooms. The best way to achieve this is to bring in as much natural light as possible. Of course, you will be restricted by your windows, but there are ways to give the lighting a boost. For instance, adding plenty of mirrors to each room will ensure that the light is well reflected around each room. Using neutral colors on the walls will also be a big help too.

Japanese is a great way to bring some zen into your home. Hopefully, all the tips above help you achieve it!
