1)Add Elements of Natur in Your Japanese Style Inspired Décor
Japanese culture is all about the respect and love for Nature, so it’s time to bring a little bit of the outside to the the inside of your house. If you want, you can add traditional Japanese plants such as bomsai or bamboo, that will definitely add a special touch to the environment. Another way of bringing the outside inside is through large and expansive windows or sliding doors – that are the must when speaking about japanese style!

Like we said before, Sliding doors are one of the top features of Japanese décor. You can also choose to go for the sliding screens – the idea is to create a big space where you can socialize. The Japanese culture usually had sliding screens, because the houses used to be small and it was a cheap way to have different rooms and privacy, when needed. One important thing about screens is that they di not block the natural lighting.

“Most of Japan’s furniture is low to the ground, or when it comes to tea ceremonies, floor cushions usually forgo furniture. Mimicking this design aesthetic can be as simple as incorporating low-to-the-ground furniture into our homes, such as the simple side tables and bed frame featured in the image.”
5)Minimalistic Japanese Design
