Japanese Interior / August 1, 2018 / Milena Montanez.
In keeping with the themes which are recurrent throughout the traditional Japanese house, the typical bedroom centers on minimalist designs, allowing the craftsmanship as well as the style of the furniture to speak for themselves.
Bedrooms are almost always inclusive of a tatami mat floor, which is very comfortable to walk on. Upon these mats, the occupiers of the room can place their futons, which are flattened mattresses widely used in Japan as beds, as seen in the next photo.
Bed covers made of gorgeous silk are used to decorate the bed as well as keep sleepers warm and are commonly white in color with elegant floral patterns. Shoji is used in these rooms to accommodate more than one person if someone must share their sleeping space.
Thick, bold lines make their way into the bedroom style, as many people find the patterns calming and tranquil, appropriate characteristics for a room dedicated to peace. Decorations and furniture in the bedrooms include tansu chests and almost always adorned with photos, paintings, porcelains, vases, and other mementos or antiques that must be carried down through generations.
It is encouraged that the furniture, such as any tables or lamps, remain low to the ground to mirror the low height of the futon. Lamps and lighting fixtures, such as the one shown next, are also crafted to resemble the shoji located in the room.
