When you decide to furnish your bedroom in Japanese style, you must first think of minimalist style, which favors the light, space and quality of materials. The first distinctive feature is the floor, for which will chose the parquet, which calls for a more natural effect. The doors of this room can be made through the typical sliding panels, to make possibly harmonious with the rest of the furnishings in order to avoid excessive contrasts. The selection of materials and colors, therefore, must be made taking into account the overall effect.
For a true Oriental-style decor, the distinctive element is futon, the typical Japanese bed consisting of a mattress low in natural fibers, to be placed on tatami mats and that can be rolled up then about himself. This is well within the tradition and style but may be comfortable and familiar for us Westerners, whereby you can find similar solutions but more functional for our needs. The oriental feel, also, is made by the presence of low furniture and geometric patterns; the Japanese-style decor is not excessive but minimalist and aimed at promoting the well being of those who live by promoting a perfect harmony between man and the environment.
Additional pieces of furniture in a bedroom in an Oriental style are represented by bamboo or straw mats spread on the floor and floor lamps, preferably made of rice paper and the warm undertones. To create a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere in the bedroom is also important to allow the light to filter in a natural way, creating the right brightness in the room. The colors to be privileged are those in neutral shades, or those that harmonize perfectly with the nuances of nature (as green or brown, for example).
