20 Beautiful Japanese Living Room Ideas To Make Your Home Look Oriental
One of the most popular and easily recognizable styles of Japanese home decor is the Japanese living room. The basic Japanese living room makes use of mats flooring instead of traditional floor coverings like carpets and rugs. The traditional Japanese design makes use of tatamis, small floor dishes that resemble chopsticks. These chopsticks-shaped mats are commonly found in traditional Japanese houses. The unique aspect of this tatamis-like floor fixture is that it doubles as a table; thus creating two great solutions for one low price.
Another widely used element of Japanese home decor is the use of bamboo flooring. Bamboo floors are relatively expensive than most types of tatami flooring but are known for their durability and strength as well as the fact that they are easy to clean and maintain. Because they are also great for floor decoration, they are also often placed in entrances and hallways of a house to add a touch of nature and warmth to the home. One thing to keep in mind about bamboo flooring is that it tends to get dirty very easily. Therefore, it would be wise to regularly sweep or vacuum it to keep it looking neat and clean.
Other popular styles of Japanese design include kimono designs and torii gates. The traditional Japanese design features doors that are usually attached to the front door of the house with no frame. They are usually raised and have beautiful oriental motifs on their exteriors and interiors. The doors of these traditional living rooms are usually kept shut and locked for added protection from intruders.
