Less is More: Japanese-Inspired Interior Design Ideas for Your Home
When it comes to designing your home, there are many elements you can borrow from the Japanese style of living. Centred around minimalism, harmony, and serenity, Japanese-inspired homes are becoming increasingly popular. Here are some Japanese-inspired interior design principles you can incorporate into your home:
To create a more spacious and serene environment, start by removing any unnecessary clutter and only keeping furniture you use. Additionally, it is best to stick to one centrepiece per room. You can also use neatly arranged boxes and containers to keep frequently used items within reach while maintaining a minimalistic look.
Your window decorations can also contribute to a minimalist aesthetic by reducing visual clutter and distractions. Cordless blinds can help you achieve a minimalistic look by eliminating the need for visible cords and strings, creating a cleaner and more streamlined appearance. The unique pleated design of Honeycomb Blinds creates crisp, clean lines that also greatly complement a minimalistic design.
Japanese-inspired interior designs typically rely on neutral, earthy colours such as white and dark brown. Plants are a great way to bring natural green accents into a space.
You can also use the colour of your window decorations as an accent. Darker colours are often paired with earthy and neutral tones, making Timber Venetian Blinds a great choice for shades. They can also be effortlessly adjusted to allow your preferred levels of natural light to enter your space.
The use of space is quintessential when it comes to Japanese-style interior design. In Japanese culture, the concept of Ma or empty space is deeply ingrained, and this is reflected in their interior design aesthetic.
To make your space feel bigger and more inviting, you can use window decorations that help to illuminate a space. Veneta offers Honeycomb Blinds, Roller Blinds and Roman Blinds that feature a Light Filter fabric choice, which filters the sunlight and casts a gentle, natural radiance throughout the room while still maintaining full privacy.
