The main ideas of a Japanese living room are minimalism and elegance. Unlike traditional European and American styles, Japanese living room design is very simple, uses very few decor units, laconic furniture and some rugs. Traditionally Japanese living room furniture foresees only a futon, a very low table, some chairs or even floor cushions, a rug and a couch.
It is supposed to place a large rug in the room middle. Bonsai mini-trees and real bamboo will help much to reveal Japanese living room style. Use some plates with Japanese characters – hang them on the walls. Do not use various cabinets and shelves. You may buy several baskets from bamboo and place there in your room. Keep in these baskets some stuff you may use often, remote controls and small books. Most of Japanese living room ideas suggest using natural colors, a lot of white and pink, red and black colors. When taking a decision about window treatments, buy blinds from bamboo. Always remember Japanese room is always neat. Slutter should be taken out, and all surfaces must be kept clean.
