Japanese style in an interior

Today the interior of the house or apartment can be made practically in any style, and among judges of east culture it is considered one of styles most popular today Japanese style. The basic rule of this style is: "anything superfluous and casual".

To this style the space and the maximum harmony are characteristic. Thus in the foreground the beauty of the nature and natural materials always acts. These details create the valid atmosphere presented in the form of distinguished lines and various laconic forms. All this reflects nature details, to what the Japanese culture aspires.

Japanese style very strongly differs from traditional western style. This style offers absolutely other type of perception and in a different way uses space. In this interior usually there are no chairs, sofas, beds on legs. Thus it is necessary to lie and sit on quite low surfaces, but not on a floor. For many — it, of course, inconveniently and unusually. Besides, Japanese style in an interior is badly combined with various souvenirs, family photos, pictures habitual to us. That is in it there is no everything practically that gives to a habitual interior identity.

Main attributes

Together with readers of InfoAdvisor.net we will consider the main attributes of Japanese style. One of such attributes are wooden sliding doors and partitions from both parties which traditional are made of rice paper. These partitions protect the house from whims of the nature and fill it with a characteristic opaque luminescence. In order that air in hot day well moved, special lattices from a cane are used. Such partitions are called yosido. These partitions as much as possible and thus carefully give the chance to clean border between rooms and thus to ship it in luxury of the nature.

The partition of a fusum which is made of a thin frame and of rice paper also belongs to attributes of this style. These partitions divide and unite space. Similar screens can be decorated with pictures with the image of the dancing geishas, the blossoming trees or soldiers Samurais. Besides, such screens fill up functions of wall cases and something are similar to sliding wardrobes which exist today. The main composite center in the classical Japanese house is always the center of the dwelling. Exactly here the low little table, a cotton mattress usually have. Besides, here on perimeter ikebanas, various cases and paper floor lamps can be located.

General stylistics

In general at first in Japanese style it is unusually to our person to be in an interior. After all the subjects which are in the room are located so that they was convenient to use sitting on a floor. The most part of rooms in such dwelling is more intended for protection against bad weather whims, but not for normal activity of the person. In such dwellings for the organization of space tatami mats are used. They are usually made of long straw ribbons, then jam straw and after that are sheathed by a strip from a matter. These subjects are used everywhere.


One of the most noticeable characteristic features of Japanese style is lack of bright paints. For such interior are more acceptable dairy, beige, cream, pearl and dark brown shades. In the rooms executed in this style it is often possible to see hieroglyphs which are written by black paint on a white wall. It looks very unusually. Also unusually white ceramic cups on a timber floor of black color look.

Japanese style in an interior on the color scale is most of all similar to classical style, with its pastel tones in finishing and snow-white columns. Red and green colors too are used in a Japanese interior, but these colors are presented here in lighter shades. These not so bright colors and even the muffled.

Color scale of Japanese style are paints of sea foam, pozhukhshy autumn foliage, the blossoming Oriental cherry, the sky without clouds, the full moon and coastal stones. Besides, to Japanese style special style of curtains which it is accepted to call panel curtains is characteristic. And they are usually executed in color scale similar to the interior. Curtains in this style have usually strict forms, in them there are no folds and frills. These curtains usually have the same size, as well as the size of a panel. For their tailoring use natural materials: flax, cotton, silk. Thus curtains are, as a rule, located on window perimeter.

By the way, Japanese curtains can quite be used not only for decoration of a window, but also for a door frame. Curtains from dense fabric can be applied even as a screen which separates one zone of the room from another.

The Japanese interior in a classical look usually has practically no furniture, but today such interiors meet extremely seldom. After all the modern person simply cannot do without habitual pieces of furniture completely. For this reason Japanese style offers the style of furniture. The Japanese furniture represents a stocky design. Furniture in spite of the fact that is low, rather convenient.

The floor in the traditional Japanese dwelling is always executed from a tree. If there is no opportunity to make a floor wooden, for a floor covering it is possible to use a bamboo laminate quite. On a floor it is possible to lay an ordinary mat. It is good if you have an opportunity to get the real Japanese tatamis which represent reed wattled mats. These mats usually jam straw or synthetic cotton wool. Thus edges of such mats are usually sheathed by fabric.

The ceiling in such interiors has to create a certain feeling of ease. To reach such effect, it is possible to use opaque monophonic stretch ceilings or instead of them the false ceilings made of opaque glass.

As for walls, they in Japanese style represent the same screens with wooden frames which are tightened by rice paper, fabric or a usual canvas. As imitation of such walls at brick or concrete walls it is possible to use easy wooden panels, wall-paper with stylish bamboo drawing or wall-paper with the stylized ornament. Instead it is also possible to paste on walls monophonic textile wall-paper.

Modern Japanese style

Modern Japanese style is more adapted for the modern western person. So, the mattress usually rises by a high podium. Instead the stylized bed can be used. Thus on a bed there are pillows which are not peculiar to classical Japanese style at all. In an interior Japanese style is most often applied in bedrooms, but not in nurseries or living rooms. It is perhaps connected with that it is easiest to present a bedroom in this style. Besides in the bedroom executed in Japanese style it is usually much more convenient, than in an office of the same style.

It is possible to make, of course, in the same style and a drawing room, but here it will be slightly more difficult to execute it. After all it is necessary to find balance between habitual comfort and subjects of a Japanese interior. The most necessary things are the sofa, a chair, the TV and accessories. These things can be habitual design.

As for traditional screens which are, in fact, the card of classical Japanese style, their use in a modern interior, as a rule, does not make sense any more. These details will be actual only if in Japanese style the studio apartment is made out. In such room sometimes it is required to partition off the general room. In usual apartments of a functional purpose at such screens simply is not present. They can carry out only decorative tasks. Of course, if you wish to give to an interior more theatricality, these screens will be to a place.

It is natural that modern things in such interior has to be moderately. Otherwise at you not the apartment in Japanese style, and shop of Japanese goods will turn out. Therefore it is necessary to adhere to some stylistics nevertheless always.
