Much like a Japanese garden, a Japanese style bathroom must be built with nature in mind. Utilizing greenery such as bamboo plants or mossy potted plants is a key element to creating the feeling that the peaceful natural world can exist within your walls. Placement of these plants is just as essential. Make sure that bamboo plants or potted moss is lined up in pleasing, lines that don’t overwhelm the senses. Lighting is another essential element in your Japanese-style bathroom. In order to create a space where your mind is free to relax, harsh lights and bold fixtures should be avoided. Keeping interior lines simple and accent pieces minimal is important in allowing for a calm and clear experience.
Updating your home, whether it’s a little touch-up or full remodel, can be an exciting experience that makes your home more enjoyable to live in. Not only does it provide you with the opportunity to step back and really think about how you want your home to express those things you love, but it is also a chance to learn something new. One of the most unique routes to creating a space in your home that has purpose in its design is to incorporate culture. Here we will consider incorporating a very tranquil and Zen culture to your home through the Japanese art of bathing. The bathroom is a space in the home that is used daily and the Japanese have redefined this room’s purpose over time from an efficiency-based space to an area where peace and tranquility reign.
