The Japandi style has been around for centuries and is still popular today. This style is characterized by the use of natural materials like wood, bamboo, stones, fabrics and earth-toned colors. The Japanese often use a minimal amount of furniture to avoid clutter in their homes as well. In this blog post we will show you how to incorporate these trends into your own home design.
Use natural materials like bamboo, wood, or stone for your flooring and walls
Japanese homes are known for their use of natural materials like bamboo, wood, and stone. This is because Asian culture values nature as the source of all life in a profound way that Western cultures often don’t share. The floors may be tatami mats or other types of flooring made from natural materials such as straw (sugitani), while walls might be thin panels made with rice paper covered with fiber paste to make them smoother than regular plaster wall boards. The combination of natural materials in Japanese architecture and design has led to many modern trends that are popular all over the world. For example, you might see walls made of bamboo or wood paneling with a lacquer finish instead of drywall. Furniture like low tables with built-in storage underneath them can be found outside, as well as inside homes, often featuring richly colored cedar lids on top to match their exterior; and attractive tatami mats will still sometimes feature prominently in floor plans for Westerners looking for an authentic feel when they travel overseas.

Hang up pictures, artwork, or mirrors on the wall for an interesting touch
Hanging photos, artwork, or mirrors on the wall is a great way to decorate your home in the simple Japandi style. Hang them up in places that are high enough for people to easily see when they walk into your space. You can also choose to hang something larger and more commanding over an area with low ceilings, like an entranceway table leading into another room. If you’re looking for extra storage while adding some design flair at the same time, then try using shelves. They come in all shapes and sizes so it’s easy find one that will work perfectly with your space as well as what you plan to put on it. The key is just making sure there’s enough height underneath where items won’t collect dust from the floor.
Keep your furniture simple
One of the first things to do when you are trying to create a space with less clutter and more zen is to keep your furniture simple. A lot of people have very cluttered homes because they buy way too many pieces for their living room, bedroom, etc., but if you take away the excessive pieces it will make everything look so much cleaner and clearer. This goes hand-in-hand with only buying what you need! It’s easy to get excited about new furniture or accessories that go on sale, but try not to let yourself fall into this trap unless there is something specific missing from your home that needs filling (a table, chair set). Even then try not overdo it! Simple can be stylish just as easily.
Don’t be afraid to use bright colors in your home decorating! They can help make any space feel more exciting and cheerful
Some people might consider it too intimidating, but if you’re bold enough to bring the colors into your home decorating, there are many benefits. If you have a dark room with low light that’s not great for working from home or entertaining guests, brighten things up by using yellow hues in pillows and throws. You can also add pops of color on shelves and window treatments. If you need an extra boost while studying or writing papers that will require long hours spent indoors instead of soaking up vitamin D outside, use blue-hued items as accents in those rooms where you spend most time-such as bedding sets and rugs. It’ll inspire feelings of relaxation without being drab like other colors.
In conclusion, Japandi style is a great way to change up your home with unique pieces. The best part about this style is that you can have any color scheme or texture in order to create your dream room. It fits all types of budgets and needs as well!
