Japanese culture revels in its simplicity and brings in years of tradition, culture, style and space. As more and more people are looking for exotic ideas to design their bedrooms, Japanese-inspired bedroom designs are gaining popularity. The basic design of a Japanese bedroom focuses on maximum utilization of space with minimal clutter. The emphasis is on maximum relaxation with quiet surroundings.

The decor on the walls usually gives an earthy feel with brown, orange and light grey walls being the common colors. The simple color scheme accentuated with one or two bright paintings gives a nice contrast and lively feeling within the room. The bed is generally low, placed at the center of the room, very near to the ground, its color syncing with the walls. The sheets and round cushions on the bed create a neat look.

The Japanese put more emphasis on woodwork. Generally the window panes, doors and dressers are made of bamboo, maple and red pine. Depending on the size of the room it can be decorated with accessories such as Japanese lanterns, bonsai and dragon figurines. Lighting is another very important part of these bedrooms. Detailed attention is given to both natural and artificial lights. Usually they have large expansive sliding windows which bring in ample sunlight during the daytime and dimly-lit handmade lamps hanging from the roof during the night time. Of course the amount of light required in the room can always be adjusted. Flooring is generally done with tatami mats. These are made from rice straws and are very sturdy, allowing barefoot movement and are also easy to clean.
