Japanese Style Apartments – Defining Efficiency
Japanese style interior design comes in close connection to the concepts of minimalism, aesthetics and functionality. Regardless of the living space, which is generally small, nothing is arranged randomly in a Japanese style apartment, each step practically answering a need. Wood and nature are always an integral part of these spaces which vibrate with harmony and serenity. Here are some Japanese style apartments in the images below, true lessons of efficient small space management.
The first images come from two apartments which present before our eyes as two open spaces in which wood is abundantly utilized and spreads light all across the plan. Intelligent built-in storage spaces and screens which separate various sectors of the living space are other elements which come with this style. Everything is, of course, flooded by natural light. In any corner, a plant adds up to the warmth of the wood while bringing vibrant color into the picture. Here is something to admire about the applied Japanese creativity.
Simple, with a bit of nature as a central visual element and a foldable screen which closes and opens the space to suit your liking. Everything is minimized, without affecting the functionality of the space.
The same recipe bringing wood in the foreground, a screen that ensures a minimum discretion, everything packed in a single room which houses the bedroom, the living and the kitchen. A perfect example of an efficiently organized space.
Low furniture, as close to the floor as possible, is another characteristic of the Japanese interiors. The same simplicity reflected by this Japanese style bedroom, in which natural light makes up for the absence of other accessories.
Again a Japanese style corner, with the bed placed on a raised floor, with wood visually layering the image and completely covering this space of intimacy.
Organizing is key to any Japanese interiors. The compact space is intelligently arranged by means of miniaturized elements so that to fool the eyes’ vigilance and perfectly answer all the needs of the dwellers.
The same organization of space which puts the stress of integrated storage spaces and corners of intimacy protected from the rest of the space. As we said, nothing is wasted.
