Furniture is of great importance for a Japanese style house – it should be super simple, with clean lines. The rooms have as little as possible home furnishing. Finally, it should not hinder the free movement in the room. The decor is in neutral colors – the walls are white, the furniture – made of light wood.

Japanese style homes can be created with very little effort and even on a budget. If you want to do that get rid of all clutter. Paint the living room in white, a white kitchen with handleless cabinet doors, a small sitting area with a low, rectangular coffee table made of wood would be the easiest way to re-create the balanced atmosphere of the style. A double bed with wooden frame in the bedroom, a futon bed, or a bed on a podium will add the right ambience. Decorate with only a couple of small bonsai trees and you are done.
