Step #1. Declutter

As we already mentioned, the Japandi interior design focuses on minimalism as a lifestyle. We live in hectic times and we need sanctuary-like spaces to retreat to. Simplicity, craftsmanship and functionality are important for being able to truly relax. So, start with making sure that each piece in your space has a meaningful purpose.

Step #2. Make Sure You Allow Access to Natural Light

The second step is all about creating open plan areas so there is a lot of light, as well as a feeling of calm and spaciousness. This is easily achievable if you buy low furniture such as coffee tables, chairs, beds, etc.

Although low furniture can add a sense of authenticity and excitement, do not fill your space with too many pieces. So, always prioritize quantity over quality and choose multi-functional accessories.

Step #3. Stick with Clear Lines, Neutral Color Palette and Natural Materials

Clear lines are an important characteristic of Japandi home design. Therefore, choose curvilinear, dramatic or rectilinear lines. In addition, fuse neutral warm colors (such as creams, oatmeals, beiges, etc.) with darker Japanese style raw materials and timbers. This will create a sense of cohesion and tranquillity.

Last, but not least, merge the lines between outdoor and indoor by using sustainable materials. These include marble, iron, leather, bamboo, wood, rattan, paper, seashells, linen, hemp, feathers, timber stools, etc. We also encourage you to bring in plants, candles, cushions, books, ceramics, etc. Items like this will remind you to be patient and appreciate what is.
