Japanese style has become popular worldwide, and modern Japanese interior design has gained popularity in Hong Kong in recent years. This minimalist, natural, and warm design style is not only beautiful, but also very suitable for Hong Kong's small living spaces. You can easily create a serene, balanced, and comfortable space, where you can relax and wash away your stress after a day of work. But how do you create a Japanese-style home? This blog will introduce you to 5 major design principles of modern Japanese interior design, allowing you to easily create a pleasant home.
Japanese interior design incorporates a lot of wood elements, such as wooden screens, wooden walls, wooden floors, and wooden Japanese furniture. Traditional Japanese design tends to use darker woods, while modern Japanese interior design tends to use lighter and warmer woods, and incorporates curved designs, making the space closer to nature and adding a sense of tranquility and peace to the home.
Natural light is an important part of Japanese-style interior design. For Hong Kong homes with limited space, glass sliding doors or glass screens can be used to allow light to freely flow through the room, enhancing brightness and making the space appear larger and airier. Glass screens also give a more simple and fashionable feeling, helping to improve the home's style.
Japanese design principles for interiors emphasize simple aesthetics. Simple furniture can create a Japanese-style atmosphere better than ornate or designed furniture. In Japan, solid wood furniture is highly sought after. This type of furniture is made of solid wood joinery without using glue. This can add texture to the home, but it can also be expensive. If your budget is limited, you can choose veneer furniture or use large furniture such as dining tables or desks to create the same effect.
If you pay attention to modern Japanese interior design, you will find that it mostly uses soft and natural colors such as white, beige, light gray, and brown. This can increase the natural light in the room and give a gentle and calm feeling. In addition, one of the key Japanese design principles is to not use too many colors. At most, it uses 2-3 main color tones, giving a calm and balanced feeling
With Japanese style interior design, there is a coexisting with nature that incorporates natural landscapes into living spaces, but due to space limitations in Hong Kong, it is often limited to street views or building landscapes. However, you can also use garden landscaping, green plants, stones, and water as indoor decorations to add a natural atmosphere to your home.
