Japanese culture has an immense love for nature and they show this love by adding some indoor plants to their place. So, if you want to incorporate Japanese style in your home, then bring some traditional Japanese plants to your houses such as bonsai, palm, or any other sleek plants.

Also, Japanese people have large windows in their homes that allows a person to have a view of the beautiful nature outside. So, add a ceiling to floor windows in our home for a view of the landscape outdoors.


Japanese entry is called a genkan where the guests are greeted and also where the shoes are removed immediately after entering the house and replaced with indoor slippers. Also, this entryway has a shelf that is used for storing footwear.

The entryway is usually simple with wooden elements, lots of natural lighting and stone tile flooring. The main key point is to keep your entryway uncluttered.

Meditating Place

You can truly add Japanese style to your home by adding a zen meditating place where you can peacefully meditate, do yoga or have tea. Just find a quiet place in your home and place a large floor cushion for comfort and enjoy the serene environment.

Paint this room in calming colours or as said before, add the colours of nature. Also, play some calming music and this will surely help you with mental peace.

Sliding Doors Or Screens

The cost of housing is quite high in Japan, therefore people either own a small house or rent one. Therefore, they skip the usual doors that will take up space to swing back and forth and add authentic Japanese screens which are also called Shoji that will save space.

Also, these screens don’t block the natural sunlight as these are made with fine translucent paper held within a wooden grid. Modern forms of this screen also have glass panels inside wooden frames.
