Japanese Design Concepts to Add to Your Minimalist Bedroom

Let’s examine minimalist bedroom decor and ideas that revolves around the idea of Japanese minimalism and what it really means to downsize or minimize your bedroom.

From a traditional standpoint, Japanese home decor and furniture has always embraced simplicity and harmony in design, and values the principle of “less is more” and to decorate with only what is necessary.

The concept of having a minimalist bedroom can refer to adding only what is necessary to the bedroom. Items that evoke a function or practical use for everyday living.

Taking it a step further, extreme minimalism, described by Fumio Sasaki, author and fellow minimalist of the book “Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism,” takes account of everything in one’s lifestyle and leaving you with the extreme bare minimum. Meaning, living with the most basic and essential of items, being mindful of everyday actions and appliances and questioning its value or purpose. Basically asking yourself: “Do I need really need this or can it be tossed out?”
