Having a comfortable, luxurious bathroom is a goal many homeowners have. Remodeling a guest or master bathroom is a chance to create a space that is unique to your style and needs. A popular design theme that many find peaceful is that reflecting a Japanese style. A key feature to Japanese bathroom design and style is the bathtub. Japanese soaking tubs are unique in that they are small and deep, and typically include a seat to allow the bather to relax in a seated position.
In addition to the sense of relaxation a Japanese soaking tub provides, hot water and a good soak have many health benefits. The stress-relieving properties of hot water are one well documented benefit, as are the many cardiovascular benefits. Hot water dilates blood vessels and improves circulation, which in turn speeds up the healing process for sore muscles and helps flush toxins from the body.
Japanese bathroom design tends to incorporate elements of nature in its style. Often greenery such as bamboo plants or mossy potted plants are included to bring an air of the natural world indoors. Lighting and color schemes are also important aspects to carefully consider when creating a Japanese-themed bathroom. Avoid harsh lighting and bold fixtures to create an environment that allows for a calm experience. Light hues of natural, neutral colors help create clean lines, adding to the simplistic beauty of the Japanese design.
When incorporating a tub into your distinctive Japanese bathroom design, there are options as to what is available. Japanese tubs come in a variety of materials to include, acrylic, composite, wood, stainless steel, and copper. The choices available allow for a myriad of Japanese design ideas to be explored and used to make any bathroom come alive with an Eastern flair.
