Basics On Creating A Zen Style Room Design

Do you wish to redesign your room or home into an Asian-inspired setting? Why not try making a Zen room?

Zen interior design conveys tranquil and peaceful moods, a connection with nature, and distinct minimalist elegance. These are the key points to start with.

Flashy colors and clutter are eliminated. It does not employ the use of complex shapes and patterns, excessive and ornate furniture or excessive ornaments. In fact, Zen isn’t merely a style at all. Zen pertains to a pure state of being.

A lot of people associate Zen with the Japanese culture, but its actual roots come from China. It

focuses on meditation, inner awareness, and gaining enlightenment.

Creating a Zen your home is not difficult, but you must enter into the proper state of mind. The focal point is on the present moment, being calm, still, and simply being there.

The initial step is to clear the clutter from the room/s. Remove ornaments and trinkets hanging about. Clearing the clutter is important


in Zen for doing so helps in clearing the mind as well.

Be rigidly decisive when scanning through your stash. Decide only to keep those things that serve an important purpose. If you can’t seem to throw away some items, store them away out of sight.

Free your home from any extra furniture pieces. This includes the ones on the ceilings, walls, and floors, too. Anything complicated or fussy is not Zen.

When you think of color, choose soothing and calm hues. Choose earth tones, warm, and neutral colors only. Make sure to allow sunlight to enter the room. This will be the primary light source during the daytime.

Always keep in mind that space, light, and function are significant in a Zen home.
