Zen design can incorporate earthy elements (for example, water, metal and wood) and traditional Japanese style. The primary things to consider when designing with this concept are simplicity, peace and beauty. The bedroom should be a meditative, peaceful sanctuary. There should be no unnecessary clutter on floors or walls. Furniture should be simple, yet attractive. Designing a Zen bedroom design means that it’s more than designing for functionality. This design’s purpose is to provide a retreat, where the mind can be at ease. Accessorize the bedroom with natural elements. A tabletop fountain on top of a wooden stand adds the tranquility of water. Add a single candle in a decorative holder elsewhere in the room if you choose.
