Lovers of rustic style and zen atmospheres a bit exotic, you will love it. Indeed, the wabi-sabi philosophy values imperfection, therefore raw materials, natural fibers, old patinated objects, and craftsmanship… and it comes to us from Asia.
It adapts to all styles. A microdose is enough to give relief to even a hyper contemporary decor. And it applies to every room in the house. Through this article, I suggest you explore some ways to adopt a wabi-sabi bathroom with us. You will see that we can integrate a few touches of “wabi-sabi” without falling into the extremism and create a more Zen decor.
We attach a lot of clichés to the style of wabi-sabi, such as the fact that it is dark. In fact, not necessarily. As wabi-sabi is not a style, but a philosophy, he also likes light colors. The colors just need to be natural, red but the color of clayey earth.
Some tips for a successful wabi-sabi bathroom
- CHOOSE RAW MATERIALS, such as stone, wood, concrete, with imperfect finishes.
- CHOOSE DECORATIVE ACCESSORIES MADE FROM NATURAL MATERIALS: bamboo boxes, wicker baskets, jute rugs, etc.
- CAREFULLY CHOOSE YOUR FLOOR AND WALL COVERINGS. The best is to opt for noble materials, otherwise prefer dark and matte elements.
- TAKE CARE OF THE LIGHT. Choose natural or, failing that, flexible lighting.
- DO NOT HESITATE TO DO RECOVERY, whether for materials or furniture.
- THE TAPS SHOULD BE CHOSEN for their sleek design or their aged material such as copper or brass.
The wabi-sabi philosophy, since we no longer speak of style, likes rustic, industrial, tropical atmospheres… in fact all rough styles which favor imperfection. Bright atmospheres are also very suitable for the wabi-sabi style. The style is softer, more zen, more hygge. All you need is pretty natural stone sinks placed on a mottled piece of furniture. Fans of the wabi-sabi style love concrete, which is not a very natural material, but the raw finish is perfect.
