A Shikibuton is a simple mattress that is part of the Japanese minimalist style and therefore very interesting for every tiny living. In every home where you barely have space for a bed you might want to take a look at a Shikibuton.
In my first tiny one-room apartment back in Switzerland I needed to be creative to find a practical space for my bed. A Shikibuton certainly could have been the answer for my space problem. So, what exactly is a Shikibuton?
Is there any other interior design style that expresses more balance and serenity through clear lines and colors than the Japanese interior style? I think the Japanese style fits every tiny living, may it be a tiny house, a small apartment, even an RV or houseboat. It fits tiny living because it creates an uncluttered look that emanates balance and a deep love for simple natural beauty.
Here are some thoughts about how you can add Japanese style to your tiny home on a grand scale or smaller, as you wish and as it fits your tiny home the best.
