Amusing Japanese Bathroom

In Japan the main purpose of taking a bath, besides cleaning your body, is relaxation at the end of the day. The bath is the main centerpiece for any Japanese home, so much like the fireplace for any American. It provides warmth and a good sense of family bonding aside from the cleanliness it brings.

The typical Japanese bathroom consists of two rooms, an entrance room where you undress and which is equipped with a sink, and the actual bathroom which is equipped with a shower and a deep bath tub. The toilet is almost always located in an entirely separate room.

One of the primary installations in a Japanese bathroom comprises of a deep tub, which is used solely for soaking purposes, not washing. Without this, a bathroom is considered to be useless. The tub in a Japanese bathroom is, more often than not, made of seasoned wood. These days, you will find on-demand water heaters in most of the Japanese bathroom, which heat water only when required. So, this will be another major installation that you need to pay attention to, while creating a Japanese-style bathroom in your home.

If you want to create a traditional Japanese bathroom, forget about shower and showerheads. They make use of pails to wash themselves and enter the tub only after cleaning themselves thoroughly. However, you might use showers if you want a contemporary Japanese bath.

A lack of ambient design is very common with most Japanese bathroom design, as they prefer to have a sense of harmony, the way they need to relax without reminding them of their jobs. Although most designers also introduced some modern hardware like an LCD screen to watch while dipping in hot water or simple pictures, they would use any space to their advantage without being too overbearing.
