The functionality of each house is indisputable - it is not just a certain decoration or imitation of a particular style, but a way to achieve comfort and coziness. Many achieve this by using Chinese style in their homes - it is based on simplicity, nature and energy.
Chinese people make the most of the internal space of housing, making niches for storing decorative objects. The rich furnishings of the kitchen, the interior of the bedroom and any other room are exquisitely completed with lacquer tables and carved racks for vases and decorations.
Knowledge of what a house should be, the features of its aesthetics and functionality originated many years ago; to our time, they have improved due to technological progress. Due to the fact that Chinese culture sees only contemplation in everything, the house is obliged to symbolize this quality. Chinese interior is very intricate, but at the same time practical.
The design uses low furniture, all items and products are made from natural materials (mainly wood), preference is given to sunlight, windows are free from curtains (in rare cases it is possible to use bamboo blinds), artificial lighting is dim.
Chinese style in the interior has no sharp corners, no bulky furniture items. The basic material for interior design is durable and elastic bamboo.
Making furniture, the master uses a complex technique of multi-layered varnishing as an element for decoration; carving for lacquer is today a spectacular way of decorating. The furniture of the apartment in the Chinese style is harmoniously combined with the surrounding objects, complemented by lacquered decorative tables used as supports for vases and room decorations.
The main elements of the kitchen interior - a table and chairs - for a long time were made only from natural materials (as a rule, bamboo served them) and were rectangular in shape.
The main piece of furniture for the bedroom in the Chinese style were rectangular loungers and chairs. The main distinctive feature of the Chinese style in design, preserved in our time is the lack of curtains on the windows.
Traditional Chinese interior is harmony, conciseness, aesthetics, everything that contributes to the creation of a cozy and relaxing atmosphere. This style of an apartment or room is a mixture of characteristic accents, and therefore this interior can not only reveal the individual possibilities, preferences and tastes of the apartment owner, but also give a certain atmosphere and make an impact on any guest.
Colors for the Chinese play an important role and occupy not the last place in creating style. As a rule, red (fire dragon color), black, blue, green, yellow are used.
Even if you think the resulting interior is perfect, anyway, without the most important element, all objects will remain just a set of furniture. The main element - the lighting, which the Chinese attach the most importance. The positive energy of any room depends on the location of the lamp or lamp, the direction of their light.
The basic rule for creating traditional Chinese style is naturalness. Small tricks can help achieve this goal: you can put a lamp behind an easy screen or it is better to install several small lamps so that they imitate the “torch of fire”. In this case, the traditional lanterns will open the secluded corners and will complement the interior of both the kitchen and the bedroom.
