Ja, varför har japaner tatamimattor i vissa rum? Det är mindre vanligt i storstäder (då har man max ett traditionellt tatami-rum). Vanligtvis mäts rummens yta i tatami-storlekar, inte i kvadratmeter som i Sverige.
Här nedan finns ett stycke som berättar varför
Advantages of Tatami (畳の利点)
Japanese-style tatami rooms do not have fixed beds, but rather people sleep on futons instead. A futon is a comfortable yet mobile type of traditional bedding that is laid out at night and neatly folded away during the daytime. This space saving technique means that, rather than taking up valuable space with a fixed bed, even a small room can become spacious.
Furthermore, sleeping on a futon is good for your health as they provide better support for your lower back!
Good for air quality
A chemical compound called Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is present in air and is harmful to the human respiratory system. By absorbing this pollutant into their surface, tatami mats have an important air purifying quality.
The scent of tatami mats primarily comes from the natural rush grass, which is said to have a calming effect that closely resembles a walk in the woods. This pleasant smell enables you to relax and breathe naturally.
Stimulates the nervous system
The characteristic smell and texture of tatami mats is beneficial to human health. It is said that the sense of smell is closest to the brain and the direct stimulation from the particular smell of tatami can help you to relax. In addition, walking on the flexible yet rough texture of the tatami surface also contributes to stimulating the nervous system.
Recent in-depth studies have shown that rush grass, one of the natural materials used to make tatami mats, has a natural anti-bacterial property. For example it has been shown to combat the E. Coli 0-157 bacteria that are present across Japan. Furthermore it is believed to prevent the spread of Golden Grape Coccus and other forms of E. Coli.
Beauty and harmony with nature
Tatami mats can significantly change the tone and lustre of a room as natural light and shadow mix together to reveal the delicate undulations on its surface. The reflected backlight highlights the beauty and subtle colour variation of the mat’s grain, creating a calming and natural atmosphere.
